This was the nicest place I stayed at in Japan. The staff is super nice and supportive, everything is very clean. The location is just perfect. You can get cold water, drinks, beer, snacks, sweets and instant noodle cups for little money in the common room which is super handy. Also, you get some bread for breakfast, simple but a nice gesture!

My mates and I really enjoyed our stay at A-yado hostel. It was in a convenient location to catch the bus and see the sights that we wanted to see. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds are very comfortable, and the showers very clean. We were also glad that we could pick up our bus passes right at the hostel. My group also enjoyed chatting with our fellow travelers in the common room every night.

Incredibly surprised by this hostel! Very clean and the staff is so helpful and nice. My friend and I went to Kyoto without specific plans and when we asked them for recommendations and routes, they gave us all the info they knew! Not only that, we found out that this hostel is in the midst of the entertainment district. Definitely prime location for anyone who likes the nightlife. They give you free toast in the morning, coffee, and tea. This started our days off better than without them.

It was in a great location with so many things within walking distance. The facilities were all quite good, but I found the dorm which I was in quite claustrophobic without really any space to put my bags. I saw other dorms though and they didn't look as crowded. Aside from that though, it was a good hostel with a good common room.

We (two girls) stayed in a mixed dorm which was lovely. All the bunk beds had curtains around them which we drew when we went to bed for some privacy. The room was air conditioned so it was nice and cool for sleeping in the summer, and had 2 showers and a western style toilet in the room which was also handy. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and had great English, which was very handy for me as I don't speak Japanese.

It got the job done, it was in a great area for a reasonable price compared to others in the area, and it was in a pretty good location.

We had a very nice stay in the a-yado hostel. Since it is located in the heart of the Gion quarter there are many facilities around and also the public transport is very close. The doorm itself was very comfortable and since the beds were seperated by curtains we had some private space. Very clean and convenient bathrooms were directly in the doorm. The common room was great for meeting new people. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

Great hostel. Excellent value for Japan. Location is perfect in a nice neighborhood (Gion) near the center. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Very clean. Common room is nice with free computer. Free coffee and tea. They also sell food, snack, drinks and beer for the same price or cheaper than in the mart. Everything is tiny in this hostel, you won’t have a lot of space but its fine. Highly recommended to visit Kyoto!
