Had a very comfortable stay at K's House in Kyoto. The hostel is kept incredibly clean, with updated carpets and new bed linens, etc. While some of the rooms can be on the small side (especially the 4 bed dorms), most are a good size. All dorm beds include individual outlets and reading light on the headboard as well as... More

We stayed in our own private room with private bathroom on the 6th floor. The room was bright and cheerful and the bed comfortable and large for Japanese standard. Two massive windows surrounding the bed overlooking the city with a sheer drop below - very cool. Felt very spacious with the windows despite there being no room on the floor... More

If you need a place to stay, this is a fine place. I barely spent time here - apart from sleeping the night after wandering around Kyoto doing various things. The staff are pretty helpful here. The rooms aren't well laid out and there's a bit of wasted space.

I've heard a lot about this chain. Booked their Kyoto hostel, and wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff, and a superb I house bar. The morning breakfast at 700 yen for unlimited food was a life saver. We stayed in a private room. It was a tad small, but the bed was really comfortable. They have two common rooms, the newer one... More

BUT: if you're looking for a cool and unique backpackers place you're wrong. to me it felt more like a hotel than a hostel. extremely clean, very friendly but because of... More

We booked this place because we really enjoyed the hostel in Ito, but when we got here, we were extremely disappointed. The rooms were stinky and you can smell people smoking. On the plus side, there seemed to be lots of private rooms and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Plus they have a cool rooftop terrace, but again... More

Brilliant location, friendly staff, clean rooms and sheets. I stayed in a mixed dorm the first night and then changed to female dorm for the rest of my stay. The common room is really cool and made some great friends there. The staff were really helpful and spoke good English and helped out with how to get to places.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
