    Loved this hostel! I hadn't counted on such a great location. It's an easy subway ride from Kyoto station and almost IN Nishiki market, which is just such a bonus for nightttime wanderings and morning coffee. The staff are kind and speak really excellent English. The common room is comfortable and the all-female floor feels extremely safe. My bed (female 12-dorm) was very comfortable and surprisingly private with a curtain. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Superb location right next to Nishiki Market. Wake up and just pop over there for breakfast and go on with your day. Bus stop and subway within walking distance to hostel. You can even walk to Gion and the shrines and temples in the area if you wanna. The location is SO convenient. Lots of guides and recommendations in common area as well. Staff were friendly, place was clean with sufficient bathing rooms, toilets and powder rooms. Highly recommended.

    Stayed here 5 nights. Was very comfortable. It was pretty hot and humid in the room, but after asking a couple times, the staff got the thermostat adjusted to a comfortable temperature. Great location, great facilities. Would stay again!

    Enjoyed my stay! Staff are very friendly and the downstairs lobby is nice to hang out in. I love that they have a tub you can use too! My only dislike was that the floor I stayed at, the tap water was constantly hot which made washing my face a hassle.

    Good security and really clean but there is not much social things to do . If you are looking to meet people go to another hostel. If you need a really good place to sleep go here.

    It was a nice clean place. It is right next to the Nishiki Market and right in Gion district. They have these little machines to dry your shoes for when it’s rainy outside which was really convenient. One thing I can really complain about is how HOT AND HUMID it was in the room. I spoke to multiple of the other girls staying in the room too and they all thought the same. We would try lowering the air but it’ll only go to 20 Celsius (68 F) but will go back up to 25 Celsius in 5 min which is 77 F

    Mattresses are very thin and there doesn't seem to be a huge amount of socialising other than that it's great!
