Nice location, great facilities. Impressive lounge area and having a bar downstairs is nice as well. Only downside is that the hostel was almost too popular (April) and there could be guests competing for use of the laundry or making noise in the hallways. Subway is close by and the hostel is easy to get to from the train station. Good value.

Mix dorm, shared toilet, kitchen and fridge had a strong garlic smell. Air freshener were standing around because of the smell. Would not stay here a second time because of the smell.

Fantastic hostel with very very helpful staff who gave some great recommendations to eat. Close to subway station which is only 2 stops from Gion area. Close to Kyoto station for getting out of Kyoto and to other areas in the city via JR trains. Bar was great in the evenings but maybe a little quiet and breakfast was a bit expensive for what was on offer. Would stay again if visiting Kyoto.

Nice and clean environment, definitely value for money. Probably the busiest of K's hostels, there is a nice bar downstairs which was always good for a drink and to meet new people. Would stay there again, value for money.

Likely the best hostel I have been to in Japan. The staff is very friendly, the site is very secure, the common room is very spacious and activities are planned very frequently. The rooms are very clean and the price is very reasonable. The shared bathrooms are very clean, as are the showers (soap and shampoo included). A main bus is nearby and the hostel is close to Kyoto Station. The restaurant provides breakfast everyday but the rooftop terrass closes early (due to noise).

A very clean, smart Hostel with loads of really helpful information about the surrounding area.

Excellent facilities with incredibly helpful staff. Perhaps it was due to the easter holidays but it wasn't really a backpackers hostel. It was filled with families and school groups. I'm glad I went with a friend because meeting new people would have been difficult.

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.
