Simply can't beat the location or the price. Great staff as well, always there to answer a question. If you are looking to stay around Gion, great option.

Great common area with free coffee and tea and also in the morning there is free Bread which you can toast upstairs in the common area. The free coffee mate included with the coffee was awesome as I do not drink black coffee. Having the snacks and noodle boxes to purchase for 150¥ was awesome too. Location was great for Geisha hunting which was a 2 to 5 min walk down the road.

This place is located in Gion which is stunning and a great spot to visit Kyoto from! The spaces are all open to the outside, which is nice since there is no curfew. However there is noise in the building early in the morning. Again there was a weird old guy who never left the lounge, and the space didn't really facilitate meeting people. Definitely clean and lovely room, but maybe not the best value for money.

A-yado Gion was a superb place to stay! The location is excellent, the staff was extremely helpful, and the dorm was comfortable. I really appreciated the little things such as reading lamps and curtains that give you a bit of privacy even though the dorm was quite small. I would stay in this place again :)

Space per person was very, very limited. As noted by others, it isn't a good place for people will large luggage. The security locker is only for small items. Everyone sleeps super early, so lights out early. On the other hand, friendly staff. Very, very nice showers. Good value for money.

Great beds!! So comfy and lots of privacy. The location is perfect as well. Not a huge atmosphere when I was there but I still enjoyed my stay. A good value for Kyoto and the whole place is kept very warm and very clean

The room may feel a bit cramped. But the location and other facilities are really great. It's situated right at the famous Gion street. Kitchen area is nice. Free coffee and tea with bread. You can buy some cup noodles and other snacks at the kitchen too. I only stayed there for a night. So can't comment much. But it has everything I needed for a night. The staff was also very friendly and took time to explain everything about the hostel in English and Japanese.
