staffs are the most friendly, they're welcome to answer all the questions with service-mind. however the facilities are quite old when compare to J-Hoppers Osaka but i have a very good experience while staying here.

Good hostel to stay in. The atmosphere was a bit dead in the common, but was still able to meet people. The hostel was very clean and tidy. The kitchen facilities were great. I really liked having a curtain around the bed, created a sense of privacy. It was well located considering its kyoto and you will have to travel a lot to see all the sights. Would stay here again.

The 8 ppl room is a bit over-crowded it is okay for all other areas

Thank you for your comment. Recently we have more travelers with huge suitcases than backpackers...Maybe that's why... Hope you enjoyed in Kyoto!!!

Very cozy, clean and comfortable hostel. Each bed has a curtain so it provides privacy and keep unneeded light out. Very comfortable beds. It is a pretty small hostel so common area could be pretty sparsely populated

Nice hostel. Near some sights but away from main night life areas. Also I found the communal area on middle floor lacked atmosphere. Everything else was what you would expect from a very nice hostel!

I stayed for 2 nights (March 19-20, 2015) This hostel location was very strategic, easy to find near the AVANTI dept store. close enough to the osaka station for bus and train. if in any case you had plan for moving to another city by overnight bus (just like me) and they're staff are really friendly. I love it!

The day we arrive is heavily rain, we walk in the rain for 30 mins and got splashed by speeding bus on the street, total nightmare! When arrived, then we know actually there is a subway station that connecting the Kyoto St and Kujo St, the hostel location. Wish they added the information beforehand just so ppl can choose either they want to walk 15-20mins (mine takes longer as it raining heavily) or use the subway if faced problm like us. For the staying exp, its excellent :) really reccomended.

I've been traveling around for a while now and this is the best hostel I've stayed in. Great beds, good staff, nice facilities - everything that you need. Lots of information to help you plan your trip. You can rent bikes through the hostel as well. It's 8-10 minutes from Kyoto station. Not really on a subway line, but it's right on the bus route and getting around on Kyoto buses is a breeze - easier than back home even. Very highly recommended hostel.

clean, friendly place with great staff, though the walking up and down lots of flights of stairs got a bit tiring! great location and very helpful staff. Shower facilities could be upgraded though.

Fantastic experience. The staff were the best by far out of the three hostels I have stayed in. So helpful in every way possible. I would absolutely come back again and recommend this place to my friends.

Not so central, a bit rundown, but still ok.

Owner Comment (Hide)
There are 2 "downtown" in the Kyoto city. The big one is Shijo area. Another one is Kyoto Station area. We are 7-8 min walk from the Kyoto station.
