Great location, 15 minute walk to Gion area. Plenty of markets/restaurants etc near by. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel was very clean, regular house keeping checks were done throughout the day. I also liked the privacy of the capsule beds in the dorm. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Kyoto.

Hostel, Clean great facilitys and staff super friendly. And for being 18 bed mixed dorm still very private. Big shout out to alex who organised tickets for us for Guns and Roses concert in Osaka as we were having trouble with translating. Even calling the courier to make sure they arrived in the morning for us. Great Hostel

Was very impressed with this property. It is budget for Kyoto, with a semi traditional feel. It is a small room, futon on mats. But includes everything you could need. With knowledgable, English speaking staff. It was more than we were expecting for budget accommodation. It's simple, safe, in good walking distance from Kyoto station. Would stay there again. Thank you.
