    Staff were really lovely and happy to help with anything. Atmosphere was great as it really felt like a traditional Japanese experience with the design of the building. Shower room was a little tight, but everything else was lovely.

    Such a lovely place to stay. Staff were really sweet and helpful, they show you around the hostel and tell you how to get around kyoto. It's a very chill place which is nice if you want that. Beds were cosy and free coffee which is always a bonus! It's a bit further out the way but doesn't really matter when there's busses on the doorstep that take you wherever you want to go.

    The location is not that far from Kyoto station and a lot of bus stops to main attraction nearby. The staff were wonderful and helpful, they made my trip a lot easier. Security wise its not as secure if staying at a 6 person bedroom, cause the doors were rarely locked. But since its japan, its not likely there will be robbery. It sure is an unforgettable experience staying at a 100 years old buliding

    Cheap and good value but it's more a guesthouse than a hostel. If you are looking for an authentic warm and chill atmosphere hostel, it's not here. If you want calm, quiet and don't want to be bothered, then go. The common area is a bit small and dark though. Classical music was nice. It's an old traditional Japanese house, nice experience to try while in Japan. A bit far from center. The lady at the reception was nice and helpful. They kept my luggage and helped me for transportation.
