great location
Its kinda hard to review this room, the location is great, you can walk to many attractions and its in a quiet and elegant neighborhood. It's also clean, shower was nice and there is a kitchen as well. The room we stayed (for 3 guests) was big (in japanese standard), but I think they make too many rooms out of the house, its possible to be staying in super small rooms. We stayed in traditional japanese style house before so we knew its totally not sound proof, but because they split the house into too many rooms I feel like you hear everything even clearer. As everybody might have mentioned, there is only one shower room so we always came back before dinner to shower, before everyone else does. Lastly, the owner, an old sir, speaks some English but another old lady who cleans doesnt, it's pretty hard to communicate. Also the owner is actually kinda cold. We stayed for 5 nights and I found it less and less pleasant with him due to some misunderstandings. In all, great location, no service you can ask for (no laundry either, and the owner is really quite old so you can't ask him to carry luggage for you or so. In the 5 days of stay, the bin in our room wasn't cleaned), sounds like I complain a lot but it's still a place I would recommend, since the traditional houses can be very expensive, the size and the location of this house is already of pretty good value.

Not for everyone.
Not far from a subway station.. but not easy to find.. any way thanks to Google maps.. The room r more than simple.. mattress and air con.. that's all.. very thin walls.. so everybody hear everybody and everything.. not that much privacy.. everything is to share with the other guests.. the old guy running the house is very kind but his strict rules r not fun, the worst is to be back before midnight, so if u r a party type person.. avoid this place.

Just Fine
They provided single room not attached bath room. My room for suitable for just single person. Wifi, AC was there. Not too great. But just temporary stay is fine.

Don't go unless you are backpacker and get a great price!
Supply of accommodations on the weekend was tight so I paid nearly $100/night. The walls are so thin, I could hear people in the other rooms rub their noses. If anyone else is staying there at the same time, don't be surprised to hear conversations until midnight and hair dryers at 6am. Unless you are made of tough stuff (and I lived in Kyoto for ten years), make sure you get at least two futons.
