Very good 8.0
Hostel with great cafe/bar
Room was a standard hostel room, a bit hard to sleep because the person above me moved a lot. Otherwise, an amazing option. Has a really cool cafe that turns into a bar at night.

Cozy Hostel and Cafe!
Thank you for a wonderful stay! The staff here was friendly and accommodating. I messaged them because I was delayed getting in (they have 10 pm check in cutoff) and they waited for me, no problem :) beds were comfy and clean, shower pressure good, towels and locks for rent ($1) and locks available on property, about $2 deposit, and you get the money back once you check out. Little cafe was nice, good coffee and cocktails at night! Short bus ride from Kyoto station or 30 minute walk! Highly recommend Len Kyoto :)

Great boutique hostel
We stayed at Len for one night and loved it. The staff are all incredibly friendly, the bar area is really cool and the food and drinks are great. The food in particular was really good, especially for the price. The craft beer is expensive but that seems the case all over Japan. We had a twin bunk room which was no frills but nicely done never-the-less. The shared bathrooms are clean and modern. If I return to Kyoto, I'd definitely stay here.
