Best hostel in kyoto
The hostel has a really great location, it’s close to Kiyomizudera. It is also easy to access from Kyoto station, the bus stop is really close to the hostel. The bed was really comfortable, clean bathrooms, there is also kitchen if you want to cook something or just heat the food from konbini. Really nice and friendly staff! Would definitely consider to stay there again :)

Very good 8.0
We spent roughly 8-10hours a day at the hostel. Its a great location, and you won't spend a lot of time indoors. Kyoto is a must see!

Nice and good location
It's not the cleanest place we had stayed but it's nice and decent. Climbing 4th floor with two big suitcases wasn't the best thing though... but it's a hostel, can't really complaint about it. Staff is really helpful and friendly. The location is great. Close to everywhere you need to go in Kyoto. I like it.
