    I think what guests like most about our property is our very friendly, English-speaking staff. We just love chatting with our guests! In fact, we have a dinner party every week.
    Toji Temple is just 15 minutes' walk from our hostel and has the highest wooden pagoda in Japan. I personally recommend visiting the Fushimi Inari Shrine. It's an important Shinto shrine in Kyoto and has trails leading into the wooded forest of sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds. At the back of the shrine's main grounds is the entrance to the torii gate covered hiking trail, which starts with two dense, parallel rows of gates called Senbon Torii ("thousands of torii gates"). The torii gates along the entire trail are donations by individuals and companies.
    I'd say we're ideally suited for single travellers and couples aged 16 to 50.

    Very nice hostel, good value for money: friendly staff, cheap bicycle rental and some privacy with curtains that cover your bed (at least in the dorm rooms). Only downside is that the dorm rooms are on the 5th floor with no elevator, and the showers are on the 3rd floor.

    Love love love this hostel! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the hostel is in a great location. I also really appreciated the curtains on each bunk bed to help block out light if and the shelving for those on the top bunks so you don't have to climb up and down to access your stuff. Anyway, great hostel and I would definitely book again.
