Exceptional 10.0
Cheap and Reliable
This was my second time staying at a WeBase location, and I enjoyed it nearly as much as the first time. I previously stayed at the Takamatsu location. The location in Kyoto is a little smaller than the Takamatsu location (understandable, given the location), but the service was still top notch. Staff was very friendly, facilities were very clean, and the price was great for being able to stay in central Kyoto. The breakfast was not bad (considering it wasn’t free): it was basically breads, cereal, and rice. I think the main con (though this has been a problem in most hostels I’ve stayed in) is that the bunks get really hot when you close the curtain. Since I want privacy while I’m sleeping, I close the curtain at night, but it gets so hot that I usually end up opening it a little in the middle of the night. I think a great solution would be if curtains that are kind of mesh; they allow for privacy, but also airflow from the halls. But I’d recommend WeBase Kyoto and it’s other branches for a cheap and easily accessible place to stay across Japan!

Great environment, super friendly staff. They even have amazing events such as a meet & greet with two super-famous rock bands. They also have live music events, etc.

Great stay
Rooms were simple but clean, the toilets very clean and on every floor so never busy. Showers clean and very powerful, but only in basement so that’s a bit of a pain. The communal area was great, large with ample seating, a great meeting place. The breakfast was nice, tea, coffee, cereal, fresh milk, range of tasty breads with butter, jam, cheese. 20 minutes walk to main station but has stations closer if you prefer not to walk it. would recommend.

Up to date, clean hostel. Good vibe
Overall, amazing value for money and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. pros: Showers were always super clean and well configurated (area to change and keep your clothes, shampoo/conditioner, body wash included). Some of the best hostel showers i’ve ever seen. Staff had different free events/food each night at 7. not sure if this is normal or was just during our new years stay. Hostel is new and so everything is very clean and modern. Can buy bus pass from front desk great lounge space water and coffee kept out all day outlets by bed, thermostat in room new towel given each day and cleaning staff empties your room trash can everyday cons: our twin bunk room did not have a sink. i saw some others did so i’m not sure why ours didn’t. breakfast is only until 9:30 so gets very crowded with not enough tables. i think of management extended the breakfast until 10 this would resolve the issue as people tend to sleep in during vacation. also it only consists of bread and cereal. but breakfast is free so can’t really complain.
