    very nice and friendly hostel”

    Hostel is very nice, well-organised, well-equipped. Receptionist is really friendly and much helping. there are so many foreigners staying there but it's quiet adn very tidy, you can find everything you need in this hostel :) Hostel is next to Nishiki market, however, you know Kyoto is an old city so less activities and all shops/restaurants are closed soon, you should have dinner sooner than usual to have more choices.

    Quite the Suprise!”

    We didn't expect the hostel to be as spectacular as it was. We had our own private unit and it was in great condition, spotless and almost seemed like we were the first to ever stay in the unit. Staff is very responsive, and the location couldn't be better. Right next to Nishiki Market. Very ideal and cheap place to stay. Very much worth!

    Good value hostel”

    Hotel located nearby shijokawaramachi ,that you can go shopping without walk to far. The facilities are new because hotel just remodeled recently, you don’t need to worry WC or shower rooms will not enough for each floor to use, but maybe have to concern the quality of the visitors lol , I found out the girl (because I stayed at the female only floor) who use the shower room before me had use blazer to shaved something and left at the shelf is very disgusting!!!!! People work at the front desk are welcome and friendly, but they had strict rule with the check in time,you won’t get your room key before 4 pm but it’s okay to me.

    1) good location. To nishiki market, 5mins walk. 2) for budget traveller who drive to kyoto. Please park opposite daimaru shopping mall, Times parking. We managed to find, 24hours cost yen 1900. From grids hostel to parking, by walk about 9mins. Or you can get more details from grids staff. They really helpful. 3) their breakfast worth for it. Yen about 600. Better book the accommodation with breakfast. Definite, you will not regret..

    We got lucky and booked this before it had even opened which means we got a great price for a central location. Can’t fault it for its cleanliness. It’s actually a lovely place to stay and so close to the Nishe Market. The only thing we felt was that it is part hostel/part hotel. It’s not sure what it is which makes it difficult to know what you’re getting. We would have liked to have had cooking facilities as we were expecting a hostel and it was near the end of our trip and we didn’t want to have to eat out. The lack of kitchen area was probably because they have a cafe which does breakfast which we completely understand but wasn’t really what we thought we were getting. This is our personal opinion and other than that it was a great bargain. Basically a hotel experience for a hostel price. The other facilities were top notch and beds comfy!

    I would recommend to have a coin exchange machine for laundry since the staff does not have enough coins to exchange and clients had to go to the nearest convenience store to purchase something so they can exchange their bills for coins. Also to have laundry detergents to be sold in the facility for convenient laundry.

    Great staff but hostel is very basic.”

    Good location and helpful staff but overall you can find much better accommodations. While the room was cheap, the fees for anything else (towels, breakfast, drinks, ect) are quite high. Extremely late check in and early check out, I have never known a hotel/hostel to need 6+ hours to return beds before.

    Great hostel, staff were great and the location is brilliant. Only negative was that unless your rent a towel, there is no way to dry your hands, no towels or hand driers to be seen. Just seems like an odd choice!

    cushion and sleeping mat heavily sounds”

    I totally understand the risk, i.e. untidy, smelly might occur when booking sharing dormitory like this. However, this time I got trouble with the noise from the cushion and sleeping mat from neighbors when they turn themselves while they were sleeping. I could not sleep for whole night. I asked staff for changing the room, but they said there were no rooms available to change. I would emphasize that this noise is not because of other customers, It is from the bad facilities (cushion and sleeping mat). This is the first and last time I stay in such dormitory. Never come back.
