Pros: 10mins walk to Kyoto Station, although you might want to consider taking a taxi with heavy luggage. Staff are super helpful and funny. Went with a friend and lucky us we got to share with 2 very nice people. Cons: only 2 showers and a tiny kitchen for the whole hostel. I am an early riser so I manage to beat the morning rush to the toilet :) Verdict: Would consider this place solely on the location.


nice hostel


Overall average


It is a good choice for backpackers or travellers who tend to spend less budget on their hostels. The staff is nice and helpful.

it's an old building and common space have been stacked in the few space available but 2 showers and an inox sink in a corridor is not enough to feel comfy. some pubes felt out of the blanket i had on my bed...that cannot leave a good feeling...anyway the location is quite an easy access to the train station which is a major advantage to visit the city, it stays the cheapest we can find in kyoto so you got what you pay for!
