            Small and cramped, not enough bathroom facilities ”

            It's a hostel in what used to be a house, hence the spaces aren't ideally suited to the amount of people. It's small and cramped with not enough bathrooms. In saying that, it has everything you actually need. Just not as spacious as other places.

            Friendly staff, good wifi.

            We spent only a short amount of time there. The staff was friendly and helpful. The mixed dorm is on underground level so the room is very dark and quite damp. They are trying to solve it but you can feel it. The value is not the best I've seen in Kyoto.

            Facilities are acceptable for dorm stayers. Staff are indeed very helpful like everyone else commented. I think costs are a bit higher than most dorms that I have stayed at though.

            Very small Common space. Since you cant eat and drink at the room you have to do it in the common kitchen and small dining table( if someone else was cooking you had to practically wait. And there were like 10 places by the table if you wanted to sit really cramped. The room we had was really noisy. You could hear whenever anyone closed the entrance door downstairs, closed their own room-doors, whenever anyone took a shower, washed their hands or walked by in the corridor. Had to sleep with earplugs but it didnt always help.... Free coffe and Tea, Good location!

            The house is near the Kiyonmizu Temple and other sightseeing spot. The staff are warm and kind, facilities are available and convenient including refrigerator, microven and other. The room is clean and small, very warm though in winter. One thing is that some noise from aisle can be heard but still acceptable.

            The staff is very friendly! The shared bathrooms are very clean! They have shared refrigerator that you can put your food inside. It's about 10 minutes walk to keihan subway station and 15 minutes to gojo station. There are supermarkets nearby, which is awesome to buy some beers for night time :) the room is just enough for fit 3 people. They have storage to fit luggages. It can be loud at night time if there are more people staying, it was fine for us tho.

            Really nice place to stay. Traditional Japanese rooms. Fairly central and very close to Gion and Kiyomizu temple. They have rental bikes available which we used to explore the city. The staff were very helpful. The walls are thin so if you are a very light sleeper then ambient noise may be a problem. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay here. Reasonably priced and easy to get around.

I stayed in a Japanese style room with shared bath and toilet on the third floor; room was sufficient for 3 persons; a small heater was available; shared toilet and bath were clean and spacious; hair dryer and electric kettle was just outside the room, so it was convenient; hostel wasn't noisy and we rested well on the 2 nights we stayed there.

            Can be access from Gojozaka bus station, just walk around 5-7 min, but we must walk through residential area, 15-20 min walk to Kiyomizu-dera. Please make sure to check the location on google map when you come for the first time. Staff was kind, good place for backpackers. They don't have elevator so it's little hard to bring medium/ large luggage with you. Facilities are good enough but a bit old house feeling. Room exactly like the photo, don't expect too much, but overall still ok.

            Friendly staff, not in a good location, very noisy at night”

            If you're looking for a low budget place to live, this is the place. Otherwise that's it. Staff was friendly, had a nice conversation with them. The place was clean. However, those three points are the only pros I could say about this place. Wifi was cut off at some times, very slow. Location was not in a good place, it was not near a bus stop or subway. It is only near the Keihan train station (10 minute walk away). We had trouble getting around the sight seeing spots around Kyoto. Room was small, acceptable. Walls were thin, you can hear everything at night, people walking outside in the hallway, people in the other room. Our room was on the second floor, 2C, and when we opened the window we could hear everything going on in the living room downstairs (people talk until late at night, 1AM-2AM). Somehow 2 rooms away from the shower, we could still hear it turn on and off! I'm serious, if I didn't have ear plugs to help me sleep at night, I would've given it lower stars. Bottom line: If you're looking for a good sleep and a good location to live in, this is not the place to live.
