    It was a really lovely experience. The staff were incredibly nice, walking distance from a lot of temples and the Gion area. The dormitory room is quite small, but the beds were comfortable and the shared area was great with its kotatsu(heated Japanese table) so it wasn’t a problem. For an authentic Japanese experience I would recommend this hostel. If you’re looking for a hostel to party at, this is the wrong choice.

    I had a really good time at Haruya Hostel and can really recommend it. Clean, friendly, it's good located and you have everything! You can experience an traditional house in Japan (the only thing that the room was small, but anyways in front of the female dorm there was enough room to organise your things..) I would stay there again.

    We loved staying in this hostel. It is not very active to converse with others but it is not like we were ever there anyways! There is so much to see and within walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful showing us places we should go and what time to do it. My husband and I had a private room on the first floor. We even had our own private entrance! Well worth the money and we would come back here if we meander our way to Kyoto ever again.

    Great location! We had some of our best food and drinks (Beer Komachi) right next to the hostel, and all of Kyoto was easily accessible by foot and bus/subway. We were able to easily walk to the Yasaka Shrine and the Philosopher's Path. The receptionist spoke English clearly and gave some great recommendations on what to do during our stay. The private room was quite small, and the walls were paper thin, but we had enough room for our backpacks. The bathroom was downstairs from the rooms.

    THe hostel is very close to the metro station and on the route of some buses, but u can very easily in the pub and restorants area. There a temples at a walkable distance and shops. The building is pretty old and the dorm is very small, but u can get by. The toilets and the showers are clean. The staff is very kind and welcoming!

    Very very friendly staffs, they provided lots of information and recommended places for food. It's a great experience to stay in an ancient shop lot, love the smell of the tatami mats. But I guess the only drawback is the really small room for four beds. There's no space in the room to organize my belongings, I had to carry my luggage out to the common area to do so. Maybe choose the other rooms instead of the dorm room.

    Very Good

    The location is great, and the gentleman at the front desk has been super nice and helpful. However, he said the building is 100 years old and it shows. I guess we were biased having just biked the shiminami kaido and looking forward to a comfortable place... This wasn't it. Shower was decent, but the toilet stalls are actually outside, one female and one mixed. the kitchen was very basic with little counter top space, and the kitchen sink seemed to be decades old. mixed dorm room was cramped
