Quiet and clean guesthouse”

It was the perfect location for both sightseeing in Naha and outside the city. The Kenchomae Station, Ryubo Department Store, and Kokusai Street were all within a 5-minute walk, making it very convenient, and the path to the hotel was well-lit and safe. The meeting point for the daily tour buses was mostly at Ryubo Department Store, so it was also very convenient for using the tour buses. The bedding in the room was clean, and the shower room, lockers, and other facilities were all well-maintained, which was really nice. There was one face towel and shared amenities such as a hairdryer, cleansing gel, cleansing foam, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, skin lotion, and lotion provided. There were also disposable items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, cotton swabs, and hair ties in the washroom. Breakfast was available at the cafe on the first floor, where I had a morning set with toast, a drink, and a salad set for around 350 yen to 400 yen. There were also convenience stores, restaurants, and cafes near the hotel, so you could eat there as well. The staff were friendly, and most of the guests were generally well-mannered and considerate. Anyway, it was a hotel that I chose after a lot of consideration, and I liked it. If I come to Naha again, I would consider staying here again.

Best buck for your bucket!”

The hostel is one of the best cheap hostels I have ever been to. The beds are larger than average with a nice thin wall around and a curtain for privacy. The showers, lockers and everything was clean and well maintained. The location is just a few minutes from the bus station and train station. It is also very close to downtown just a few minutes walk with 2 very near by cominis. It also doubles as a nice cozy cafe downstairs. Best value for money, I highly recommend it 👌

Best hostel in Naha”

They are professional. super clean. comfortable bed, nice shower area and locker area. Everything is great. If anything can be better, that is, all the sleeping areas are on the second floor and there is no elevator. So be ready for carrying your luggage up. But I guess, it is manageable. I did it. I will go back if I am travelling by myself in naha.
