Late night smokers world be smoking in the outdoor smoking area and TALKING and talking at2.00am..The city is quiet but we were woken for two nights. If smokers can smoke silently OK , if not, NO SMOKING after ten p.m.. If they can fly to Japan, no smoking on a plane, they can wait a fewhours for daylightdaylight.

We loved staying here, we did not come into any problems at all and the staff were willing to help with any questions we had! We were there for 3 nights and the room was the perfect size (twin for 2 people). We also hired bikes for a day that was great value and we also enjoyed the pancakes for breakfast!

The common area on level 2 and the elevator tends to smell of raw fish at night

Love all K's hostel branches. Love the consistency between them all. The one in Kyoto is slightly bigger and has a cafe next door which is handy for those who want their fix of western food but don't want to travel far and wide. The showering facilities were great - very clean and spacious as always. The common area and kitchen were lovely. They also had a movie room which has screenings every other day. Super sociable. Also great for families. Staff were very helpful.

Stuffs are friendly. BUT the room smells bad, I even need to set the bedding bag by myself. By the way,the location is a bit too far from the railway station.

It's only about a 10 minute walk to Kyoto Station which is great. Very clean. Good wifi. The staff are extremely knowledgable. You can buy bus passes at the front desk. There is a bar/cafe connected to it. Has a great breakfast buffet. If I go back to Kyoto I'll probably stay there again.

Great hostel! Clean and spacious rooms and plenty of bathroom space to share between a lot of people. We really couldn't recommend this place more! A highlight for us was the communal spaces - a large and comfortable lounge room with fully-equipped kitchen, a balcony courtyard and a rooftop terrace with great views of Kyoto. Thanks K's House!
