  • the hostel and staff are very nice and speak very good english. the only drawback is that the toilet and shower are in the basement, which is a bit inconvenient, but no big deal.

  • The staff were really nice, although the place is a bit old, it is got everything a man needs. i had a great time bonding with the staffs and the live-in volunteers there. They treat you like family.

  • Location is good. Bus stop is 3min away and convenience shop is nearby. If you like to experience Futon and tatami, this is the best place. It sits in residential area. It's quite and safe. There are many stairs to go up to bedroom and down to washroom. It's ok for me. The guesthouse staffs are friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is clean and the kitchen is available for cooking.

  • The staff (i.e. the two people I saw) were accommodating and spoke great English. I got a Western-style private, and it was very homey. No curfew, clean facilities, small lobby where people like to hang out. The location of the hostel, while convenient to other places, is a good 20 min. bus ride/40+ min. walk to Kyoto Station. That, and it's a little dark walking back at night, since the hostel is down small side streets. That being said, I never felt unsafe walking back,even at 1AM. Thanks!

  • Very courteous staff who allowed us to check in earlier than planned. They also kept an eye on our luggage the day we checked out but would not leave town until late in the evening. Mighty cozy traditional Japanese guesthouse which was 4 minutes walk to the nearest temple and omiyage (souvenir) shops. Very close to "downtown" Kytoto.
