we have booked via booking.com but when we got there we found out that rooms were very different form the pictures and the whole place looked abandoned and quite dirty. we have called several times the owner without enetering our room and when she arrived we told her to cnacel our three nights 'cos hygienic conditions are very important for us and we didnt wanna stay there. she said she wouldnt have charged us the night but so far she has done it. now i m discussing with booking.com to clear this situation. my tip: avoid it! Very far form everything

it is true that you pay what you get but..... bad smell, mould, a bed where you cannot sleep, a bathroom smelling like s... , cats (not mentioned on the website), only one shower for everyone smelling piss and with cockroaches, 2 toilets (one was almost impossible to use, maybe if you are well trained) kitchen very dirty with on the side a sink where people wash brush the teeth and prepare for the night, a pair of slippers only for the bathroom (one pair for all the guests!!), poison in the wardrobe (I think for mouses)

we slept in other futons... this was not a futon you cannot sleep on it.

I can go on.. just remember if you go there you get what you pay

Good position, 10 min by walk from Kitaoji (one of the main bus stations) and 3 mins from Matsugasaki subway station. The room was ok, big enough to fit 2 huge backpacks; tatamies, table and chairs. The owner ( an old japanese lady) is really nice and helpful.
The only negative thing is about our last day... we left our luggage in the living room as we were supposed to leave kyoto late in the night. When we went to pick up the suitcases i found out somebody tried to open mine, breaking my locker.
Btw, really cheap for japanese standards and clean! recommended!

Hard to find from the rail station, but not so far once we got directions from a local.

Conveniently located near botanical gardens and bus routes which made it easy to get around
Also a pharmacy an supermarket and postie nearby. We had to go to the postie to withdraw cash as th local atm s and banks don't accept the UK credit cards we had with us.

This is quite a run down.homestay kind of place in need of a good clean and update. The owner was lovely though, very helpful with local attractions and also left us a note for our arrival, saying if we were early to go ahead and use the room and facilities and meet her later that charities us well.

There is a small kitchen area on each floor, though a little grubby it's useful for hot drinks and toast.

Th place was busy when we went, lots of people staying for a long time, nit the most social of places to stay.

All in all the places was fine, basic and not fantastically clean but you get what you pay for.

The WiFi here was super fast too btw

Room Tip: Upstairs seemed quieter.

But may be a place for you! It's basic, old but clean enough, it's comfortable Japanese sleeping style in a very quiet neighborhood, a fan, AC for an extra Y200/ day. And you have most of what you need, TV room, Wifi, washing machine, equiped kitchen, bicycle to use, bus and metro close by.
But...Why not for us? The place is like a kindergarten, rules for everything and papers everywhere, on the walls, on the doors, on the pipes, on the fridge...What to do, How to use, Why this and that, how to go or when to flush the toilet... etc. But may be some needs that because even with so many notes they don't do it.
Why? Because we have hard time with all that cooking smell filling our room from the 2 kitchens, one of it upstair in front of us, (Could be a complete bath at the place of it)
Why? 20 rooms/40 people and only 1 squat toilet upstair in a space of 60x60 cm on a platform of 50 cm; an exercice in itself.. Just next to us, almost felt like they were peeying in our room. And the washing sink in the kitchen, next to the stove, some were using the kitchen sink to brush their teeth or wash their hands after their business.....Discusting!
Why? Downstairs 1 toilet and 1 shower... In 15 years on the road, we never had to do the line every day to be able to take a shower.
If you look for the price 30$/2pers it's your place, you can share with tourist and half permanent people.

Room Tip: The place is easy to find almost at the end of the metro line, stop #2. It will cost you Y280 every time you have to go south via city center. One of the 5 city bus travelling between most of the sites cost Y220. At 10 minutes walk for food you have the Y100 economic store or the Coop Market if you want to cook for yourself.
