The property location is very convenient, only 5-8 min walk from Kyoto Station. From the station, you can easily take metro, JR and buses to different scenic spots in Kyoto. The property is clean and there is a big common area and self-kitchen on 2F. The private ensuite room could be better if there is enough space for 2 suitcases. All the others are great!

Everything is good except for the dryer, which seems cannot dry clothes.

Everything was excellent except the showers bit. Very homely atmosphere. K's House Kyoto was comfortable and extremely value for money. Only thing was the showers, the water temperature kept alternating between hot and extremely cold water even though I had adjusted the temperature to be warm. That made taking a shower a little bit difficult. Other than that everything else was excellent and I really did enjoy my stay there! :)

ถือว่าเหมาะสมกะราคา ไม่แคบอย่างที่คิด สะอาด พนักงานช่วยเหลือดีมากมีน้ำใจ แต่เดินไกลจากสถานีเกียวโต ก็คิดว่าเดินชมบ้านเมืองเค้าละกันค่ะ แม้จะพักmix dormแต่ก็เหมือนprivate เพราะแกงส์เราเหมายกห้อง สรุปคือ ดีที่ถูก สะอาด เสียที่ เดินไกลเตรียมกำลังขาไปด้วยค่ะ

My boyfriend and I enjoyed staying at the hostel, although we didn't stay very long. While not unusual it would have been nice to have a padlock provided for luggage (although it felt safe). Although we were staying in a dorm it didn't seem like it was too easy to meet people, the hostel was pretty quiet - which in a way was good for sleeping. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Awesome hostel - super clean, awesome location, great staff, comfortable - there really isn't anything to complain about. Can't really go wrong staying at this hostel.

Amazing hostel with fantastic amenities, including rooftop patio! Found it strange however that this hostel was more like a hotel than a hostel: full families with children were staying there which took away from the backpacker atmosphere. Nonetheless, I would recommend this hostel because of it's cleanliness, staff, security, and amenities.

The washing machine and the cloth dryer are broken,finding a laundromat nearby is a better solution and it's waste your time waiting for them getting fixed.

I've stayed at K's house Kyoto 4 times now and multiple times at other K's houses. The first time was before the new section was built and that was the best. I feel like since the new part was built the hostel has lost a lot of the charm that draws me to Ks house, which is the atmosphere and staff. Because the hostel is so big now there doesn't seem to be the ability to meet new people as easily. Maybe if you were to put more activities on? The movie night didn't even run the time we were there.

Great hostel - love k's! Nice rooms nice location. Big reception with a lot of staff ready to help you. Restaurant right next to the reception with nice breakfast buffet. Bit confusing and annoying when you have to change rooms, so book in advance to avoid that :)

Very clean, nice staff and good common areas but somehow hardly any interaction with other people.. people seemed to be in groups (families, couples, groups of friends) and in no need to mingle ór in need to check their mobiles the entire evening. Perhaps organising some joined activities would be a good idea (there was supposed to be a movie nights but I never saw a movie running...)?
