What a great hostel this is. The staff is so wonderful and very informative. They have maps of all of the different sites and wonderful nearby restaurants. They also sell day bus passes at the desk for $5! The six person room is great. The beds are comfortable and are private with the curtains. And the room had an awesome outdoor patio! My only complaint was that someone stole my bottle of sake out of the communal fridge. But that is out of the hostel's control. Great hostel experience!

The cab driver was a little confused by the (English-language) directions webpage; mentioning the cross streets would have helped.

We stayed in a double room: the problem was the smell of the room. It smells of humidity and we have to keep open the window all the day. Maybe it was the filter of the air conditioning, but it was no good. But the hostel stays in a good position to go in the center of the city.

It was nice and fairly spacious. It was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Also the location is pretty convenient and close to buses. Be sure to talk to the staff as they can provide you with a lot of help if you need any advice on how to get to where you are going.

There is only one power outlet for bunk bed and it is embedded on the wall lamp which is very inconvenient for charging multiple electronic devices.

Hostel was amazing. We do wish the bar wasn't separate as the atmosphere felt more like a hotel not a hostel but Staff were helpful. :)

Lovely place and really nice quiet area.30minutes by walk from Kyoto 's station, don't hesitate to just wander you'll find loads of lice places. Kuddos to the yakinikku 's place (when you walk down to the station from the hostel,on the second right alley I think? ) and to the restaurant on the way to Kyoto s station which is decorated with sunflowers (great pork ramen ). All in all, good location,nice staff,nice hostel!hence why I'm booking at their Tokyo 's location.

In all honesty, it's Japan! I expected the best, and that's exactly what I got.For an incredibly expensive country, this hostel is well priced, well located, clean, etc....etc....etc...But for me it's strength was the atmosphere, which was mainly down to the buildings layout.The common area was truly awesome; a big space with a very large central table, pc's, a kitchen and a huge tv, it was perfect to meet up and chat with an array of different characters from all over the world.Hey, It's Japan!
