Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Just 1 minute walk from beppu kitahama bus station, famous tendon shop is just next door, 5mins walk to takegawara onsen. Room is good and coffee are provided FOC. However, it is high time to change refurbish carpet as they are old with stains and smell.. onsen needs a little upkeep as well.

Good dormitories & Convenient for transportation
Located near Kitahama bus centre amd 10min walk from train station so easy for transport links. Also close to YouMeTown so easy for shopping. Inconvenient to only have showers on ground floor as part of onsen. Also inconvenient to have no sink in the single female toilet so have to use the one in male toilet which could be embarrassing if someone were using urinals. Kitchen area small but seemingly well equipped, I didn't cook here. Free tea/coffee appreciated. I was in bunkbed dormitory and it was very cold of a night, however clean and well equipped. The look of the place is authentic which is nice from a tourist point of view. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Variety of things able to be hired including yukata and towels.
