Excellent & would recommend it to others travelling to Kyoto.”

1. We love everything about this hostel, we stayed family room with 2 bunk bed and private bathroom & toilet. 2. Free breakfast with about 6 different types of toast and providing fruit jam, honey, butter..etc, and they also provide hand-drip coffee , instant coffee, teabags, green tea powder also. 3. We love the cozy area for dining and share kitchen. Besides that, their public bath room and toilet also super clean and nice. 4. Close to subway Gojo station with 5 mins walking distance, and we also travel to kyoto attractions by bus and the bus stop nearyby the hostel also.

Excellent”

R. Star Hostel is close to Gojo subway station, which just took a 5-min walk. Their dorm room, toilet and bathroom are very clean. I loved that they have separated toilets and bathrooms specialized for girls. Besides, the bed was very comfortable and got a curtain for privacy. They also provided free breakfast which has three types of bread and coffee. Last but not least, their staffs were very nice!

Everything's good. ”

I've booked a room for 4 with shower inside. Staff good, facilities good. I reached Kyoto early in the morning, I originally just need them to keep my luggage for me and I will come back at 3 pm for the check-in process, but the staff just checked-in for me, so I get a good place to take a rest, so thankful for the convenience that I've been given. The nearest subway station is Gojo station, take the exit 2 and you will see a orange color Yoshinoya restaurant, keep go straight as the restaurant will be your right hand side, until you see a OC cafe ( I think is the second street) you turn right to the street and keeeep go straight again until you see a convenience shop (mini shop) on you left hand side, the hostel just opposite to the mini shop.

A nice place near Shopping area and restaurants”

Pros: - The place is clean. Staff regularly check the pantry, restrooms, and other places to make sure they are clean - walking distance to shopping area and Nishiki Market (15-20 mins walk) - 15-20 mins walk to Kyoto station, and less than 10 mins walk to Gojo station - Also nearby bus stops Cons: - Rooms are not soundproof. We can hear other rooms’ noise from our room. But after 11pm you’ll not hear noise anymore. - Shower takes long time to heat up. You’ll have to wait for 5 minutes unless you want to take a bath with a cold water Overall we love the place. We’ll love to stay again.

I had a pleasure to use private room (2 people) while traveling with my mother. Place is very clean, staff is friendly and speaks fluent English. Location is quite good (you can walk on foot to Kyoto st.). I can fully recommend this place, and would consider it when traveling Kyoto again. The place is suitable for everyone in my opinion.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend in their private 2-bed room. There's a sink in the room. Toilets & showers are shared but only few steps from the room and is very clean. The room is also clean and the bunk beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on. They offer simple breakfast of toast & jam/butter. One free filtered coffee is also available daily upon request. For someone who want to cook, a well-equipped kitchen is there. .5 mins walk from Gojo station, and 15 walk to Shijo where all the shops and restaurants are. Location wise is good and for the price and what they offer it is unbeatable. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend!
