Very good location if you're taking the ferry toYakushima - terminal is just a 10-minute walk away. Also a 10-minute walk to a tram stop connecting with the JR station. Bar/lounge area is very nice and pleasant. Price for the wine was moderate. Wifi worked well. I stayed in two different dorms: the 12-bed mixed dorm (capsules) is quite good...

Easily to be reached from train station or even tram station. Bus station nearby. The rooms are not as small as in similar hostels. However, due to the nature of the city and Volcano nearby, the volcano ash is even in the rooms and the walls are therefore bit grey. Showers are clean, toilets as well. Refridgerator in the main...

A very simple hostel with tired sanitary facilities. The bedding is clean, the dormitories are small and there is some noise from the busy road. The price is not high, but it shouldn't be in my opinion.

I stayed for three nights, the location is great with ferry ports (to both Sakurajima & Yakushima) and tram stations nearby. The room is clean and people are friendly. Just one thing I am not quite satisfied with, its super loud and noisy when people speak in the common area on 2nd floor. All-in-all, its good for a short stay.

The staff here are friendly and the location is ideal for the ferry/jetfoil ports, plus a bed for ¥1,800 is almost unheard of in Japan today! However the male dorm is 12 bed and there is a real lack of space, so guests can feel on top of each other. There are also only two showers and two toilets for...

My experience here wasn't that great. First of all, I sent a courtesy email to the hostel before my trip advising that I'd be arriving on a flight in the evening, so I wouldn't be checking in until 9 or 10pm (reception closes at 11pm). I already indicated my arrival time when I booked, but wanted to remind them of...

Good location right near Tenmonkan in the heart of Kagoshima. Comfy bunk beds with curtain and reading light. Washrooms and showers were always clean. Helpful staff who may not be able to speak a ton of English but will help in any they can. Great value.

This is a lovely little guest house. It's warm, cheap, clean, and welcoming. It's also in a very convenient location - a five minute walk from Kagoshima South Port / Dolphin Port, and also near Tenmonkan. The only thing I'd have liked to be warned of ahead of time is the stairs. There's no elevator, and the narrow stairs go...

The Green Guest House Kagoshima is the most exciting hostel which I've ever seen in my life. The hostel itself convinces with very good service and a beautiful hotel lobby with a bar.

It is 2 minutes on foot from the high-speed ferry terminal. It excels in the access to the solitary island such as Yakushima Island and Okinawa. Best downtown ' tenmonkan' is good located in Southern Kyushu, that is, walking range. BAR establishes it as an annex in the first floor part. Sakurajima is good at the view from the rooftop.
