Not too bad if all you are looking for is a bed, however don't expect any kind of hostel vibe as there are no common room and no place to chill beside your room. There is a bar downstairs but the whole 3 days we stayed there we only saw one customer. The location is perfect, close to everything. Staff is ok, not very friendly but they do their job.

Decent hostel in a great location. Not much in terms of atmosphere. Decent rooms, but lockers are small and they lack curtains to provide some privacy.

The location is excellent. Right in Gion. Many attractions are within walking distance. There is also a local train station right in-front of hostel to Osaka. Can easily go to Osaka on a whim. So no reason to limit the trip to just Kyoto. On to the basics. The facilities are clean. Room with 8 beds was spacious enough. Common area is small and can fit 4 people at most. Not the most social hostel but that's fine with me. WIFI is good. No elevators. So avoid heavy luggage.

Overall the rooms are basic but clean. However they make you sign a waiver upon check in with some ridiculous rules (200% repayment of damages etc)...not very welcoming. The main focus of this place is their sake bar below, not the hostel guests, as they are unavailable to you at most times..You are also not allowed to check in after 10 pm and will charge you for checking in between 9-10 or something ridiculous like that. Great location, very high stairs, staff doesn't speak english.
