This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very friendly welcome. Room clean but slightly on the small side. Breakfast area also not quite big enough when larger groups staying. Located a while from the station away from the centre of Kyoto.

Nice new looking place. 100 yen internet for 20 mins, 150 yen breakfast (coffee toast and butter only) which they donate to a charity. Very clean, bed was a little bit hard, very nice staff.
It's a walk from Kyoto station but to the south not the north - so not towards the main area - it's about a 3km walk to where the downtown area is so bring walking shoes! Otherwise you can take the 220 yen bus.
English movies on TV so that was good. Overall a nice place.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed in a 4 person room which was reasonably priced compared to other 4 bed rooms at other places on the internet. It is situated on a main road so be prepared to hear some traffic noise. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and japanese bedding was fine. It needed a blind on the side window for nighttime. I used the laundry facilities which were fine. It was good value.

In a class of its own. Absolutely wonderful room, excellent facilities. To have your own shower and separate toilet when 4 people share a room is incredibly convenient, but to have two basins is almost luxury! A fridge, a shoe cupboard and a tiny balcony for drying towels etc made the few days so comfortable, and the added space for our luggage made a huge difference in being able to find things!

It's only a 10 min walk from Kyoto Station, although the directions to the booking agent could be made clearer, as could the directions for getting out of Kyoto Station at the right exit and which way to walk (a map would be useful).

There are plenty of good places to eat nearby, and a subway station a few minutes away. Buses are also convenient.

The young couple who run the place are delightful and although their English is rather limited they did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable.

I wish them all the best.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I think the staff are very nice , although they don't speak much English, but you are in Japan. Not much of the information about places. It is good for family, not for a regular backpacker because , common room close at 23;00. So, if you are not in the town, you can not do anything beside sleep. We stay in private room, which is OK , the best part is elevator up to 5th floor and private shower and toilet in the private room. If you stay in the dorm, it might not entertain you that much. Overall, it fit for a group of people around 4 pp. More than that will be too many in the room. By the way if you know how to use public transportation, it is very convenient to many places. I recommend taxi, if you carry luggage, very cheap, less than 700 yen to go to Kyoto station.
