Fabulous 8.6 From 203 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Good stay! The bar on level one was really good and the bartenders were so friendly! Only thing was that the aircon can be uneven throughout the room as it was right above me (upper bunk) so while I was cold, my other roommates further away could feel warm. Toilets were clean and the lounge on level 2 was a great place to hang out or do work!

A good, safe, affordable, and convenient hostel
Great common room, a couple fridges and lots of shelves to store your own food and plenty of dishes and cookware provided. Free coffee and tea too. Breakfast is basic, I never bought preferring to get convenience store sushi for the same price down the street, but $3 is unlimited coffee and toast, $5 pancakes, sausage, cheese, and maybe some other things, and $6 is the same with unlimited drinks. Dorms weren’t bad, I stayed in an 8 bed mixed. I was the only female with all males but was never bothered or felt unsafe. I was given 2 sheets for the bed and used the loose one to make a curtain around my bunk for added privacy. Showers are nice and clean, though they never got hot just above lukewarm. Guests were always quiet at night (though I did have ear plugs in) and only once did I visit the common room at 6/7pm and it was loud and rowdy with groups of people. In the morning and later at night people would be relaxing. Convenient location close to bus stops and Kyoto station. Cafes, convenience stores, and restaurants (including the one downstairs) are nearby. I enjoyed my staying and the welcoming staff.

Amazing staff and facilities!
Amazingly friendly and accommodating staff. Clean rooms, nice shared facilities. Great for a solo traveler, especially who wants a private room for a good value. Highly recommended

Excellent hostel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bar in the hostel has great happy hour specials and food. Everything was very clean and well thought-out. Easy walk to main train station and good food.

Nice budget option in Kyoto
This is a nice budget option in Kyoto. You get what you pay for: room was very basic (and a bit smelly). Yet you can't bit the price. The location is handy for both Kyoto Station and the Keihan train line. Staff were nice and helpful, and overall vibe was young and cool. Plus they have an onsite caffe that offers very cheap breakfasts, drinks and snacks, as well as live music.

Best bang for your buck hostel in Kyoto!
I have nothing but praises for this hostel. The staff is friendly and understands/speaks English so you wont have issues with communication. They would also gladly help you if you have any questions. The whole hostel is kept clean (especially the restroom!). It's nice to lounge around after a day's tour. The bar beside the hostel is also a great place to unwind when you are in the mood for drinks. Lastly, the location is the best. It's a 10-15 minute walk from Kyoto station. It's near a bunch of bus stops and is only a bus stop away from Gion and Nishiki Market.

Good affordable place in Kyoto
Pretty good, I like the K’s House chain guest houses. Enough English speaking staff, community areas to near new people, everything is pretty clean, above average mattresses, kitchen, all the basic amenities a solo traveler would need.
