This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was the second time that I stayed in this hostel. I like the service here especially helpful housekeepers with smile. They were eager to help. Good English!! We actually stayed here on 13 Apr, 17-18 Apr 2013. Overall was good. Good location, nice people, close to convenient stores and restaurants. The only bad comment was too much dust in the room. We had to leave the window open all day. Then, close it at night.

ส่วนตัวพักที่นี่เป็นครั้งที่ 2 แล้วค่ะ ชอบการบริการของเจ้าหน้าที่ที่นี่เพราะรอยยิ้ม พร้อมที่ช่วยเราตลอด ในทริปนี้พวกเราพักกันวันที่ 13, 17-18 เมษายนค่ะ โดยรวมถือว่าดีค่ะ สถานที่ดี ใกล้สถานี พนักงานน่ารัก ใกล้ร้านสะดวกซื้อและร้านอาหาร คอมเมนท์นิดนึงคือ ฝุ่นในห้องที่เยอะไปหน่อย พวกเราต้องเปิดหน้าต่างไว้เพื่อระบายอากาศท้งวันแล้วค่อยปิดในตอนกลางคืน

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We only stayed here one night but the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Similar to the J-Hoppers in Osaka. Also since we stayed here after staying at Osaka J-Hoppers we were very comfortable.

Quite close to the train station and a few shops. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very nice and hostel-y hostel. But travellers might want to think twice before deciding to stay near Kyoto Station. Despite being the biggest station in Kyoto, Kyoto Station is actually quite far from most of the interesting sights.
