    The hostel is near many major metro lines so super easy to get around the city. Also, there are many well equipped and tattoo friendly public baths in the area. The staff were very nice and up for chatting or helping me when I needed random supplies. The lockers are huge, the beds have a good amount of space and privacy, and the mattress is pretty comfy. I ended up staying here twice and would have again but it was more expensive due to New Years. There's a grocery store close by.

    I stayed there for a long time but enjoyed every moment too. It's a japanese traditional house so take this into account (not all the rooms are heated, small kitchen). However, the staff was incredible. Really helpful and creating a great atmosphere between people. Location was also good, walking distance to main spots. If I come back to Kyoto, I will stay again.

    the place is rather old which i love cos it feels really authentic. the structure is mostly wooden though, so if you have an irrational fear of fire, you might lose sleep if you stay here. staff is very friendly and accommodating :)

    The hostel is very cute, “old Japanese”- style, and the staff is VERY friendly. I would recommend hiring a bike from the hostel, it will get you anywhere you want to for a cheap price (and you get to see much more!). The staff helps you with anything and everything.

    Great hostel located close to public transport, restaurants and sites. Beds are pretty comfy and the dorm has a lock box next to each bed to store your stuff. Staff are very helpful, would stay here again.

    Very quiet place. Staff seemed shy too, although were very helpful when you asked them questions. The place itself is a traditional Japanese home, so very authentic for Kyoto but also you can hear everything in other rooms. Showers being outside a necessary evil but nevertheless makes them a chilly experience. Location is good for Nijo Castle, but not much else as it's too far from Kyoto centre to be in the mix, but not near enough to the geisha district to be touristy.
