The location is convenient, close to the subway. Rooms averige but you can easily hear the noise in the corridor. Staff tried to help if we asked stuff but they didnt seem to have knowledge of many things/didnt bother to check properly. The rooms also dont have curtains so the light comes in already early.
ks house is almost like a hotel, stayed in one in hiroshima too. Its clean and everything so well organized. Staff is not the most friendly but helped when we needed something. Location in kyoto was okay, close to train station, but further away of other sights in gion.
very good location, walkable to gion etc. Staff very friendly and very helpful and they have good maps of the area. Towels you can rent or buy, they are not included. Good wifi. I would recommend this hostel!
small cozy hostel in nara. Wifi worked,u can rent bikes from the guesthouse. Almost like ryolan style. Liked it.
building is like a student dormitory, okay for a short stay. Sleeping on futon is nice. Rooms quite in bad condition. Wireless inet okay.
we liked this hostel a lot, its almost like a hotel.. We had a nice room, big bed, own nice bathroom, was clean, wifi worked, staff was helpful and for 300 yens you can use the laundry maschine and dryer. Liked this place, can recommend!
we stayed only one night here but liked it, location quite good and our foom was very big!
Dont go if wireless inet is a must cos it didnt reach to the 3rd floor. Staff helpful, rooms clean, beds not the most comfy ones. Old building, smells a bit but okay for few nights.
Value for money. Nice futons, clean room. No towels neither soap but you can rent/buy them. Location very good, close to temples,restaurants. Staff was okay, helpful but tried to speak Japanese to us...

1st: noise was main problem: from voices, steps, construction work and pipe noises. Security: great with many different levels until reaching your room. Location: good with lots of shops+restaurants close by and the metro station very close. Atmosphere: a bit weird since building was old, but its normal for Hong Kong hostels. Facilities: Great AC and WiFi. Room very small but clean and okay. *Remember to bring your own towels* Value for Money: Enough to say that we would go there again
Not enough toilet paper,no soap,no towels.Reception looked like laundry,had piles of dirty bedsheets.Said to have WiFi but it was not available!They didnt give us the key to our room,we always needed to ask them to open+close the door of the room.They didnt want to book a taxi for us to the airport.There are better hostels closer to this one with more or less the same price!!!
Breakfast was really good and the location of the hotel was good too, even though fpr the taxi drivers it was difficult to find.
The location is not as bad as people say but is far away from being top notch. Sometimes even the taxi drivers dont know where it is so if you can buy a map. The staff isnt overfriendly like we have experienced in other hostels but they get the job done (booking/reservations/orientation) and thats important. The english skills are not the best but neither are in more expensive hotels. Everything costs I am paying 1 yuan for 15 minutes of internet right now and in other hostels i got free
To start, this hostel is very basic. Staff was very helpful and speaks very good English. Location is good, many restaurants are close by and you can easily take the subway. Cleanliness isnt the best but they come to clean the room everyday. The staff spent a lot of time with us planning our trips around china which is a good thing. There is a small pub inside of the hostel where you can drink few beers. In the rooms no western wall sockets, clean sheets, crappy tv. I would stay again
pretty noisy, cos some clients were shouting in their rooms and having a party. Good thing would be to have the silence starting at 10pm.
Hostel is good for the young party people. The noise in the night bothers people who would like to sleep. The price is not worth for what the hostel offers. The breakfast is poor and the hostel rooms are not as good as you expect. Its possible to find a good HOTEL with a good location and better breakfast just paying 10 pounds more/night.
