Kyoto, Japan22 contributions3 helpful votes
Such a lovely hostel to stay at! The design and art of the place are just awesome and I loved it a lot?”! Staff are very friendly and helpful which make the whole atmosphere chilled and just comfortable. It’s a bit out of the center of the city but still in the very convenient area. The cafe downstairs are quite popular with locals/tourists and you get 10% discount if you are staying at the hotel - which is quite cool. The only con at this place was... as there is a bar on the rooftop and they play music quite loud until after mid-night. It travels easily to the rooms downstairs and it disturbs you when you have early morning plans and trying to sleep. Still, I enjoyed my stay! Awesome work!

Great hostel to stay in - modern design with a variety of room types to suit all types of travellers. There's some nice chill out spaces, a good cafe downstairs that serves a delicious lamb chop, and a nice rooftop bar to enjoy a drink and meet new friends.

I was there for a frisbee tournament last weekend and booked this hostel as it was recommended on event page. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Dorm beds are comfortable too, I just wished the shower room can be a bit wider. Overall, really worth the money!
