“Nice but just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

The problem we had with this hostel was the location. It wasnt central enough and we had to do alot of walking. Unless you dont mind spending tons of money on the subway and public transport, then this place is ok. The rooms are small, even for japanese standard. We didnt even have a place to put our stuff. There was a tv which wasnt useful because we were hardly in anyway. And the toilet had a funny smell. But the service was good and the staff could speak good english, which is a pleasant surprise in japan. The hostel is near the kyoto station but the main area is really at the gion district.
The bonus was that we had free breakfast.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

- With a nice modern decoration, it opened in April 2013. Beds for one person are big enough for two people
- Staff speaks fluently english and chinese (mandarin)
- 3 min walk to the Kyoto station, easy for getting around Kyoto with buses or subways
- Breakfast is included (with bread !!)
- Bar
- free internet on iMacs, free wifi as well
- free tea coffee 24h

What else ?!

Room Tip: 6 bed private are really good, but dormitories are fine as well if you can't afford it
