    - The host absolutely made this stay. She was absolutely lovely to both of us and genuinely made me and my girlfriend feel welcome. We felt looked after in every way. - The location is perfect for visits to Arashiyama. A lovely walk to the main area and a stones throw from the JR station - Beautiful, well equipped kitchen area and reception

    - No communal seating area - Basic rooms (but very clean and comfortable!)

    Everything was great, specially the staff, they make you feel very comfortable. If I go back again to that area for sure I'll repeat staying there.

    It was a cozy place to stay for a few days.

    wifi only covered half the room, but i was at the top floor corner room.

    A short walk from the station, and you step inside this welcoming little place to be greeted with warm light and decor. Good first impression. Then the staff shoots this hostel to the top of your list of hostels in Japan. The staff was super helpful in getting me and a friend to Arashiyama to see the monkeys before the park closed. She was so nice and helpful. I would stay here again even if the price was higher. So full marks for the staff. The hostel itself also reached all my criteria and more: Curtains in the bunk bed Towels for free Clean shower and sink spaces Quiet (I was lucky with only one other guest in the ladies dorm) Free tea and coffee Kitchen area Lock on doors Close to a station Etc. I will stay here again when I come to this area.

    That I didn’t get to see the staff again and thank her. She was gone when I came back later that night. But they had paper for me to write a message.
