                  Good place to stay”

                  I stayed in Kyoto for one night only. I arrived to Kyoto late and the hotel was so good that they sent me an email to teach me how to check-in myself. Everything in the hotel is good. Both capsule (inc. bed sheet), shower room, toilet are clean and comfortable. Especially the capsule is spacious enough. If you are a backpacker, you must love it. But the only concern is the hotel is not near to any JR station. But there are Kyoto metro stations and bus stops. Overall, it is a worth-stayed hotel as the cost is excellent.

                  Very good”

                  Quite far away from Kyoto JR Station. But you can still get to here by bus and metro. This hostel is cheap in price and it's the biggest virtue. And it's tidy and neat. But some guests made the pantry (opened area) not that clean. It's my largest concern. But overall it's a good place to stay, especially the capsule is spacious enough.

                  PRICE NOT INCLUDE CITY TAX, but good place”

                  Price not inclusive of city tax (200Y/person/day). shoes stored at entrance on rack. both floors have microwave, sink, utensils, plates, laundry (1 washer 1 dryer per floor). Medium fridge near reception. Complimentary tea and coffee. staff use washer and dryer during part of day. 3 sinks, 2 showers, one including a small square bath, 2 toilets all on both floors. Showers aren't cramped, capsules very spacious. eating area on upper floor, and smoking area outside. 4 coathanger holders in each capsule and a common rack for storing other clothes. Kitchen between toilets/stairs and capsules - annoying. Nowhere to place toiletries at sink. Ample hangers in shower. Kitchen narrow. Generally did not feel cramped unless multiple people using kitchen. Socialisation natural at eating spaces. Ladders to upper bunks not affixed to anything - relies on friction. Handles exist to help on upper bunks. Staff are european - I heard spanish, french, german and english.

                  After backpacking for a few weeks and staying on mediocre beds, this was such a welcome surprise. The beds are top notch, and our shared capsule was very cool. The staff are only part time as they can stay for free if they work there. But the people we met were nice enough. There is not a lot of space, you’re really on top of each other and there’s no common space aside from a hallway converted to have chairs in it. Also, the only way up to hostel is through a slightly sketchy elevator. Also, there is a charge for everything, towels, ear plugs etc. This review is starting to sound negative but my experience was overall very positive. I would recommend this place. The location is incredible, the beds are great and it was very clean.
