I run a tour company and have used the inn for many years. It is perfectly situated, fabulous staff, kitchen for guest use, Japanese style bath what more could you need. Kahori is the most helpful person you could meet. It is clean, welcoming and has wifi in all rooms plus a computer for guest use.

This place is a small ryokan (traditional Japanese guest house) for backpackers. Shared facilities (which aren't really my thing) but they were clean and reasonably appointed. It was quieter than I expected considering its thin walls, though you may want some earplugs in case you get snoring neighbours. Friendly landlady, and really well located centrally. Downsides would be that you... More

Stayed here for four nights to visit Kyoto and Nara and it's a good place to stay. 10 min walk from Kyoto station, WIFI in the rooms, laundry facilities, kooking facilities and English speaking staff. The hostel is very clean and the two bathrooms and two toilets, wich you have to share, are cleaned daily. The rooms are large enough... More

Good location near Kyoto station and was very easy to find from there, about a 5min walk. Free wifi in room. Well kept. The keeper was very friendly and ever so helpful. The walls were a little thin so could here people walking in the hall but not a problem, was minimal and slept very well.

Excellent budget choice and easy to find on foot from kyoto station, good Japanese experience with beds on floors & cute communal areas, felt like staying in a "home stay", staff are excellent, friendly and helpful and they keep the place immaculately clean for a shared accommodation type. Free coffee etc. You can hear noise as the walls are thin,... More

Easy walking distance from Kyoto Station ( 10 minutes) Room was comfortable with a lovely soft futon. Nice building with lots of corridors Our main problem was the noise, whilst we accept that staying in this type of accommodation is not without noise due to the rooms joining each other, but what we did not expect was to be kept...

Budget guesthouse in a fantastic location in Kyoto (10 mins walk from the station, 15 from Gion). The main appeal of this inn was the price, as we'd opted for an expensive onsen hotel in another part of our trip that blew most of our accommodation budget! You do get what you pay for with the price - no meals... More

Spent a night here. We got a big dadami room in excellent condition. The guesthouse was extremely clean, nicely decorated and well-organized. Also has a good location, for being right in front of higashi honganji. It takes 10 min walk from kyoto station. If you are looking for a traditional and superb guesthouse with budget price and great location, this... More
