Here are a few budget accomodation spots for those looking for a bit of fellowship and good times with other travelers while on vacation.
Guesthouse Churahama - Located right on the beach, this guesthouse attracts many divers here on vacation. One of the most recognized dive sites in Okinawa - Sunabe No. 1 Point - is right outside your door. Dormitory - 1,500 yen. Private 2,500 yen.
Oyado - This guest house is located in the hills of Chatan, overlooking the ocean and the surrounding town. Nice view and nice extras like free rental moped and bikes. Sorry about the Japanese only webpage - ask us for help with bookings. Dorm rooms - 1,800 yen. Private rooms available.
Hamby Resort - A 5 minute walk to the Flea Market and Araha Beach in Chatan, this guesthouse is super clean and operated by a very friendly staff. Single rooms are available. Free bicycle rentals, free rice and food stuffs, etc. Sorry, no English website available. Contact us for help with bookings. This is our personal favorite about a 20 minute walk from the shop but we pick-up here every morning.
