The good: - The staff speak perfect english, spanish and italian. - Not too far from the subway. - Bed was clean. - Each bed has curtains for privacy. The so-so: - The girl on the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. First night was at a 6 bedded ladies' dorm. Dorm was spacious enough for 6 people. There was ample space for all of us with luggages. Individual private space was also good. But the bottom bunk where I stayed could use more curtain. All in all, I enjoyed my first time in a dorm. Last... More

The night we arrived at J-Hoppers Kyoto we got on the wrong train and showed up after the 2200 check-in time. The staff was gracious enough to provide us our room keys and permit us to complete the check-in process in the morning. The cost of lodging was very reasonable and included everything we expected and more. The dorm rooms... More

This is not a five-star hotel, but a good place if you want to stay in Osaka at a budget price. It offers dormitory sleeping as well as single room sleeping at a low price. There is a lounge, very friendly reception service, kitchen to prepare your own food, tea and coffee is available, some restaurants nearby and it is... More

spent a night in the female dorm, and the 2nd night in the mixed dorm. the best thing about the place is that there is a staff who would help with our luggage, all the way up to the highest floor (4th floor, female's dorm). since we were there during winter, the tap in the toilet of the 4th floor...

A guesthouse with convenient location; friendly and helpful staff; comfortable and clean room; practical facilities that are usable; all for a reasonable price even for a budget traveller! My only slight disappointment is that there is no elevator in the premises; but that doesn't matter much as the staff are there to help at all times. Recommended to book as... More

the staffs are very friendly and helpful. The location is 10-15 minutes walk from kyoto station,and you can find 7-eleven nearby. The price was good, the facilities was good, and they have many umbrellas , so if it rains, we can lend it for free..

This is my second visit to J-hoppers Kyoto. `This time I found the facilities more convenient and practical,.e.g., many choices of free drinks, hot and cold, and also you could cook some kinds of cuisine, western or Japanese. Besides drinks or foods, you could enjoy staying at comfortable lounge, and refreshing your body physically and mentally. There are convenient public... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
