Hostelworld says:

Backpackers Hostel K's House Kyoto is located less than 10 minutes' walk from JR Kyoto station and is about 20 minutes' walk to the Gion District. Hostelworld guests frequently praise this clean and modern hostel's 'friendly and cosy' atmosphere and the 'incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly' staff who 'are willing to take the time out to help you get to wherever you want to be and will even Google Map and help book places.' We like their rooftop terrace with a view over the city. It's no wonder this was rated the best large hostel chain at the 2011 Hoscars!

    I think what makes us special is that we really try to provide a quality experience for our guests. We have movie nights every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and we have tons of items available to rent for free from reception, including iPhone chargers, padlocks, guidebooks, adaptors, DVDs and games (cards, Uno, board games, etc).
    I hear from our guests a lot about what they like about our hostel, and it's our clean rooms with self-locking doors, the friendly staff and the cross-cultural experience of meeting other guests in the spacious common lounge.
    Our hostel is suitable for all types of travellers, from solo travellers to families to groups.

    This is honestly the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It was extremely clean. The double room was pretty large with an amazing view of the city and a full western bed that was made. Whenever I stay in a hostel, I don't keep high expectations, but this FAR exceeded any. I would actually recommend this over a hotel any day.

    Fantastic hostel, more of a budget hotel. Staff were so helpful, rooms were clean, lots of space, good value. Close to Kyoto station, not hard to find. A little far from some of the big sites, but not by much. Highly recommend it.
