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!

This was a great hostel. Only issue was the drying machine which did not completely dry clothes after a full cycle. However, the friendly staff, very clean rooms and bathroom facilities made our stay very comfortable.

Facilities are very good! Rooms are dark, no light if you close courtains! That's amazing if you like to rest in that way, beds are very comfortables ! Good place, good price, excellent location.

Very nice hostel, well located and well equipped. Staff tries their best to keep everyone in a good mood. Loads of information about sightseeing, maps of the area, very helpful. I don't like big hostels and I think it's hard to create a nice atmosphere and provide enough safety, but they're doing everything they can to make your stay perfect.

I really like how this hotel operated since we can interact with other backpackers from around the world. The cleanliness. I am quite surprised looking at the room at first because even though its small, everything seems nice and fits all together!

Love the location! It has so many places to explore within walking distance. Common area/kitchen on the top floor can be a huge mingling soup pot at night when the patrons are hanging out there at night. Love the spacious rooftop for hanging clothes too.
