Aso Base Backpackers

Reviewed 2 July 2014

This backpackers is great - the hosts are very welcoming and helpful, the place is very efficiently run, the common area is very cosy, there is a lovely little verandah for evening drinks, and everything is spotlessly clean. All in all a great place to stay in Mt Aso and very highly recommended.

Room Tip: We chose a private double room - very comfortable and worth paying the price.

It is the best backpackers hostel I have ever stayed at. You will never forget the unique atmoshere, cosy rooms, tidy facilities. Although some rooms do not have doors, your privacy is highly respected. If you need any advice or help, you will be given there. Definitely, they will make your stay unforgettable.

Have stayed here twice, once with friends and once with family visiting, and was not disappointed either time! One of the best hostels I have been in hands down. If you visit in the winter the wood stove in the common area is always going, and the hostel itself is so welcoming. Great reading corners, spotless and fully stocked kitchen, laundry machines, super warm duvets on the beds, kind staff willing to help, lots of parking, across the street from an onsen and combini, grocery store in the area, and only 20minute drive to the national park area. Would go back to aso just to stay again!

This hostel well deserves all the good reviews. It was such a treat to stay here! One of the cleanest, warmest, most charmingly and well-designed hostels there could ever be. It was a relaxing delight to stay at - even the hand soap smelt of peach! And the kitchen... well, I think you just need to visit it!!

Room Tip: I stayed in a woman only bunk-room - very comfortable and fine.
