      I liked the location and the size and cleanliness of the room.

    • Single

      Great location with really friendly staff. It is above a sake bar which is also owned by the hostel so you can try lots of sake and they definitely know what they are talking about. Beds are comfortable and rooms are nice.

      Only 2 showers for the whole hostel which meant waiting a bit (although not that long) each morning. The hostel is next to a private subway which isnt easy to find from kyoto station, but thats more a quirk of japan subways.

      Comfortable and clean. Good location: by the river, next to Gion, there are bus station and subway nearby. Very helpful staff, speak good English,very nice and friendly!

      The 4-beds-room for female is quite small.

      The location is perfect

      Sometimes other guest bring wet clothes to the room, which make the room smells bad.

      I enjoyed the easy access from a major hub of Kyoto plus once checked in to the hostel I could enter the area that contained the rooms at any hour without troubling the hotel staff but that isn't to say it was unsafe because the entrance is protected by a locked door that is opened with a password. So it is convenient in somany ways.

      If you dislike the no frills approach of hostels then I imagine that this one would also disappoint you but if you know what to expect then I imagine most everyone would be extremely satisfied staying here

      Muji style building with a perfect location, very nice and helpful stuff, sake bar is also their special service, a wonderful experience, Thank you!

      Good points are the excellent location and the price. The hostel is new (it was opened in july 2012) so facilities are all brand new and clean.

      Rooms (at least our room) are tiny and with a tiny window that was like a basement. The hostel has no common room to have a rest and stay a while, just a small room in the 3rd floor with a fridge and a table. There is a sake bar in the 1st floor that it is used as the living room. Showers are on the 3rd floor, so if you are on the 2nd floor you need to go upstairs to take a shower. In the second floor there was not even a basin to brush your teeth. To get to the rooms there is a tiny stair quite difficult to climb with the suitcase. They did not send me an email of confirmation for my reservation, so i had to write to them again in order to know if the reservation was ok and to get the indications of how to get to the hostel ( the web was not working yet). The hostel was correct, but i would not recommed the place to a friend.

      Staff were very helpful with a rather late check in due to a delayed flight. Remember to inform them of a late check in if you plan to check in after 10 pm. Cleanliness and location were excellent! All the staff were friendly, warm, and welcoming. Great value.
