4/10 Fair

Overall uncomfortable for multiple days
Most likely okay for short stays but fairly uncomfortable for multiple day stays. They are stingy with towels and will only replace them once daily and only if you stay multiple nights. The rooms are small as expected and the futons will take up pretty much the entire living space. The worst part is the communal bathrooms and showers. The showers are on the first 2 floors (by gender) which makes for lots of awkward lobby and elevator interactions.

Helpful staff & clean rooms
The stay was great! Close to metro, clean rooms, super helpful staff (even as English speakers), shared facilities were incredibly clean. The rooms and beds aren't the largest, but they are a great deal for the price. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again for staying in Kyoto on a budget.
