Best Accommodations in Kyoto!”
The Millennials Kyoto is not just for millennials, but for every traveler who wants the best value for their money. The hostel is very centrally located, near Gion District and just beside shops and restaurants. The hotel is very spacious. It has a very huge lounge, which has a complete kitchen, free coffee and tea, different sofas to be cozy in, an eating area, a meeting room, and a space to work with computers. The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. They are very kind and efficient. They speak English very well. The pod has a bed which turns into a sofa. It is very big and can fit 2. The room below the bed can fit a large luggage! You can also place your stuff on the shelf provided. The pod also has a unique feature - it can wake you up (alarm) by turning on the lights and the bed turs into a sofa so that there will be no noise to disturb the neighbors. The bathrooms are located in each floor. So there are sufficient number of toilets and showers per floor. Though the shower area can be improved by providing some sort of a shelf or more space to hang clothes. Otherwise, the shampoo and body wash are so good and smells so good. One more plus point is that the hostel provides free beer from 530-630pm. For me the Millennials Kyoto is best hostel I have stayed at.

Favourite hotel of my entire trip”
Before the trip, I had high hopes after looking at the videos and reviews. The Millennials Kyoto did not disappoint. I have stayed at many other capsule chains (First Cabin, Night hours etc) and I would rate the Millennials above those. Walking distance to the subway and bus stations, right at the shopping district, walking distance to Nishiki market (~5 mins) and Gion (~15 mins). Provided PJs, daily change of towels, hot shower and tub, bed is comfortable and big. The room lights and reclining bed is controlled by the ipod given. Ample storage underneath the bed, can probably store two big luggages. Love the hostel decor and concept. There's a big open area/kitchen for you to chill and have your meals. Definitely recommending Millennials Kyoto to everyone and I will definitely stay here for my next trip!!
Thank you for staying with us! We are very happy that you liked our hotel and its facility. When you visit Kyoto again,we'd like to see you!
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in”
I have nothing but good things to say about The Millennials Kyoto. Staying here definitely made my trip a million times better, and I can't rave enough about how comfortable and large the beds were. I've never stayed at a hostel with a bed this large and I was able to get a good night's sleep every night. The common area was also very spacious and organized in a way that you can meet other people or have some time alone to yourself and your work which was wonderful. Location-wise, I couldn't have asked for better; it was extremely easy to get to all the main tourist attractions and because the hostel itself is in such a good location, there are many things to do, eat, and explore nearby as well. Definitely worth every penny you spend, and I will be returning here the next time I'm in Kyoto. If you're on the fence about booking a room here, please don't hesitate and go for it! A hostel as nice and pristine as this one is hard to come by.
Thank you very much for choosing our hotel and writing a review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel, its facilities, and its location. We will keep improving our survice. If you have a chance to visit Kyoto next time, we hope to see you again!
Great place, would stay again!”
What a great stay I had at the Millennials! I stayed four nights and there was a problem with the ipod control of the pod, so I had to change pod, had a few teething problems with the new control, but the reception staff were very helpful and always were on hand to help with info. on the best way to get to places too! Friendly staff, lovely place and they have to be the most comfortable duvet and pillow that I have ever had at any hotel/hostel. I loved the design of the place, nice big window out to the world! Comfortable sofas and chairs. O.k., there was only bread for breakfast, but this is a continental breakfast, this is what you get if you go to Europe, so if you don't like it maybe Europe would not be your place of choice for holidays! However, the Millennials would be my first choice of place to stay if visiting Kyoto again!
Thank you very much for staying us and your various review! First of all, we have to apologize for your inconvenience of the ipod. We will to make an effort to improve it futhermore! However, we are glad to know that you felt comfortable at pod, also you loved the design of our hotel! Thank you again, We really hope to see you again when your next travel to Kyoto!! Best regards, The Millennials Kyoto
great experience in capsule!”
