The location is great. The best place to stay if you want to spend a night in Gion, which I think, should everyone do if you are staying for a few days in Kyoto. The staff are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here.

Great location and friendly staff. We loved Kyoto and this hostel was the perfect one between price and comfort. If you want some great okanamyaki when you turn left from Tully's coffee it has a red sign that says just 2 words okanamyako and tepponyaki she has been in that site for 20 years her name is K the food was great and both her and her son were a laugh.

Excellent location and nice staff! The dorm was a bit cramped, but somehow I managed with my huge bags

Had a great stay. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Very clean, they were always coming in cleaning the dorms. Lockers were small for valuables. Showers were hot and strong. Common room to meet people. Hot water was provided and snacks can be purchased for ¥100 yen. Washing machine and powder is free to use. Beds were comfy and curtains provided comfortable privacy. Cheap comfortable and worth while.

It's in a great location, lovely helpful staff, clean and safe. They give you a free slice of bread [rather thick] in the morning so it's the only hostel I've seen giving you some sort of breakfast. You won't find a cheaper hostel in Kyoto, well worth the money and more.

Really great location by the old Gion district- we saw two Geishas just walking back in the evening. Close by bars, restaurants and temples, 15m to main station. Super clean and great blankets- provided privacy w/curtains on the bunks. Shower located in the female dorm. Gave a nice slice of bread for breakfast for free. Could purchase snacks, noodles and beer in the lounge

A-Yado was a great choice for Kyoto. Location was fantastic-- a few blocks away from the historic Gion district and not far away from the main strips of bars and and restaurants. Staff was amazing and helpful (shout out to Masa!) and the dorms were clean and even though packed with beds, had a sense of privacy due to the curtains. The lounge was nice. The owners stack the fridge and surrounding area with beer and snacks and you can take whatever you need and leave some money in a tin. A+.

Location was perfect, staff were very friendly and helpful, and although the hostel was small it was in good condition and clean. The locker was big enough for me to fit a couple valuable items, but anyone who wishes to lock up something larger (like a laptop) should be willing to either leave it in the dorm with other people or commit to carrying it around with them. Would definitely stay here again if I get the chance to come to Kyoto again.

Great price, small but plenty of people visiting. We would hang out in the morning and evening on the 5th floor, having a cup of tea or can of beer (stocked by the hostel, very cheap). Staff was top notch, really loved it!

Great cheap hostel. The staff were very friendly and the cozy lounge and kitchen make meeting people easy. Everything was clean and the location is the best in the city. Right in the middle of the Gion District, with lots of restaurants, pubs, clubs, shops, and Geisha. There are a couple temples and a shrine really close by. There is a bike rental place very close; which, is the best way to get around to all the different temples, shrines etc.
