This waterfront hostel is superbly situated, looking across the Kanmon Strait to Mojiki and up and down the waterway. There is a common area at reception on the ground floor but the focal point of the hostel is the top floor, divided between a kitchen and an outdoor terrace where one can sit and watch the passing parade of merchant ships.
Facilities are ok, the building having been gutted and refitted on the cheap. The gaps between slats in the bunk beds are large but a comfortable position is possible. The dorms and some private rooms face the road and Akama Jinju shrine, not the sea. The second floor cafe also has a sea view.
I was going to mark it down on location, having arrived in Shimonoseki after dark with little information and taken a ¥1200 taxi ride to get there. It turns out it's not at all hard to reach, by bus or on foot, but neither the hostel website or Booking.com give good directions. From Shimonoseki JR station any bus from stand #1 will pass Uzu House - ¥230, get off at Akamajingumae stop. On foot, from the east exit, turn left and then right on the main road. Continue on this road to the waterfront and keep following the waterfront. After 40 minutes Uzu House will be on your right, opposite Akama shrine.

The hostel was very clean and tidy. The location was also nice , just along the sea, so you can have the wonderful view from the rooftop maybe with some drinks! The staff were also nice. I was not very lucky cause the observation point closed but then the staff told me they can drive me there so we together went there, had fun and watched the very beautiful bridge and sea view. Thanks very much to the staff and we really had a good time :)