It was our first time staying in a capsule hotel and boy it exceeded our expectations! We chose the mixed gender level and the place was immaculate and they provided all that we needed for a night stay. Location is very, very accessible as it was right in the heart of Gion. I requested for our capsules to be side by side but we got an even better deal as we got two capsules that were opposite each other so it was pretty private. Bed was absolutely comfortable and definitely fun with the savvy technology in place. The lounge is a lovely space where you get to meet other people from all walks of life. There is a well equipped kitchen where you can make yourself a hot coffee or chocolate with alot of seating space. They also provided simple breakfast like danish rolls and croissants. Will definitely stay in The Millennials again if we ever visit Kyoto again!
Thank you very much for staying with us and writing a review! Your rate and comments are highly appreciated.We hope that you had a great experience ,but there are so many plece to visit here in Kyoto.Please come back again:) We all looking forward to seeing you again! Best Regards,The Millennials Kyoto
Very good experience in a high standard capsule hotel”
Very nice and clean, there are not a lot of capsule hotel allowed male and female stayed at the same capsule area, we would like to experience capsule hotel and we found Millennials Kyoto. The location is great and you got shops like loft, uliqlo nearby, there are some nice restaurants. You will get an ipod to control the setting of the room, access the hotel, the bed and the light, which is amazing! You can get free beer at certain time and what else can be better than this!
Thank you very much for staying with us and leaving such a nice your review which made us happy :) We are glad to hear that you had a very good experience at our hotel!! Also good for us to know you enjoyed our room and free beer. If you have a chance to come back to kyoto, we are looking forward to seeing you again! Thank you :) Best regards, The Millennials kyoto
Awesome 1st time capsule hotel experience in great location!!”
The Millennials Kyoto is our 1st capsule hotel we stayed at in Japan and had a positive experience. The capsule rooms are spacious enough and the whole facility is sparkling clean. Our large luggage can fit in the storage space under the bed completely fine when it's opened. We did not have time to enjoy the lounge area but it looked very nice and quiet at night. Location is superb since it's near many popular attractions.
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! Your comments are highly appreciated. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities. We will do our best to improve the quality of our survice. If you have a chance to cme back Kyoto next time, we hope to see you again in thefuture!
Hipster haven in heart of Kyoto ”
The Millennials feels like part hipster bar, part coworking space, and part futuristic hotel. Located right in the main downtown of Kyoto, you can walk to everything. The design is great with an airy, well-lit common room with great views. I loved relaxing there during the free happy hour every night. The rooms are compact but functional with an iPhone-controlled bed that adjusts it from bed to couch and a pull-out space for a suitcase underneath. Bathrooms are surprisingly spacious and clean. However, if you’re claustrophobic at all, I would not recommend this hotel.
Thank you very much for staying with us and writing such a lovely review! We are so glad to know you had a good experience and your review made us hearwarming:) If you have a chance to come back to Kyoto, we are always welcome to have you here. Best Regards, The Millennials Kyoto
Top Notch Hostel ”
Fantastic staff, great location on the main road in the heart of Kyoto, unparalleled design both shared spaces & the cool iPod controlled sleeping pods with plenty of room & storage underneath a reclining bed! Shower + toilets are spotless. toiletries, PJs, towels and slippers all provided free. Free coffees machine, free beer in the evening and included simple breakfast. I have never stayed in place like The Millennials in all the 48 countries I've been to. It will remain as my accommodation highlight on my first ever trip to Japan. Hopefully I will stay again next time I visit Japan. I highly recommend this place.
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! We hope you had a good time here. If you have opportunity to visit Kyoto,we'd like to see you again.
Comfortable Stay and Good Location”
Located just few hundred meters from the Kawaramachi Sanjo or Shijo bus stop, and subway is within walking distance, allowing us to explore different places of Kyoto easily. Surrounded by shops and restaurants and there is a shopping street just right behind the main street. Towels and pyjamas are provided daily and can be collected on the counter floor. They provided us an ipod and that allow to control bed into sofa or bed position and lights, it was quite amazed at first and felt annoyed after found out the battery drained pretty fast and requires to charge frequently. I did not charge the battery but bring it along while I exploring Kyoto as the key and access card are attached to the device. Toilet and shower room are separated, its quite clean and not crowded, compare to the other capsule that I stayed in Osaka this hostel is way much better. But the luggage storage right beneath the bed unable to fit large size luggage, my 25-inch luggage merely able squeeze it in. No regret.
