I have stayed at Uno House a few times. I was living in Kyoto but in the countryside. Uno House was a great place to sleep after going out drinking in the city. It is an easy walk to Kiyamachi Street and there is no curfew. I usually got back there at 4 or 5am. I slept heavily for 5... More

This hostel/house is not going to win any beauty awards but it was clean and quiet enough for one night. The complaints I've seen here are fair - I do not disagree with any of them (except maybe the claims that it is not clean) - but I think some expectations were set way too high. Kyoto is a VERY...

Fortunatelly my friend and I only stayed here one night, so it was fine though I highly do not recommand it for more. First thing when we arrived the stairs wre very straight very dangerous to climb with heavy suitcase, not to say almost impossible. Then one thing thqt was pretty disturbing were those papers hanging out on the walls... More

Uno House is a disheveled, scruffy old house. Which I think would probably be a deathtrap in a fire. But when I did visit there I met other friendly scruffy freewheeling easy going backpackers, and I enjoyed myself. If you fit this description you will be satisfied enough. Also there is effectively no curfew because the side door is always... More

I make it simple: We in the morning, wanting to stay 3 nights. After we saw our private room, me and my friend where shocked. Nevertheless, we tried to make our best at first. But soon we figured out how terrible it is! There was a dog making weird noises. (Seems like he was strangled to death) and, AC didn'... More

I'll make it simple; stay here and have a terrible holiday where you'll experience everything that is NOT Japan. The owners are truly obnoxious, and that is being generous. The place is decrepit and hazardous to the health. It is not cheap, in fact having to pay to stay here is a joke, I wouldn't stay here if they offered... More

We had a Japanese friend make the reservation for us. The owner told him that we would get a private "traditional tatami" room with a bathroom and a/c. It was very cheap compared to what we had seen and we were really excited to be there. As we arrived I immediately got a bad feeling about the place : It... More

This place is to be avoided. It's disgusting appearance shows there is little interest diplayed by the owner to maintain it. The hostel is a rabbit warren of rooms with no windows and no air circulation. A hazard to health! It is also a fire hazard with the narrow, and difficult to navigate corridors. 2 showers only, for up to... More

We discovered Uno House a few years ago with a friend and loved the atmosphere, the dingy but old dorms and made lots of friends with the staff. Over the years it has gone up and down, the owner is not always friendly but I still think that it's a place that has a soul. Anyway a great place to... More

This was the worst hostel I have ever been to and I have been staying in many hostels over the past 11 months since I have been travelling the world. The owners want to charge you for absolutely everything and do not tell you until it is too late. We had an unfortunate run-in with the owners who wanted us... More
