    Awesome Place! ”
    This location is right between some of the best areas of Kyoto. If you don't mind walking, you can navigate your way through the neighborhood streets and reach the Geisha District, Kyoto Station, popular river hangout spot, food market, busy shopping streets, and probably more, all by foot. The staff are very polite and if definitely brings a homey feel. Showers could use some work but still clean. Overall, highly recommended.

    Stayed here for few nights as we visited Kyoto. We stayed in 8 bunk bed room just nice for my family. Place is near to few subway stations. The bath and toilet is separated but generally clean (also depends on the cleanliness of the occupants). When we were there it wasn't high season so things were pretty ok. There are few Japanese eating places recommend by the Guesthouse located few hundreds meters away also serve decent meal at very affordable price. You can also rent bicycle there to ride to almost all of Kyoto must visit places.

    The front desk is closed between 12:00 and 16:00, between these times you cannot check in or store your luggage. This is extremely impractical if you arrive in Kyoto during these times. We had to carry our luggage around with us all afternoon which made it difficult to explore Kyoto. Email communication could also be improved, we sent the hostel a message and did not get a response. Apart from this it is in a great location. Clean and comfortable accommodation. Good facilities with a lovely garden area.

Spacious for a drom style. Super clean and caring receptionist. Fast responds. I will definitely recommend this guesthouse to young travelers especially backpackers.

    Great staff, great location (10 minute walk to trains, great restaurants in the local area, in either direction from the hotel), a very comfortable stay. Have to look after yourself when there but that's not really a criticism, just the rules of the place. Thank you guys. We were there for a few days, staying here in Kyoto made it a really good stay.

    If you are ok with a budget guest house, this place is great! Excellent location and very helpful friendly staff. Everyone who stayed here was very sweet and nice too. We were in the family room on the top floor with our baby. It was a spacious room, away from the rest of the house with a balcony. We were close to a toilet and sink. Though we had to go down 3 flights of very steep stairs to go to the showers and to go out. AS many people were using the facilities, they weren't always clean and things like the soap would run out but it's to be expected in this kind of place. We felt like it was a great value for our money and extended our stay one night.

    Tons of rules ”
    1st Be ready to receive a lot of emails from staff request you to check in + a lot of reminder for late check in charges , you will be charge min 2000 yen and more if your check in time is late. You have to make your bed yourself , and don't check out early , as per my case i was requested to remove my bedsheet and bring it to "lobby" when i check out . Basically dont cook there cause you are required to pay for garbage fee. Is an old building and be ready to see rat running in the room .

    If you want to stay in real Japanese house.”
    I feel satisfied with the hotel location, pretty near from the Kiyomizu-Gojō Station and bus stops, near shopping malls like Takashimaya and Daimaru and Nishiki Market, you can reach the places by walk. Toilets and shower room are clean enough. The only thing I feel displeased is the room key. The room doesn't have key, only use a small padlock. And one of the nights, our room door handle suddenly broken. We couldn't open the door from inside the room, so we had to call somebody's help, since the staff were already gone on 11 PM, finally the other guest helped us to open the door. This place will be my last option to stay whenever I visit Kyoto next time.

    I think it's better if you come to stay as solo or group in 2-3 people but it's not suit to family (children and old people) because the stair is quit steep and I think there are narrow rooms and you have to move the table before you sleep it's not comfortable and There are narrow one living room it's hard to have meals with other guests. But This guest house is very clean and near to convinient store and if you like walking you can walk to kiyomizu dera, Gion and Ponto-cho.

    Horrible unaccommodating staff, thin walls, found a beetle...don't come here.”
    This place is too rigid & has many unforeseen rules they force you to abide you. A couple days prior to check in, I didn’t have data to access my info, I was unaware that there was an expensive upfront, cash only penalty fees upon late check in after 9PM. Even a minute late & they'll penalize you! The check in guy was rude, & he just kept validating himself that he sent me many msgs. What is the point if a foreign guest cannot access the internet to respond & communicate? Also, there's many mosquitos at the front yard area, where the check in desk is (in the open). The guy makes you stand there amidst all the mosquitos just to explain the rules that were already in the room. You get no help with baggage and you prepare your own bedding. The other closets are locked, so you don’t have a lot of space for belongings. None of the beddings were comfortable or clean. There was a charge for washing clothes, no dryer. They charge penalty fees if they find more then 2KG of garbage in your room.

    The place is very noisy, people have no respect of others and there's no staff around to tell people to be quiet. There's only one shared bathroom on the floor for about 20 people. You have to wait for a very long time to use the toilet. The reception is closed from 11 am to 4 pm. Check in is at 4 pm and check out at 10 am. We wanted to have a real Japanese experience but this place is not worth it. I don't recommend it.

    Inconvenient”
    This guest house has very odd rules that may inconvenince your stay. The office is closed from 11-4. So if you arrive later than 11am, you have to figure out where to put your luggage. Check in is after 4 but before 8, so if you’re sightseeing, you have to come back to the hotel to check in. Overall it’s more of a headache than it should be. Wouldn’t recommend to stay here unless your schedule fits their strict requirements.

    The Guest House is ideal for young travelers who do not mind climbing up and down the narrow staircase and sharing the common facilities. Decent and clean set up with the kitchen facilities made available. Staff members are friendly and helpful. With the convenience of 24 hours restaurants and supermarkets in the vicinity, the location is ideal for those, who are not looking for luxurious accommodation.

    Creaky house, only 1 shower shared in 1 block, unhelpful staff”
    We stayed here for 3 nights in a tatami room for 3 ppl which is on the 2nd floor. Really inconvenient to carry our luggage. No explanation or instructions on how to assemble the tatami beds. Walking around the house is creaky. Shower is shared but so many people share only 1 shower in one block. Theres another shower in the other block which required u go out in the cold. We asked a staff to assist us to book a table for us in a restaurant (cause Japanese only) but she said no so I thought that was rather unhelpful. Luckily the restaurant replied to our Facebook message. The only time they were helpful was during checkout (when reminding that we need to vacate at 10am). Lol. Anyway, there are more guest houses nearer to the subway, and requires less walking. This one is a bit far.
