Impeccable everything! K's House knows how it's done. They encompass the key components of a fantastic hostel experience: organized, clean, and above all, a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Can't wait to return!

I've stayed in this hostel quiet a few times before and like always, I had a great stay. Staff were extremely helpful and the rooms were clean and simple with great lockable storage under the bed. As always, it was a pleasure.

Right near the main train station, this was definitely one of the nicer hostels i've ever stayed at, massive as well. The second floor lounge and kitchen were was really a nice place to hang out as well as the rooftop. Staff were also really helpful and friendly. Facilities were really clean and and secure. No issues what so ever. Found that a lot of younger and older people stayed here in big groups as well, so be mindful of that. Would definitely stay here again.

We did not know that double twin room meant bunk beds. The AC didn't work very well in the room and we were not given towels. Location was walkable to the main regions, but still further than expected. Otherwise it was all good.

Close from the station but not as easy to find. The staff here were very friendly and will provide you with a guideline of what you can do in Kyoto. The lounge area is spacious and clean so very optimal to make new friends. The best part is the fact that there's a bar right next door :)

Its a good hostel. Quite a good size, clean, within walking distance of the station (+ a couple of good bus stops for going north), some local eateries and shops. Staff were always quick to answer any questions I had and overall very helpful.

Great hostel with a beautiful exterior. Having a restaurant placed right beside the hostel makes it easy for travelers to grab a bite and meet other backpackers and friends. The location of the hostel was a little obscure and confusing, but with some roadside signage the problem could be easily solved. Enjoyed my stay, and will definitely recommend for other backpackers.

Excellent hostel, nice bar, lounge and terraces. Close to the subway, and you can walk back from the city centre if you have to :)

It is a good experience to stay there! The staff gave me a lot of suggestions and they were all kind and helpful. The location is also good, not too far from the Kyoto Station or the subway station. I like the second floor, it is a big room to have fun with others!

Great hostel! I really enjoyed my stay in Kyoto and the hostel staff were really friendly and helped me plan what I was going to see during my short time there. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hostel felt very safe. Would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Kyoto.

So clean. So comfortable. Helpful staff. Extremely solid like all the other K's House locations across Japan, definitely worth your money. Kyoto location has a big, comfortable common area that gets so much natural light and has a big kitchen and outdoor areas as well as a rooftop terrace and a related cafe/bar next door. So easy to meet other travelers and relax here between the endless sight-seeing you can do around Kyoto. Families and people of all ages stay here, welcoming to everybody.

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.
