Great hostel with a large social space which welcomes all guests. Staff are friendly and helpful. Bonus points for having the reception close at 3am

The big hostel has great facilities such as laundry, well equipped kitchen, bathrooms etc. It is a huge hostel, so if you are looking for something very cozy you might want to go to another hostel. We liked to stay there in general and would recommend it.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at K's House. They were very accommodating when we had to change some of our plans as well as storing our luggage for us before/after check-in/out. Staff were very helpful answering questions. The facility was very clean and surprisingly quiet. We stayed in one of the double private rooms. The only time there was any noise was when people were out on the 2nd floor balcony talking (we were on the 4th floor). The view from the roof was great too.

Best bostel in Kyoto.

Only stayed here for one night, so hard to get a good feel of the place. Had problems with A/C temperature control not working (too cold! Then too hot!). Bathrooms also didn't make sense - only two showers for an entire floor? Kitchen was fine and room was fine otherwise.

This is the seventh time I've stayed at K's house in Kyoto. It's an excellent hostel, never lets me down, and is always my go to for any city they have a branch in, but their hostel in Kyoto is a cut above the rest. Clean, great facilities and staff, and really good Cafe/bar with breakfast buffet every morning (for a reasonable price and goes until noon!)

The breakfast buffet was a bit expensive for the quality.

organized hostel, very clean and great facilities! the rooftop had a great view of the tower, tand he moutainsides. Also, the staff was extremely helpful with where to go. The bar/cafe attached to the hostel was great touch. The only downside of the hostel was the bathroom air. It was very muggy and hot when we used it, it was really uncomfortable because the weather was really hot outside as well.

This hostel is extremely big and not ideal for meeting co travellers. However, the staff is nice and the facilities are extremely clean, so it has great value for money. Located near public transit, it's good for getting around as well. Note that you can rent a bike for little money, and that might be very helpful in Kyoto.

The hostel was quite good overall. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well-furnished. However, there was a very bad foot smell at the entrance and a bad smell in the bathroom/shower area. Moreover, we felt like the showers could use some scrubbing (they were a bit moldy). Other hostels we went to in Japan did not have this problem. Other than that is was fine.

Okay stay but will not return for sure. 1st impression was "smelly", probably because the shoe cabinets are right at the entrance. Toilet smells as well. Washing machine/dryer are problematic (if you dont mind paying a bit more, i suggest going out to the laundry shop just outside of the hostel - turn left at main road). Staff was not the most helpful with rather inapt knowledge about the facilities they provide and in terms of direction giving.

Stayed for 2 nights at K's House Kyoto. Strategic location, near from the bus stop and the nearest subway. Bed's and shower room cleanliness is superb. Staffs were amazing and super nice. Definitely will going back there if i'm going back to Kyoto

Great place and staffs. Not really near from station, around 15-20 minutes of walking with baggage. Really tight security, so tight that it's uncomfortable.

A great hostel, located not too far from Kyoto station. The staff were very knowledgeable about the local sightseeing spots and the facilities were very clean and comfortable. However the breakfast food in the attached cafe isn't worth it. Go and eat out in the local places nearby!

The aircon kept turning itself permanently off so every hour we'd wake up sweating. That was the only negative of the whole stay

I definitely would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Kyoto. Its easy to find staff are helpful and above all they are very easy to talk too. I will be using K's House each time I stay in Kyoto and anywhere in Japan they are in my opinion one of the best hostel companies that I have had the pleasure of using.
