No order of breakfast.
Got a 50%discount for onsen. It was great
Nice staff, they stayed late to let us do our delayed check-in as we had problems with our trains
The bedrooms are very small, barely any space for the luggage. The mattresses on the beds are japanese style which is really uncomfortable for westerners. There was no heating in the room therefore it was too cold, they gave us a petrol heater but you can’t leave that one on all night.
The coziness staying there is definitely one of the reason i enjoy staying there, you can just help yourself with everything and it feels like home.
The staff doesn't know English.
The man at the front desk was very kind and helpful once I'd checked in (though he was fairly strict about the rules.) The hostel also offers a discount to the local bathhouse, which was nice and relaxing. The common area was cosy and quiet, and the coffee was pretty decent as well. Bathrooms and showers very nice and clean. The Arashiyama neighborhood was also very nice -- quiet and cool to walk around, a little busy during the day, but not excessively so. Very pretty area as well.
They are very strict about the rules (you can drop your bags off before check-in time, but you can't actually go in until you've checked in). The rooms didn't have individual ACs, so it got a little stuffy, but the dorm room I was in had a fan which solved that problem fairly well.
With a stay at Guesthouse musubi-an Arashiyama - Hostel in Kyoto (Arashiyama), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Saihoji Temple and Katsura Imperial Villa. Featured amenities include laundry facilities, microwave in a common area, and refrigerator in a common area. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
