Chose Piece Hostel basing on the very good reviews about this place though it does not have attached bathroom. Plus, we only stayed here for one night from 6 Nov to 7 Nov 2015. A double standard room at SGD80 and a bed for female dorm(SGD31) for my daughter as there is no triple room available. Shared bathroom. Breakfast included.
This hostel is very well maintained and excellently designed with backpackers in mind. Reception is from 8am to 10 pm. All instructions are labelled in English. There are more than enough clothing hooks in the room. There is a small washing basin in the double standard room which is convenient. There is also a lift. Water pressure is very strong. Place is clean. Free coffee and tea. Wifi is good. Paid DIY laundry service is available. Enough toilets. However, shower rooms are located on the ground floor. Shampoo and shower gel are provided.
Piece hostel is about 10 minutes walk from JR Kyoto station. We walked a long way from the central exit of JR Kyoto Station. Later, we found that a shorter way was from the Hachijo East Side where McDonalds is – cross a small road – then cross the main road – turn left – look up for a sign “Hotel Centnovum Kyoto ” – walk in the small lane – you will see some residential houses – Piece Hostel is just round the corner.
Not only backpackers stay here, I notice there were families like mine staying here too. It’s a good stay and reasonably priced. No wonder this hostel was so crowded when we were there.
