    ‘Catch the noodles’ :))) It’s a very cute traditional house and the owners are awesome, they really make an atmosphere where you can meet other travellers. Make sure to be there on Friday for the dinner party, it was really great! Very close to metro station as well.

    If you're looking for a place in Kyoto, stop looking, this is it. You can't find better place to stay and meet people. This is the most kind and welcoming hostel I've ever been and they really make you feel like home - plus, they have the best breakfast I've ever had in a hostel! Just please note they have a dog inside - Jiro is adorable, but pay attention to that if you happen to be allergic! A special thank you to Miwa, who was so very patient with me trying to learn some japanese! :) Mata ne!

    Breakfast is amazing! It can easily be your only meal for the whole day! Free coffee and tea all day is a nice plus, too. Ambiance is relaxed and cozy. Only down side is a far distance from any JR connections. Very close to bus and subway if you don't mind taking those. Overall this place gets a high recommendation!

    Absolutely fantastic. Great breakfast. Had dinner one day and it was like eating with a Japanese family. Host took us to his public bath with sauna and hot tub for free. Male dorm poorly sound isolated (only thing keeping from a perfect 10 score) because of sliding Japanese walls. Reasonable bike rental. Host and at least one staff speaks decent English. Looks like a home, feels like a home.

    A really good location with a 10 minute walk getting you to the main entertainment district or a five minute walk gets you to the metro. The staff are super friendly and the breakfast is genuinely amazing. There's a main common area which helps add to atmosphere. The only negative is that the mattress was quite thin but otherwise it's a great place to visit Kyoto from!
