          This small hostel is well known as one of the best Sake tasting places in Kioto. It's situated close to Gion and Pontocho. It's really clean and the staff is really cool. The best is the bar where you can taste different sake. Really good!

          Hello, I stayed in a double room but with shared bathroom and toilet. The windows were small. But I don't know if they have a second double room with private bath. It may have this information at their web page. Good luck.
