I boked this hostel, as it was pretty much the only place left in Kyoto (I went during cherry blossom season). It was a good find - reasonably priced, great location, easy to find. I did find it a bit of a struggle to meet people here though. There were 2 10 bed dorms, one for men and one for... More

Great location, right in the middle of Kyoto's most beautiful area. The hostel is split over the 3rd and 5th floors of an apartment block, with the reception and dorms on the 3rd and the common room on the 5th. Beds are comfortable and have privacy curtains, and the showers and toilets are clean. The staff speak decent English. The... More

Location: Very good and convenient. 5-10min walk to Gion Shijo station/ Gion area/ Shijo, ponto-cho area. 2-3min walk from the bus stop "Gion" or 1min from "Chion-in mae". However if you want to access the less touristy spots (via Kyoto station), you will need to take bus to Kyoto station first before departing for your destination, so it maybe added... More

The staffs are friendly to answer my requests and enquiry even though not very fluent in English. They provide clear written information on the notice board which help me to plan my trip. I like the common area where we can sit down to chat with free flow coffee or tea and meet new friends.

The hostel is well priced and is in a great location. The staff there are really friendly and helpful and the common area upstairs is an added bonus. If you're heading to Kyoto, definitely consider staying here

A-Yado Gion is on a quiet street just a stone's throw from the Gion area...close to Nishiki Food Market, shopping, train, subway, and bus stations. The hostel is really clean and the staff is extremely helpful. The dorm beds have privacy curtains and individual lamps and outlets for each bed. It can get a little cramped in the dorms as... More

This hostel was amazing. I definitely recommend it if you are in Gion. There aren't many rooms and it is small but it makes it great because you get to meet amazing people. Also, all the places are very tiny (hostels, restaurants, shops, etc). The staff was simply perfect. They helped us with absolutely everything. When you arrive, they take... More

The hostel is small because it is a flat so the room is cramp. But it's clean, good and new mattress. However, the shower attached in the room is not narrow. The kitchen is on another floor having fridge, microwave... I asked the train from Kyoto to Tokyo and the staff print out the schedule of train, time arrive and... More

We spend 4 nights at a-yado hostel and it was amazing. Clean, great service in the lobby and it is located right in the middle of Kyoto. Gion is a nice and cozy part of Kyoto. Great experience, I would recommend this hostel to anyone who is traveling to the greater Kyoto area.