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! We are happy of your lovely comment:) If you have oppotunity to visit Kyoto again,we hope to see you again!
Nice, sparkling clean and quiet!!!”
I booked a female capsule for me staying in Kyoto. It located in Kawaramachi Sanjo 河原町三条, which is one of the urban area of Kyoto city. Around 5 minutes walk to the nearest metro station, and there is bus that goes to 祇園. The bus also runs to different tourists attractions. The capsule itself also have enough privacy to the customer, and have lots of space to sit, sleep and keep the luggage with you at the same place. You can also control your bed, lights with the iPod they provide, and it also has an alarm for the light and bed which make sure you are awake. Great stay!! Definitely gonna stay here again when returned to kyoto.

Best hostel, worth every penny”
Perfect location, its near to few train stations with different lines and near to bus stations that connect to sight seeing spots, all within 5 mins walking distance. It felt like a mini room to me, cleanliness is top notch. Free beer in the evening at common area makes it easy to meet other travelers. Female only floor is quiet and I have no problem in sleeping although I’m a light sleeper. It’s my first time travelling solo and staying in a hostel, The Millennials just made a great memory for me! Definitely will stay here again if I visit Kyoto again.
Dear Guest, Thank you for staying and posting great review!! We are looking forward to meeting you again.
Beyond my expectations! The staff were great, facilities were extremely modern & clean!”
I loved the approach the Millennials take on the luxury "capsule" hotel. Everything is extremely high-tech and modern. While minimalistic, it doesn't cut corners on comfort and quality (e.g. high quality mattress, great shared facilities, cleanliness). I loved their common area, which was really inviting and conducive for guests to mingle if they so choose. The free coffee, cappuccino, and hot chocolate from their machine was terrific. And if you're in the common area around 5:30, free beer! The staff were also very friendly and speak English. I booked the hotel because the price is right, but it became a highlight of my trip. It's a great option for travelers looking for great bang for buck, or would like to try a kind of minimalist/capsule hotel without sacrificing privacy and going the full capsule and shared dorm route.
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities. There are countless places to explore in Kyoto, so if you have opportunities to visit here again, we hope to see you;) Thank you very much! The Millennials Kyoto
The staff here is consistently helpful. My reservation was somehow messed up and was not received properly. The staff at The Millennials still took care of me. They gave me the room that I had reserved and were quite friendly and professional at all times. I travel to Kyoto quite often, and I will definitely stay here the next time I am in that part of the city.
Sorry for the late reply! Thank you so much for your nice comment on us. Your words are so rewarding, and it will motivate us to offer the better service. We look forward to seeing you soon.
The millennials was one of the best hotels I stayed at during my time in japan. The staff were friendly and really helpful and had a really good understanding of English. The capsules were spacious, cosy and modern; I stayed in a capsule with a projector which was straight forward and easy to use along with the bed and light controls. Luggage space underneath the bed was more than enough for a large suitcase if you lay it open and a large duffel bag too. Showers and toilets were always clean. Overall my stay at the millennials was really comfortable
Thank you for staying with us. We really appriciate your valuable review, also we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel!! Your words to our staff are the best pleasure. We will keep to do the best our service to all our customers! Please visit us if you have a chance to come to Kyoto again! Thank you very much :) Best Regards, The Millennials Kyoto
The millennials was one of the nicer hostels we've ever stayed at. Super amazing facilities, comfortable beds, awesome lobby and reception area (with free happy hour beer!), super friendly staff and a killer location. Would absolutely recommend anyone thinking of visiting Kyoto to stay here!
