Great valuePosted Apr 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
My first stay at a capsule type guest house and Jalan-do was terrific. Very clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff, modern facilities, excellent location, this place has it all. For affordable economy travel this place is a great place to stay. I highly recommend Jalan-do and will return myself on my next visit to Kyoto.

Cheap and CheerfulPosted Apr 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
A friend and I decided to visit Kyoto whilst on a business trip. This hotel was about £200 cheaper than anything else we could find. The hotel was clean with well kept bathroom and shower facilities. Help desk staff spoke good English and were very helpful. The bed was a little uncomfortable and you only get one pillow but very reasonable for the price and I'd stay there again. Free ear-plugs are available and I would suggest getting them as the fan in each capsule can be a little noisy

Great area, new facilitiesPosted Jan 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great area, friendly staff, clean and new facilities. very warm. no wifi in dorm/capsule area which is probably good. Free breakfast is included but is extremely basic. In main area of downtown kyoto although not the easiest to find without instructions.

Near the action!Posted Dec 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
It is very near the main areas of attraction, including Kiyozumi-dera (20min walk). It is also near many near areas to just walk around.

First capsule experience, better than expected.Posted Nov 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
My first stay in a capsule. It was more roomy than expected, and I could sit up straight without problems (167cm height). The dorm was clean and once the curtains are closed, there is complete privacy. Especially love the showers! Make sure you get the exact directions. I got lost 3 or 4 times even after I've found the place. But it's located in a convenient place near to the market.

So glad I stayed here!Posted Sep 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
I really enjoyed my stay as the staff was friendly and helpful and I met interesting travelers from several different countries. It is a great location near a large market and within walking distance to many temples. A plus for me, as I am vegetarian, is that there is a fantastic vegan restaurant almost across the street!

PerfectPosted Sep 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
I loved my stay here. The beds were roomy and comfortable, I honestly had trouble wanting to leave my cool, dark, wifi-enabled box to go out into the sweltering Kyoto summer. It's within walking distance of everything I wanted to see, and right next to shopping and food and convenience stores. The amenities are GREAT, with two sets of washers and dryers, a 'western style' shower and enough counter space for plenty of girls to get ready in the morning. It's a newer building, not very 'traditional' like some of the guest houses I've stayed at, but a great place to relax and recoup after a long day exploring :)

great stay in a clean and very convenient locationPosted Aug 10, 2012
Pros: shower, toilet, common area with TV and laptops internet
Cons: beds were a bit stuffy but not horribly hot, AC sufficient, stayed there in the summer
Location: very convenient close to bus stops, 10 mins bus to kyoto stn, very close to markets and convenience stores
very helpful and friendly staff, superb shower, very clean rooms toilets and common area, very nice atmosphere. I just wish that the beds/capsules were a bit cooler but overall good value for money and a great stay and very convenient location.
