Great location, draining hostel
I have very mixed feelings on this hostel. On the positive, the location is fantastic, I mean literally the location leaves you feeling in the middle of the action in kyoto, right between the shopping & traditional districts and close to the food markets. The bar felt pleasant although I never used it. But the hostel although clean, was a very very unpleasant place to be. There was no proper common room (the room they called a common room felt like a prison visiting room full of with only a cheap dinning set, fridge and tea/coffee supplies filling an otherwise tiny, overlit and sterile room) it was legitimately horrible to be in. There was no kitchen nor any other kind of cooking equipment which was frustrating. Some of the dorm rooms were really nice, some were dingy and horrible, it really came to the luck of the draw (the female dorm I saw was horrible, the mixed dorm I was in was actually pretty nice). Being asked to take your shoes off half way a set of stairs was actually really frustrating as it created a bottleneck in the entrance. There was no mirror/sinks on the second floor which was inconvenient. Overall its a great hostel for sleeping in. If you intend to find a hostel where all you do is sleep, this is ideal but the physical/social environment of this hostel was downright oppressive.
