    Wonderful hostel. Clean, maintained, secure, and comes with a superb staff. Conveniently located 5 mins away from Kyoto station. I stayed in hostels for 2-weeks in Japan and this was the best by far. Will definitely be back. -トム

    Amazing stay. I would recommend to ANYONE (and have been). Just two blocks away from Kyoto Station and staff are incredibly friendly. They were always able to recommend a great place to visit and eat. They also booked a table for us at these recommended restaurants for us. We intend to stay here again!

    Staff was very friendly super clean and overall good facilities. Location was a bit of a distance from most things, but transport was easy. Atmosphere was actually better than I would have thought but it was very communal and easy to meet and hangout in big communal area and bar. Also had a roof, but was rainy most days so wasn't used while I was there

    I've stayed at the Mosaic twice now and both times I was so impressed! The facilities are super clean, the rooms are comfortable, the luggage/personal item lockers are super roomy and convenient, and the atmosphere in the common spaces is great -- yummy snacks and drinks, and a cool vibe all around. My go-to rec in Kyoto. Thanks guys!
