    Really great value for money! The location is simply great, in one of the best areas in Kyoto. The lockers are spaceous, the beds comfortable and the bathroom good. Cannot think of a single complaint.

    Super awesome location—our room had a view of the river. Also there's a pretty bar downstairs. The only drawback is that there isn't much of a common space and no real kitchen, so if you're looking to save money by cooking, that might be difficult. The common space can really only hold around 4 people at a time, so isn't ideal. But that's fine if you're spending most of your time exploring Kyoto!
