We stayed at Tomato for three nights. The bedroom was basic. Futon a little thin but bedding and facilities are clean. Small common room and kitchen. Only problem was noise... they dont implement quiet hours and you could hear people blow drying their hair at midnigĥt. Had a group of Chinese tourist come in the second one point and two women were fighting on the second floor in the middle of the night and we could hear it on the first floor..... whatever is happening in the hallway all carried into the room too.

We stayed for 2 nights. There is one number of the staff that is really nice mas helpful. There is a full equiped kitchen, a common area, washing machine for 100jpy, hot shower. The room was spacious with tv and aircon, the only bad thing was that it smell a bit weird but I guess it was because the windows were closed most of the time. Overall we had a great stay and recommend it for your stay in Kyoto. Location is within walking distance from Kyoto station where you can get buses and trains. It is also possible to store your bags before or after check out.

location, freedom and eacy to meet up domestic or international backpacker

This hostel is very cheap but nearby the Kyoto train and subway main station. The receptionist will not be in the front desk all the time. So must watch out the check-in & check-out time. But they're very friendly to help if they're capable to do so.

Hostel Style Living”

No curfew, friendly front desk

Hostel style of living, but I have stayed in better ones. Tomato was located slightly off from my prediction, and when you're dragging a 20kg luggage bag, the distance is slightly daunting, esp in winter. Front desk was kind enough to allow early check in, but there's no elevator to second floor. So it's a precarious lugging for me and a 20kg luggage bag up a flight of steep steps. (The steep steps were always daunting for me and my friend, so it requires some getting used to.) Room was clean, and we had to make our own bed and bedsheets. I had chosen shared bathroom so no face or bath towels were provided. Free Wi-Fi is available in room. Shared toilet and wash basin area was not provided with warm water, so be warned for this if you're coming in winter. But the shower room is completed with warm and cold water. Overall a pleasant stay, if you are coming in the warmer months.
