A-yado Gion is in such a great location. It is on a quiet street close to the beautiful Gion area, and is a few minutes away from some of the busier streets of Kyoto. The staff was super friendly and told me which places I should visit over my three-day stay. Their common room was a great place to meet new people, and even had beer and snacks to purchase (at a very affordable price), to save me from having to walk to the shops. Overall I had a very pleasant stay.

I stayed at this guesthouse one night. It wasn't what I expected for the money I paid. The bed shits were not clean and the bed are really small. The staff is good and helpful but busy. There is a nice living room but the things is that it's upstairs.

Thank you for your comment. You said " I will put a good review on the HostelWorld if you give me a discount" when you checked in. But we didn't give you any discount, so you put a bad review. It is not fair and rude to negotiate for getting for a discount in Japan. We hope you will not do like that at other hostel.

It's in a pretty good location considering it's on the same street to Gion area (south of hostel) where Geisha perform for tourists. The staff keeps up with the maintenance and is most helpful and friendly. The common area is on the 5th floor. Very neat and cozy up there with a nice big TV. They have free coffee and tea, but no pots and pans. I met some new socializing friends there to gather ideas for Kyoto itinerary. Con: Room full of sleeping bunkmates can make the room humid and stuffy.

Pros: Great location, lovely staff. Cons: Size of dorms ridiculous, kitchen is a joke (nothing to cook with or space to do so), breakfast included: 1piece of toast per person with only margarine to spread & instant coffee, no sort of atmosphere what so ever. Anyways, ok spot to sleep. That's about it. Keep your expectations low.

An amazing hostel that has everything you need at an affordable price! The common room has manga, a T.V., and snacks and beer to buy which makes meeting other guests here, a breeze! The receptionists are friendly and make a relaxing, easy-going environment for your stay. Furthermore, the hostel is in the heart of Gion; the famous Geisha district of Kyoto! You are surrounded by historic old streets, quirky Izakayas, and all the cultural charm Kyoto has to offer! I will be back! Thank you!

Good place in a nice location. The athmosfere is relaxed, dorm rooms have many beds but curtains do help to have a little privacy.

A-yado was an awesome place to stay. The staff were great and very helpful. The location was excellent. The room can feel a little crowded when full, but still comfortable. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone and would definitely stay again.
