Great guest house in Ishigaki”

Location, staff, convenience

We stayed in two different rooms at Emix (this review is for the dorms). The room has three sets of comfortable bunk beds and there's enough space for your suitcase or backpack. The bathrooms are shared but they're right across the hall. The guesthouse is clean, it's a good place to meet other travelers, and it's in a good location just a couple blocks from the bus stop, restaurants and shopping. They have snorkels and bicycles that you can borrow, a washing machine, and several kitchens that you can use. Nao is a fantastic host and we had several barbecues on the rooftop terrace during our stay. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ishigaki!

Great guest house in Ishigaki”

Location, staff, convenience

We stayed in two different rooms at Emix (this review is for the Japanese-style tatami room). The room is large enough for three people and has a closet, a small TV, and large windows that let in ample light. The bathrooms are shared but they're right across the hall. The guesthouse is clean, it's a good place to meet other travelers, and it's in a good location just a couple blocks from the bus stop, restaurants and shopping.

Cheap, a bit worn, good location”

It was the cheapest option and located right in the center of town, 5min walk to port and airport bus, loads of food options and a conbini nearby. Best option for cheap stay in Ishigaki. Bed is however shaky and facilities overall a bit worn out, but that's what I expect for this price. Staff was friendly, however English is very limited.

Great place to stay!”

Really friendly staff, good location and great place to meet people.

I have stayed here on two separate occasions and think it is the best place to stay in Ishigaki if you are backpacking and want to meet like minded people. The staff are friendly and helpful and one has even spent a few years abroad so has a good command of English. There are plenty of local eateries around (the owners even took me to a great place on my first night) and the boat pier is five mins away - great if you are day tripping to the surrounding islands. All up I can confidently say you will feel welcomed here and enjoy the relaxing and friendly atmosphere!

Cool owner leads to great vibes, and excellent location too!”

Great staff makes for a great place to stay, and in this case, the owner makes this hostel awesome. He was a backpacker himself, and lived in different countries, so he knows what guests want and expect. Speaking excellent English is a bonus in this part of the world - he helped me book rental cars, tours, guesthouses in other islands. The facilities are nothing special, but they do the job. Showers and toilets on each floor, and kitchen on each floor as well. Places were kept clean all the time. There's always someone hanging out in the 3rd floor lounge, willing to start conversations even with the language barriers. In the evenings, there is inevitably a bottle or 5 of awamori being passed around. And if party goes past the 23:00 light out time, we move to the rooftop patio! Also, great location. Next to public market, and 5 minute walk to bus terminal and ferry terminal.

Comfortable stay”

Location, free bicycle rent, common area

Had a comfortable stay at the guest house. 2 minutes from the bus and ferry terminal. It's got a nice common area to meet other travellers (mostly Japanese). There was a sushi party on the first night I arrived. Staff are friendly but don't offer a lot of recommendations for things to do on the island (there isn't a lot to do other than water activities, really). Two free bicycles available for use was a great plus. Stayed in a dorm room which was clean enough, some long term guests staying there. Bathrooms were clean. Overall, a good stay and would come back.

Nice guesthouse with excellent location and staff”

We stayed here for few nights. We found that the room is pretty neat, small though, but everything is fully equipped, got the kitchen with microwave and stuff. Location is excellent, is just located inside the main shopping street and very nearby the ferry terminal. Staff service is perfect, we locked our key in our room on the last day, and the girl, who was still in sleeping condition, helped us to call her boss to come open the door for us. One downside for this guesthouse is that, all the rooms are very close to each other and sitting room is also. So you can hear everybody laughing and talking loudly. Not much privacy in this scenario. And some other guests look pretty weird. Fortunately, the rules for this guesthouse is that sitting room will be closed and all lights will be turned off after 11pm. So this is acceptable and with this price, it is worth to stay here for like 1, 2 nights.

Great value and fantastic social hostel”

value, location, conditions

I'll start by saying that it is not easy to find this place. The entrance is located in a shopping arcade and from the outside just looks like a door to a house. But if you look up, you can see the signs hanging from the wall above it. Once you do find it though, you'll realise how centrally located it is, and how much freedom you have while you stay. No curfew, and lots of facilities in the hostel make it a perfect place for backpackers or late-nighters. There is also free wifi so you can plan your next day's trip. I had a good experience and would go back again.

In addition to the very good location, each floor of the hostel is provided with a kitchen, which is rare in hostels. The owner Nao San is easygoing and friendly. Though sound proof is not good, most of the time the guests were cooperative and did not make much noise during my 4-night stay. Very satisfactory in general.

Location is superb, rooms are nice (nothing too advanced but you get what you pay for and everything is clean and usable, it sure was good enough for me), the host and the employees were very nice people and if you want to do some snorkeling or diving you can book a tour at the host's tour company and get 10% off. You can also borrow bicycles for free and although they're a little old, they do the job. Oh and there is a rooftop terrace with hammocks to hang out or eat your breakfast (at least that's what I did). All in all five stars from me!
