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 :)

The toilet and bathroom although share by whole floor guests, but it is better to separate into male and female bathroom. It will be more convenient and safer for female guests.

The location is a bit out of the way, but it's not a bad thing, being located in a Kyoto neighborhood makes it quiet at night, and the staff is AWSOME, I've never met people so friendly and helpful, Shin-san is Mr. Charisma, I wish the world had more people like him, When I come back to Kansai I'm staying at K's house, super clean, super friendly....

The hostel itself (rooms, common area and bar) are very good but unfortunately the location is really poor. It's a 10 min walk from station, but near nothing else and in sparse area (if your not near the centre you'd at least hope to be in a cool area). It's slightly cheaper than other hostels but by the time you paid for transport, which you need to do anything, it's not worth it. It's an otherwise good hostel, but I would recommend Khoesan Theatre hostel which is very central and fun.

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.
