Location is OK for such a big city, the format of the hostel (few apartments inside a building, familiar to those who travelled in provincial Chinese cities) is a little odd but works; common room is small, but staff do everything they can to be helpful
Excellent place to stay if you want.to experience the real older part of Japan. You can see Geisha and its an excellent place to walk around amidst the fact that.there.are lots of drinking areas.

Met such wonderful people at this hostel!! Staying here is super advisable. We sort of turned the 5th floor lounge into a party room. though we tried to clean up after ourselves, and im sure it wasn't perfect, the staff were very nice to us about all of it! Very close to the old district, super accesible to the rest of the city by walking, bus, or train. And for the amount of people in the hostel, everything was always immaculately clean! Great value for money. Definitely stay here!
The location is great and the staff is helpful.i wish i stayed there the previous day asas well instead of some other expensive place that i found in a hurry
Narrow space both in the dorms and at the lounge area/kitchen. everything was stuffed. Lounge area/kitchen closes at 1 am, which is a downside. Average cleanliness. The main entrance is always open. Don't expect to be comfortable here.
good location on the gion area wich is a very traditional part of kyoto.close to many temples,shrines and many other places of interest. staff was helpfull and the dorms (beaside being small for so many beds) was very clean. recomendable.
Very helpful staff, clean and comfortable room. Location is close to major attractions like Yasaka Shrine & Kiyomizu-Dera. It is reasonable priced. I will definitely stay in this hostel again when I visit Kyoto in the future!!!
Great location, I had a good week, met some nice people, a good security locker for small valuables forget a laptop ect (it was a tight fit). Comfortable bed's - close quarters - good value and fun for what you pay. I'd recommend the hostel it's small but it works.
Location is good, just 10 minutes walk from the Gion District. Staff were very nice and friendly, and the facilities provided are very thoughtful. Definitely recommend this.
Nice location (geisha district), easy to find (close to bus stop), walking distance to a few attractions. Good use of the space of the room. Cheap and cold beer for selling. No problems with the hostel. Would stay again.
I had a good experience at the hostel (good location, helpful, very clean, comfortable bed) but they need to send out better directions on how to get there (for example, in what direction to take the 206 bus)
my stay at a yado was amazing! i love the staff!;D they are very friendly, helpful and speak very good english. its right in gion also, so you can reach major visiting points in kyoto by foot. but a busstop is also close;) the hostel provides everything you need and get even a little free brekkie. thank you and all the best=)
The hostel is in a convenient place.The staff is always helpful and cheerful.
Great location and affordable. Although the building is a bit older, all necessary facilities there, staff is very helpful on getting you started in Kyoto
I have nothin to complain about. The best hostel that i had on my japan trip!
Very comfy & clean, all staff are very helpful!
A quality hostel. I was disappointed with the atmosphere, but I only stayed one night so there's a good chance I just caught the place on an off night. Beyond that, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and you can tell they've made an effort to create an environment that is inviting and conducive to socializing. Just didn't come together the night when I was there. One huge plus is they have all beds curtained off, so it's a great place to get some privacy while still meeting others.
Great and helpful staff. Apart from the reception desk, which is quite old, the bedrooms look really nice and clean.
Nice staff, clean hostel, great atmosphere.
This was a great hostel. Best one I stayed at in my recent trip to Japan. They cleaned the bathrooms twice daily. The bed sheets were soft and fluffy. They also had multiple outlets for charging electronics. The staff was nice, helpful, and friendly.
