We were stuck by the snow in that late evening, unable to send an email or in any way notify the hostel that we were lost and would come really late. Fortunately the staff waited till we arrived and helped us cleaned ourselves and our luggage, kept us warm, and introduced us to others travelers in the common room. It's a cozy, warm place with clean bathrooms (shampoo and showered gel provided) and soft, comfortable beds which allow travelers to get full rest.
Brill, stay here and see the real Kyoto, nice local bars, cafes, amazing ramen place at end of street!! Then rent bikes and explore the rest!
This Guesthouse is very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is great right in the center of Kyoto, easy to get to many of the main sights. My only suggestion for improvement is some lockers for better security because there is no way to lock the room doors. Other than that, a great hostel!
Awesome hostel, very nice location and Nori was very helpful, giving us many tips about good places to visit and bars to go out near the hostel. Everything is super clean and there is a smoking area, quite rare in Kyoto and in all Japan! I recommend this place for everyone, they also have traditional private rooms with balcony! Plus, it's super cheap, don't hesitate! !) See you soon hitsuji an!
The owner was nice and provided helpful maps with points of interest highlighted. It's nice, clean, new, close to Nijojo Palace, and was easy to find with the online directions. There were only 2-3 of us staying in the female 6 person dorm, which was nice. It was a bit warm, however. I hogged the fan!

Guest House Hitsuji-an was a delight to stay in. Located in the heart of Kyoto, with easy access to bus stops, laneway shops and restaurants, and the most wonderful, helpful and adorable host, I really loved our time here. Our host knows Kyoto like the the back of his hand, and could recommend the best restaurants nearby, and what we should do during our time in the city. Definitely recommend this guest house!
Very nice hostel. The owner was very helpful in giving advice for places to see around Kyoto, and the best way to get between them. Kept the place absolutely spotless. Home away from home in Kyoto.

Hitsuji-An was a great place to stay. It is centrally located in Kyoto, and easy to get to almost anywhere. The owner was very nice, and took the time to explain some of the top sites and how to get there. It was very helpful, because there is so much to see in Kyoto! The Guesthouse was a traditional style house and very interesting to experience as well.
