A very basic hostel. Booked due to everywhere else being full. Accommodation was quite old and so therefor cold even in April. There was a heater provided so that was certainly used whilst we stayed. Again showers etc old but met the needs of backpackers...More

This is the worst hostel I ever been to. Smelled bad, something between wastes, smoke and mold. You could basically hear your neighbors breath. Bad service. If you want the reception to call a hostel, restaurant or what ever, prepare to pay for it.

Hi, I have already booked 4 bunk beds in the Female Dormitory Room at Tomato GH in Kyoto. The room description I saw during the booking was "Dormitory offers 4 beds / 2 bunk beds". I take that to mean there are only 4 beds in this room, so we don't have to share the room with others. However, later on, I saw the offer "bunk bed in Female Dormitory Room" again. The description of the room is the same - "Dormitory offers 4 beds / 2 bunk beds". Does this mean the room we have booked actually has more than 4 beds? We would like a private room for 4 persons / 4 bunk beds and do not want to share with others. So, if the room has more than 4 beds, then we will have to re-consider our booking. Please clarify. Thanks.
