Breakfast is worth the price of admission.
The breakfast is the best. Lots of fruit, home made miso soup, assortment of pastries, rice and veggies, and assortment of juices, coffee and tea. Don't miss out on the breakfast.

Best hostel in kyoto
Such a friendly place. Thanks for making my stay so great.

Fantastic local warmth
All the people in this hostel are so nice that you can enjoy a very very very good breakfast with many types of bread and handmade miso soup & rice. It has all the basic facilities for a typical hostel. I dont have much complaints except it may be quite noisy in the morning, as the owners need to wake up early to prepare breakfast and many fellow travellers wake up early too. But if you want to enjoy good breakfast it is something you cant avoid isn't it?

Unbeatable hospitality and in a great location to see the temples and shrines of Kyoto. Will absolutely return to this guest house!
ca2 night trip
Good 6.0
Very friendly hostel, but also uncomfortably cramped. Barely enough room to turn around in front of the lockers...but at least they have lockers. Loud, too -- it's on a busy street, and the women's dorm room is at the front, upstairs, so you hear traffic noise all night long. Location is great for sightseeing, though. Really close to the temples along the east side of Kyoto, and easy subway access.

Very good 8.0
Would do it again but there were small issues
Overall we enjoyed the stay. We loved having two floors. However, the rooms were a bit dusty, also there were no hooks for bath towels.
