stayed for 3 nights at Mar'15.it is just about 3-5 min walk to Hankyu line Kawaramachi Station.it is convenience to those who travel from or to Osaka. Besides, the guesthouse do selling the Kyoto Bus day pass. The staffs are nice, friendly and willing to help us. Appreciate for the cute goody bag received when we check out.

This was one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. It's clean, lots of bathroom facilities and the staff are great! We made a mistake with our booking but they were kind enough to refund 1 night without even asking. They also helped us finding another hotel for the night. Close to all the nice sights and easy to reach... More

The guesthouse is in the middle of Kyoto and is an easy 5 min walk to Gion area. There's a lot of places to eat and many stores just outside Khaosan. I had a very nice stay with the staff being awesome, a clean shower and bathroom. The kitchen and living area was also very good! The only thing I... More

Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff (they all speak good english), very clean rooms, toilets, showers etc. The common room is really cozy and the kitchen is clean and well equipped. Water from the shower was always warm so that's a big yay. Only con was the mattress on the bed. It really hurt my back and I couldn't really... More

I only stayed here 1 night and didn't spend much time here. It was busy time in Kyoto due to the cherry blossoms, so I ended up having to switch hostels. The location is ok (close to the city centre), but I preferred being in Gion the Geisha district on the other side of the river. The people in the... More

We stayed as a couple for 4 nights and the guesthouse was well suited for our needs. We booked a double room which was pretty small and had a bunkbed, but this was what we expected and the room was a great price for the centre of Kyoto. Staff were extremely helpful and spoke good english, and the communal areas... More
