I had a great stay here, and only left after two nights because they were full. I would have stayed for the rest of my trip to Kyoto. The hostel is great, clean, has a good common area, but the best bit is the location, right in the heart of go on and near to temples

Good sides: Cheap Good atmosphere, there are always some people in common area. Bad sides: Lockers are so small that even my camera did not fit in with its bag. So if you have a laptop definitely it will not fit in. If you give it to the reception they can keep your valuables but of course its not so comfortable. Rooms are filled up with beds so there is not enough space for putting your bed. They don't allow to stay in common room after check out.

This hostel is nicely located in the Gion district. There are bus stops, a train station and convenience stores nearby. It was a relatively peaceful hostel except when the bar and karaoke upstairs is open. The common room is pretty small and cramped. We didn't like how prices were posted almost everywhere; it made the hostel feel less personal. Overall, recommended for younger travelers.

Great hostel, excellent location in historic Gion area. Staff is very helpful and common area has a great atmosphere, they even have a Nintendo Wii!. not so good: no real kitchen for cooking and room space was quite small. We got the room next to the window and we got way too much light early morning (from 5 am). Room was a bit too hot, it was far from the air conditioning.

Location is unbeatable, in the historic heart, and just across the river from attractions in "modern" area. Also a quick walk from Kawaramachi station, for train (400 yen) to and from Osaka. Lounge area is terrific, with space to unwind, leave luggage, and coffee/tea. Dorms are crowded, but typical for this price range, and have privacy curtains. Leave luggage in rooms at your own risk - I doubt reception can keep track of who walks in and out of dorm rooms, and the lockers are very small

I was very pleased with this hostel. I stayed in the all girls room. The bed was comfortable, there were showers in the girls room and two sinks so that was convenient. Air conditioning made it really nice too. The staff were truly very helpful. I have stayed at many hostels and these people seemed the most eager to help give direction or make recommendations. Free coffee was really nice too. Location is wonderful as well.

Honestly, I was very impressed by A-yado. The location is unbeatable: directly across the street from the famed Geisha blocks. The surrounding area is similarly breath-taking, antique and beautiful, and only minutes away by foot. The price was great for the value of the location and quality of the facilities (two showers, a bathroom, two sinks, and a separate kitchen/dining room upstairs). Bunk beds were comfortable and clean, and each customer gets a small locker to store any valuables.

Very noisy, it's simply because the hostel has no whatsoever policies about polite, late hour. People just suddenly spoke out loud and don't care there are others around at midnight or 2 in the morning.

Thank you for your comment. We have only 10 beds dorm and you could have told them directly or to us about noise if you felt like that. Anyway we hope you will find nice guesthouse in Japan!
