    Really cool hostel! Super modern and clean with the best facilities. Really great location, easy to walk to the river and temples. Also close to stations and bus stops so you can easily get to the attractions further away. Not social but it’s comfortable and the common area is really relaxed with free tea.

    To start, I had a wonderful experience staying here. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and speak English well. Even though is slightly higher priced hostel than most places - it’s hundred percent worth it. The facility is so clean and provides fresh towels and all the basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, etc). I’d say more - but I’d definitely recommend this hostel to both my lower budget and high budget people.

    This is a great hostel in Gion close to bars and restaurants. Very quiet which suited me but not the place to meet people and go our. Spotlessly clean and great facilities.

    Very clean and with plenty of amenities. Rooms and beds are spacious. However, the free locker provided is tiny. You can just Store a laptop and your passport basically. If you want a bigger locker you have to pay. The WiFi is horribly weak in the rooms for anything other than basic messaging. The “kitchen” is one induction cooker but we never saw anyone else use it in the 5 days we were there. Everyone just keeps to themselves and doesn’t socialize. No planned activities either.

    A clean hostel but the staff were incredibly mean. They acted like they were doing me a favour by letting me keep my luggage stored beyond 4pm when I had a nightbus to catch that evening, and charged me 500 yen to use the communal showers that night after I checked out.... and I used my own towel. Not impressed, never been treated more like an inconvenience my whole life.
