スタッフの方は気さくで、泊まり客同士もすれちがう度に挨拶したり会話したりで、宿の施設でけでなく、人も魅力的な宿でした。 シャワーは無料で24時間使えますが、湯船使用は300円かかり、タオルや備品レンタルさしたければ、夜9時までしかスタッフがいないのが不便です。 やだの場所は、京都の町屋に馴染みのない人にはややこしくバス停からの道が若干わかりにくいです。

古さはこの施設のメリットであると思えれば、とても素敵な宿です。多少の不便さが逆に新鮮でした。1階の部屋に泊まりましたが、二階でお客さんが歩けば天井は軋み、襖の向こうは玄関とフロントのため、人の出入り、会話の音がそのまま聞こえます。それも含めて、この宿の特徴です。 尚、朝食は大変美味しく、特に白飯がツヤツヤ甘く、オーナーに伺ったところ、そもそもご実家で収穫したお米を使っていたそうで、近年は親戚から調達したお米とのこと。坪庭を眺めながらの朝食はとても良かったです。
