Excellent location and services!”

I have no question toward the cleanliness of this hotel, it is the true Japan standard! I booked a private room with bathroom. The room wasn't spacious but enough for two persons packing medium luggage bags. The toilet is surprisingly bigger than expected. I also booked this place with free breakfast and it was simple breakfast but delicious. They also offer laundry but you need to pay. Staff are helpful so do not hesitate to ask them. Next, kudos for the superb location! 3 mins walk to the Nishiki Market which will later connect to larger shopping districts (Nishiki, Tenmari, Shinkyogoku). All these places are walkable distance. The closest subway station is Kawaramachi, overall this hotel is located in the central of Kyoto where it is convenient to many attraction places in Kyoto. The furthest we went only take about 30+ mins of train ride for Fushimi Inari Temple and Arashiyama. Will come back for this again.

Amazing Location, solid value”

The location of this hostel is great - right next to the famous Nishiki Market, and very close to the Shijo Kawaramachi station. Breakfast was nice - morning curry and rice, assorted bread and pastries, some eggs and sausages and a potato salad made for a pleasant start to the day. Buying a room with breakfast is cheaper than buying the breakfast day of. The first towel is provided for free. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend.

its an ok hostel for solo, family or couple travellers”

the location was abit difficult to find but if you get off hankyu kawaramachi station, its a few mins walk to the hotel. almost complete ameneties because they dont provide toothbrushes only towels and they charge for the 2nd towel. breakfast consists of rice, curry, cereal, toast, milk, coffee or tea. you have to pay for noodles and other snacks. they have days where they have movie nights and happy hour. cleanliness can be improved because the beds are abit dusty. shower room was abit cramped. but overall, its good if you're staying in kyoto cos its near kawaramachi and gion shijo stations. but since i wanted to go back to osaka, I didnt stay for my 2nd night. you can visit kyoto in a day then go back to osaka via hankyu line takes you only 1 hour

Excellent”

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!

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..

Pristine”

Extremely clean, with attractive decor that also contributed to the feeling of cleanliness and restfulness. The bed was wide and comfortable, there was a USB connection/charger right next to the bed in addition to the usual plug and lamp, and the shower was great-- good hot water, lots of pressure, as long as I used it. Perhaps because it felt a little more upscale (I did get my price at a discount, so I'm not sure of usual rates), there were also many guests of an older age than I usually see at hostels, and plenty of Japanese folks, too. This meant it was also a very quiet and pleasant sleeping / staying environment.

Very convenience! ”

What I love the most from this hotel are location and facilities. It's very nearby with Nishiki Market and Gion. The market is the best place to get delicious food and Gion is to see "real" geisha. Given the price very affordable, it surprised me when I saw the room. We got all facilities that we need, such as hair dryer, sandals, and towel. In addition, we were pleased that both side in our twin bed have electric station. It is small thing, but it's quite essential for me, since we need our phone before and after sleep charging right?

Very nice hostel. ”

I live in Female dorm in 2/F, which is female only floor. I need to use the room card to access the 2/F, good for female safety. There are quite much washrooms and bathrooms in second floor. ( the hostel realize girls need more time in bathroom XD) In the room, each bunk bed have a curtain to keep your privacy. However, the socket of bunk bed are weak, not good enough to recharge the battery. The staff here are nice, and they can speak fluent English. I hope that they can remind the guests, keep quite and please close the door quietly at night , while they do check in. There is very terrible to wake by the noise with closing door at midnight.

Great experience at Kyoto”

We stayed here for two nights. We booked a private room (with double bunk bed), without toilet and shower room. But the toilet and shower room outside were right in front of our room. So eachtime my son had to take a pee, it was never a problem. The room, the toilet, the shower room, the powder room and the whole hotel was super clean. The public pantry was great. We can refill our water bottle for free. We can also use the facility on their pantry for free. The location was wonderful, only 1 minutes walk to nishiki market, 10 minutes walk to Gion district, and 15 minutes walk to Yasaka Shrine. Vending machines are everywhere. It took about 10 minutes walk to the nearest station though, but not to worries, because you will be busy window shopping along the way. There are a lot of restaurants and shops along the way to the station. The staff was helpful, and english spoken. They even have an indonesian staff. Thank you anindya for your hospitality. We will be back for sure :)
