Our Youth Hostel is located on mid-hill. There is no din-and-bustle around YH, so you will spend a great relaxing time in calm and fresh air. You can see an amazing night view of Yufuin city in the dining hall. Outside starshine will be also welcoming you. Of course we have a hot spring bath, and you can take it 24 hours!! We are looking forward to having you!!

When you reserve beds/rooms by email, please let us know your full name, YH membership, nationality, dinner and breakfast. Thank you., This building is of an old Japanese design and here we have a hot spring which you can use. The water contains many minerals which will make your skin very smooth. The hot spring is available for your use 24 hours a day!
Also, all of the water at my Youth Hostel tastes very good because it comes from a well.
Please come and stay with us to experience the relaxation and beauty of Yufuin!

What travellers think


The staff was very nice. The host also asked me to join for soccer with locals in the evening which I enjoyed a lot. The hostel looks very nice and the rooms are nice too. I stayed in a 4-bed room where I was alone. There is also a very nice hot-bath in the basement where you can relax. The only downside is the location. You have to walk up the mountain about 30min or pay for a taxi. There are rly nice onsen nearby but if you want to explore a bit, you have to walk a lot anyway since Yufuin is quite spread out. Overall I think this is the best hostel I have stayed. Highly recommended.

it would be great if there are more pick up drop off service provided as the location is quite far away from the train station.
