6/10 Good

This was a fine place to stay for only a small number of nights. They claimed to clean daily between 10am-3pm but at night the sinks were still filthy with the stuff in there from that morning. People were having conversations and talking on their phones in their beds at night despite the signs saying not too. Lockers were not big enough for luggage and there wasn’t really a dedicated place to put luggage so it was just left wherever it could fit in the room. One morning I came out to a man asleep on the couch in the common space upstairs which was slightly disconcerning. The bathrooms did have a cute theme and the beds were comfortable however.

I communicated with GATE80 staff earlier regarding my midnight late check in. A password was said will be provided to enter the front door for my self check in but it doesn't carried out as planned. At the end i'm stuck outside for about an hour until a tenant helps to open the door as i'm knocking the door all the time.

10/10 Exceptional

We had initially only booked in for one night, but after that wonderful peaceful, comfortable night we decided to extend for another 2 nights! The staff were absolutely lovely, they were friendly to chat with, gave us advice on where to go to maximize our experience in Kyoto, and were just genuinely kind and helpful. The location is great, just a quick 5 minute walk from the train station, making it very convenient to get around Kyoto! The shower and toilet rooms were adorably themed, and very clean! Laundry was cheap and amenities such as washing detergent, razors, ear plugs etc were available at reception! The building is secure with a code you have to use after hours to get in! The only thing that was missing, or perhaps we just didn’t see, was a kitchen... there was however a kitchenette with free coffee and tea, along with a microwave, and basic disposable dishes and cutlery! We loved the double capsule that we had, the bed was comfortable and the entire place was clean!
