Thank you so much for staying in our hostel and for giving your good review. Next year, we will hold the Olympics and always have a good sightseeing spot. So whenever you want, please come back and staying here again! Thank you Kyoto hostel ZEN Kenny
The staff are super nice who help us to lift luggages from first floor to third floor. The female dormitory bed is huge which could sleep two persons. Common area has cookware but if they could provide water and rice, it could be even better to save us time. Location is convenient near Jin Market!
We are glad that you were satisfied with our service! We will put your recommendation to mind, and try our best! Hope to see you again!
As Central As It Can Get”
This hostel is quaint, clean and has very friendly staff. It's a 4 mins walk to Nishiki Market and surrounded with food. Daimaru is just 10 mins away. Rental bikes are available and cheap. Beds are comfortable. The only thing is that it's not a very "social" hostel if that's what you are looking for.
Good location in centre kyoto”
Pro: new hostel, great location walkable to shijyo sanjyo nishiki market and metro/Keihan/city bus; has a bathtub if you want to have a soak; comfy beds with privacy screen; kitchen with cooking tools and seasoning; Con: my only complaint is no elevator and rooms on fourth floor, but hostel staff will help getting luggage up. The place is still new so im sure it will get better with time :)
Greatest Experience in Kyoto!”

Clean, comfortable with great staff”
I would really recommend staying here. With blackout curtains across your bed, there's plenty of privacy, the shower facilities are excellent, everywhere is very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. It's only a 25 minute walk from the castle and kiyomizu-dera as well.

Very clean and convenient location. ”
Nothing to complain about. Owner explain everything clearly. Location is convenient and the facilities are all very clean and well kept.
One of the best hostels I've ever been to”
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Didn't have to go outside the hostel to learn things about Japan. The staff are very keen to answer questions. The room is very clean and tidy. There's a luggage lock for security, and most of all, they offered a FREE smartphone rental that you can use for Google maps while traveling so you can save the battery of your personal phone. Everything is basically there. There's nothing else I could ask for.
Thank you so much for staying in our hostel and for giving us your good review. I hope to see you again soon. Thank you Kyoto hostel ZEN Kojima

Thank you so much for staying in our hostel and for giving us a good review. From the end of March, the cherry blossom will be beautiful so I hope you come back on those days and staying here again. Thank you Kyoto hostel ZEN Kojima
Handy phone très pratique”
malgré le faible espace dans la chambre et l'absence de torchon dans la sdb, chaque lit est équipé d'un handy phone avec la 4g qui permet de naviguer en file facilement et d'avoir accès à internet (intéressant pour ceux qui n'ont pas de pocket WiFi ou de sim japonnaise)
