The staff is really nice and helpful. The mattresses are terrible if you have back problems like me, and the upper bunk bed is so close to the lower one that you can't sit in bed. The duvets are short and narrow, if you turn in bed, you may left your back exposed. Everything is quite old, but it is clean enough to survive. If you are looking for something luxurious better pay more than 10 euros a night because here you get what you pay for.

The hostel is really good situated in a nice neighbourhood, next to supermarkets and delicious boulangeries. Yummy! The Sacre coeur is in a walking distance.
It\\\'s quite good for what you are paying. If you share a room with nine people, like I did, of course it will be noisy, but you can use earplugs or move to a single room. It is not the Four Seasons and it\\\'s mainly for young people, so don\\\'t expect it to be a quiet place for resting. The situation is excelent, you have three underground lines at less than five minutes walk, and the central line takes to many important places in like 15 minutes.
The host is so nice!! The ryokan is clean and nice, and the owner is a great helpfull person. It is a little bit far from the city centre, but you can hire a bike in the hostel and move around without any problem. I would definetely recommend the hostel and also discovering Kyoto by bike, which is really amazing and practical.
The hostel was nice enough, but the bed mattresses were too old so you could notice all the springs, and some shower doors didn't close. The room was ok as well as the neighbourhood; full of shops and cheap places for eating, not far from city centre by tube and in a not dangerous area.
