Arrived at the hostel by tram from the station, we could not find it at first so popped into one of the nearby shops and the assistant was more than happy to guide us in the right direction. Our first reaction was one of pleasant surprise, we thought the hostel looked more like a traditional minshuku. As soon as we entered we were greeted by our smiling host, he was very friendly with very good english. As we were the only guests on this day we were shown to the large tatami room (normally for 4 people) eventhough we paid for the smaller room. There was a large very well equipped kitchen on the ground floor and a large common room on the first floor with a mega size tv. The showers and toilets were very clean. And we were also able to view Kumamoto castle all lit up at night from the the rooftop of the hostel. Our host very kindly drove us to the station the following morning.
Overall it was a very comfortable stay and would have liked to have stayed longer.More
