Great location, on a very atmospheric street in Gion. The dorm beds all seem quite crammed in, however there is room to store your luggage and the beds themselves are very large, with space to keep things with you and curtains for privacy. The hostel is clean and was quiet when I was there even though it was full. Good kitchen facilities too. One issue is that most of the staff don't really speak English, however they are still very friendly and helpful.
Sometimes the receptionist was an old lady. She was kind and patient though she couldnt speak English. The location is perfect as you could just walk to a lot of sightseeings. It takes only about 10 mins to get there by bus from Kyoto Station. The room maybe small but the bed is really comfortable. Had got a good time in Kyoto with the Guest House Kinta. Will live here again if coming to Kyoto next time.
Nice and clean. Only common area shuts at 10, and directions to the hostel on hostelworld booking confirmation are terrible i got totally lost so look it up in advance.

I was staying in the bed in mixed dorm next to the window and it got very cold at night. It also seemed strange you were not using sheets for pillow and mattress cover but some kind of padding instead and although it seemed clean I think most people would prefer sheets.

A bit Japanese style hostel, quite clean and comfortable, only space is not very big, the community around is special, interesting and quiet.
When we stay first night, had other guest check in after PM 11:00-12:00;and they are very talkative on public PC area till midnight 1:30,it's let me very angry because I can't sleep. finally, I go to remind them "now are midnight, would you please ....." Second night, the other guys 3 person back on morning 06:00,and I think there drink so much, and talk very much , let all roommate can't sleep well. I think house owner Must remind all be a guests, I stay 2nights ,meet bad guests 2 times! We
located in a nice precint, not so far from the subway. You get to see maiko walk pass from time to time.
The staff doesn't really speak any English, but they are very friendly. Awesome big bunk beds!!! Nice and very japanese style with sliding doors and such. Very convinient when going for all the temples in east Kyoto.
