2 Nights stay in 4-bed Private room
1.The location was superb. 2 mins to nearest bus & train station. 5 mins walk to Gion district. Nearby shopping districts and malls. 2. The staffs were really friendly and made us feel welcomed (speaks good English too) .They provided us with guides and tips to go around kyoto (also pointed out the available halal restaurants nearby for Muslims). Do ask them if you ever need assistance. 3. The room and facilities are exactly as described in the pictures. Although the wifi may be poor in certain rooms. You can enter and leave the Guesthouse at anytime after check in. 4. There are lots of toilets and are available on every floors. 5. Luggage storage is available at the lobby but can also be brought into rooms (recommended for private rooms) Overall we had great time in Kyoto having a nice place to return to after a long day. It is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for cheap but comfortable place to stay in Kyoto. Definitely will come here again one day.

Best location with great price
Location was perfect. Down the street from a lot of shops and about 15 from the market. 12 minute walk to get the station that goes to Kyoto station. 5 and 7 minutes to two other subway stations. We had a private room with a bunk bed, which had a Decent amount of space for a Japanese room. Nice lounge area. Huge rooftop! Nice pillows (memory foam). Bathrooms could be updated; some of the doors to toilets didn’t close/lock correctly. Shower and bathrooms were clean. Most of the staff were really nice. For the price we paid, I think it was a steal.

Great budget guest house near teramachi road
Khaosan guest house has great position for the location, which is near teramachi shopping area. The condition of guest house is fair for us, however it needs some improvement regarding the room facilities. Recommended for budget stay.
