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.

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.

The staff were all a bit cold and not very knowledgeable when asking quesions about the local transport and area. At one point the lady from downstairs walked into the dorm without knocking, looked in the toilet and then left without a word. Signs with rules all a bit aggressive. The dorms were very basic and the kitchen was tiny with only space for 3 people. The place wasn't very clean. I wouldn't want to stay here again.

The location is perfect, underground station just in front of it, next to the river and the main street Shijo dori. The staff is very helpful, we needed to recieve a package from France and that was a struggle but they helped us a lot. The room are very simple but they have everything you need. I would definitly go back there.

Didn't like the atmosphere at all. With all that threatening signs around, it's like that they take for granted that their guest are uneducated and vandals. The "common room" is a teeny-tiny kitchen facing a wall and very sad looking. Good thing is a bed in mixed dormitory is cheap, but I wouln't spend more than one night there.

Nice place, has everything you need and the location is good! Would recommend if you want to explore the Gion area in Kyoto. The entrance is a long staircase up though, so fair warning if you have a luggage, you're going to have to carry it up.

They didn't really have a kitchen, but a small room with a fridge and kettle. Not really any privacy since the bed didn't have any curtains, and no individual lamps by the beds.
