A good, safe, affordable, and convenient hostel
Great common room, a couple fridges and lots of shelves to store your own food and plenty of dishes and cookware provided. Free coffee and tea too. Breakfast is basic, I never bought preferring to get convenience store sushi for the same price down the street, but $3 is unlimited coffee and toast, $5 pancakes, sausage, cheese, and maybe some other things, and $6 is the same with unlimited drinks. Dorms weren’t bad, I stayed in an 8 bed mixed. I was the only female with all males but was never bothered or felt unsafe. I was given 2 sheets for the bed and used the loose one to make a curtain around my bunk for added privacy. Showers are nice and clean, though they never got hot just above lukewarm. Guests were always quiet at night (though I did have ear plugs in) and only once did I visit the common room at 6/7pm and it was loud and rowdy with groups of people. In the morning and later at night people would be relaxing. Convenient location close to bus stops and Kyoto station. Cafes, convenience stores, and restaurants (including the one downstairs) are nearby. I enjoyed my staying and the welcoming staff.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
It could have been better.
The location was good, as it is very close to the train station. The little cafe at the hostel offers a good breakfast for a good price. The staff was friendly :) However, the dorm where I stayed had a very weird smell, I tried to open the windows during the day, hoping it will help with the smell but didn’t really work. The mattress was terrible. The shower room had some brown shower mats that gave a dirty feel to the shower room. You have to fix your own bed, fair enough.. but then they don’t provide you with a quilt cover, only a sheet. I found it unhygienic.
