    Staff is very lovely, we made a cook eveyday, it's very cheap.

    It's not so clean, but for a short stay, it's okay

    The only thing I didn't like was waking up at 6am because of some Chinese girls who went to take a shower..

    I like the fact that the staff (Akina) can speak English very well and very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended place to stay.

    Rather rundown building, for this money we stayed at business hotels in other cities.

    There was only one staff member at Peace House Sakura who was very friendly, though clearly overworked, and there's a nice communal atmosphere - with everyone spending time together in the kitchen and making plans to travel together. The location is decent for some Kyoto temples, and is in a nice area of the city, accessible by bus to everywhere else. Its a very backpacker orientated place, so if you're happy with cheap and cheerful then this is perfect for you.

    The building is small, and the kitchen is the only communal space so you're all crammed in together, though that can be fun depending on who else is there. Its a very backpacker place, and my 8 bed dorm had one shower and toilet to use which were upstairs and basic. As there is only one member of staff, you cannot check in until 6pm so the tiny hallway is full of bags all the time and everything feels tiny. The bunks are odd - the top has a plastic tunnel over it which is pointless, and the bed was very loud, while the bottom bunk is a thin mattress on the floor. I'd recommend this for short stays only.

    Peace House Sakura felt very .. "homey"; very comfortable and felt welcomed and the location was near many temples ( Gion district , Imperial Palace , and Train Station.) The Staff is very friendly and Multi- Lingual (Chinese , English , Japanese) Wifi all around and free computer usage in the lobby. Full Stock Kitchen and lobby that allows socialization with other like minded travelers. Full house is non- smoking and very clean. Bikes available!

    The Storage situation was not ideal, but not an issue unless there are many guest checking in that day (bags left along hallway) Refrigerator often does did not have enough space for everyone.

    Location and free wi-fi were good things about this place.

    Not very clean. Our room was quite small.

    Lots of international people choose this place, the position close to the city centre is good to go out in the night. Akira, the responsible of the hostel, is nice and helpful

    I guess you can find cheaper places for sleeping in kyoto.

    It's a typical back-packers hostel, for good and bad. The common room is nice and the staff is friendly.

    It feels very crowded. Small restrooms and showers and narrow corridors.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a toilet and shower on every floor. They offered Wi-Fi. They are located quite central, so you could get anywhere on foot.

    The room smelled very badly. Once you've gotten used to it, it was ok, but every time you reentered, you smelled it again. It was no use airing the place, because that didn't help. The Japanese beds weren't comfortable, you could feel the hard floor. The tatamis weren't of very good quality (and I really like Japanese beds!).

    Very good and functional kitchen, obviously the owner and the management know about the importance as well as the needs of making good meal. Foreign travelers came from different culture, communicating with them is very pleasant.

    Being able to meet lots of people from different countries, everyone was friendly and it was good that we could all sit around and chat.

    Check in is a little late, though you can put your bags in the hallway beforehand. One toilet, sink and shower is really too few I think. No complaints about the actual dorm except my bed was on the top bunk and when I climbed up the ladder it shook and made a lot of noise.

    Free wi-fi in room! Makes contacting home much easier! It was quite cheap and close to quite a few temples, train stations, kimino shops, FRESH AIR and NON-SMOKING RESTAURANTS. After Osaka were everyone smokes in all restaurants, these places were heavenly. You can't check in until 6 so you have to leave your luggage in the hallway and hope that nothing goes missing but luckily all the other travellers are in the same situation and it's actually quite safe to leave your stuff there. The worker was quite helpful after I misplaced my passport at a shop == She also recommended us places to visit which was great. Despite sharing bathrooms and toilets, there were no major congestion problems cause everyone comes and goes at different times.

    Can't complain because this place was quite cheap and accommodating for our group of 4 which is hard to book for. At first site, I wished that I'd paid more for something better because it's general appearance was 'poor' but it was a good place to sleep at night - safe and free wifi and cheap!
