    Holy fucamoli this place is amazing. It's so relaxing (THE BATH IS AWESOME!) because the staff is so wonderful. Sayaka and Rie are amazing people who are extremely welcoming and helpful. It always made my day when they would be excited to know what my adventures were and send me off with a いってらしゃい. The shower and bathrooms are cleaned every day so it's absolutely spotless. The location is so perfect. The gojokarasuma station is a 2 minute walk. Overall it was really relaxing and healing. Thanks!

    Absolutely amazing. The room was larger than most tatami hostel rooms I’ve been to, and the hostess was so friendly and helpful. Much more personal than a fancy hotel. We felt genuinely welcomed here. And the location is very convenient from the subway.

    The staff was super helpful and very kind. They go above and beyond. The hostel was quiet and sleepy while I was there but it might've been the off season. Great facilities comfy beds and great location! Walking distance from Kyoto station or first stop (Gojo) off the metro.

    Quiet and comfortable place to stay, in a relatively convenient location. The best part was Sayaka, she was such a friendly and helpful host! I always enjoyed having a chat with her. Would stay here again when I am next in Kyoto.

    Good place. Definitely worth the money. Everything is really clean and the room we got was big (2 people twin beds). The location is good overall. It’s one station from Kyoto station. The public transport in Kyoto is not very developed- there are only two subway lines and the rest is based on slow busses. So you find yourself walking to most places. Given this, the guesthouse is not in an area of touristic interest. Yet it is quite and we were happy to walk the 30-40 minutes.
