I arrived in kyoto without accommodation booked til night before and all hotels etc were taken so found this hostel as near the station and looked nice enough in the pics. Now, I've stayed at many many hostels in my 20s so it's been about 5 years or so for my last visit as I only do hotels now but... More

I've stayed at few hostels around the world and this is my favorite. I've stayed here for weeks at a time in two different years and it almost feels like staying with familiy. It's modern, clean, friendly, etc, etc. Love the little restaurant next to it as well, especially the breakfast buffet. Would come back here again any time.

We stayed at this hostel twice (3 nights in total) and had different experiences both times. Positives: - friendly/helpful English speaking staff - good communal facilities (bathrooms etc) - good bar and ok breakfast buffet - good location near station (10 minutes walk) Negatives: - very small rooms (adequate size for sleeping but not for comfort) - double bed ground...

I stayed at the miced 4-bed dorm with 2 friends last week and find the pricing we have paid is of great value. The hostel is easy to locate from Kyoto train station, clean and well organised and most importantly, plenty of helpful English speaking staffs. There are plenty of bath and toilets on each floor and you need not... More

After staying in k's house Tokyo I had high expectations. I am please to say these were met! The dorm rooms are clean and comfy. The toilet and showers conveniently only a room away. The rooms are incredibly secure; there is a key card to get in and massive lockers under each bed big enough to store any size of... More

Travelling with 2 teenage daughters we had our first experience of hostel accommodation in K's House. We stayed in 2 adjacent double rooms with ensuites. While the rooms were compact, they had what we needed- a bed that was comfortable, a bathroom/linen, free wifi, space to open our luggage easily. The common areas were well stocked-large kitchen with several fridges,... More

The location is not far from Kyoto station. When we arrived from Tokyo using Willer Express very early in the morning, it took us 15 minutes by walking to reach the hostel. If you want to travel within Kyoto, it only takes 5 minutes to reach the nearest bus stop. The hotel itself quiet big. The communal room and kitchen... More

This is my second time at K's House Kyoto. The hostel is set up in two adjacent buildings (I have stayed in both). This is a large, Western-style facility that appeals to young backpackers, middle-age travelers and families. There are plenty of common areas, a cafe (serves breakfast) and more than enough bathrooms/showers - all are very clean. The dorm... More

This is the best and very low cost hotel to stay in Kyoto. You can also book room by calling them on land line number. Very friendly staff and they can speak English as well. Overall a very good place. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
