  • Stayed in a Japanese traditional private room - Pros: Uses an electric lock, staff friendly and willing to start conversations, VERY clean (almost like a higher end hotel), cheap considering the size of the room we got (a decent 8 tatami mat size) and washrooms were immaculate. Cons: Located on the south side of Kyoto station (more residential area compared to the north) but still a 2 minute walk from a subway station, no elevator (private room was on the 5th floor).

  • My favourite part about this hostel was the staff. Very friendly and helpful! The place was very clean and had a great kitchen and common room area.

  • Room was a bit musty the first night but better the second. Still slept okay since the beds and such were comfortable. Could do with a lower setting on the AC and some fresh air.

  • Excellent, warm and genuinely useful greeting by Yuria. Lots of tips given on what to see and do, and how to get there. Clean beds and linens and facilities. Would definitively stay here again!
