This place is ADORABLE. The staff are also so cute and nice and helpful. I really loved this place. It is very small though. I was constantly bumping into things in the room.

It's quite easy to reach from the station by bus. The area is quiet - there isn't much choice for close by restaurants. This is a traditional Japanese stay if you are looking for that experience. I could only manage 1 night here as the female dorm was tiny so I couldn't fit my bag in the room very well. I didn't find the beds very comfortable. But the place is clean and there is a place you can experience Buddhist morning chanting close by.

This was a beautiful and traditional Japanese style guesthouse. It was so calm and the staff were extremely helpful! There is also a kitchen which is helpful and free drinks! Although my only problem is I stayed in a female dorm, and it was very small with 3 bunk beds fit in. Only 3 showers between 3 buildings so sometimes had to wait for the showers.And also because of how old the house is everything is extremely loud so it's difficult to sleep, but that's the price you pay for such beauty :)

The staff here were so nice, incredibly polite and helpful, with good English. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer! Facilities clean, there could be more showers but that wasn't a huge problem. Fairly good location too.

Overall the Hostel was really nice and almost more like a hotel. The staff was extremely kind and always tried to help in any possible way.

Overall, we enjoyed the hostel very much. The staff was great, we loved the Japanese aesthetic and the majority of the building. It was close to Kyoto station too- only about a 10-15 minute walk. The only down side was the size of the female dorm. There was barely room to move in between the bunk beds- we literally had to walk sideways in between them. Everything else was awesome, except for that.
