Good stay, perfect location, near Gion and bus station! Only problem, we couldn't sleep because one guy in the room snored all night long. Not the hostel problem though, but if you can pay a little more for a private room go for it! It's worth it. Everything else excellent!

This hostel was very very good, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the beds are really comfortable. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm, and there's enough space for you and all your things. The bathrooms were always clean and the showers are nice with a lot of space in them too. The best part was all the information they offer you about the area and how central it is to many attractions and good city vibes. They give you a small gift when you leave which was lovely. Definitely will come again

The location is great and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room/bed was really comfortable, and there were HUGE safety boxes in my room. There was shampoo and body wash in the showers which was great. This hostel has a lot of traffic, so the atmosphere among the guests was not super friendly, and the kitchen/living room area can get a little crowded. The place has a no shoes in rooms policy, but there weren't enough slippers to wear instead - which was a little annoying.

A nice place to stay. But if the hostel can offer some salt and pepper in the kitchen for cooking, I will appreciate much more . In the room every thing put on the floor,hope you can set a cabinet.

Met some great people here and the hostel is well located in kyoto and so easy to get around the city with the information the guest house provides.

A nice place but not worth the hype we thought. Conveniently located, the facilities in the hostel were fairly good though they never seemed to have enough Uwabakis and we had walk around barefoot. The folks at the reception were surprisingly formal for a backpackers and didn't have much to offer in terms of local advice. The common room was pretty cool and had plenty of people who were staying there for an extended period. Conversations with them did make our stay more interesting.

Washroom facilities a bit far from our rooms and not enough in view of the number of rooms.

Definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Location is very convenient, staff was very helpful, and the lounge/kitchen area is really really great! For that price, it is impossible to beat.
