Very convenient location nearby Kyoto Station as well as a subway line. Environment is very clean, but the mattress is a bit too thin, making it slightly uncomfortable to sleep on

Lovely little hostel right in the centre of Kyoto. The rooms are small, but comfortable and clean. Toiletries are provided, and the location is a perfect base for sightseeing. The staff is super sweet. It was a pleasure to stay here.
