The hostel itself was fine, lovely staff who are very friendly, decent beds and lounge area. The room I was in had the sinks inside the actual bedroom, so I would often be woken up by the sound of people brushing their teeth.
It has a great location and access, only 5min walk to the bus station and convi store, about 10min walk to the train station, near to kiyomizudera temple and down town (kawaramachi). And you can just walk around to meet geisha, because gion is the...More

The staff here was extremely friendly, and the tightly-packed beds were warm and cozy.
It was generally perfect for any short-term guests or backpackers passing through.
The hostel was very conveniently located and well-priced, and I absolutely recommend it.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
