    This hostel had one of the cleanest and hotel-like atmosphere that I was impressed. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Kyoto. The staffs were fluent in English and very friendly and helpful. They provide you with a clean towel to use over the stay. The toast they provide for breakfast was one of the best plain bread I've had. I also got a paper-folded Pikachu for a souvenir :p Thank you for hosting me!

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! It was a clean, modern, and cute place in a convenient location from Kyoto station and other sites! My only complaint is that the staff could have been a little more knowledgeable about the surrounding area. But they were friendly.

    My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at R Star. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The beds were super comfy and really spacious for a single bed in a dorm (maybe like the size of 1.5 single). Really nice that they provided a towel free of charge, and everything felt really clean and well looked after. Breakfast was standard toast and jam affair but they had some flavoured breads which was a really nice touch. Highly recommend staying here if you are in Kyoto :)

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best hostel I’ve been to in my entire life. Building is modern-style with great atmosphere. PROS - Free and early breakfast (nice variety of breads), free coffee/tea - Very safe, they offer a big locker - Big common room and kitchen - Huge showers and bed spaces CONS - About 20mins walk from the train station, which was not a problem to me - A little far from main attractions if you don’t like to walk. I love to walk so it was great

    It was a little challenging to find and further away from the main roads than I personally preferred. Other than that, this hostel was a 10/10. Very comfortable beds and lovely shower/bath amenities. A nice atmosphere in the mornings with toast, coffee, tea, etc. Would definitely stay here again. Thoroughly enjoyed it

    I stayed for three nights in the beginning of April. The hostel is - as mentioned - more like a hotel than a hostel, maybe because everything looks very modern and clean. The atmosphere is still okay though and people sit in the common area a lot. Plus there is free (but simple) but free breakfast! The hostel is located in the center of town, circa a 20 minutes walk, which felt a bit far. But its totally ok if you take the metro or walk the distance.

    Great location - easy from main station by public transport or cheap taxi and great access to sites either on foot, by bus or by subway/train. Rooms and facilities were clean, although the top bunks are very open to all lights, both room ones and next door bunks, as they are open at the top.... no real luggage space and lockers only big enough for day packs. Free breakfast of toast (variety of breads) tea and coffee and super close to amazing food places!
