Not hostile at all!
Clean modern facilities. Staff is friendly and speak very good English. Can not beat the price. Centrally located and near both train and bus routs. This will become me go-to place when visiting Kyoto.

The environment is very clean, the service staff is very good, there are some facilities in the house that can be used, it feels great, but it may be that other travelers are too loud and it is difficult for me to fall asleep.

The location is not far from the subway station and it takes about 10 minutes to walk, which is very convenient for backpackers. The overall environment is very clean, there are some simple equipment to use, and will stay again!
