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.

Thank you for your comment. We are very small hostel, we don't have much space to put big bags. We always ask the guests to make the bags more tidy. Anyway, we hope you enjoyed your stay in Kyoto.

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!

The hostel had a great location. Close to the Metro, bus stop, shops, nice river and not too far from some popular temples. The staff were really friendly and helpful whnwhn I arrived. There was some free bread for breakfast and it had everything that I needed. Good stay.

Probably the most well thought hostel I've been in. Very well situated, cool staff and very cool common room. Best privacy for a 10 share room (curtains to share the room around beds)

To less space for bags in the room! Nights were very loud! Could hear people talking loud at the reception!Girls started drying their hair 12.30am! Others starting whistling songs when they got up 5.30am! Could hardly get enough sleep every night! Laundry was impossible to use! Available after 6pm... To many people were waiting.. Staff was okay.. Not very talkative.. Place looks a little bit sad.. Everywhere stuff in the stair hall

Thank you for your comment. We are small hostel and only dormitly. Also we don't have a rule to use hairdryer etc...We think if you want to get enough sleep, we recommend to find a private room.

Myself and my friend stayed here for one night. It's a nice hostel and good value for the location but we did find it quite cramped. The female dorm was full when we were there and there was nowhere to put luggage and the beds are only centimetres away from each other. The room would have been fine if there was one set of bunk beds removed. That's only a small complaint though and the atmosphere is good and the staff are very friendly.
