Nice hostel but too crowded”
The only con of this hostel is my reserved shared room it's too crowded. But the hostel is cozy and clean, it's good enough if you not have very heavy belonging. The staffs able to speak English and helpful, no any major compromise on their services. Tumbs Up!
Thank you for your stay and this feedback. The dormitory room can be fully booked during April because of cherry blossom fever in Kyoto. We will try to keep a good environment in the dormitory even it is a high season with full of people in the hostel. Best regards, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
Cozy Hostel but a bit of walk”
This hostel was superb.. clean and comfortable.. there is a rooftop that you can use. Staffs were really nice and good at English. They have breakfast provided, there is yoshinoya nearby. The only flaw is it was 10-15mins walk from the station
Thank you for your stay and this review. We cannot change the location but we will work hard to cover the flaw with other good service we have. Hope to see you again. Best regards, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
Clean and comfortable! ”
Capsule and lavatory/shower area was clean and well-kept. Staff and reception were friendly and helpful as well! Rules were simple and easy to keep. Lockers were a little small and will not be able to for snything above a cabin-sized bag. Place was a short 10 minute walk to Toji Temple, and about 5 minutes away from Aeon Mall. Only downside is its a distance away from Karasuma Station, and the road to the nearer Toji station has no crosswalk, only an overhead bridge.
Thank you for your stay and this review. Hope you had a good time in Kyoto. Singapore is not far away! We are looking forward to seeing you again. Best, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
It’s an awesome hostel. They have a nice rooftop for lounging, a bar with good food and happy hour, most staff are nice, and they offer yummy breakfast for 500yen. The shower and wash area are clean and spaceous. The only few things that could be better in comparison to other hostels we’ve stayed at, the futons are not as comfy (although the comforters are so soft like pillows), and getting up on their metal ladder/steps can be cold & slippery. Overall, it’s in a great location and one of the nicest ones that are affordable.
Thank you for your stay and this awesome review. And regarding to the metal ladder in dormitory, we are also considering changing those to different style steps. Hope you had a good time in Kyoto. Best, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
Excellent and friendly staff who can speak English well. They can store luggage for you if you arrive early or just need a place to keep it. Common area is very lively and common TV has video game consoles and Netflix. Certain days they have nice activities scheduled on their calendar, so look at the calendar to see what's going on! Located very close to Kyoto Station and other local bus stations. Looking forward to booking again.
Hi Arturo, thank you for staying with us and leaving us such a great review! We are so glad to know that you enjoyed our common area as well as our events.

Great place to stay”
Just a walking distance to kyoto station, A+++++ also to this place because its very near to AEON mall. If its not Ms. Risa guided us to go there for cheaper food we wouldn't know. She & other staff are very helpful & friendly Makes us feel warm & home when we were there. Highly recommended to stay at this hostel. Rooms are clean & amenities are being replenished all the time. Love it, cheers!

Not a single complaint”
Excellent location close to Kyoto Station, restaurants and convenience stores and functional facilities with the lockers outside of the sleeping quarter. Super friendly staff, one girl even spoke excellent spanish. Very helpful, super clean, great sleep because of soundproof capsules. Cool breakfast area and rooftop, for meeting new people; easy laundry machine. I even forgot to put away my iPad Pro and the cleaning staff had it safe and sound in the reception area with my name on it. I cannot say enough good things about Mosaic Hostel. Highly recommended, would stay here always.
Dear Simon Thank you for staying here with us and leaving sweet review! Happy to hear you have enjoyed your stay a lot, and dont leave your ipad anymore por favor ;) ! All staffs will always work hard to improve our hospitality to welcome you again in the nearly future !
staffs are very friendly. there is a mixed gender dorm where you can stay with your partner. you can leave your luggage earlier than the check-in time which is 3pm and beyond the check out time as long as it is same day. clean bed and bathroom. towel, toothbrush and slippers were provided. will definitely stay again here if i will go back to kyoto.
Dear Maejiecel Thank you for staying with us and leaving sweet review! Happy to hear you have enjoyed your stay here and we look forward to welcome you again !
One of the best or even THE best hostel I have been during my 5 weeks ins Japan.
