    This hostel is great in architecture and equipment. We had a twin bed room and a bulk beds room for 4 and both were very clean and confortable. The buffet breakfast is good but always the same every day. The common bath area is clean...More

    I love this hotel so much. But, the location is too far from Kyoto Station. There's no free towel and toiletry, you should provide by yourself. The staff provide Kyoto City Bus One Day Pass if you want sightseeing Kyoto with bus ❤

    The location is a bit far from the city but I love the place. The ambiance is close to nature. The hostel is clean with friendly staffs. Stayed here for 3 nights. I would recommend this place to all backpackers like me.

    houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the
    riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature
    lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The
    area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
