    Had a great stay! Hostel is located next to a subway and a good bus route to Gion district. The staff were especially friendly and helpful - and there’s breakfast which we hadn’t gotten before in japan. The place is clean, there’s shampoo and body wash and security locks for your bags :) has a great stay!

    A great place to stay in Kyoto. It’s steps away from the metro and super close to the Imperial Palace. The free breakfasts were a welcome treat and they have a fleet of washers and dryers so there was no worry about waiting for one to open. The rooms were comfortable and secure with a keypad system. They don’t have big lockers for packs, but there are tons of cable locks throughout to keep larger items secure. The staff were lovely and very helpful!

    Ottimo ostello con staff disponibilissimo. Ottima e abbondante colazione. A sole 4 fermate di metro dalla Kyoto Station. Vende anche biglietti autobus. Vicinissimo ai giardini imperiali e ben collegato. Belle docce. Servizio lavatrice e asciugatrice a pagamento. CONSIGLIATO

    I have no complaints about the hostel itself whatsoever. It’s really clean, got great facilities, the breakfast is really good, and bunks feel very private. However we did have a bad experience with one of the staff members. Everyone else was amazing though! The environment is also fairly social.

    Very Good

    The staff are the best part of this hostel. Very kind and welcoming. The breakfast they put on was lovely with miso soup and home made bread. However the dorm we were in felt 'thrown together'. No real interior design or thought towards layout or use of space. Just wooden bunkbeds shoved in a room. The mattress is really just a mattress topper as it is only 3" thick. Would consider looking elsewhere for a return visit.

    They have bedbugs. I emailed them concerning this so as not to cause a scene by saying it out loud. Have never gotten a response nor seen action on their part. Come to realize there was a review from a year ago warning about this very issue. They know, just don't care. Don't stay here.
