Aso Youth Hostel Reviews
Cheap, but decent place to spent the night Jul 23, 2000
My first hostel experience ever. And most likely my only one. Not that it was a bad stay for 2 nights at the Aso Youth Hostel.
But I prefer more privacy and sleeping (at the time back in 2000) with 10 people in 1 room, isn't something I would do again. The bathroom was shared, but like the rooms, men & women were separated.
Overall my stay here was okay to good. The beds weren't that comfortable, but after sleeping on tatami floors for several nights, this was decent enough. No meals were included, so we had to get to our food & drinks at the nearby station.
The rooms were big, but it had bunk beds. Looking at newer photos online, I noticed they renovated the rooms. Our room was more dark (colours) and it was also wider. I was surprised that the beds were long enough for my height.
The owner back then was very friendly and really service minded. He picked us up from and brought us to the train station and when part of our group decided not to stay for a 2nd night (they wanted to see Nagasaki), he gave them a refund for 1 night.
For 2450 yen (around 23 euro or around 30 US dollars) at the current rate, you can book a dormitory for 1 night.
