    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities
    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    It was a cozy hostel experience with a pretty generously sized kitchen area. The staff were kind and helpful and spoke English well. However, the room that I stayed in had a lingering body odor smell to it...not sure if the cleanliness standards are up to par.

    Bel endroit, bien situé près de la gare, personnel accueillant et aidant. Les kimonos à la disposition des clients sont agréables à essayer. La cuisine très bien équipée était appréciée. Seul point à noter, les matelas sont peu coussinés.

    Great and cheap hostel!

    The common area is really nice and well equipped to prepare meals. The 6 bed room was nice and comfortable enough but the the air ventilator in the toilet next doors was very loud and could be heard inside the room, which is a bit annoying when you're trying to sleep. Overall it's a great hostel, very affordable and at a short distance from the Kyoto Train Station.
