          we had a small but comfortable room (ok well the bathroom was more like and airplane bathroom!). staff was friendly and helpful. breakfast buns were minimal although convenience store nearby meant we could easily supplement it, plus there was a fridge in the room. mattresses are quite firm. wi-fi didn't work the first day but then everything was fine thereafter including ability to use it in our rooms (it was supposed to only work in the common area). enjoyed the massage chairs and long days walking kyoto temples, etc. handy to have laundry on site. location is great for catching the train but a bit far to walk to Gion. decent restaurants a short walk. all in all a great value - very reasonably priced accomodation. thank you!

          Nice rooms bigger than expected, writing table and stool, lots of storage spaces, TV although awkwardly placed, yukata (robes)
          Firm beds but not uncomfortably hard; good sleeps
          Free massage chairs, water, computers to use, laundry (soap available at reception for a small fee)
          Common area with tables and chairs - kind of cafeteria-like as opposed to a lounge
          Friendly staff that will make maps and other resources available to you
          Quiet, wonderful neighbourhood with good access to transit and 30 minute walk to main shopping area
          Breakfast is essentially some pastries - they weren't that great tasting nor filling for a day of walking
          Not a huge selection of restaurants nearby but within a 20-30 minute walk lots of options

          Room Tip: They're all the same so it just depends what floor you want. We were on the third and found it quite quiet. Maybe get up a couple of floors to get away from any lobby noise (not that there was any).

          My husband liked this hostel best during our trip with four hotels in Nihon. There are subway stations and bus stations not far from the hostel, leading to Tokyo station and the major tourist attractions. A city bus day-pass is highly recommended. You can even walk to Gion Corner, Shijo Kawaramachi and Nishiki Ichiba for food, shopping, and traditional nipponian marketing with seafood and pickled vegetables.

          The staffs were friendly, the room was not big but well-appointed, and the public area was outstanding. We spent one or two hours in the lounge ever night preparing for the next day route, drew support from the references in the public area.

          It would be better if wifi covered the rooms.

          I'll keep it short since everyone has already noted how wonderful this place is. I would recommend this hotel to friends without hesitation. This is an affordable, well located, clean, and pleasant place to stay.

          Only a few small suggestions for improvement:
          -Hotel NEEDS wifi in the rooms. Too inconvenient to use the one internet accessible computer shared by all in the lobby.
          -Fresh fruit at the breakfast would be lovely.
          -A second towel bar in the bathroom would be nice when trying to hang bath towels. No where to hang them to dry as it is now!

          Overall though, an outstanding hotel!

          Room Tip: If you plan on using your balcony, ask for one NOT above the smoking porch.

          Nice hotel with a very correct pricing (for Japan), nice location, closeby the main temples, bikes for rent which is a perfect way to visit this green city.
          Room are clean and big enough to stay comfortable. Bathroom is small (but this is not a surprise in Japan) but clean and good. Breakfast is rather basic.
          Last but not least, the hotel provides two free massage chairs which are wonderful after a day of sightseeing in the city.
          We certainly recommend this hotel!
