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

Last stayed in Nov'12. I have stayed here in the larger mixed dorm on 2 separate occasions. Both times I have found it to be clean, well organised, secure and not too far from Kyoto train station. There is a pretty good yakitori place about 30 secs walk from the hostel (on the corner of the 4 road intersection) and... More

JrHopper Kyoto locates near the subway station - one stop south of Kyoto JR main station. If you plan to stay in Kyoto for a few days, I recommend you to buy Subway+bus 1-2 days pass. This will make the JrHopper location very convenience and very economical to access. Dorm and beds are clean as per Japanese standard. I am... More

Very fast internet, nice beds with curtains and space next to bed to put your bag plus a little shelf and light. Clean and comfortable. Lockers inside rooms to store valuables. Service is also great, I came at 9am (before check in and was able to leave my bag and my valuable items were stored separately). Highly recommend this hostel.... More
