We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights during our trip across Japan and it was a good choice. At a 5 minute walk from the main Kyoto station, this place is easy to locate (excellent directions provided in the email). The staff is friendly and helpful at all times. The hostel has a Zen Cafe on the ground floor... More

I would 100% reccomend K`s House to anyone visiting Kyoto. It has a number of great features; Location/ Its very close to Kyoto Station, about a 5 minute walk so is perfect for finding when you have just arrived and also means day trips from kyoto are very easy. Also when walking around the tower next to the station acts... More

Good place, even though it is located a bit far from the Kyoto main station (about 10 mins walking distance). But it is near to the Keihan Railway Shichijo Station (about 3-5mins walking distance) especially if you are travel from Osaka or you are plan to use the Osaka-Kyoto Keihan 1-Day pass). They have a good bar type restaurant in... More

Stayed here for five nights and the overall experience was good. The staff speak rather fluent English and are friendly. They have maps and recommendations for the area. I visited during the hanami period and they had specially prepared for that period. Breakfast buffet is good and the overall amenities are good too. The staff really try to help you.... More

We stayed in a double room and it was very clean however a bit small with bags and stuff in there. However we weren't in it much as there so much to do in Kyoto. All the staff were very helpful and you can rent numerous things at reception including bikes which were very cheap for the day. Food was... More

I stayed there for two days and I found it really good! The beds are comfortable, the environment is good and the staffs are really nice. All rooms are clean and organized. There is no free parking lot, but for the ones who need it, there is a paid parking lot near the guesthouse. I really recommend this place!
