An unusual hostel, but it works! It's a bit of a quirky place, with retro pictures and furniture, but the staff are friendly and we enjoyed our one night stay.

Pan and Circus has an amazing atmosphere, friendly, fun, welcoming, quirky, cheap. The interior decorating is the most remarkable part. Everything is made from recycled parts and vintage. At times it feels like things are going to fall apart, doorways are crooked, the main door needs a special procedure to use, the winter insulation on the windows is bubble warp. BUT IT WORKS. Where it matters its clean and functional. This is a fantastic hostel for the solo traveller, I love it.


this is not a bad hostel.. basic, with good location and interesting decoration. And you may also appreciate its stylish side☺


점수를 조금 박하게 준 것 같긴 합니다 그러나 숙소 예약을 늦게 한 탓에 하루는 카오산 교토 씨어터에 묶고 하루는 팬엔서커스에 묶었는데 비교가 되는 바람에 평가를 이렇게 했습니다 우선 위치는 역에서 가깝지만 주변에 별다른 식당이나 볼거리가 없습니다. 보안은 외부 번호키를 사용하지만 조금 불안한 감이 있고요, 스테프는 친절하나 아침에 없습니다. 늦게 나온다 하더라구요. 분위기는 나쁘지 않습니다. 1층 바에서영어하는 바텐더와 이야기하며 즐겁게 보냈습니다. 이름이 다이라고 했었는데 성격 좋더라구요. 그렇게 깨끗해보이지는 않았는데 이는 워낙에 오래된 건물이라 그런듯 합니다. 다른 무엇보다도 거리가 조금 안타깝지만 지낼만은 했습니다.
