Although the hostel is only 10 minutes by walk from JR station, consider that most of restaurants, shops, temples and things to see are in the other direction (north of train station). The staff was truly amazing and rooms were very clean.

Its a very good hostel, I would definitely recommend it. Maybe the bike rental is a little bit expensive comparising whit other hostels around Japan, but all the rest is perfect.

Very clean hostel located that's about a ten minute walk from Kyoto Station. Staff is very helpful. A few restaurants nearby and a 7/11 a half-block away.

Bit of odor in the room. Its not a big deal once your nose get used to it but for senitive people..could be a problem. In conclusion, placing an aromatic shall perfect the room :)

Pros: Clean, comfortable bed Near Tokyo Sta. Good English ability Bikes to rent (I didn't, so I can't tell you much about it) Helpful Staff (They provided a good food recommendation, but it was a mall food court so not as much of a Japanese experience) Cons: Lockers too small (couldn't fit a backpack) Showers on only 2nd and 3rd floors (rooms go up to 5th floor) Not near sights to see All in all, it was a good place to stay.

No lift (elevator) made us carried our luggages up and down, and it was inconvenient to us. Near to Kyoto Station with 15 minutes walk.

Wonderful hostel in Kyoto not far from Kyoto station with 15 mins walk or 5 mins by bus. Very clean and fresh also helpful staffs. Extremely quiet in the mid night and very comfortable bed.

The hostel was beautifully decorated with photos of past guests visiting nearby locations, and the atmosphere was so friendly and homely. The staff were lovely, and there was a common area and kitchen stocked with games and sofas and tea where lots of people hung out in the evenings, and where some fun discussions between different guests would start. The rooms were lovely, clean and private, with curtains between beds. My only gripe is that the luggage room was not well secured during the day.

Great Hostel. Only a few blocks away from Kyoto station. Bicycle rental available on premise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bathroom was clean and bed was tidy. Overall it's a great value for a hostel!

Thank you very much for your kind review. We are glad to hear that. Thank you for staying with us and see you next time!:)

The hostel is located in the far much quieter section of Kyoto (south of Kyoto station) but a 10-minute walk to the Kyoto station (or alternatively a quick bus ride towards Shijo Kawaramachi) could bring you to the city center in no time. I like the friendly and helpful staff. I really wished I could stay longer in Kyoto. Both the sleeping rooms and bathrooms are clean.

They were great and were able to help me get an extra night stay which was originally booked out. Very helpful with information. Location was good, not so far of a walk from Kyoto Station. nice little kitchen and lounge area.

Good value for money but it's an old hostel don't expect anything nice and trendy if your used that sort of stuff, I'd imagine it would be a good place to stay at if ur travelling with a group of people, no stairs so you gotta walk up to the 5th floor of ur up there

We stayed in the female dormitory, 4th floor. I like that each bed space in the dorm is curtained, has a small cabinet, is provided with a lamp, have 2 pegs to hang clothes, and a socket. Our only disappointment was the instructions on how to get there. It was not mention in the website that you can take the bus from Kyoto Station to the hostel or how to go to the hostel if you arrive by JR instead of Shinkansen. The staff are great receptionist but do not seem to know much on commuting.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your comment. Hmm... Shinkansen and JR are the same. Both stop in the same Kyoto station. And no buses from Kyoto station since J-Hoppers is pretty close. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Kyoto!!!
