    Kokomo-San was an amazing host! It was always clean, she helped me find all the local spots and ways to avoid the large tourist crowds. The house was super comfy, and my room had its own personal heater which was perfect for the chilly weather. It is located in the cutest neighborhood of Kyoto with lots of local amenities and super close to the train station (both local and JR stations). Loved staying here!

    The staff here were super nice and gave us a little map of the lovely neighbourhood - cute places to eat and a sense of how neat it would be to be a local here. The atmosphere in the hostel is friendly; it's a sweet, homely guesthouse. The walls are very thin though - just something to bear in mind if you're planning a 5.30am wakeup for a crowd-free Arashiyama experience. We had a family with young children in the next room who all stayed up, talking at regular volume, late into the night!

    Beautiful place with a nice quiet atmosphere. The hosts were very friendly. Its pretty far away from the city centre but the location is a 1 minute walk away from a train line and located in a cute neighbourhood. Its also right around the corner from a large grocery store and many restaurants. I would definitely stay again.

    Our stay at here was a fantastic getaway from the cities standard hustle & bustle atmosphere. The home itself is very tranquil and traditional with great facilities. We really enjoyed staying here as a couple as we were able to really relax and enjoy the quieter side of Kyoto. Really close to the Arashiyama National Park (20 min walk) or a short walk to the tram or train station to get to central Kyoto. The host family were very kind & helpful to us.

    The house itself was pretty old and a bit creaky, but it really had its own charm. There is no central heating in Japanese houses, so do remember that. On the hallway it was quite cold, but the room could be heated to a very comfortable temperature. The staff was incredibly friendly, spoke English very well and was flexible! I thank them so much for making our stay there so good! They gave us a handdrawn map of the area with recommendations, which was very helpful!

    old facility run by old couple who seem never stayed in hostels (zero hospitality). stayed in private room which you can hear everything. Like 5am people walking on corridor, train passing, someone sneezing and- they can hear you too. an old guy at the reception and they leave house without notifing guests so you can't ask for help. Toilet always smells bad + dirty sheet sticked on the seat seem never changed, no tissue/towel provided. No place to eat nearby. 1min to Randen line was only good
