  • It's a renovated building, with the shower and toilets near or outside the main walls. Very atmospheric, though the dorm I stayed in featured bunk beds instead of futons. Some of the rooms are pretty cold in the winter months - ryokan-style hostels are probably not ideal for those sensitive to the cold. There was one small computer, but it was rather slow. In warmer months, I think it would be an excellent value for the price.

  • The host is super kind and helpful to give information of my trip, even with a suggested plan for sight seeing in Kyoto and nearby cities. The whole environment, specially the Japanese style sitting room make me feel like home. The location is another highlight. Convenient to find and get there from Kyoto Station on foot or by bus.
