    Had a great stay at Bola Bola. The place was clean, quiet, and the couple running the guest house were very nice and helpful. They had maps handy with recommendations on food and tourist locations. I would stay here again.

    Lovely family who are so friendly, in a cute suburb outside of Kyoto and close to the Arashiyama bamboo groves. It's also just a 10 minute walk to a nice big onsen. Would highly recommend.

    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 hosts were over the top friendly & helping including helping me sort out a maiko show, a tea ceremony, & a Onsen that allows tattoos! The accommodation is modest yet comfortable. Also folks at Matsubokkuri restaurant nearby were fun & helpful & the food was delish 🤩

    Overall a nice place to stay, great location and hosts. Our only feedback would be that the whole hostel was cold, especially the 2nd shower. The rooms did have individual heating, which worked really well, but this made the chill of the rest of the hostel much worse.
