Loved the living room. Spacious and very nice designed with a nice terrace. Friendly and helpful staff. Had a nice stay at the K'house. I like the wooden bunk beds as they make less noise as the metall ones when someone is moving.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better bed to lay your tired, backpack-bruised body. Honestly, it's like sleeping in a cloud, so comfy and warm that I was even willing to take the top bunk (which I normally hate). Plug points for every bed too for easy phone or laptop recharging. And the bathrooms! I normally enjoy a trip to the toilet anyway, but at K's House, they take things to the Next Level. Brilliant facilities and very sweet, helpful, chatty staff MADE my stay in Kyoto.

Great hostel with a smoking lounge disguised as a bar right at the ground floor. They should check the bicycles more often. Most of the rides they are renting for the day are death traps. And this is coming from someone who uses a bicycle a lot.

The front desk staff were incredibly helpful - giving directions, making dinner reservations, calling cabs for us, and giving recommendations of things to do. Good place to meet people and the hostel has a bar inside but it's definitely a more mellow vibe than other party hostels. The rooms were quite and place was clean. Highly recommend staying there. Close to main train station too and they have bikes you can rent.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at K's House. The shower rooms were great, with an area to keep your clothes dry, bathmats, and shampoo, conditioner and bath gel provided. The laundry room was handy (free detergent), bike rental, comfortable room. The Wi-Fi was temperamental, and there were a few families staying on the same floor as us with crying babies, which wasn't a problem, just wasn't expected! The breakfast was decent (you can do better elsewhere), however the mango slushies are divine!

I enjoyed my stay, the staff were very helpful. An instant boiling water dispenser is great in hostels. Felt that the terrace off the lounge could be available from 07h00 to 23h00, instead of 08h00 to 22h00.

I came here with my friend and it was honestly the best holiday we've had! The hostel was a big part of our trip, the place was convenient and easy to get to and the staff were super nice and friendly. We made so many friends with travelers and staff in the short time we stayed and we would definitely go to a K's Hostel again. Thank you for making our Golden Week vacation a great one :)
