This is hands down, the best hostel I've ever stayed at. From the moment I walked I could see it was a clean, friendly, respectable and sociable venue. The staff were very welcoming, the common room / kitchen area was large with all the facilities you could hope for, the dorm was a decent size with plenty of privacy and storage for your gear, and the bathrooms were all clean and efficient. It's only a 3 minute walk from Aso station, which means super-easy access to the mountain. I hired a bicycle from the hostel and had one of the best days of my life cycling and hiking around the top of the volcano. They also have discounted tickets to the nearby onsen, which is PERFECT after a days worth of exploring. Altogether a fabulous stay in an equally fabulous part of the world.
