Stayed here one night and can't really complain too much. I arrived early and wanted to leave my luggage in the luggage room, but it turns out there isn't one, just the front room. Only three showers for the whole hostel is a bit of an issue.


Best staff !!

3 showers for the whole hostel, one toilet on each of the floors. The front door always seemed to be ajar, and our dorm room's door didn't lock automatically, and even swung open sometimes. Only a few minutes walk from the beginning of Gion, though...


A very nice hostel with a great and very helpfull staff! Located very close to Gion where all the geisha work. It's also close to a lot of temples and shrines. I would definitly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Kyoto!

Suitable for backpackers.


Very conveniently located! Friendly and helpful staff and a clean place to stay! Warm and inviting common room with a kitchen to prepare your own food was a great addition. Would definitely stay again!
