        I think you can get better value elsewhere.”

        Apart from the close proximity to Kyoto Station, I believe you can get better value from other capsules or hostels. The photos shown by the establishment were very well taken. They managed to make the space look much more spacious and elegant than what it is actually.

        This guest house really feels like home!!”

        I spent four days staying at this hostel. The rooms are clean, bed is comfortable. It has a very comfortable common room where travelers gather, there are also books/notes, you can draw anything you like or just simply write in your impressions. The most attractive spot is wall covered by Tanaka-san's grandmas paintings which makes it very artsy. But above all, this hostel is only 3 minutes away from Kyoto station by walking!! They have only 1 bathroom, but i think it is no big problem in you wake up earlier you dont have to bother yourself waiting for a shower. A really comfortable place to stay!

        Super great location, nice interior design, and comfy bed”

        Most of my experience is good but there are some down sides: 1) The staff is not always there so you cannot get in or drop ur heavy luguage in the early morning w/o some friendly guest let you in. 2) No air con style heater on the first floor, so it might be a little cold in the winter.

        Clean, new guesthouse very close to Kyoto Station”

        Very clean guesthouse in traditional Japanese style with shared bathroom and toilet. Place itself is tiny, but room size was spacious enough for two person with luggage. There is a terrace and washing machines on 3rd floor. Room is very simple, you sleep on the floor on futon, there is a built in wardrobe where you can keep your luggage and clothes and small table. Bathroom and toilets on ground floor. Guesthouse is in walking distance from Kyoto Station. I highly recommend this place, if you are looking for decent guesthouse close to Kyoto Station.

        We arrived in Kyoto earlier than expected. The host allowed us to drop our baggage in our room and he settled the process of check in. So we just went out and come back at night time again with everything ready. Highly recommended in the Kyoto Station Area which is very convenient. Few bus stops away from main tourist and shopping point. Walkable distance to the city downtown.

        Truly convenient location. Clean/ Neat / Small but spacious.”

        Less than 5 min walk from Kyoto station. Truly convenient! the place is quite newly-renovated. small but well-designed. We stayed one night in the private room for two with shared bathroom. It was really clean and spacious. However, if you travel during winter. It could be terrible. Toilets and bathrooms are located within the outdoor court. It was freezing. We need to finish everything within 10 min. T_T haha. Tanaka-san, the owner of the place, stays in the hostel as well. He is helpful and always try to check my feedback of the stay.
