Best value for money in Japan”

I was so impressed with this hostel. Though it is incredibly cheap, it is still very clean and comfortable. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. For my opinion, this place is best value for money in Japan. Thank you for the owner who is the Buddhist monk in Nara.

Pros : The only GH that has TV while my stay throughout Japan. The room is quite spacious for three people and you have cupboard to store your bag. As we are staying for one night the GH is totally worth it. Cons : You need to paid additional 200JPY for cleaning I guess. They didn't provide towel but you can rent it at GH.

Surprisingly Nice”

The place is relatively far from popular tourist spots but just 15-20mins to Kyoto Station, so that makes up for it. The look of the place from outside won’t tell you much but you’d feel the relaxing vibe almost immediately once you get inside. The staff are so nice, & the walls in their hallway are decorated with informative posters/pictures of Kyoto’s sights & festivals. The room is quite big for a couple so that’s a plus. ‘Will definitely go back.

This hotel is located near Kyoto station and easy to find. It's very convenient as starting point for your trip. Since it's near main station, the area around this hotel is well built, you can find what you need by just walking. The room is quite big, unfortunately the bed type is bunk bed, so if you travel with your beloved one, you may end up sleep by yourself :)

Slightly worn down. Location good as close to the train station. ”

PROS: - The location is quite good as you don’t have to take the taxi or bus after the arrival at Kyoto main station. (10 mins walk only) - It’s a good deal if you just need a bed. - Shower pressure was great. - Washing session only 100JPY. - Internet is fast. - Extension cable in the room. - Main light in the room can be dimmed. - Bed sheets are white and clean. CONS: - Check in first at 16:00 (u can store the luggage). - Two committed staff but the third staff member we had contact with had quite an attitude after asking him to also mention the city tax in their agoda description in a humble way AND that it will be first added AFTER total payment amount though it said clearly incl. fees and taxes on the receipt. 200JPY/pax/night. - Carpets everywhere except the bathrooms. - Instruction overload: From how to put on/remove your bedsheets and where to place them before check out... - For smoking they send u 400m away. 😂 - Could use some interior love. - Partly sleazy.
