What travellers think

Travellers that stayed here think this hostel is best for

  • Eco-tourism
  • Nature-lovers
  • Relaxing
  • Unique atmosphere


Yakushima is a great place - and Yakushima YH is in the South of the island - in a very rural place. This has natural trade-offs. For a shorter stay, Miyanoura is more accessible - for a longer stay and visit to the South, Yakushima YHis a good option. Friendly staff, and Japanese meals also part of the package ... I was nearly a week on Yakushima and stayed in both.

The hostel is really beautiful, location is close to the waterfall (not walkable) and hot springs (2.5km away). However far to hiking areas and food, so be prepared if you plan on using the public bus. You can rent a car but need an international license. Staff are friendly but little english here.

Quiet and nice, but self-cooking seems not to be what they want you to do. Compared to all the fancy stuff In the common room, the self kitchen is very poorly equiped.
