4/10 Fair

Really nice atmosphere in the common areas and lobby bar/cafe. The bed was very old and the provided towels smelled off. Noise isolation very poor, could not get a restful sleep despite being in a private room.

Great location, lovely staff, very clean. Very good prices. Bus stop basically right in front, and 7-eleven only 2 min away. The cafe and bar seem to be well-known, so there are chances to meet locals. The one event they hosted during my time there was a blast - live music, live art, good food and drinks. Staff give EXCELLENT restaurant recommendations. If you arrive too early for check-in, they can hold onto your bags and leave them in a room that is only accessible to staff which is very nice. I think the only negative is that I wish they had the fancier toilets haha. I had a great stay at Len and highly recommend.

The bar downstairs made for a great spot for a drink before bed, but if you prefer a quieter space there was also a room upstairs where you could relax.

Hostel with great cafe/bar
Room was a standard hostel room, a bit hard to sleep because the person above me moved a lot. Otherwise, an amazing option. Has a really cool cafe that turns into a bar at night.

Cozy Hostel and Cafe!
Thank you for a wonderful stay! The staff here was friendly and accommodating. I messaged them because I was delayed getting in (they have 10 pm check in cutoff) and they waited for me, no problem :) beds were comfy and clean, shower pressure good, towels and locks for rent ($1) and locks available on property, about $2 deposit, and you get the money back once you check out. Little cafe was nice, good coffee and cocktails at night! Short bus ride from Kyoto station or 30 minute walk! Highly recommend Len Kyoto :)