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! We are glad to hear that you liked our hotel and its facilities. Hope to see you again here;) Thank you very much! The Millennials Kyoto
Amazing location, comfortable and high tech living space, AMAZING lounge and happy hour”
So easy to meet fellow travelers during happy hour with free beer! Amazing location in Kyoto , right where everything is happening. So close to Nishiki Market, other restaurants, and shops. The beds were so comfortable, clean, and high tech. Showers and washrooms were clean. Will 100% come back to The Millennials any time I'm traveling in Japan!
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! Your comments are highly appreciated. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities.

Superb location, great facilities, but still a youth hostel... ”
Stayed for three nights as a first-time visitor to Kyoto (and first time staying in a hostel!). The location was amazing, right on Kawaramachi, and close to all the shops I wanted to hit and within walking distance to many great restaurants. The concept is great, and the space is well-thought-out and designed. The pod itself was more comfortable than it looked, and the sliding luggage compartment was the highlight. The bed was on the soft side, which is okay, and the bed/sofa concept really maximizes the tiny space. I felt the iPod controller was redundant though, since the bed/light could be easily controlled by physical buttons. And the iPod doesn't replace any of the keys/key cards either, so why bother? Even though there are strict rules re: noise, it was not enforced. Still got a bit noisy at night, especially since the pod curtains offer no noise insulation.
Thank you for staying with us and taking time to share your exoeriments at here. We are very happy to hear that you liked your hotel and also enjoyed Kyoto. Our hotel locate near Kawaramachi, so gests can enjoyed around the city. If you have chance to come to Kyoto, we are looking forward to meeting you again in Kyoto. However, we are so sorry about the noise. We will try to improve about it. Once again, thank you for chooing our hotel to stay. Best Regards, The Millennials Kyoto
Clean, friendly staff, excellent location.”
Pro’s - exceptionally clean, great staff, excellent location in a busy part of Kyoto. Con’s - this isn’t my type of place to stay at all. Although The Millennials was exceptional in regards to the above pro’s, I found it full of younger people that focused more on talking about work and wanting to eat avocado. It would suit anyone wanting a backpacking holiday. Not really for those that want rest and some peace and quiet away from younger travellers.
Thank you for staying with us at the Millennials Kyoto! Fast of all, we appreciate for taking time to write your valuable review! You liked our facilities, staff and the location! However, we are a little sorry to hear that our hotel did not fit you a bit. We will consider your valuable feedback and we will provide new services to our customers. We hope to see you again if you have a chance to come to Kyoto! Thank you again. Best Regards The Millennials Kyoto
Great location but i prefer another pod hotel”
Pro: Very good location, right in the central Kyoto. Staff speaks good English and is very helpful and friendly. You can lock your pod before you go out. Good shampoo/conditioner/body wash provided. This is something which leaves an impression. Lol. Con: Pod is very very small! Not recommended to people who has phobia to small space. And it is inconvenient to take/pack your stuff. So its either you block people's way when you are taking your stuff or people will block your way when they are taking their stuff. Not ideal. Toilet is small and minimum items are provided (unlike the other pod hotel i have stayed in). I think the cleanliness also need to be improved (I am not sure it is the user or the hotel problem). The other pod hotel actually provided cleaning tools for users to clean after themselves but I don't find it here. Overall, Millennials is ok but i prefer the other pod hotel. I feel more comfortable there and price is about the same.
Hi Hazel, Thank you so much for staying with us and sharing your thoughts about our hotel. Just to clarify, although we are not sure which "pod hotel" you are refering to, we consider our Pods to be quite bigger than usual capsule hotels. For the luggage storage issue, your comment make point that it does block people's way when guests organize their belongings - we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Regarding the comments about the cleanliness of the hotel, we do have cleaning everyday (twice a day for the washrooms) and we try our best to make sure that everything is properly polished. However, as you commented, we will see what we could to improve the situation. Thank you again for your valuable comment. Best, The Millennials Kyoto
