    One of the best hostels I've been to. Super modern, clean, and easy to access - it felt luxurious and didn't break the bank. The rooms are cleaned daily and bedding is changed every three days (if you stay long enough). The staff are all friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Kyoto. It's also located close to a major shopping corner so you can't really run out of things to do.

    Without doubt THE BEST hostel we've ever stayed in! Beds were really comfy and spacious, showers were great, we were given a clean towel and sheets every day which was amazing. Breakfast was help yourself so we didn't go hungry, and the kitchen facilities were great for dinner. Really easy location for accessing Kyoto, 15 mins walk from the main station. Would 100% stay here again, cannot recommend enough.

    Besides some rude guests (that in no way reflected R. Star Hostel) my stay was great. The staff was incredibly helpful and made my stay very welcoming.

    The place was very clean and had plenty of bathrooms and showers. The breakfast was simple but nice to have in the morning. This is not a place to meet other travelers.

    A really good hostel. Their breakfast is awesome and a great way to meet the other people staying in the hostel. Walking distance from major sights and convenience stores on their doorstep.

    Really good location. The staff are friendly and helpful. I like the locker in the room because it doesn't require a padlock. Bathroom is clean and spacious.

    This place has great facilities and is centrally located in Kyoto. The only real concern I have with this place is that my shared room was located on the other side of the wall to the main lounge. Almost every night there were people partying in the lounge into very late in the evening. I would highly recommend this place - but be sure to request to stay in another room than beside the lounge!

    Just a 15 minutes walk from Kyoto Station, superb and amazingly clean hostel. Much more similar to an hotel than an hostel to be honest, therefore lacking a bit of atmosphere. Staff was really kind and helpful when needed. Great value-for-money hostel, would definitely recommend it!

    There was a party happening during our first night in the common area which was 10 metres from our room. It was honestly the loudest gang of people I've ever heard and we could not get to sleep. We were planning to sleep around 9-10 but the noise went on until very late despite the signs saying quiet after 11pm. Some of these people then came in the room at 1.30am, turned on the lights and started making noise. Other than that the stay was perfect, the facilities are great and with free towels.
