        awesome place, but watch your head! literally!”

        I loved this place, ended up extending to 2 more nights here after my initial 2 night stay. The staff is very kind and helpful, and they speak good English. There's free light breakfast from 8-11 which consists of toast and jam. There's a bath as well, which is pretty rare for a guest house. Fair warning though, if you're taller than 170 cm (or about 5'9 and up) and you get the bottom bunk, there's a beam that you may end up hitting your head on multiple times. It made for some good laughs with my fellow guests when one us bumped his head after we just talked about it. All in all, lovely place, centrally located, plenty of amenities in the area, right along the Hankyu line for easy access to Osaka city, 10/10 will definitely return here in the future.

Plenty of space to move around and organize one's self. The bed is comfy and the shared paces are clean and plentiful. Happy to recommend to others.

        I stayed here for only 1 night for my business. Just picked because of the price and its good rate. The room is cozy and clean, every other facilities too. Stuff gave me some tips about hanging around the area so I could enjoy my free time there. Definitely has value way more than the price!

        Helpful and kind staff! The bus map he gave me was very useful. Located at a quiet street but few minutes walk from bus stop and 10 minutes walk from metro. Enough place for luggage. There are clean and comfortable. I slept well at the first night. But there's only thin board and curtain between the beds. When my roommates started chatting at 3AM, i can't go back to sleep... Except for this everything was nice. (but there's a small stairs to second floor, their staff are willing to help with the suitcase, but still, not recommend if you are travel with a huge suitcase.)

        The place was cozy and perfectly located near the station. It has only a curtain protecting the beds, so there's no a sense of privacy, but that wasn't inconvinient for me. I really enjoyed stying in Fairfield. Breakfast is included and the staff was kind and helpful! ♥

        Overpriced”

        It's nice and cozy and I enjoyed staying here. However it's extremely overpriced on weekends and/or peak times. Many hostels have thin walls between the beds, this one only had curtains so it was very loud and not much privacy. Also regarding the price, I was lied to when I asked if the rate online was the same as the direct rate at the front desk, they told me yes so I extended my stay with them directly - later I found out that the online rate was consistently 400 Yen cheaper per night

        Good space but terrible mattress ”

        Very friendly staff, super clean and biggest plus is the size of the cabin where you can actually stand up straight and move around your bed in private. Biggest minus however, I could not bear the mattress more than 2 nights (not picky usually) because it is so hard, feels like you are sleeping on wood and I woke up during the night with pain. Bad sleep doesn’t make for a good vacation. Otherwise I did really like the place

        I totally stayed 4 nights there, it is a very clean hostel, you can use the kitchen, you can put your food in the fridge, but some backpacker there just took the food. It is a 15 person dorm room, but it is well separate with curtain, it is just like a small room, with cabinet and aisle. I will definitely come back next time.

        Great value - staff, atmosphere, facilities, and cleanliness for cheap”

        Koh and the rest of the staff were really friendly and nice from the get go. The shared area offers a good place to meet other people, most of which share the good atmosphere. The location is convenient to walk to ninjo castle, and take buses to anywhere (with the economical 500 yen day pass sold there). Nightlife area is about 30 minutes walk away. Keep in mind you need to bring your own soap/towel since they're not included in the price. but even adding that cost this place is still cheaper than most and definitely good value!

        Excellent stay in Kyoto”

        Quite close to Omiya station, which makes you easily acscess to the ancient city and travel to other places around. The guesthouse only has 1 room with no more than 20 beds, which also makes this place quiet and easy. What's more, the private bed area is quite spacious. Not like many other capsule room, the private bed is decorated by curtain, which makes you cozy and get more fresh air. The kitchen and bathroom is quite clean, since there will be no many guests here due to capacity, the public area is not crowded and no need to wait and queue. The staff is very nice and friendly. What a lovely place, I am sure I would come back next time when I travel alone to Kyoto again.
