The hostel is located in the heart of Gion - a beautiful area from which to explore the temples and other amazing sites that Kyoto has to offer. We booked a double room for 3 nights and moved to a 6 person dorm on the last night because they didn't have availability. Both rooms were small (as to be expected in Japan) but spotlessly clean and comfortable. The hostel offered free WiFi, on-site laundry service which was very convenient, the entire place was non-smoking (a major plus for us), and they are situated within close walking distance to a bike rental shop. The staff was very friendly and let us stay in the sake bar/lobby area for a few hours before our check-in time and also a few hours after check-out and before our flight. The only negative was that the staff didn't really have too many recommendations for restaurants in the area, so it's best to come prepared with a list. Overall we had a wonderful stay at an affordable price and would definitely recommend this place to fellow travelers looking for a budget accommodation in the heart of Kyoto.
