    Tried not to be so negative but this place has no character, probably the worst stay in my trip. No curtains attached to the bunk beds, warning signs everywhere threatening to impose fines, a table, fridge, some utensils, water heater as pantry. Smell of feet...More

    This small hostel is well known as one of the best Sake tasting places in Kioto. It's situated close to Gion and Pontocho. It's really clean and the staff is really cool. The best is the bar where you can taste different sake. Really good!

    Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
    in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
    entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
    Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
    gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
    streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
    dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion

    Hello, I stayed in a double room but with shared bathroom and toilet. The windows were small. But I don't know if they have a second double room with private bath. It may have this information at their web page. Good luck.
