Took 15 minutes walking from Kyoto station but near from big mall, 24 hour konbini, I consider this place is great at location.The staff were sooo nice, friendly and patient. I asked for late check in at 10.00 PM but turn out we comed up almost 40 minute later, but the staff still waited for us. No elevator here, but... 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

Super friendly and helpful staff! The first night I arrived in Kyoto I didn't make any reservation for accommodation and I showed up at J-Hoppers late at night expecting there will be a free bed, unfortunately they didn't but the staff called around and eventually found a near by hostel with an available bed for the night. I stayed there... More

Just registered to give some reviews to several of my favorite hotels/hostels. J-Hoppers is one of them. I stayed here for the new year of 2012. I arrived pretty late at night and could not really find the right way, but a super friendly pedestrian guided me to find the right direction. In the morning, it only took about 10... More

Stayed at J-Hoppers Kyoto for 4 nights in May 2014 in their Japanese style single room. I love that the hostel is really accessible from the JR Kyoto station and the bus interchange. The free wifi was also helpful. The room was awesome - good air conditioning, nice mini table, clean tatami mats, trash was cleared everyday. There's a Japanese... More

J Hoppers is such a haven for backpackers. I stayed in all female dorm and LUCKY ME! I beat the single room for a night as I'm the only occupant in the dorm...as the other guests arrives, there's a curtain that gives you a privacy...sorry I don't mingle...though I always smiles at them. 😝 The (turbo) toilets and baths are...
