    What I liked about the property was that it was only a walking distance away from Kiyomizu-dera. What I did not like about the property was the lack of cleanliness. On the night when we arrived, I stepped foot into the shower/washroom floor, it was a pig sty. The sink was full of hair from someone who had shaved their beard. The floor was wet and full of hair. The problem was that people completely disregarded that these were shared facilities. The toilets was not cleaned properly. There were stains on the duvet and pillow. You had to pay for certain amenities, such as towel. And you have to pay a city tax of 200 yen for every night you stay.

    Me encantó que tuvieran espacio para preparar alimentos (algo sencillo). Super cómodo la litera al lado de la ventana (aunque por las noches hay un poco de ruido por las motocicletas). Algunos huéspedes un poco "inquietos" a la hora de beber. Área super accesible y muy buen precio considerando que se encuentra un four seasons y un Hyatt por el lugar.

    Stayed 6 nights in Dec 2019


    • Liked: Staff & service

    There are 26 beds in one room, so there was a lack of fresh air.
