    We really loved staying here. Check in was simple. The location was very nice with three conbini's within 2 minutes walk nearby and access to transit very convenient. An excellent place to stay while exploring Kyoto!

    Amazing hostel. One of the best we have ever stayed at. The beds were great - even though the dorm sleeps about 20 people, you wouldn’t notice as all the beds are boxed in with curtains. Very comfortable and good lounge space.

    Dorm was nice and quiet with great facilities. Beds really soft which meant I got a great nights sleep. Wonderful location in Gion with lots of restaurants nearby. 100% recommend and will be back!

    Great pod type hostel within walking distance of the river front and many great things to see in Kyoto. Close to a subway station for easy access to everything else. Immaculately clean rooms and bathrooms with great showers and amenities.

    This hostel was very good, the beds were comfy, the common areas were nice (the was a cool roof top area as well), the staff were friendly and the drinks were cheap. I only had two small complaints; Firstly, there wasn’t really anywhere to put your bag in the room, which made the bed quite cramped as I ended up putting mine in the space down the side. Secondly, because my bed was by the door to the room it could get quite loud. But generally I would highly recommend this place

    Very clean, looks like it was renovated fairly recently. No lockers for your backpack or suitcase, just a safety box. Location is really good to explore Gion and the east side of Kyoto.

    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.

    Comfortable stay in a good location close to transport, restaurants, bars and a 24hr convenience shop. Staff are friendly and speak good English. Only slight negative is that 10am to 4pm is cleaning time and they ask you not to use the bedrooms or bathrooms in that time.
