We stayed one night. Clean, nice staff, good place to sleep, difficult to foster social environment cause of limited space and layout. Directions to hostel were very vague and could be more precise.

Thank you for your comment. Well, we have small hostel and we don't have much space. But some people enjoy this limited space. Also we always send the direction by e-mail 10 days before the guests arrive. We hope you will enjoy in Japan!!

Friendly and helpful staff. Forgot to mention to them that I cannot access their website from abroad, it says "403 Forbidden, I do not have permission to access". Thank you so much for the help we received during our stay. It is a very warm hostel.

We had a very good stay in this hostel. Very friendly and helpfull staff. We stayed here only for one night (because of a festival the hostel was booked out for the other days) but we could leave our luggage here for three days! This was very convenient because we did not have to carry our heavy luggage all the time. Very good location in Gion.

Average for a hostel, but good enough for a place to sleep. The staff was awesome and it was pretty easy to get to. Mixed dorm was a bit cramped, could use 1 less bed. Showers and bathrooms were clean, the bed however, not so much.

This place is great. The lounge and cheap beers allowed us to meet some great people and all the guide books available to read were a great way for us to find some hidden delights around Kyoto. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. It's a little small in the bedrooms, but hey it's Japan. To be honest I don't know why this rating isn't higher. I recommend it and hope you get a great crew of people staying with you.

Good location and was really fun people there. Beds are the most comfortable I've slept in in Asia. Only annoyance is the sinks and showers are in the 10 bed dorm, feels like you're causing a lot of noise to so many people at night when you need to brush your teeth or shower.

This was really an amazing hostel, I had a very good and pleasant stay here. The staff was incredibly nice, the location was perfect, cause you're close to a station and in the middle of a lot of amazing sights and the room was very clean and the showers had hot water and were also very clean. Best value for money I ever fot so far. I have already booked another stay in this hostel, so I can definitely say that I'm a satisfied customer.

Not that secure, didn't have to use my key once during my stay. Mixed dorm room a bit cramped, would definitely be better with one bunk bed less in that room. Staff is nice. Common room is nice. Location is good.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment. Also thank you for giving us an advice. Well, we always tell the guests to use the keys. Also we check the room several times a day. so we try to do some things for security. We hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan!!

Close to all temples and gesha district. Beds are big and showers good. Hostel could do a few organised activities or have suggestions on sites.

The density of the bed in a room is really high. It's not really comfortable to me.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment. We have only 10 beds dormitory. We think if you feel crowed in the room, you'd better to stay a private room. There are many hostel in Kyoto. You can find your favorite one.

Although the very poor security (there was a key for the room's door, but I never understood wen to use it since the door was always open) the hostel il very good. I would suggest to add some obscurating panels in the girls room, because there's nothing and in the morning le light is incredibly strong since it's at 3rd floor

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment. Well, normary the guests use the key for room during 1am to 7am. Because our stuff always stay at reception from 7am to 1am. Also thank you for giving us your suggestion. We wll think about that. We hope we will see you again!!

Located in a great spot for sightseeing and exploring hidden restaurants. Nice staff- gave an amazing ramen restaurant recommendation. I had an issue with the noise from the various bars located in the same building. We were in the 4th floor dorm and made the mistake of choosing the beds closest to the front window. It was boiling hot as the air conditioner is located at the other side of the room. Overall, a good place to meet people and an unbeatable location!

Very nice staff, perfect location in the heart of the Geisha district, close to two of the main subway lines. Too bad the hostel shares the same building with a bar and a karaoke bar, it's quite noisy all night long...we had a great stay there anyway, and i'd highly recommend A-Yado Gion to everybody who wants to stay in downtown Kyoto without spending a fortune on it!
