K's house in Kyoto is really first class. Like most hostes we used in Japan the rooms were small but they were clean and had a tv in each room (with BBC). There are shared male/female bathrooms/showers on each floor but they were clean and modern. There are lots of places to congregate and hang out in this hostel. There... More

Great place to enjoy Kyoto. Its not far from the train station and a little ways from all the attractions. The rooms and travelers were very quaint. Bathrooms seemed to be cleaned on the regular. I would recommend renting a bike from here or the essentric man who owns the bike rental place around the corner and explore Kyoto

If you are looking for budget accommodation in Kyoto, close to the train station I definitely recommend this hostel. For a hostel it's extremely clean and well organized. Rooms are nice and comfortable, there is a very nice communal area and decent kitchen. Staff is helpful, they organize activities as well and there is a bar/restaurant connected to the hostel....

This was just a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Kyoto. We were lucky to travel during the off season so we were able to walk in and have a room, however this is not recommended. This place fills up quick so it is best to book this in advance! The amenities and the services that they provide... More

I don't usually rate 5/5, even if the place might actually deserve it. It takes realism out of the review, at least partially. I do not trust in 5/5 review myself, and therefore do not do it. However, this is, occasionally, wrong. This hostel, for me, was 5/5. Period. What do you ask for a hostel to be 5/5? Good... More

I found this hostel is great and value for money. All staff so friendly and helpful and 10 minutes walk to JR station. Free wifi so fast and cleanliness in room was perfect. The room is bigger than I expected. All in all perfect place for budget hostel.

Friendly guests, knowledgeable and helpful staff, strategic location just about 10 min walk from kyoto station. Near a lot of dining place and offer a good buffet breakfast price too. The room is clean, the bathroom is clean and well kept. I used their tab "onsen" in second floor and it was fantastic! Definitely Value for money.

We stayed at K's House Kyoto for three nights in February. Convenient location; a ten minute walk from Kyoto station with popular bus routes very close by. Our twin room, like the rest of the hostel, was always clean. This hostel is quite energetic and lively with people coming in and out all the time. Check in was efficient but... More
