Stayed here because nothing else was available in Kyoto (national holiday weekend). It's not actively bad, it's just not very good, especially when compared to other hostels we stayed in for a similar price. Most annoying aspect is that at 11pm a bloke comes round and turns the lights off and common room is no longer available for use. It's not as bad as some people make out but you can definitely find better places for your money if you book far enough in advance
It was an ok hostel for one night, but too small for such an amount of beds.

It's a pretty standard hostel really, it's pretty well-run though. Beds a tad uncomfortable but I still got plenty of sleep.
Horrible and probably worst experience. No one was at the reception when I arrived or no one would answer the phone so I basically wasn't able to stay.
