Affordable and homey”

The price is indeed quite good. Location is just next to some of the main attractions, although a bit far from the East side, but the neighborhood is quiet and authentic, they still clap the woods at night to remind about fire!! The house is an old traditional one, so it's quite interesting from the cultural point of view. Although that makes it noisy too. Shower and toilets are clean and with needs provided. Kitchen is full equipped. There is a small indoor courtyard, Japanese style. Common room is also Japanese style. Good to live the traditional ways, although the couches at the high table need a change, not very comfortable. Beds are comfy, with headlamp and plugs. The dorm room is a bit packed, but inside each bed the space is good. Staff was very friendly, as well as the owner! Umbrellas available to borrow and bikes for renting. A lot of tourist information about Kyoto with a useful map.

If you are an adventurous traveller who is only looking for a place to sleep, this is for you. The place is really clean and comfortable with bicycles renting service so you could explore the neighbourhood easily (especially biking all the way to Gion)! They have a cute Kyoto garden inside, which brings out the zen vibe and I think it is super cool. You need to share the shower and toilets tho. Great for couples or solo travellers, but definitely not for family or anyone who brings children. The stairs are super steep and narrow. Rooms are not sound-proof too.

In this hostel, I made a lot of friends. All the staff can speck English and all of them are so NICE! Also, there is cooking facilities, that's well for the meal arrangement. Japanese living style hostel, very clean. Close to Nijo castle and Kyoto Imperial palace, I can walk to these two spots. Around the environment it is so quiet so you can have a nice sleep. Low price for high value. Recommend to all the people who want or have planned to visit Kyoto!

The girls on the desk were fantastic, they will give you tips and recommendations to explore the city.

Single Bed in Mixed Dormitory Room
Stayed 2 nights in April 2018

Small. Quaint. A bit shabby. ”

Though my trip to Kyoto started off bad on account of walking for ages under the rain to this hostel, my experience was generally okay. My biggest concerns with it was how tiny it was. Once you walk through the door, it is basically a narrow, one-person lane to the room which is past the kitchen. Therefore, if anyone is in the kitchen part of the hall, you are constantly waiting or having to move out of the way. The rooms are small as well. The bed situations somehow work well in such a small space; they are spacious, but the room is only big enough to enter and exit your bunk. Also, there is a problem with keeping in heat. Though beautiful, all of the wood styled doors and furniture let all of the wind past and are actually really noisy. I had the worst sleep of my stay in japan so far there because of how noisy everything is. The floors, beds, and doors creak and the curtains pull away with a loud scratchy noise. Still though, if you are there during a warmer time, and just need the hostel to collapse in, then this place is great.

The location is great, with short walk to 3 supermarkets and bus stops for transport to all major attractions. If you wish, it is a ~15mins walk to Nishiki Market, and from there ~10mins walk to Gion. Facilities are basic and clean. Shower's water are strong and hot. Just a small point, would have been great (especially during winter) if there was a hot water dispenser (for drinking). Staff are friendly and helpful (esp the TW and Msian girls) :) Overall a great place to stay!

narrow, cold and a bit shabby”

The staff was very helpful in every regard, but that does not change the fact that the room was more on the smaller side, cold and a bit run down. The shower can only be reached through a small courtyard and the kitchen equipment is basic at best. The location is okayish, but there are definitely more vibrant areas in Kyoto with a tad better public traffic connections (20mins to JR Nijo, 10mins to subway, 5mins to a couple of buses). The WiFi worked great.
