Good value for money in Kyoto
We (couple) stayed here for 2 nights in one of the family rooms as we wanted our own bathroom. Room is fairly big for 2 people, windows were on the side of the building so not out to the road which was good. Looks like in the picture and cleanliness was good also. Hostel was very calm and quiet.
