My husband and I spent five nights here during our stay in Kyoto. It was exceptionally cheap for what was offered. The unit is self-contained and very small, but clean and comfortable. It has a kitchen, but no crockery or cutlery (this can be borrowed if requested). The bathroom is compact, but clean, functional and has a TV in the bath/shower. There is a cute little sleeping loft up a ladder from the lounge room which is very comfortable. It was really nice to not be bothered for our entire stay - the property has no reception, so if you need something there is an email address to get in touch with staff.
Being 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station was great as it was a brilliant base to get to the attractions which are spread around the periphery of the city. The actual area around kyoto station is not particularly nice though, even though there is a fairly large shopping centre nearby. There are certainly nicer neighbourhoods. However, this was cheap, clean and safe.
