L'auberge est située au Nord de Kyoto, bien desservie par les bus. Cependant la maison est peu chauffée, les dortoirs sont exigus et les lits dur. Les murs sont tellement fin que nous entendions absolument tout. Salle de bain avec le stricte nécessaire. Personnel inexistant.

The place is a real traditional japanese house, so you nave to be prepared to a very spartan room. If you want to reach the toilets you have to go outside the building so it's quite a problem in winter when it's cold. Same story fo the shower. We found some insects in the toilet and shower. The hostel is difficult to find, but it's near to metro station. You can easily reach the Golden Pavillion by walking for 40 minutes Good to stay there for fewfew days to taste real japanese style but no

Not for everyone. Not terrible but not great either.

El hostel esta bien, no es tan lejos de la ciudad y es un calido lugar para quedarse.

Loved this small hostel, rooms and equipment like from Miyazaki's cartoons, small kitchen and dining room was simply 'cute', and I normally don't use this word. Warning for all tall travellers as myself... I hit my head frequently during my stay, but still liked the place. Little bit far from all major attractions and subway but if you are reasonably fit you can get everywhere on bike for 500 yen/day, and cycling in Osaka is one of the most amazing experiences I had in Japan.

La sistematione è un po' rustica ma assolutamente pulita e fornita di tutti i servizi. E' tutto molto compatto in stile vecchia abitazione giapponese, molto intimo. Le opportunità per conoscere persone provenienti da ogni parte del mondo non mancano e il gestore è molto disponibile. L'unica pecca sono stati i bagni..forse troppo rustici!

Noisy, unclean, insect ridden, many small corridors and low beams. Unclean floors but no shoes. Sections of building lack roofing

The good side is that its in an old traditional japanese style house. The downsides are: only one shared bathroom, anyone can enter the hostel whenever they want as the staff is absent most of the time, beside they are pretty much unfriendly, always seemed to be bothered... And the hostel is quite far from the center

there are no locks anywhere except the toilet. there is only one shower, which has no lock. bedrooms also have no locks, there are curtains around the bunk beds, but they're see through. there's no privacy at all.

Best place to stay of you're looking for an authentic japanese house to stay in. A fantastic rabbit warren of beautiful traditional japanese rooms. Be sure to bring your own towels for the shower though- the owner has none for hire!
