It is close to Arashiyama Bamboo Forest and it was just a 9 minute walk from JR Uzumasa station, which is one stop away from arashayama, and located 5 minutes away from Tengu ramen. The location was good because several main attractions were around, like monkey park, only one station away. The man working at the reception was very nice and helpful. The individual beds were extremely comfortable and private, the lounge space was huge with a full kitchen and fridge to use. Also tee, coffee and water were available to guests for free. It was a great experience staying at this hosel. 100% recommended.
