Taketomi Guesthouse and Jetaime
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I booked for two nights but only stayed for one. Firstly they took my money and then went through the house rules with me in English - after this not one person, neither staff nor guests spoke one word to me (or each other). The toilet was "out of order" with seemingly no attempt to fix it, and I was directed to public toilets 100 meters away - no fun in the rain. No discount offered for this massive inconvenience, or offer of refund for leaving the place early because of this.
The bunk beds are rock hard with no reading light or privacy - a flimsy old and torn curtain to the dormitory and an old broken bamboo blind to the window with people walking past able to look in. Rusty corrugated iron roof and dirty walls, filthy ashtrays rarely emptied.
All the comfortable seating in the common area was occupied by people sleeping or laying full length, leaving only hard bamboo benches to sit on. TV on from morning to night, mostly with no one watching.
No hot drinks available, a few pot noodles or dried food was all that was on offer.
Don't go alone, especially if you don't speak Japanese.

Room Tip: The beds closer to the bathroom are not overlooked from the street.
