Lonely Planet review

This well-run youth hostel is about 3km west of Onoaida, nestled into the forest. Accommodation is in either Japanese- or Western-style dorms, and the shared kitchen and bathroom facilities are spotless. Get off any southbound buses from Miyanoura at the Hirauchi-iriguchi bus stop and take the road towards the sea for about 200m.

Our independent authors have visited Yakushima Youth Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Yakushima.

Regarding mobile phone, both NTT Docomo and AU have coverage around Yakushima YH.

Near our hostel are three 'onsen' (hot springs). One of them is the famous Hirauchi Kaichu Onsen, which appears during low tide, when the receding waters leave a natural pool. After a long, sweaty mountain trek, our visitors can refresh themselves in the hot spring while chatting with local people.
