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.
