Highly recommended
This is hands down the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The building is so beautiful and smells like sandalwood. The staff are friendly, everything is super clean, there is a beautiful outdoor area and a nice dining area. The beds are comfortable and the room is air conditioned. Do try the breakfast and coffee, they are delicious and vegetarian (very difficult to find in Japan!). I can’t recommend enough.

Amazing hostel!
I stayed 3 nights and it was amazing! the hostel is brand new so everything looked perfect. The bed was comfortable the location was 10 minutes away from the station and walking distance to several temples and shrines. It was always very clean. They are very generous and provide free things such as water padlocks towels earplugs among other stuff. The only downside I would say is that the bathrooms are downstairs and there is no kitchen. But if u don't care about that it's a really good choice if you're planning to stay in Kyoto. The staff are very helpful especially Ono and they helped me to check in through the tablet. I regret I didn't stay longer

Clean room, easy to check in. It uses a self-checkin system so you may want to be familiar with that type of stuff.
