Great location, in the heart of Kyoto within walking distance to bars, shops, restaurants and all main sights. Rooms nice and spacious, large kitchen and common room area. Convenience stores close by. Handy guides and suggested itineraries for sightseeing. Organised trips and hostel activities. Wifi wasn't great, could only really access it downstairs in reception. Overall, good place to stay.

Amazing hostel in a great location. I stayed here a few years ago and didn't hesitate to come back. There is also a great common room that makes it really easy to meet people.

We stayed in a private room. It was very small but served out purpose well! Wifi from the room was very unstable, though.

Great hostel! Very friendly, good English ability, and nice facilities. It's very conveniently located for the Higashiyama Gion district and Kiyomizu Temple especially. ホステルは本当によかったです。綺麗な設備ですし、スタッフは親切でした。祇園東山と清水寺と近いですから、旅行のために便利な場所だと思っています。

I have a very enjoyable stay all the way. This is great accomodation and great hospitality with a great place which located at the center of kyoto shopping district. With a walking distance, you can reach all the shopping area such as teramachi, nishiki market, and even gion, everything are reachable by walking. The only less from the hostel is the kitchen area which not properly preserved as the towel used to dry the washed utensils are always damp and being left over the kitchen table.

There are curtains that come with the beds which I appreciated. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Seriously the best customer service I've received on my Asia trip. I really enjoyed my time and the food around the area since the hostel is so close to the Nishiki Market. There's free green tea at the hostel too and it's close to a bakery, grocery store, 7-11, ATM etc. Lockers are a good size to store a small backpack. Shampoo/soap is provided.

Staff is incredibly helpful. Free key to the locker in your room. Female dorms available, RIGHT next to Gion and near several stations and bus stops. NO BIKE PARKING.

This guesthouse is near the Subway station, which is a bit difficult to find coming from Kyoto Main Station. The rooms are very small but just for sleeping it's ok. The only thing that could be improved is the floor carpet which absorbs all kind of dust during time - apart from that, everything is perfect. The bathrooms are clean and very modern and comfortable to use even they are shared. The area is ver clean and has many easy-to-reach attractions like Gion area. We will surely return there.

stayed for 1 night in this hostel, felt happy for having a clean and not so narrow room, clean shower room, cozy &spacious lounge. when entering the hostel's door, there's tatami-style 'break area' in front of receptionist desk with computers connected to internet. the staffs welcoming nicely and very polite when asking me to show ID cards etc, and when explaining the terms and conditions. the luggage storage is also large and convenient.
