It was pretty small and the common space felt crowded easily, but it's Japan. Everything is small, haha. The beds were comfy and the shower was clean, but my roommate did find head hair on her comforter. Good enough, but not awesome.

ตำแหน่งที่พักดีมากครับ อยู่ใจกลางเกียวโต ใกล้ย่าน Gion ใกล้ศาลเจ้า วัด แหล่งช้อปปิ้ง แบบสามารถเดินไปได้ไม่นานมาก และบริเวณถนนใกล้ที่พักก็มีสวนเล็กๆ ด้วย เช้ามีกาแฟ ขนมปังแจก แต่ไม่มีครัวให้ใช้ แต่นอนรวม 10 คนอาจจะลำบากนิดๆ แต่เมื่อเทียบกับราคา คุ้มค่ามากๆ ประหยัดงบได้หลายทีเดียว

I somewhat disliked this hostel. The rooms are uncomfortable, because they are for 10 people, the beds are very small (although no squeaking beds), you don't get any space to put your stuff (other than the floor and everybody that passes kicks it, and the very small locker they provide). Most of the staff is nice and helpful, especially the girl and one of the guys in the evening shift. Next to the rooms there's a bar, and in the upper floor there's a karaoke bar (= noise). Pro: it's cheap.

Thank you for your comment. Sorry for making your stay uncomfortable. But we are very small hostel and we don't have only 10 beds dorm. We also changed bigger beds before your stay and we think the beds is not so small for most of guests. Anyway, we hope you enjoyed your stay in Japan.

This hostel was exactly what we paid for - a place to sleep. The space between the beds was extremely small and it was somewhat inconvenient that there were no individual lights for the multiple-bed room. This meant that normally the last person to wander in at night was the individual who turned off the lights. Beds were comfortable enough and there were helpful items on the bulletin for how to get to local tourist points. Staff was helpful enough.

Good value for a quick stopover. Female dorm was pretty cramped and noisy at night as the showers and sinks are located in the room and people were blow drying their hair after midnight! Beds are comfy, security good. Location is excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your comment. Well, we think that our price is one of cheapest in Kyoto. so we are glad that you liked our price. On the other hand, sorry about female dorm. The dorm is bit small and there are many people staying when you were here. That's why you thought bit cramped and noisy. We hope you will enjoy in Japan!!

I really liked this hostel. The staff is so great. They're really helpful and fun. One of them even took us to a karaoke bar one night! It was a great time! The location is excellent, just steps away from the geishas, right in Gion. Near lots of sights, restaurants, and bars. Overall highly highly recommended.

Stayed here for 4 nights, a group of girls but we stayed in a mix dorm (as it was cheaper) and met so many amazing people. The hostel cleans the room every morning however the sheets don't get changed. Rooms are a decent size and the showers are hot. Staff are friendly but not all could speak English. Great facilities, walking distance from gion and the nightlife strip. The kitchen and laundry service they provide is great and they have air con too! Good price!

It is my second time to visit Kyoto and second time to stay at A-yado. The location is very good, since it is situated right at the heart of historic Gion district. Some notable temples can be reached by walking, while a number of them can be reached by Bus no. 206 which pass by the nearest bus station. I liked the dynamics of the people staying there when I was there. I really wish I could stay longer.

Great value. Spacious common area with TV and well-stocked kitchen, they stock lots of cup noodles which can save you a trip to the convenience store. The dorms are next to a bar, so it can get loud at night which is not so good if you are a light sleeper. Nevertheless, this is a very cheap and nice place to stay.

Definitely THE BEST hostel we've stayed at in Japan and maybe even the best hostel we've stayed at during our year travelling across Australia and Asia! Placed smack bang in the middle of Kyoto' s biggest geisha district and conveniently situated for access to both JR and subway trains. The staff here were awesome, so friendly and willing to show us all the hidden gems in Kyoto and for the rest of our stay in Japan. Stay here if you want a ridiculously cheap room rate, with a great atmosphere!
