The location was really amazing in beautiful Gion where you can see geishas walking around all over! The staff was really nice and helpful. They even offered to let me shower and hang out after I checked out which I thought was really cool of them. There weren't big lockers for backpacks but there were small ones for valuables and the curtains between the bunks actually gave a great sense of privacy. Great place.

Clean, good localization ( in the eastern area, kyomizudera and yasaka temple are near), a pretty good place for u to stay in tokyo. The space that you have for luggages and bags is by the side of the bed. For the night, it stays just 20 min(by walk) from the biggest market area. If u rent a bicycle, u can go from the hostel to kinkakuji in 1h and 20 min. It is a wonderful city to know by bicycle.

While we enjoyed staying here, we picked up on a few issues. Firstly, the hostel is not in a separate building (it shares floors with other businesses and is accessible from the street), and we were concerned that other guests were not locking the door. Secondly, the hostel advertised check in from 3pm, and yet was checking in guests before 9.30am. This created some uncomfortable situations getting dressed in the morning, and raised questions about whether bedding had been washed/changed.

Thank you for your comment. Also thank you for your advise. Well, our guesthouse is in the buliding. so we always say to the guests "please lock the door when you go out". Also our check in time is from 7:00am. If the beds are available, they can use it. Of course we change the shirt everday. We hope you enjoyed in Kyoto.

Perfect! Better than what I expected! Great hostel atmosphere, very clean and comfortable, easy to make friends. The staff were very helpful and spoke some english. There are free small lockers for your valuables if you feel unsafe and you can also store larger items (like laptops) behind the counter which I did. good location near the temples (30 mins from kyoto sta.) If you don't have the money for hotels I highly suggest this hostel, it was great value for money and a great experience!

Had a good stay. Beds are comfortable, good location, free breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, everything clean, and great value for money. The common area lacks a bit in atmosphere.

Very welcoming staff. Often dorm doors left unlocked but this relates more to who else was in the room and nothing really the hostel could do about it! Reasonably secure building anyway so not really an issue, only thing I could think of to raise. Had a great time!

I can't thank the hostel staff enough. They were very helpful. Apart from getting settled quickly and comfortably, they provided very helpful guidance on planning my trip for days in Kyoto. Very well maintained and great value for money

Staff is adorable, great location especially if it is your first stay in Kyoto. It`s great to stay for up to a week. For a longer stays it depends very much on a time of the year and the people in the room. Female dorm can accommodate 10 so when full your sleep hours may dramatically decrease + there are always people arriving late, leaving very early, keeping light on the whole night. + huge suitcases blocking your way all the time as there is no space to put them and queuing for shower...

The hostel is located on the 3rd and 5th floor of a 5 stories building. Didn't see it coming. It is also quite far from the main street and it was quite hard to find. In terms of cleanliness, it's OK, but it could use some improvements. The staff are helpful, but maybe not to the Japanese standard that I usually find in other cities. But maybe because the hotel is quite well known, it has attracted people not used to dormitory life. Come on people - turning on hair dryer at 11 PM is a big NO!

Thank you for your comment. Also thank you for giving us your opinion. We send the email how to come to our hostel 1week before arrival. so guests normally arrive easily. Also we are very small hostel and have only dormitory. so there is something troble, we will sort it out! If you have a chance to stay here, please tell us directly.

Very nice hostel. Dorms are cozy, good privacy in the bunk beds. Showers are good and the common area is nice. Best of all was the staff, super helpful!

This was a good hostel in a great location of Kyoto. My only comments are that there's only very small lockers... so the staff had to hold onto my laptop when I went out (which I highly appreciate but would of liked the option of putting it into a locker). Also the towels they hire out are super low quality and mostly just move water around your body as opposed to absorb it...the towels really did nothing at all and they should invest in some better ones please!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment and your advice. We have small hostel, we don't have a space to keep big stuff. Also about the towel, we will think about that. We hope you enjoyed in Kyoto!

It was maybe the best hostal for Kyoto, and one of the best ones i've ever been. It was clean, with a nice atmosphere and great personal. They help you with everything you need. It is situated in Gion, which means a great area of Kyoto, near also to Pontocho, if you want to go out. Furthermore, the price was really good, and they have a common area with computers and entertainment. I have a nice experience there.

Rooms were overcrowded. common room was also full and people sat in the stairwell or had to hang out in dorm which was stuffy. A pity as otherwise a good hostel.

Owner Comment (Hide)
