I stayed here for 2 nights in January and was fearing a tiny room with rock hard tatami mattresses. Instead our very clean room had plenty of space and a neat little kitchen and bathroom, the mats were really comfortable and the facilities were great - a communal kitchen, laundry, wifi, luggage storage and very friendly and helpful staff with excellent English. I notice one reviewer was woken by the noise from trucks, but we weren't, I found it surprisingly quiet.
This is great value and you can't beat the location- it's a short flat walk to Kyoto station and the major bus terminal, which can get you anywhere in Kyoto on an all-day ticket. The map on their website with directions from the station is also very clear. It's worth popping into the Tourist Info at the station on your way to pick up a tourist map of Kyoto which includes the bus network.
