Fabulous 8.6 From 63 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Staff are nice and helpful. Place is slightly grotty. Location is almost unbeatable as it accesses to everything and everywhere in a matter of 8-minute walk to reach a bus or Hankyu Railway.
Joseph, gb7 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great stay
Nice little hostel. Situated in a great part of central Kyoto. It was a short walk to multiple train stations, tons of shopping and places to eat.
Peter, us2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
I will return again.
Although the hotel is a little old and rough around the edges, the location, staff and basic facilities make everything worth it. I would recommend any who would be going to Kyoto to stay here for its friendly atmosphere and excellent staff.
