My partner, a friend and myself travelled to Kyoto to stay at this hostel in February 2015 - all up we stayed 6 night because we were so impressed. Firstly, the placement of this hostel is ideal, right in the heart of Kyoto, it is a minute walk to the Nishiki Market and a main shopping plaza as well as... More

I was recommended this hostel by a friend who had stayed at Khaosan in Tokyo and I am so glad I took her advice. The dorms consist of sturdy cubicle-style beds with curtains so you get much more privacy than hostels with normal bunk beds. Bathroom facilities are clean and shampoo/soap is available. We didn't make much use of the... More

The location of this hostel is great. It’s walking distance to Gion, and you can take the bus anywhere you want to. The staff is super nice, and they have a great wall of recommended restaurants with pictures which is very helpful. They have a bar downstairs and a movie theater. It a pretty cool place to hang out and... More

I was staying at an ordinary ryokan in Kyoto when I happened to stumble upon this place (I actually thought it was a Theater with regular shows etc so I went in to have peek) Suddenly I was met by the most warm and welcoming smile of the staff. Wow what a lovely surprise. They are totally organised for folks... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in a mixed dorm. We had so much fun! All the guests were social and friendly, the facilities were clean and warm and the location is perfect. Near the river, surrounded by great restaurants and shopping. Thanks so much guys!

It just closes Nishiki market(錦市場) and shinkyogoku shopping street(新京極) around 5 min walk. Travelers can go any attractions conveniently by bus, JR or metro from this hostel. The staff is really nice here. The bed and utilities are clean as well. Khaosan Kyoto Theater is the top one hostel that I recommend in Kyoto.

This is without a doubt the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's big, has good facilities, cheap laundry, a clean kitchen with free tea/coffee and lovely staff. The dorms are capsule style and really nice with comfortable beds and huge lockers for both big bags and shoes in your room and the showers are really hot with good... More
