    beyond my expectation... super clean and tidy. the room is not large be with really reasonable design, i can open my big suitcase easily and i think it is spacious enough for my own. air conditioning, toilet, bathroom, hangers, hair dryer, usb charging ports... everything you need is equipped. a few minutes walk to underground stations, but the location is central and close to Gion area, so it is very suitable for walking and i did walk a lot. i think i will still choose here if i come to kyoto again

    Managed to grab a night (dorm bed) on this 'hot selling' Hostel. You will have to book way in advance (months) in order to book on this hostel. Arrived the hostel, well design & am amaze how the Japanese maximize the space of the building. Hostel is near to Sanjo shopping district. Located at one of the quiet alley, no worries if you walk back alone to hostel at night as Japan is considered as one of the safest country on the planet. There is bar located at the basement level, cold beer is served with discounted price for tenant. Bunk bed is comfortable and travelers get to share the toilets and bathrooms at basement level. The facilities offered is tip top (imagine a Dysonhair dryer for travelers!) Simple breakfast is served in the morning but somehow delicious, enough to fill up your stomach before a day off to Kyoto City. I have no complain on this hostel. Will be back for sure during my return visit to Kyoto. Keep up the good job 'PIECE'

    The room and the bathroom are OK, the hostel is not noisy and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast is ok, but not a big one (bread and croissants for continental breakfast and rice for Japanese breakfast). So it's no a buffet one (milk not included but you can carry your food). The laundry service works really good. Hotel area is lovely with many shops and restaurants.

    New Renovate Hostel”

    We booked 4 rooms double room and 2 triple rooms for 3 nights. We arrived at Piece Hostel before the check-in time so we stored our luggage at the lobby and went to Nishiki Market to settle our lunch. We went back to the hostel for check-in and the staff was friendly and they can speak Mandarin. The check-in process was efficient. We were given a room card for everyone because after midnight the lobby door will lock and you will need the room card to access. The room is bigger than most of Japan hotels. Free wifi available at the whole building. But sometimes the line was slow. Shower and toilet were separate which is convenient. Water pressure is strong enough for me. They provide towels, slippers (you have to take our own on the elevator side), and you can have extra pillows on each floor! The hotel provides free breakfast not much selection which includes traditional Japanese dishes and pastries like the croissant, almost the same for 3 days. Coffee and tea making facilities ar

    Really great breakfast offering - enough to set you up for the whole day! Also thought the cafe/bar space downstairs was great. A fellow guest in my room kept cranking up the heater to over 25 degrees. The building is already nice and warm so it would be good if you could put a limit on this - to more like 22 :)

    Best. Hotel. Ever.”

    This is my second review of this hotel. It is a perfect hotel. If you can get a good deal on agoda and not pay more that $50, it will be the best hotel experience you have ever had. Staff and atmosphere make this place a pleasure to stay as a solo traveler. I preferred the private room, but the shared room is beautiful too. The top bunk in the female dorm is very cool with a nice staircase, not a ladder. I recommend the top bunk! The bathrooms and shower rooms are always clean. You never feel like you are not the first one in there... But I still enjoyed my 3 nights in my deluxe single. Beware that even though on agoda there are many different names and prices for the rooms, there are only 4 types of rooms.... No matter what they call them! The capsule, single bed (queen?), A twin bunk bed and a queen bunk with a single bed on top. All beds are nice and big. The capsule is the biggest and nicest I have ever seen!

    I have stayed at both Piece Hostel locations, they’re always fantastic. Sanjo is a great location 10 min walk from the subway, even closer to buses. Nishiki market is less than 10 min walk. The Hostel is clean, staff are kind and helpful, the rooftop patio is lovely. I’ve stayed in a 4 person room and a solo room, both were clean and had a great use of a small space. The beds were comfy too! Breakfast is a mix of western (toast, croissants, coffee) and Japanese (soups, boiled eggs, rice, tea). No complaints. I’ll stay again next time I’m in Kyoto.

    I love this place ! I keep coming back Great location friendly helpful staff and spotlessly clean. Comfy beds and the downstairs communal area and guest kitchen is of hotel standard. If your a smoker there is a pleasant outside terrace with plants where you can sit & smoke. In most hostels in Japan you can only smoke in tiny cell type windowless cubicles which I personally refer to as the punishment cubicles.
