This is my favorite hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly and the rooms were so nice! Definitely going to try and go back! The food is also delicious. Very nice to stay somewhere more traditional. Much love to the Gojo team :)

Nice traditional hostel, very convenient location with a train station and multiple bus stops nearby, as well as a Family Mart, 7/11, and a Lawson. Kyōto Station is only a few stops with a nearby bus. The hostel itself is very unique, and provides a lovely traditional guesthouse experience. The staff is friendly, and the hostel is well kept, and there’s also a cafe on the first floor. There wasn’t much of a social atmosphere though, so if you’re looking for that, I might not recommend this place

It was amazing experience to stay in this hostel, closest to Japanese style minka. There are no lockers and you have to share bathroom with all guests but style of rooms and overall experience makes up for it. Loved it
