Very close to the JR Kyoto station and plenty of decent eateries. Bright and fairly spacious rooms with large kitchen and common room. But overall lacked any atmosphere.
Very nice hostel only a short (and cheap Y120) tram ride away, or a 20 min walk. Very close to many temples and close to the Spectacles Bridge. Nice common area and kitchen, only down side is no wifi in the rooms. Need to put curtains on the beds.
Very close to the peace park and a tram ride from the JR station. Very nice Private Japanese style room. As usual very friendly and helpful staff!!
Overall an OK place to stay, clean, functional. Staff are very friendly as always in Japan but the dorm room is a converted meeting room and the bathroom is a normal hotel room at the other end of the floor. We stayed during the F1 race so there wasn't much choice left in Nagoya. No tea or coffee. No lockers or safe place to leave valuables. Right next to a lot of restaurants which was nice.
Best hostel so far in Japan! Nice big common room. Comfy beds. Lots of information about sights and how to get to them. Great location near to Nishiki Market and many bus routes to other attractions.
