Stayed at this very homely guest house for 3 days. The ground floor has a typical Japanese style sit down, with the walls lined with books. There is a small common kitchen with all basic utensils for any cooking if required. The toilets are common and well stocked and again like any Japanese house/hotel its surgically clean. There is washing... More

It's a guest house and the ladies dorm are separate from the men's dormitory. Very affordable. There is a common dining table and sort of a small living room where all guests can socialize if they want. Which for us is really great because we get to talk with other travelers and share experiences if this and that attraction is... More

We stayed here during a very busy time in Kyoto and it was the only guesthouse we could find vacancy for two days. The front desk was helpful and the hostel offers good amenities, like wi fi, books, kitchen. We found the private room too small, and we could hear people snoring and talking, so difficult to get a good... More

This is a very lovely super-friendly; great value guesthouse; It has a comfortable communal sitting area with kitchen facilities. Free wifi and use of computer. There are books to read; a large television and dvd films to watch. It is spotlessly clean; tidy and organised. The owner goes out of his way to help with anything. The rooms are cosy... More

First up, this place is tiiiiiny. I travelled with much luggage, so fitting everything in the dorm room without inconveniencing fellow travellers was a bit of a challenge. That said, the beds themselves are comfortable, you have privacy curtains, a bedlight and clothes hooks. Facilities are very clean and each room key also has a key for a locker downstairs.The...

This was one of the cleanest guest houses I've ever seen in my life. The staff was fabulous, really helpful and kind, they helped me a lot. The rooms are very clean, with comfortable beds, but everything is indeed a bit cramped, just like real Kyoto homes. It's actually a way to experience life in a modern Kyoto house! The... More

Stayed here for one night on May 20 with a friend and got a double room. Everything was very clean -- the lounge area, kitchen, our bedroom, flooring, toilets and showers. Bread was provided with breakfast and margarine / jam was provided in the fridge (shared for all guests), along with juices, tea, coffee, and Calpis. Toiletries (shampoo, body wash,... More

For 2200-2300 JPY a night its not bad - beds are clean. The hostel as a whole is super clean. Showers are free - dont have to pay 100 JPY like certain hostels. The beds are very comfortable - new leather beds but the space itself is very small and cramped. You wont like this place if you are claustrophobic.... More
