    I booked in to PBP and realised afterwards that my train would arrive past the check in time. I emailed and the staff were very accommodating. Not only that I was upgraded for both nights of my stay. It is a lovely boutique hostel. Very well designed and very comfortable. The facilities and the staff were both great. Highly recommend. Thanks PBP.

    I stayed 3 nights in Kyoto at PBP Hostel, then returned for 2 nights a week later. The hostel is very well located, connected to most places of interest in Kyoto. Their room-concept is very cool and the cleanliness of the place is irreproachable. The staff is very helpful and even lent me a laptop needed to deal with a job-related emergency. I definitely recommend staying at PBP Hostel and i would do it myself whenever I have the chance to visit again Kyoto.

    This was such an amazing find in Kyoto! The beds were spacious and it was such a chill vibe throughout, it honestly feels like you’re outdoors in a bamboo forest sleeping in little huts - all beds are separated from one another. The only struggle I had was with the light, it was really difficult to see with just the tiny lamp in the room so adding more light would’ve made the stay perfects!

    I love coming to hostels when they give you a map, detailed directions, and give you the low down of everything in the hostel. PBP was exactly that! The atmosphere was lovely -I felt like I was in a tree house! Would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend.

    This hostel was very adequate for a short trip. It was clean and the staff was friendly enough. There was nowhere to lock your belongings, as you could only place them in your bed, but the security of the facility itself was commensurate with that of the rest of Japan. It was very convenient to have a Family Mart right below the hostel, and the train station is only a couple blocks away to get you anywhere you want to go. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay I highly recommend it.

    Very nice amenities in this new hostel! The staff was extremely friendly and willing to give suggestions on things to do. The location is not the greatest: it is far from many attractions and not many food options around. I do suggest they add more lighting, as I had to use my headlamp. More outlets are also needed to charge electronics. There is not much of a social atmosphere here, which is great if you are looking for somewhere to just relax and be alone.
