          The most clean and tidy backpacker that I ever stay.”

          Aso Base backpacker has a very good location, only 3 minutes walk from Aso station. It also the best backpacker hostel that I ever stay. The room, the bathroom and toilet is sparking clean! They even provided hair gel, facial wash, face lotion and more that I never saw these provided in other's hostel. It is great for couple or solo traveler because you can have a good rest in this hostel after a long day trip. The owner is friendly and nice, and their dog is cute :D Definitely will stay in this backpacker when I back to Aso.

          Probably the loveliest hostel I have seen. The common area is so warm with good atmosphere, I made some new friends there. Facilities are very clean and well designed. It locates just near the bus station which is very convenient to get from Kumamoto and to the volcano.

          Things we love about it: 1. Great location 2. Best lobby, kitchen, public area. 3. We paid slightly extra for a room with a view, oh wow we love it! 4. 4 bathrooms and 4 shower rooms is never crowded! Things we were a bit worried was the wall is super thin. We could hear our neighbours VERY CLEAR. But lucky everyone went quiet about before 10. So we had a wonderful sleep.

          Nothing to complaint about. Enjoyed my stay a lot with the nice host (who is fluent in English), cute neighbour's dog. Rooms, toilet, common area, kitchen facilities are all very well kept. Best part is, you get to enjoy free flow of self made beverage. The apple tea was best. The location is very convenient as the bus station, convenient store, onsen house are within walking distance. There were tourist information centre and a decently big market place next to it selling all kinds of food and local delicacy.

          It's located very near to Aso Station. It's a good choice for a night sleep here to explore Aso. Kitchen is very well equipped and the room is clean. However there's a wooden smell when you enter the room and you can't set the temperature of the air cond. Overall a pleasant stay

          We stayed here after climbing mountain aso. The place is clean and nicely facilitated with good location, however the staff is extremely unfriendly, never smile, will take hours to slowly explain their rules. Especially the Chinese lady, stops in your way not allowing you to move to the room until finishes... Children not welcome at all. Not allowed to even enter the dormitory area. forced to be separated.

This place is super cozy, clean, cute and homely. They provide public kitchen, free tea, luggage store, washing machine and nice balcony with Aso mountain view while relaxing on the couch.

          Close to Aso Station and Konbini. Lots of ammenities provided, free tea and coffee, food available to purchase. The staff is very friendly. This guesthouse very much feels like hostels in Europe, so if you are looking for Japanese experience you might prefer a different place. Apart from that it's a nice hostel to stay for your trip to Mount Aso. The only inconvenience is that the water at the sinks automatically shuts off every couple of seconds and doesn't get hot. So it's difficult to shave.

          This guesthouse has to be one of my favourites. Almost everything(location, facilities and cleanliness) was impeccable and we liked it very much. The owner paid close attention even to the tiniest details, ensuring that our stay will be a pleasant one. It’s located very close to the station (about 3 min walk) so it’s a convenient gateway to the Mt. Aso area. I would highly recommend anyone to stay in this hostel if you’re visiting Aso.