Thank you so much for staying with us and this fantastic comment. Hope you fully enjoyed your trip of 5 weeks in Japan. Kind regards, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
very noisy.... and disturbing”
Overall the place is good. HOWEVER, if you wish to have a quiet sleep mode, this place would probably be not a good choice for you. People making so much noise from day and night by coming in or out and talking / chit chatting... THATS ANNOYING!!!! Also, the light coming from outside makes you awake all the time. That's might not be a good idea for you if you like to have a good quality of sleep. I still have one more night to go...... God please help me!! :( :(
Thank you for your stay and this feedback. And we are very sorry about all the problems caused by the noise in the dormitory. We'll find a way to improve the environment in dormitory during the high season. Best regards, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
Fantastic, recommended ”
Location is good, but not perfect, still super close to Kyoto station, room was big but quiet and the capsule-like beds give you enough privacy, comfortable, one free towel, plugs, big lockers, great, toilets and showers next to it with everything that you need. They give free slippers, ear plugs and toothbrushes among other things, nice and comfy seating are, small but enough kitchen and very helpful staff. Book it with breakfast if you can, to me is not worth the 500 yen because is small but tasty, is set and they prepare it for you. Recommended.
Thank you for staying with us and leaving us a good review. We hope to see you again soon in the near future! Best Regards, Mosaic Hostel Kyoto
Straight forward, convenient, staff is great”
Pro Near to mall and the station, about 7mins walk Great facility with the price I paid for 2 nights MYR 276 Staff are helpful, allows early check in, and she speak very well. The capsule is great big space Equipped with pots and pans for light cooking and laundry service available for 300 YEn Cons Toilet is limited; Shower room is limited; Especially rush hour.
Thank you for staying with us and your feedback. We are happy to hear your overall satisfaction as well as some of the concerns. We have showers and toilets on each floor so all the guests are welcome to use the one on the other floors when its crowded. We will take your feedback into consideration in the future and hope to see you again!
Very clean beds and dorm”
This is one of the cleanest and best hostels we have stayed at in Japan so far. Kitchen has everything and you get free breakfast. Tea is free all day. The lounge is very cozy. Beds and dorm is clean and very quiet cause the doors don’t slam or make noises. Aeon mall is 3 min walk from hostel and train station is 10 min walk. Perfect.
Thank you for staying with us and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Please come back next time you are back in Kyoto, hope you have some chance to attend some of our events too :) Thank you again and see you next time!
AwesomeAmazing Budget Hostel”
Location Near Kyoto Station, Near Food Restaurant And Mall AEON, Staff Cleary Speak Englsih, All Room Locker Shower and Locker Very Very Very Clean and Tidy , Im Shocked for this hotel very cheap but looks like Hotel 4 Stars, Lobby so family and young life, when back to tokyo this hostel must be my destinantion for stay..
Dear Krisman Terima kasih sudah pernah menginap di sini dengan kami terus menulis review yang baik bgt! Senang skl dengar anda happy disini, kami menunngu anda kalau anda pengen kembalik ke kyoto lagi ya! terima kasih lagi, sampai jumpa lagi !
hostel location is near Kyoto station ”
Locker room is bad smelly because of shoes. Light in the capsule can’t be modulated. It is not very convenient to take a shower if there is not a bag to put your clothes and towel, umm maybe it would be more helpful if there are more hooks in the shower room. Staff is friendly. In a word, thank Mosaic for giving me a unforgettable experience in Kyoto from Heisei to Reiwa. See you!
Thank you for your stay and this comment. We have got many comments about setting more hooks or a basket in shower rooms and so we can definitely find a way to improve the situation. So happy to know that you had a good time in the hostel during the special moment of changing era in Japan. Hope to see you again soon. Best regards, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
Chic, clean and comfortable hostel!”
I love the hostel’s atmosphere so much especially on the 1st floor! It is so nice and good for take a great shot! And on the female dorm floor, where I stayed, is very peaceful. All important items as towel, slippers, brushes, shampoo and soup are also provided for free. Only about 8-10mins by walking from JR Kyoto station. Also a AEON mall very closed to the hostel. Nice! (But the bunk bed and pillow are a little bit not so comfy though)
Thank you for your stay and this review. We are so happy that you liked our common area. We always try to make the place comfy for everyone in the hostel. Hope you had a good time in Kyoto and also in Japan. See you in your next trip. Best, MOSAIC HOSTEL KYOTO
