Best capsule hostel! ”

Went to 4 different capsule hostels on my trip in Japan and i think this hostel is the best so far. The staffs are very friendly, the building are nicely designed, it has a very relaxing and calm atmosphere. Lounge area are especially great, it has books about kyoto, guitar, tv and many other things. One of the downside would be a lack of locker to store a bigger valuable item like laptops. Capsule bed are comfy and clean. Locations are very good! Only 15 mins walk to the nearest subway station and the place is close to the beautiful river. Definitely worth the money!

Perfect getaway! Clean, walking distance to JR Kyoto, Close to fushimi inari and Gion”

Very clean hostel, very nice design. It is located a little off center (which is brilliant for resting), but you can easily walk to JR station (10-15min) and the next subway station (<5min) from which you’re quickly at fushimi inari or Arashiyama. Higashiyama and Gion are in walking distance. Staff is competent and nice, the facilities have everything you need: amenities, enough toilets and showers and a common area with WiFi and a tv. I’d gladly come again to this great retreat!

Such wholesomeness”

The passage coming into the reception had a small museum for some reason which I find rather quaint and amusing, but got my attention. The bedroom itself quite calming with its low lit light and their staff were great with communicating. Their breakfast set is quite cheap and delicious, of which I would highly recommend given that the location of the hotel is a bit of a walk from the famous attraction (I didn't mind the walk one bit and rather enjoyed it). Every corner I walk has its own lil surprise like Japanese antiquities and/or small shrine. Nice stay indeed.

Bad Attitude from the male staff, unpolite manner and bad communication!!! Very unacceptable!! 😡🤬”

The worst ever experience from my 1st time travel to Japan and 1st time as Solo Traveller!! The male staff very unpolite and communicate badly, he should learn how to be more polite and nicer when communicate with foreigner, give good guidance to foreigner that can not speak Japanese (because his English is very bad, unclear pronounciation). Not recommended to anyone if the staff still shown that kind of bad attitude.
