I had a pleasant three night stay at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are extremely comfortable and its in a fantastic location. The wifi was good most of the time. However the room is very tight, you had to crawl over people's luggage to get out. Also, they say they provide free breakfast but... More

This hostel was great! The beds were comfortable and the place seemed really clean. Staff was very nice and helpfull. The hostel has a great location in historical Gion, and is therefore situated close to several of the main attractions in Kyoto. You get a small breakfast included, and you also get free tee or coffee whenever. And best of... More

The hostel itself was fine, lovely staff who are very friendly, decent beds and lounge area. The room I was in had the sinks inside the actual bedroom, so I would often be woken up by the sound of people brushing their teeth. The overall atmosphere is nice, but most of the other guests come in at all hours of... More

It has a great location and access, only 5min walk to the bus station and convi store, about 10min walk to the train station, near to kiyomizudera temple and down town (kawaramachi). And you can just walk around to meet geisha, because gion is the famous location of them (but It's pretty hard to find them actually). There are also... More

The staff here was extremely friendly, and the tightly-packed beds were warm and cozy. It was generally perfect for any short-term guests or backpackers passing through. The hostel was very conveniently located and well-priced, and I absolutely recommend it.

Great value for money because it is so cheap. The female dorm is a bit cramped but the mixed dorm was a lot more spacious. Small common room on the top floor with computers. A place with more secure luggage storage after checking out would be great.

I stayed in the female dorm and, I can't deny it, the space is tiny. However, I stayed for two nights and could have stayed for a couple more. It does get a little cramped. But you deal with so many situations in dorms, this is hardly the worst. The besa were clean and comfy. Showers in the dorm. Staff... More

Staying in Gion

Neighborhood Profile
Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
