For 1-2 days visit, i think this hostel is affordable for a comfortable sleep. I sleep in 8 bed dormitory room and still feel spacious. But they only have 1 toilet in every floor, and sometimes it looks a little bit dirty. Shower room only...More
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...More
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.
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....More
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...More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
