This is a Trusted Review. Why?

BakPak Gion Hostel is situated around the Shijo area where most of the nightlife is. You can stay out late and just walk back to the hostel. The staff is friendly but may not be there all the time. I don't believe that there is Wifi but there are two computer terminals with internet access. The rooms are not very well ventilated as well. Perhaps not the best hostels that I've stayed in Japan but definitely a good one to stay at for its wonderful location.

Really nice place in a great location with tonnes of character. With the big kitchen, the whole place felt like you were staying at somebodys cottage. Great roof top patio and the 24h grocery down the street is great if you want to cook your own 200Y kobe beef dinner. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, although for the most part they leave you to your own devices. For sure the best place Ive stayed in Japan.

This place isn't for everybody, but it's ok, and has a great location. I wasn't a fan of the tacky college-humor posters (bed-cam and toilet cam? Seriously?) or the fact that the place was freezing cold pretty much 'round the clock. But the staff was very helpful and you can't beat the location.
