Owned by a super cute and sweet couple! The hostel is very quiet, very much with a feeling like a home. In a great location, literally 5min walk away from Kiyomizu-dera and the bus stop for all your Kyoto traveling needs. There's a curfew of 11pm for coming back into the hostel if you're out though, as well as for the shower. Very clean and pretty, and would stay there again if I want to splurge a bit on living costs. If you want breakfast in the morning, ask the owners the night before!

the guest house is rather difficult to find


Security is poor, but it's Japan and not a youth hostel, so you don't have to worry too much. The owners are very friendly and considerate. The place feels like someone's home, not a hotel. It's very comfortable.
