I stayed in the tatami dorm room for four nights. The room was very spacious for 4 pax. The room is kept clean. They have a fridge, a washing machine (for a fee) and a dryer (for a fee).
The Japanese style toilets is on the second floor while the western type toilets is on the first floor. If you have to go in the middle of the night and you want the western toilet, you have to go downstairs. The shared shower is located on the ground floor. You can only take a bath at certain times. It wasn't really inconvenient but you have to take note of that - no midnight showers and so extremely early showers either. They have a sink on the second floor so you can brush your teeth and wash your face there.
The guesthouse is near convenience stores. It is around 10-15 minute walk from everything: central area, temples, and other sights. Reaching the guesthouse is pretty straightforward, just 10 minutes away from Gion station. Just pay attention to the "Gojo Cafe" sign or you might miss it.
The guesthouse has this cozy cafe where you can hang out. Wifi signal is okay.
You can also use their printer. Really helpful staff here. They also have a cute dog.
