--- Background ---
I spent three nights here in the mixed gender dormitory.
The guesthouse is about a 10-minute walk from Nijo Station, a 15-minute walk from Nijo Castle, and a 30-minute walk from Kyoto Imperial Palace.
The staff at this guesthouse are warm and friendly, and are able to communicate in English. They were happy to provide local knowledge with respect to sightseeing opportunities.
--- Amenities ---
The ground floor features a shared communal area including kitchen. Guests are welcome to use this area until midnight, after which quiet time is imposed so that other guests may sleep. A number of tourism brochures are available to guests.
The bathroom, showers, and toilets are also located on the ground floor. There are two showers, two male urinals, one regular male/female toilet, and three bathroom sinks. All bathroom facilities were very clean, and soap and shampoo were supplied. I think there was an additional upstairs toilet.
Towels are available on a rental basis.
Free WIFI and internet is available to guests.
Bicycles are available for rental. These are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Each bed featured a privacy curtain and electricity outlet.
The facilities as a whole are clean, modern, and well-maintained.

The owner of this guesthouse offers a Japanese cooking class which instructs participants in cooking traditional Japanese cuisine.
