    Great location and one of the friendliest hosts I've ever met. You can store your luggage after checking out (until 16:00) and they'll even lend you a lock. I've stayed at different hostels before and as a woman, I was always worried about security. But Ryokan Hostel felt super safe, at least from my experience. The private bedroom was very cozy but because we were going to be out most of the day, space wasn't an issue. If I were to stay in Kyoto again, I would definitely come back here.

    Great location in Gion: an easy walk to the main streets and close to the subway and bus station. The staff were polite. The beds were very comfortable and private. The atmosphere wasn’t very sociable and we didn’t interact with many other travellers during our stay here but would definitely recommend for location and comfort.

    Very clean and comfortable lodging. Good privacy. Light cooking facility available in common area. Super quiet neighborhood, close to temples. Not much interaction with other guests though.

    Great place to stay with a group or on your own. Downstairs area with food cooking facility's was helpful especially as it was just opposite a shop. Nice and clean bedroom pods with lockable storage and plug sockets as well as spotlessly clean bathrooms! Would definitely stay again. :)

    clean and comfortable. Recommend arriving before dark as the area isn't well lit and not many people were around and I personally was not comfortable. Beds were soft and comfortable, rooms spacious and clean. Bathroom clean, good amenities available. Close to transport and many attractions of kyoto.
