very value! especially if you go to Kyoto in winter. i stayed here only for 2550 yen for TWO NIGHTS.
in gion district, near nishiki market, shijo - kawaramachi shopping street, and yasaka shirine. near gion bus stop (3 mins walk) and 5 subway stations (5-10 mins walk).
i stayed in 10 beds female dorm in 3rd floor. A yado only have 2 dorms, which is a female dorm and a male dorm. all dorm with 2 ensuite shower room, yes, you don't need to get outside dorm for take a shower :). hot water is stable with free soap, shampoo, and rinse/detergent. they have 4 toilets (not a japanese modern toilet) beside female dorm (2 female and 2 male).
in 5th floor, they have lounge, PCs with high speed internet, kitchen, dining room, tv, and washing machine (free use until 10pm daily). they sell noodle cup 150 yen and rice. if you smoking, you can sit in front of a yado lounge door, but it so cold when winter. if you want to print something, you just email to reception, and its for free.
i was surprised, for the first time in japan i can mingle and go out with another a-yado female and male solo traveler to eat the best ramen in kyoto.
seriously, a yado is the best hotel i have ever stayed in japan :)More
