Special experience to stay at traditional Japanese-style bedroom. We stayed at family room with 4 pax, it was quite packed with limited space after we moved in our luggage, we learnt to set-up Japanese Futon by our own, it was fun. Overall, the hostel is clean & tidy, the staffs are helpful & friendly to assist us. They provide a... More

Our family of 4 stayed at Gojo Annex for 4 night and it was a great base for us in Kyoto. The staff and other guests were full of friendly advice and their tips were really useful. The room we had was generous by Japanese standards, the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of windows so we could enjoy... More

Great place, if your looking for something adorable. Very clean authentic Japanese house. Excellent location for exploring Kyoto. Most importantly though, the staff was great, helpful, knowledgable, and friendly. I recommend picking up a day bus pass at the reception desk, and stopping at the near by 3232 caffe for a great espresso, as a morning routine.

We stayed at Gojo Guest House Annexe for three nights, and we had a wonderful time. As other reviewers have mentioned, the staff were very kind, friendly and helpful. We arrived late at night, and even though we had been unable to contact the guest house to tell them we were running later than planned (our mobile phone credit ran... More

The staff here are very possibly the nicest staff I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. They advised us on our itinerary, they gave us weather / blossom forecasts for where we were going, they chatted with us using exceptional English and generally made us feel so welcome that by the end of our week-long stay we were...

We stayed 3 nights at this guest house. The location is very convenient, a short bus ride from Kyoto station and walking distance to Gion area. The room for two was lovely, Japanese style. The kitchen was really clean and practical. There is also a small lounge with TV where you can eat and free wifi. The only 2 downs... More

I stayed at this guest house for 3 nights in the room for 3 in Japanese style. The place is the old Japan house located in the heart of Kyoto. Transport to this place is so easy and not so far from Kyoto station. I stayed during January and the weather is extremely cold and they provided us a heater.... More

It's located within walking distance (cross the road and continue straight on) from Kyumizo-dera temple and a slightly longer walk (15 minutes) into the central area.

This is an interesting little place, with cute rooms and very friendly staff. We stayed in a traditional Japanese room, with no bathroom, a couple of futons for beds and a low table. Not the most comfortable arrangement but it's worth a try if only for a night. It feels like you are transported in time. The showers and the... More

I've been traveling for a year, staying at everything from super fancy places to places where you share a bathroom with the entire hotel, which this place is, but for what it is I have zero complaints. Clean, comfy, adorable rooms with great little touches (desks, built ins, bamboo lamps). It is VERY bare bones however - there are no... More
