Although the guesthouse is a little bit of a hike from the Kyoto station (~35 min walk, or a 15 min cab ride), it's well worth it for it's location. Easy access to most sites within the Higashiyama districts on the eastern side of the city, and is close to public transit so you can get elsewhere. My brother and... More

A nice hostel with helpful staff. The environment and atmosphere was really nice and japanese. They had their own cozy bar with nice music. Only thing missing was the people. But a great place to stay.

he location is ok, not far to from downtown and close to some of the main temples. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a rather small guesthouse so you won't find a buzzing atmoshphere. The walls are thin like in most of the traditional Japanese guesthouses. It seems obvious that you should be quiet when you're in the... More

Let me just start off by saying this place was amazing for us. I stayed here during my trip to Japan in September. I was travelling with 4 other friends, and we stayed in a twin and triple room for 5 nights here. It's super cheap, and we had no problems whatsoever. It is a hostel, so if you aren't... More

Staff: Extremely friendly and talkative. The staff there helped me plan my day in Kyoto and even shared their guide book! Guesthouse: Pretty old Machiya style house, but... More

I spent 2 nights in a single room at Gojo Annex. The room was pretty small, but price was great when you compare it to single rooms in other guesthouses in Kyoto at peak season. Staff was very friendly and had complete proficiency in English. They were helpful in recommending places to eat in the neighborhood. Location is great, 2... More
