Got troubles talking to staff in English except the female receptionist. The position of the air-con is weird, with thick duvet provided in summer... Others are so-so, the share space is not that backpackers atmosphere but the living is really valuable and private enough...

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.

This hostel is very close to the Kyoto station so it's easily to go sightseeing. They have a discounted bus pass so definitely get that if you're going sightseeing since this city is heavily reliant on the bus system. Facilities are great but the dryer doesn't dry well on the first time around. You have to put your clothes through twice. The staff is great and the rooms are nice and spacious. There's no elevator but it's not a terrible climb up the stairs. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hostel, one staff member I found was a little more helpful than another but overall everyone was nice. Easy laundry facilities and good kitchen, I liked the location near the station because there was an easy bus link to Gion and also I don't mind a bit of a walk.

I love having curtains on the bed and lockers, just what is provided here. It's not far from the train station either:)

The staff were very friendly and I particularly enjoyed the noodle catching party on the first night of my stay! The hostel was very conveniently located just under 10 minutes walk away from Kyoto's main train station and is also under 5 minutes away from one of the subway stops. My dorm was very spacious and comfortable and lockers were provided for valuables. I would definitely recommend this hostel and plan to stay there again if I go back to Kyoto!

A fantastically run hostel with equally helpful staff! Clean, comfortable, and an excellent location. The other travellers there at the time were friendly making for a lovely atmosphere. The only reason I didn't rate Security as excellent is that not everyone in my dorm locked the door. Just a friendly reminder for anyone who shares a room - please always lock the door even if you're out only for a few minutes. While Japan is a very safe country, not all are so good! Highly recommended hostel!

Amazing location, just down the street from the train station. But most amazing is the team that works there. We got stranded there for a day and a half because of heavy rain and they helped to call our next hostel to cancel the reservations without penalty, and also made curry rice dinner knowing that all the restaurants and even convenience stores in the area had closed because of the storm. Highly recommend!
