The hostel was very clean and quiet. However, the personal could barely speak English and they couldn't recommend any places to go out -specially bars and cultural stuff. credit cards not accepted. Located far from the 'center' of kyoto (where things happen). It was walking distance to the train station though
Great place, great staff, perfect location (conveniently close to public transport yet located in a residential area so it's quiet and peaceful) and everything is so neat and tidy! Thank you so much for all the help and tips that you gave us during our stay. We will tell our friends about this great value for money place!
Probably the cleanest hostel I have ever been to. Free coffee and tea anytime you want to was very appreciated.
Be aware of getting lost. The directions provided on the website point out common landmarks - there's many of the gas stations used in the directions. Other than that, the staff manage their guest house pretty well. I felt comfortable and safe staying here.. The location is in the quiet part, so it was nice to experience both sides of the city.
Really nice hosts. Rooms are pretty standard, though they have nice A/C units. Had to wait a while for a shower, and the common room is somewhat small. All in all pretty great, though.
What Went Well: Decent kitchen, decent beds, very clean, nice roof area, washing machine, locks on doors, lockers available, bags left after checkout, very helpful owners (very good English), excellent location Even Better If: It would've been nice if we were allowed to leave the aircon on while out, as it took a long while for the effects of it to be felt! Would recommend.

This hostel is fantastic. The place is extremely clean and great facilities, quiet and about 10 min walk to Kyoto central station. The owner is so keen that he was literally scrubbing the floors by hand in the afternoon. Also very helpful by providing local map to catch transit. Can't do better than this for value in Kyoto.
Fabulous location, nice staff, and clean building. Would stay again! My only real qualm is that there was no "common room" to hang out in besides just the kitchen area.
This is one of the nicest hostels I have stayed at in a while. It was pleasant, there wasn't much common space except for the kitchen. But that didn't stop me from meeting many different people! It was also very clean!!
The hostel was in a good spot, not too far from the station and the manager kindly emailed a map and some details. The staff spoke English and was very helpful. It was pretty clean and you can cheaply rent towels and bikes. There were many basic amenities available. I ended up staying an extra night because I enjoyed the city so much and was comfortable at this hostel.
i really enjoyed my stay at the hostel! staff is very nice and the hostel is very clean and quiet! its about 10-15min by foot to the kyoto JR station and from there u have buses and subway to all the sightseeing places...
Great place for a one nights stay. Not too far from Kyoto station. Staff was friendly, price was good. Nothing stood out, neither bad or good. Although in the middle of July, air conditioning did not circulate very well in the room. It was very hot. Other than that the place was fine!
Overall a good hostel. The staff is very friendlsy and helpful, will help you in anyway. They went above and beyond to make things easy. The lounge room is kind of narrow and not really easy to meet new people. But if you are just looking for a bed and a place to stay you should have no qualms about staying at this place.
Great place would stay here again, wish there was more like it around
One of the best Hostels i ever stayed! The owner is such an amazing person! The hostel is small bad brand new, you feel more like in a Japanese family house. As well you get a free drink every night at the bar! Very recommend place to stay in Hiroshima!
Really nice hostel. Only stayed here for one night but I wish we'd stayed longer. The whole place is very clean and well kept. It's only a 10 minute walk from the train station, very easy to find. The staff have good english and are very nice, they helped us plan our day around kyoto. they had maps to give us and printed out anything else we needed for directions
Easy to get to on foot from train station and very clean place. They had nice bikes to borrow and the staff were friendly. The kitchen facilities were very cramped and so I didn't really use them. There are better places to stay in Kyoto!
This guesthouse felt like a home! It was a lovely traditional Japanese experience and my leadership group and myself really enjoyed our stay. We also loved how conveniently located it is - around the corner from convenient stores and a bike renting shop! Very cute!
Great place that was pretty easily accessible. About a 10~15 min walk away from the Namba lines. Loads of food places that were 5 min or so from the hostel. The hostel itself was clean and hospitable. Folks with huge luggages might wanna consider if they're willing to lug up 2 flights of stairs to get to your dorm. Toilets and bathrooms were clean and the futons were extremely comfortable. Expect some noises from nearby eateries at night though. Overall, a pleasant stay!
