The hostel inn was pretty decent. It was a last minute booking and we got a place to stay the day before during the typhoon season. The location was a bit hard to find we had to ask some locals for the directions during the day but overall the hostel was great for one night, The subway station was not very far and we could leg it to Kyoto Station in about 10 minutes so overall it was not a bad location. Only thing that could be improved is just a bigger sign on the front.
5 of my friends took the 10 person mixed dorm, free wifi was given at the waiting area at the check in counter. There was only one toilet and one shower room to be shared by 10 person, to me it was not a problem considering the amount we are paying. Generally it was clean , bed furniture was new and comfortable. Location wise it is about 10 minutes walk down south from Kyoto main Train Station, reasonably near.
The drying was not functioning well. Used it 3 times for a total of 1.5Hrs and yet my clothes were not dry. Many a times there were no staff in the hostel.
