It was within reach from the central station, both by train and bus. The price was good, the staff was helpful and friendly. Clean and good room, with Japanese futon bed and it was very comfortable (to my surprise!). They got toilet and shower room, hair dryer, and microwave in each floor. They even provided soap, shampoo, and conditioner inside... More

We stayed here for 3 nights (due to being desperate for accommodation in peak season) and I would have a hard time recommending it to others. While the location is good and staff are friendly, the place is very unclean. I appreciate that this is a hostel but never have I stayed in a hostel before where the bathrooms weren't... More

We scored one of the two basement rooms in this hostel and basic is probably the best description. The room was clean enough and had a bed but that's it. The kitchen was filthy, but the bathroom is pretty clean and it's very well located and easy to find from Gojozuku bus stop. Close to Kyoto station and the Gion... More

This hostel is close to subway and Gion areas. Staff was very friendly. We stayed in the top floor but the room was a little bit smelly. Basement rooms would be worse. Shared bathroom and toilet were clean. Will not stay again.

Positive: - easy to get to and well located for visiting southern Higashiyama and Gion areas. Other areas easily accessible by bus or bike - if you ask for info or help the lady at reception is very friendly and helpful - lots of books and stuff to exchange or take - friendly atmosphere - real kitchen facilities A note...

This was a great little one-night stopover for my family and, for the price, we could have easily stayed here longer if there was availability. The room was clean, cosy and large enough and we didn't at all mind making up our own futons. The shared toilet and bathroom facilities were just fine. We didn't use the communal kitchen and...

I think people need to remember that this is a HOSTEL not a hotel. You're supposed to cook, clean and occupy yourself - imagine a student house. The staff were friendly and really helpful for travel and directions. All of them speak English and there are big maps and helpful tips all around. It's in a great central location and... More

The staff here were nice, the location is pretty decent (although I think the directions from the subway could be much better written), and of course the value is great. There are no beds here, you are given a fold up mattress which you make up yourself but I didn't find this too much of a bother and it's what... More

This is the cutest hotel I ever been! It is like a "home" I always dream about!! It smells like tree and straw inside. There are small stickers everywhere, like "free to take" on the shelf with origami swans and many others. The neighbourhood is very calm and quiet (and beautiful). I expected less for this price.

Peace house is a vey nice hostel. There is a lot of space comparing to the other japanese places. We were sleeping on traditional tatami mats. The staff was helpfull and the kitchen well equipped. Everything was clean and tidy.
