The facilities were really clean and new. Also the bed was comfortable and ecause of the curtains you had some privacy in your bed. If the hostel is fully booked, I don't know if one toilet is enough. What you get for your money is relatively good, but I'd like to have a place to lock my belongings, not only a really small safe, where you can fit maybe some money and your phone. Also the community room is small and stuffed. There is only a microwave and a waterboiler as kitchen items.

Hostel is located on a ten minute walk from downtown Kyoto. The beds are very comfortable and can be sealed with a curtain so provide a good degree of privacy. Although there are only two showers to be shared with all guests, the facilities are excellent and very clean. Definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to visit Kyoto.
The facilities are bare minimum but the interior design is really nice.
Hostel is in a nice area. Very clean and modern. Beds are very comfy and plenty of sinks and mirrors. I just didn't like that mixed dorm was separated from women dorm just with a paper thin wall that does not reach the ceiling. So it felt like there are 14 of us sleeping in one room. One of the staff brought new people at midnight and was very loud, left the light on as well. The staff never interacted with us and there is common area with 2 chairs - tiny! Internet works well only there.
Best Location in Kyoto for checking out the old town! 1) Location. It was in the old town which was very nice as it was only a few blocks away from some of the temples in Kyoto and you can see many locals wearing traditional japanese clothes on the streets. And it was close to a metro! 2) Facilities. The facilities were just fine with extremely large beds that felt like your own cove. The beds are up a narrow stairwell. Recommend if you like a chill relaxed hostel. No big common area.
The lady's that manage the front desk do not speak English, they know a few words. They also could not find our reservation until late in the evening, luckily they were still able to give us a room when we arrived. It was also extremely hard to find. Overall, we really enjoyed the place and would definitely stay there again. The beds were good and it was fairly clean.
Great local restaurant as a part of hostel. Local food prepared by people which work in hostel. Very very tasty.
