This hostel prepared Japanese style culture. If you don't like or don't understand the Japanese style... Don't choose this hostel.

Difficult to access? But, who's keep the traditional scene and town? This town and there street build 1200 years ago. Why I made a hostel here. It has really reason!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

If you want to experience how it was like to live in authentic old Kyoto house, this is the perfect place!
The manager was so kind and helpful it made our stay more memorable. The dedication and love for preservation was what made the manager maintained the olden architecture. It's not suitable for big sized persons though because it's a narrow and small house, quite delicate.
It was real easy to catch the bus too. I recommend this place for the authentic experience!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We both liked our stay there, though the house is a bit cold at times because it's a traditional one. The guy keeping the guesthouse is really nice and helpful. It's close to a busstop and has an easy access to all the tourist attractions and you can rent bikes too. Also a free wifi is convenient! It's a good place to stay overall and I can recommend it to other travellers looking for a nice place to stay at in Kyoto.
