Nice quite place to stay in Kyoto with a traditional feel. Bad point is the lack of any security lockers. You're bags are accessible to everyone in the guesthouse.

This is a cosy little guesthouse with a wonderful atmosphere! What the owner lack in English skills he compensates in kindness and spirit. It's a lovely place to stay at!

Cannot reccommend this place enough for a place to stay in Kyoto! Perfect location just off the Gion disctict which has an amazing atmosphere especially at night time. The hostel itself is so well managed and looked after, very clean, and feels so traditional. We stayed in the mixed dorm room. The staff are so amazingly friendly, kind and helpful!

The location is perfectly amazing; you can reach the metro/bus in 2mins, and 2-min walk to Hanamikoji Dori and Gion area, and 5-min Yasaka Jinja....so basically you can explore the Higashiyama area just by walk. Room is clean and service is good. Staff are Korean, very nice, honestly a bit shy though. Anyway, a good choice for your stay in Kyoto.

I wish there was an option to give more than 10. This was easily my favourite place I stayed at in Japan. The place has a very homely feel to it and the staff are very very friendly. The location is perfect if you want to see geisha, is close to a JR Station and close to bus stops. Only complaint I have is that the wooden floors creak very loudly.

Pros: Very near to Kawaramachi, where there are a lot of places to dine. Also near to the river. Common area is pretty large. The house seems to be converted into a hostel from an old japanese style building, good if you like the style. Cons: As the building is an old japanese style building, the floors will easy sound when you walk by. In males dorm, the power sockets were not so enough. and some beds have their sockets far from thier bed. Also the men's toilets are on 1/F but you sleep on 2/F
