The beds are comfier than the standard Japanese type. The hostel is clean and quiet and well located in the Gion area, close to most of the major temples and the geisha area. The wifi works well, and there is a 7-Eleven 20 meters away where you can buy snacks and breakfast. The only problem is there are only 3...

The private rooms are about the cheapest in Kyoto, they have no windows, and they get all the noise from the dormitories as well as the stairs and the toilets... when a group of young people comes back in the middle of the night. Apart from that, the hostel has an excellent location, good equipment, good wifi, clean, the staff...

Good location for it is literally very near a subway stop. The rooms were clean as well as the shared bathrooms. The common areas were clean but unfortunately, coming from the cleanliness (and space) we noticed from the hostel in Nagoya, this paled in comparison. We were able to hang out in the common room even late at night. The...

The guy who was running the place during our stay was hopeless even by English standards, let alone Japanese. He was late opening up, so we called the phone number on the scribbled sign, and he still took ages to appear from wherever he had clearly been napping. We then had an argument - seriously! - about how many nights...

We stayed here after a miserable experience in Tokyo, so our opinion may be colored a bit by comparison, but the rooms were clean, the staff was polite a helpful, the location was perfect (just steps to Gion), and the other travelers we met while staying there were awesome, and helped us plan our Thailand trip. I suppose the one...

We stayed here for our Kyoto Trip last Apr 2010 during the Sakura Season. Here's a quick Pros and Cons of this Hostel. Pros: 1. GREAT LOCATION. Buses and subway are just a few minutes walk. 2. Staff personnel speaks perfect English, they're also very helpful 3. Friendly Environment. So easy to make friends here. Cons: 1. The Janet Jackson...

This was my first time staying in this type of accommodation. And this, is by far one of the best place I've stayed(right up there in the lines of 5 star hotels I've stayed). Now don't get me wrong, I'm 17 and I don't usually stay at 5 star hotels but there are things that helps this small hostel beats...

I know that some folks love this place and others hate it. Well, I tried to like it and after going to another hostel close by for less money, I'd not return here. The staff was rude, they also changed my reservations at the last minute from a room I wanted to something else. Also, our room (which was 8...

I booked online two weeks in advance - paid a deposit via credit card (in euros, weirdly) and got a confirmation e-mail. Five days before we were due to arrive in Kyoto, we received an e-mail saying our reservation had been canceled due to computer problems. As for the deposit money - after telling us to come by and pick...
