  • Very good value given other choices in kyoto. Prices for accom in kyoto is quite steep in general. The hostel is carpeted almost everywhere. But the carpet smells a bit, with mites that causes me to sneeze.

  • it isnt too far from the train station and its right in the midst of the central shopping area and it is close to a bike shop that does a 500 yen per day rental for a good quality bike which, imo, is probably the cheapest youre gonna get in Kyoto. Absolutely loved my 3 days stay there, you get a lotnof privacy and the beds and nice and soft.

  • I have stayed at hostels before, but this is has been my best experience yet. The hostel is easy to find, the staff is friendly and helpful, the beds are comfortable, the abundance of showers and bathrooms are clean, and the personal lockers give peace of mind. They are an A+ in my book.

  • The hostel is in a brilliant area, right near gion, and between metro stations, so close for travel. Also near a number of nightclubs. Lots of maps and food recommendations given in the lobby, which helped a lot to find cheap food. Private room was a little small for two large suitcases, but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The living room and kitchen area is also a plus if you are wanting to meet other travelers, the living room is very comfortable.

  • Great staff - very friendly and helpful! Good vibe of hostel too. Only complaint was that the hostel smelled like feet/BO which made it unpleasant being in the rooms - i even had a private room
