    The atmosphere and staff were very relaxed and friendly! The location is perfect and it was overall a very nice experience. I really liked the lounge area on the first floor where you can watch tv and enjoy free tea.

    Spotlessly clean and in a perfect location. The staff where smiley and welcoming. Pods are big enough for you and your bags. The facilities are the best we have seen! Down to free bobbles and hair brushes! We hired bikes from the hostel and it’s 100% the way to see the city. Very bike friendly. Only feedback would be the slippers are a bit small for anyone with size 10 and over feet 😀. Would definitely stay again.

    This is probably the nicest hostel I've been to so far! Dooms are super clean and has plenty of space. Bathroom was also super fancy and nice! Lobby area was very nice to hang out and meet other travellers. Thanks!

    This hostel is in a great location. Close to a train station and walking distance to a lot of the attractions you want to see in Kyoto and the food/restaurant area. The staff were very professional and it was very high tech with advanced key entry systems.

    Had a lovely stay at Ryokan; fresh towels provided daily free of charge and the dorm rooms were spacious and comfortable. Convenient location right near a lot of cute side streets and not too far from the main attractions.

    This is a nice place to stay and the people/staff were nice to me, but there are two main problems that I had with this place. One, it was a bit of a distance from the nearest station, at least compared to the (regular) hostel I stayed at in Tokyo. And secondly, the choice in music selection, was very inappropriate considering it was a Ryokan themed hostel. Way too western, including some rap, 😳 again just not the right place for that. So yeah, disappointing, but pretty nice other than that.
