Overall, clean, nice rooms. What I absolutely didn't like was the 11 pm curfew (they lock the doors!) and how the showers closed at 10:30 pm. This place is appropriate for people who want a quiet place to retire early, close to the Kyoto Station. I ended up staying here for 2 days out of the five that I was in Kyoto and moving to a different hostel afterwards.

Good ballance between price and quality and convenient location near the train station. The atmosphere is a bit decadent latest 70s and doesn't have the charm of other Ryokans. We will define the place as correct.
