Great location, next to the Gion Shijo station and very close to temples and town. Basic dorm was clean but a got little noisy at night, no lights out policy. Common room is very small . WC and shower are clean and adequate. Sake bar...More

Kyoto is packed with tourists... so we were happy to find a place with reasonable prices. The rooms were ok... it had everything we needed, but of course there are way nicer hotstels for the same price. The best thing by far was the sake...More
Tried not to be so negative but this place has no character, probably the worst stay in my trip. No curtains attached to the bunk beds, warning signs everywhere threatening to impose fines, a table, fridge, some utensils, water heater as pantry. Smell of feet...More
This small hostel is well known as one of the best Sake tasting places in Kioto. It's situated close to Gion and Pontocho. It's really clean and the staff is really cool. The best is the bar where you can taste different sake. Really good!

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.

I stayed in a double room but with shared bathroom and toilet. The windows were small. But I don't know if they have a second double room with private bath. It may have this information at their web page.
