Exceptional 10.0
Great location in the Gion District
While I didn't have the full ryokan dining experience here, it was still super-convenient to be walking distance from many of the sights I wanted to see! I only stayed one night, but I wish I had more time to interact with the friendly staff I did meet. Cute fish in the aquarium at the front!

Small but relaxed
The surrounding area was great. We climbed up to the mountain observation deck, I forget the name, sorry. Tons of local shops and still within walking distance to kyoto station(for us anyways, we walked everywhere). The mats were rough to sleep on but they offered us extra blankets to we were able to add some extra padding. Unfortunately no extra mats though. Still a minor language barrier but the staff do their very best to decipher and help if they're able to.

Well kept hostel with helpful staff and very cozy cubicles. The hostel is located about 10-15 minute walk from the train station but it's in the midst of all the cute restaurants and some famous temples. Great location.

Very Good 8.0
Nice and comfy
Non smoking facility and that's an A+, quiet environment away from downtown. They should offer to change beddings though.

Very Good 8.0
Perfect location, wonderful tatami experience
The stay was good, the only downside is the small size of the toilet. Perfect location, close to city centre, about 15 minutes walk to Pontocho Alley, situated in the peaceful and more traditional side of Gion. Extremely friendly staff is a plus point!
Andy, gb2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Basically a hostel with tatami rooms
Great area. The age of the building, and atmosphere when in your tatami room is good, though with age also comes some things such as creaking floor boards and a slight musty smell. The common area is like most hostels, though small for the number of rooms. The bathroom area is open, so expect to be in full view to anyone walking to kitchen, as you clean teeth, remove make up etc.
