  • This is a great hostel in a great location. The common room is a huge kitchen and lounge room. The rooms are a little cramped but you get that in Japan. The elevator/lift is excellent, very fast. There's a FamilyMart close by and the main shopping streets are close too. The staff are very helpful. Would definitely stay here again

  • Beware when putting your umberella in the communal umberella stand. Mine got taken by mistake! Otherewise, the hostel was very clean and the kitchen/common room area were very nice too.

  • Only stayed here for 2 nights, wish it was longer! Fantastic location and the staff are great. Make sure you pay a visit to the bar in the other hostel run by this company, had a great time with travelers and staff on their night off. Take full advantage of any activities run by the hostel, the origami girls were lovely and I met some interesting people.

  • This is my second time in Kyoto. The location is great and the price is reasonable. Will probably stay here for my next trip in Kyoto.

  • You can't beat the location of this hostel! Facilities are great. I really liked the layout of the lounge/kitchen area, very large. Staff is great. We stayed in a private two person bunk. So many good restaurants close by. The only bad thing was it was younger people on their cell phones instead of talking in the lounge area and someone ate my cheese naan bread leftovers! But seriously this was a great hostel!

  • 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.
