    Good to enjoy theJapanese style house”

    The transportation is convenient. You can go to the train station or many tourist spots by bus. We stayed in the second floor. (needed to go downstairs for toilet and shower) The room was clean and warm. Guests needed to talk with a low voice. You can also go to the public bath house near the guest house (shampoo and shower gel available to borrow). It was the first experience for me haha. It was lucky that we met the owner at our first night. The owner was nice and recommended us to a good barbecue house for dinner. The Taiwanese helper was also friendly! :) All in all, a nice place for you to experience the old Japanese style house!

    I have been there 3 times already. Nice place where to stay if you want to feel the japanese atmosphere and meet new people. Clean guesthouse, lovely staff speaking English (which is not that easy in Japan) and always ready to help you. Not too far from the train station and from Kyoto center. I love that place, it made me fall in love for Kyoto!

    Better than my expectation”

    The location is 10 minutes walk away from nearby stations and that's okay for me. You could see lots of tips around and even free earplugs( which saved my other two nights because wood houses really cannot prevent any noise at night) so I'd say the host is quite considerate( and also speaks the best English among the locals I've met). Roommates are from Japan, Korea, France and Dutchland etc. It's a bit funny when everyone try to communicate with “poor” English. Anyway I'd recommend it to my friends if possible.

    Throughout my stay, I was alone in the female dorm so it's fine. I guess it would be a bit crowded if there is another girls in the room. In case if someone cares about security, there is NO lock for the room (and NO door to be precise. It's just a cloth.) But the kitchen is nice and the staff are really helpful!

    Stayed here for just a couple of nights and found it was in a great location for transportation and sights. It was run very well and everyone was so helpful. There was even a little sign outside showing which guests they were expecting/welcoming which was also a nice touch

    Cute place but very inconvenient position and service!”

    The guesthouse is cute, traditional and with lovely staff and very good internet! The rest was a bit of a tiring everything: there is only one shower for the whole guesthouse (perfectly working with space and warm water) and only one toilet outside in the garden (freezing to go out), so for everything you need to wait, even two hours if you miss to go to when somebody else leaves! Also the walls are made of paper and guest may be very noisy in the night and morning (our case). The worst is the position, right outside there is a bus stop but with Kyoto's traffic you take one hour and more to reach everywhere! Very far from everything by walking. I won't suggest this place for a short stay as you'll lose half the time with transportations and queuing for toilet and shower.

    Es gibt nur eine Toilette und eine Dusche für alle Bewohner. Der Aufenthaltsraum war nicht so ansprechend wie auf den Bildern, überall lagen Decken auf dem Boden, die gesamte Wand war voller DVDs in einem Regal. Von einem japanischem Flair konnte ich nichts spüren. Küche und Waschgelegenheit sind unmittelbar nebeneinander, auf einer Länge von ca.3,5m. Morgens habe ich mir die Haare gefönt, ein junger Mann hat sich direkt daneben die Zähne geputzt und wieder direkt daneben wurde gekocht. Der Garten ist ca. 1,5m2 groß., liegt auf dem Weg zum WC und war mit Wäsche verhängt. Gut, viel konnte man eh nicht sehen, nur eine Pflanze und Steine. Alles in allem war es für uns sehr enttäuschend. Wir hatten uns sehr darauf gefreut. Wir haben diese Unterkunft vorzeitig verlassen.
