    A real feel of Kyoto”
    the staff was ultra helpful and the room was a real feel of a Japanese setting
    The staff was beyond helpful as she provided the best "to do and see" in kyoto. Was assisting us and even provided maps. All we need was attended to. I was really excited and happy to stay in this century-old hotel. We were advised that since its a ryokan, noise from outside the room can be heard but we never experienced this. Sleep was very sound.

    Typical japanese style hostel”
    Tidy, Cozy and Friendly staff
    The hostel is based small Japanese houses over a hundred years old and visitors can have a taste of Japanese typical sleeping style. A Location is awesome, close to bus station, Rooms are limited so it suits people who prefer not to noisy. The staff might have limited English but they are willing to express with their best effort and provide you a lot of information for traveling inside Kyoto city.

    Have to walk 15 mins to the hostel, but there are bus stops everywhere to access main spots of kyoto. Super nice staff:) However, one big insect was found on bed one night. Also, it's easy to hear the neigbour's sound especially if they came back late or go out early.

    I will definitely stay in here for the next time.”
    Kind and sweet staffs. Location is great, 3 bus stops from Kyoto station. Since it's an 100 years old wooden house, there would be some creak sound while someone is walking or moving. There are several traditional public baths near around, it's free to rent a bike from the Hostel, and you could also borrow the little basket including shampoo, conditioner and body wash in it. And it's also free. My favorite in the hostel is the living room, there is a kotatsu there. It's a japanese tale with heater attached to the underside. Feels really really warm in the cold days.

    Location
    We don't advise to reserve Deluxe room with Porch. The room is located on the first floor, separating a wall from a reception. It is very noisy, even after the 10 pm. We already slept when some people looked for someone on a reception for some reason in our room. To use a toilet, it is necessary to go outside because the toilet is not in the house, it's outdoors, in a courtyard. It's very cold and inconvenient to use in the winter, especially at night. The light near a toilet isn't turned off at night and shines directly in room windows, without allowing to fall asleep. You can hear at night all sounds when people use a toilet. We wouldn't want to come back.

    Great Value, Great for buses.”
    Beautiful, old traditional japanese townhouse. Fully stocked shower, Reading lamp and privacy curtains.
    The free bus Navi map was the most useful thing and the bus day pass is great value. I recommend the Golden Pavillion, the Wagashi workshop and Mt. Inari shrine in Kyoto. Dotonbori st. in Osaka was a good place to buy souveneirs and has a Takoyaki workshop and Osaka aquarium is a must see. My biggest complaint is just that the kitchen didnt seem to contain a knife. Other than that the place was lovely, cheap, clean, well staffed and well provisioned.

    Cozy and charming”
    Friendly staff, clean, nice location
    Because of last minute arrangements on one of the busiest times of the year in Kyoto, we ended up booking this place because there really wasn't anything else. The expectations therefore where low and we knew we were getting a very small room. Regardless of all that, this small traditional building had a very welcoming charm that made our stay very pleasant. It made us really feel the traditional allure of Kyoto. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed the convenience of the location, near several major landmarks and temples. The room was tiny, which they clearly advertise so there was no surprise there. However, we are both around 1.80m tall and we did not feel uncomfortable with the space at all. More than anything the amount of space felt efficient. Also, even though it's an old style building with really thin doors and walls, it was incredibly quiet and peaceful even though the place was fully booked. We are thankful that they politely ask all guests mind this feature and were happy to comply with this. They do not have private in room bathrooms to my knowledge, only community ones, please be aware of this. They have several of these single private bathrooms and we personally did not find this to be inconvenient at all. There wasn't an issue even as the place was fully booked. These facilities were clean and well maintained. Lastly, as healthy eaters who are mostly vegetarian, we were extra delighted that they have an all you can eat restaurant on the same street with seasonal organic vegetables (and some fish/chicken for non vegetarians from organic farms). Really, for great location and charm, it was a great value for the price. We were happy to have stayed here.

    Traditional house but facilities inadequate for the amount of guests they cram in.”
    The staff are very friendly and the hostel very clean and quaint. However, when the guesthouse is at it's full capacity, the one shower between a a vey crammed 6 bed dorm and three twin rooms is totally inadequate. There are two toilets and one wash basin outside in the back yard and getting down a very narrow staircase to reach them is quite dangerous. There is no proper kitchen. There are two other buildings next door belonging to this guesthouse so I don't know if the set up within these is the same.

    Tiny, tiny and tiny space!”
    Staff
    The hostel location is not that close or far from the Kyoto station. It's quite a walk but it's okay. The room size is fine but they jam, I think, 6-8 bunk beds in the room. I am 5'4" and about 50-55 lbs, I barely can "squeeze" between the two bunks, it is so very narrow. The top bunk is low enough that I can sit straight but I cannot stretch my short arms because they would hit the top bunk. What they should have done is removing one of the bunk to give more room for travelers to get the luggage in and out freely and not having to walk sideways into our bunk. The toilets are outside and it is quite inconvenient if you need to go in the middle of the night (not that I needed to go). The stairs are so steep and you have to be careful not to fall down and break your body parts. In all, the nice thing about this place is staff who are friendly and helpful.

    The hostel is a bit hard to locate (at the back of alley), not quite near the station (4 bus stops away from the station), need to get a bus (not JR line). There's a convinient store nearby, very near the aquarium. Very helpful and friendly staff. I had to leave Kyoto to Tokyo at 5am, the earlier bus starts at 6am, had to catch a taxi to the station but the staff was so helpful, she helped me to book taxi in advance and the taxi fare was only JPY 10000.
