  • Great hostel in lovely part of Kyoto called Gion! Great dorm although the night i stayed i was kept awake the whole night by 2 snoring idiots?? Left the hostel at 6am due to snoring but this made for a wonderful quiet time around Giesha town! Great staff! Good dorm with good shower and nice duvets however the A/C on all night makes things a bit cold? Good pc with free internet and hot water and microwave to cook noodles which they sell among other food items and drinks! Really good place!

  • It is in an OK location and is definitely a cheap place to stay in Japan. Not exactly capsules but rather just bunk beds. The location was good and it had a kitchen available which is always a plus!

  • -A cheap place to stay in Kyoto. Within walking distance to several attractions and restaurants. -Very comfy beds and sheets. A nice air-conditioned room. -We were given a security safe for our valuables, but anyone could potentially enter our mixed dorm room (4F) because the door was unlocked and on a separate floor than the reception desk(3F). -there were ~12 beds in our mixed dorm room which were very close together. We had privacy curtains, though

  • A very nice hostel, in a very nice area, with very friendly staff. Which leads me to say : a very good choice. Only (little little) negative point is the small space between the beds in the dorms, which is not much practical when filled with people's luggage. Again : a small detail, quickly forgotten in front of all the good aspects.

  • Good hostel, friendly and helpful staff, good location. Dormitories are very good, AC works well to keep temperature down when it's hot and humid outside. Small but good common area, easy to meet other travellers.

  • Located is one of the oldest and most cultural district, Gion, A-yado Gion is 5 minutes walk from a bus stop, 10 minutes walk from the closest subways station and around 25 mins walk from a major train station (JR station), although a little difficult to find as it is in a office/condo building. Upon arrival, the receiving staff was super friendly and provided much information about where and how to get to different attractions. Free map! Super clean and warm atmosphere in the common area!
