As the house is renovated from a traditional Japanese house, so sound leak out from the room. No keys for all rooms, but there are lockers with key.

I have a wonderful trip in Kyoto and happy to live here.This house is not very big, but warm and clean. Location is good, can take bus to everywhere. We have a hot pot party at the last night of 2015, this is my first time to celebrate new year in Japan.Thanks Toru for bring me such a good time.

Toru was an amazing host and was very friendly and helpful. He was always around or easily contactable if we needed help or had any questions. The house had everything we needed and was in a good location with a bus stop right outside. The house is set up like a hostel so other guest stay in other rooms. Our only complaint was that it was very noisey. When we were in our room we could often hear other guests talking in theirs or outside traffic noise. Toru does go out of his way to help by providing earplugs which we were greatful for when trying to sleep.

Good experience for staying in Japanese traditional house. Toro and the staff is fluent in English and very helpful. House facilities are well-prepared : a full-equipped shared kitchen, washer/dryer, shared wash room/bath room(very recommend to experience the public bath nearby in cold weather though). One note to take, as it is the traditional house, no sound-poof between rooms. The location is convenient. There is a bus station in front of the house. However, we opt to renting bike from Toro for 2 full days and it's quite amazing how easily you can access with most of the popular attractions such as Fushimi Inari Taisha, Arashiyama in biking distance. It's a pity that we were not able to join you for drinks the last day of our stay but in all thank you for the hosting!!

Comfortable stay in a traditional Japanese house. The people at YouEnMe were nice and helpful, and made me feel at home right from the start. The owner Toru took some time from his busy schedule to socialize with me, and shared tips for sightseeing in Kyoto. All in all, a very positive experience.

The room was cozy- great for the two of us, and although it was right next to the common area of the sharehouse, it offered a lot of privacy. Shower and toilet was good despite being shared and there was a common kitchen that was pretty convenient. The sharehouse itself is located close to Kyoto Station, and there are many convenience stores and shops within a few blocks of walking distance. Would reccomend to any traveller wanting to live in a comfortable, convenient place in Kyoto.
