I have the benefit of staying not only in the Kyoto branch but also at J Hoppers Osaka and J Hoppers Hiroshima. Overall: 1. Everything good you read about them are true 2. Unbeatable value for money and decent location 3. It's not perfect, nothing is, not even 5 stars hotel but it's damn good. I managed to get a... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. We booked last minute and the staff were accommodating to our needs, even squeezing us in for extra nights. The staff were beyond helpful and so lovely!!! The location was good, there are hostels closer, but we were happy to walk or bicycle the distance into busy downtown ( about 35min walk). The facilities were... More

Location is 15 mins walk from central JR Kyoto line. It is just situated adjacent a main intersection. I would commend on the hostel's professionalism. Upon arrival, I was settled in very quickly and in a very orderly manner: payment, general information, extra services. Also there were many information available on the shelves and desk. Staff was very friendly too.... More

The price is right, I guess. I mean, it's a youth hostel in one of the most expensive countries in the world. It's not great but it will give you a place to sleep. and in all honesty, if you're in Japan, you will hardly ever stay in your hotel. Right? Service is excellent, room is small but clean. I... More

A decent guesthouse with the exception of some factors. It is located at an intersection near Kyoto Station (approx. 10-15 minutes walk). The location is good, but there is not much to see along the way. It can also be a bit of a hassle to reach for those carrying luggages due to the uneven and slanted sidewalk. As for... More

Close to the station, staff are really fluent in English, they are also so kind. I remember having multiple changes in my booking since I had several schedule changes too but they were patient enough to accommodate me. This is also a nice place to meet new people, I have new friends now thanks to J-HOPPERS! :)

Close to the station, so very convenient if you arrive at the JR station. The place is nice and clean, beds are comfortable, you have PC's connected to internet on the groundfloor. The staff is very professional, providing you with all the information you need but I didn't find them particularly friendly contrary to what is said in other reviews.
