    I goofed and booked a mixed dorm and they squeezed us into the female dorm last minute. Ya'll are rock stars, great place to stay when traveling Kyoto! Excellent place to meet other travelers and get some not so touristy spots to visit. Highly recommended the cheap onsen near by and excellent food along the river when staying at this location. I definitely will be back :)

    This is a great hostel, right in the heart of the Gion district in Kyoto. It’s close to the subway and you can easily walk to the main shopping and eating areas, with convenience stores nearby. The hostel has a nice communal area and great facilities, including free green tea! The dorms are very secure and have cosy beds with lockers built-in. The bathrooms are clean with lovely shower products. You also get free towels EVERY day, which is rare for a hostel! The staff are very friendly too.

    I've done several Hostel around Japan and I loved this one. When you traveling alone you can sometimes be really tired and at Ryokan they know that so they provide some good bed, free earplug, it suits me. The staff was really nice and available. Atmosphere was peacfull and location close to everything. Would recommand 100% if your budget is tight but still want comfort! Cheers

    Excellent hostel! Easily the best I have ever stayed at. The cubicles are spacious and feel like you have your own space. Everything is spotless and the bathrooms are positively luxurious. Nice lounge area downstairs to sit and microwave/toaster etc for food. Location ideal. Definitely recommend!

    Super clean and very quiet in a beautiful area of Kyoto! It's not a party hostel but is close enough to bars and nightlife if that's your thing. Coming in late at night isn't an issue either just be quiet. Super close to lot's of sight seeing as well. I would definitely stay here again. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and facilities (shower, bathrooms, etc) compared to most hostels I've stayed in. The staff are very friendly as well.
