Clean, well organized and cheap for the area. Beds were comfy and the hostel is in good walking distance to a lot of sights, as well as good food recommended by the staff. The common area/kitchen is large.

It had a really nice living area, and the area in Kyoto it was in, was really quaint, and really easy to get to the main bar district! Plus the staff that actually worked there were helpful and adorable.

For the money you can't go wrong. Its cheap and a great place to stay. Not far from good tourist spots. They even give free wifi and free towel. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of charging spots. There was Air-Conditioning too which was a nice bonus. You save on accommodation cost here so you can treat yourself by eating out.

The guesthouse is located in a nice old building. Think lots of dark wood, creaky stairs etc. The room it self is maybe a bit less atmospheric but still totally fine for me. By the way, some rooms are laid out in traditional Japanese style (tatami mats on floor and sleeping on futons) while others have a Western type of bed. What I liked best I that the place is very quiet and relaxing. Definitely not a party hostel, but a tranquil homey place very near many interesting sites in the South Eastern part of the beautiful city that is Kyoto. Staff is not always present, mostly there is one girl that comes over in the mornings and evenings. She was however very friendly and helpful, not imposing herself at all but happy to be of help if needed. Good value for money. Would defintitely like to stay there again!
