This place is a unique experience, unlike other hostels. It is a renovated old Japanese house giving it a charming quality. It's in a good location for the bus service which is much better than the trains in Kyoto. Would have given it 4 stars...More
It was nice to stay in this place. I felt like I was back on time and living in a old japanese house. Clean and organised. Very good location. It was a little hard to find it, but someone helped us. Love it the living...More
The place rescues the traditional experience of Kyoto, the owners were very kind and supportive, they even show us the neighborhood. The place is not located in the center but it has access to different bus stations.

Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the
district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
