    This might have been the best hostel I have ever stayed in, regardless of country. Clean, efficiently layout, organized, and helpful staff. I loved that there was a floor only for women - accessible only to women via keycard. Would highly recommend to female travelers!

    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.

    Great location. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms. My only issue was that the bunks are like deep and narrow caves with NO ventilation. I have lived in other hostels in Japan and I know for a fact that it's not the norm. One has to struggle to get in, get out and stay in the cave.

    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!

    I found snot smeared all over the walls in the room we stayed in, and the toilet smelled very bad all the time, but otherwise was a good hostel

    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

    Great location, exactly where you want to be, and the staff are super friendly and helpful, I really appreciated them! However, the lower floor where the 100 numbered mixed dorm room is smelt so incredibly bad that I had to hold my breath whenever I was walking down the corridor - it was really gross. The dorm room was also a bit dank but okay, it was really just the corridor and bathroom smell that were a problem. Upper levels don’t have that problem so perhaps it is something they will fix.
