Endure the short hike, it’s worth it”

From Yufuin station you could take a bus to Takemoto bus stop, then take a hike to the hostel. Taxi is also recommended if you’re in a group. Don’t worry, the following day the host, can send you to the bus station or the train station. Anyway the hostel is clean and the cheapest you could get in Yufuin despite the location. The host is very friendly and can speak English well. The dinner and breakfast is also well done and worth the price. The onsen is open 24 hours, so you can take your bath at your own leisure. Not much to do at night but the host brings you out for a short walk which was fun. Lovely accomodation and definitely recommended.

The location is supposed to have great views. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow it for us. The staff is super friendly and caring, the food is amazing and great value for money, and the onsen is great. The room smelled like humidity, though, and it's a bit hard to get to if you miss the only two buses that run in the afternoon.

Country Road Youth Hostel is a bit out of Yufuin, but once you arrive you are rewarded with amazing views of Yufuin below. The dorm was clean and comfortable and the hot spring was an added bonus. I opted to eat dinner there, and it was tasty and filling. I walked, but they do offer a one-time shuttle to and from the JR station. The owners were friendly, nice and spoke English. Compared to what places cost in Yufuin, this hostel is a good deal!

Really nice service, and people can speak English very well so you don't have to worry about language problem if you can speak English. They have a really nice mountain view. There is a Fireflies tour in the night and that was most amazing exprience in my life. And they also brought visitors to Yufuin festival because the date I visited was the 'festival night'. (7/20). and I heard they have a program climbing up the mountain or..something like that...... I couldn't join, but you should ask about that if you are interested (I heard Yufuin Country Road Youth Hostel has a homepage. you can visit this homepage). I met many nice people and had so much fun in this place. Thank you so much to the people who were in this youth hostel the night I visited.

Enjoyable stay! ”

It was one of my favourite places to stay through out Japan. The room is very clean and tidy. The owner and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They’ll tell you everything very clearly at the counter when you check in, i.e the dinner time, when to check out…etc. The dinner was very delicious ( which you have to order in advance ) They located half way up a mountain but it’s very easy to get there by taxi (only 5 mins and it’s not expensive only around 8xx yen ). Really nice mountain view especially during sunset. The hot spring is really nice as well. I also joined the free night tour with my roommate and it was just memorable :) They will drive you to the JR station from the hostel every morning @ 8:20a.m Given the affordable price, I will definitely stay here again if I am back to yufuin and I would like to recommend this hostel to all of you :)

Cleanliness, environment, location

I came in the summer, not a peak time to visit Yufuin. There's not much people staying so the place is kinda relax. I ordered dinner and breakfast, which were awesome! It's a mixed of traditional Japanese & western dishes. The location of the hostel is very scenic both in the morning and at night. Ryo was so helpful and he likes to make everyone's stay very memorable. And the onsen was perfect and relaxing too. It's not near the Yufuin town proper but the travel is worth it.

perfect dormitory and little spa

i think there is just 2 backpackers in Yufuin. so it's really hard to stay there if you are alone. it doesn't matter if you are over 2 people, you have chance to choose the hostel which u want. Anyway i had booked this hostel before arrived. i really appreciated to being at the hostel. it's comfortable and cozy and there is little spa. so you can spa when you want. In the dormitory there is a Tv, a couch with small table and locker. the staffs of this hostel are kind. if u stay there for a long time, u can get some help for making a plan in Yufuin from the hostel staff. he will recommend some places for you! :-)

the food, the views, the hosts

what an amazing place with wonderful food which wouldn't have been out of place in Kyoto. It is half way up a mountain,above the town so you need to take a taxi from the station (not expensive). The hosts are kind and friendly and organise occasional evening activities; ours was a trip to a shrine in the dark...memorable. the Japanese style bathroom arrangements work well and the bathrooms are clean. Be prepared to feel emotional when the hosts sing 'Country Road' when you leave.

Enjoy my stay at the hostel though i walk all the way up to hostel, the road is quite steep and uphill and recommend taking a cab after walking through the small town at Yufuin JR Station. I took up the option and pay for my dinner and breakfast and it's very delicious. (roughly 1750 yen). There's free transport to JR station from Hostel @ 820am.
