A strange place with no access from 11.00 to 16.00; `walk slowly` signs in the corridors; no noise after 21.00. Perfect for light sleepers like me.


Awesome location, awesome staff. A perfect place to stay if you're a backpacker just looking for somewhere to crash at night.

Filthy. Do they change the futon covers at all?

Great location which is 5 minute walk from Kyoto Station. Very nice and helpful staff who were very easy about me having to shorten my stay. Bumped me to a better room too.

Hostel is 5 mins away from JR station with good shower. Not really a good place to meet people but recommended for relaxing away from noises.
