Really good location for everything in Kyoto and so close to the station that was so helpful. There was a free breakfast of traditional porridge which was a nice bonus but on a first come basis so if you get up late there may be none left. The staff were really friendly and helpful were possible. Dorm room beds were comfy and had total privacy with curtains which was really nice.
The toilets are outside in the back courtyard, which we didn’t expect, this wasn’t too much of a problem but at night it’s freezing (in November) and you have to go downstairs and out the back to go to the toilet or brush your teeth. Also a few people were using that same small area to smoke in so you then have to walk through it to go to the toilet, and it being a traditional building it makes everywhere smell of smoke.
If you would like to stay in a genuine traditional house in Kyoto, this place is very lovely. With everything that comes with it! Rental bike for 550 yen that took me to all the most crowded “must-dos”. The staff was super nice and upgraded my room to a private for free because they had a cancellation in it:)
Very good location and reasonably priced hostel. Staff was really helpfull. They suggested restaurants in the area and spoke very good English. There was tea and coffee available to all guests.
We found the room to be a bit stuffy as there was no window. It was the front room so it was a bit noise when people got in late night. A guest confused the private entrance with the main hostel entrance and woke us up in the middle of night.
Very traditional Japanese ryokan. The private room was huge and comfortable. The front desk staff were very helpful and spoke English. I was provided with a bicycle free of charge for the day and given a map of Kyoto with highlighted areas to explore.
The washroom was pretty much an outhouse in the backyard area. Even though it was an inconvenience it was very clean with a modern toilet. The house is very old and creaky. Every step can be heard throughout but earplugs were provided. It was a little expensive but you’re paying for the traditional experience. Don’t come here if you want super clean or modern. Side note: It wasn’t dirty, just an old house with experience. It wasn’t like going to a capsule hotel that was built last year.
I liked the location and the staff.
I didn't like that the walls are really thin so you can hear everything. The ground room smells a bit like mold.
