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.

Although this hostel is in the quiet part of the area, it is pretty accessible via train. There's a bus stop opposite too, so transport here definitely isn't a problem. The owner is really friendly and helpful in helping me plan which attractions/landmarks to visit first according to my itinerary. I've chatted with him a couple of times, and found out that he's a really genuine person. Definitely go to him if you need any help during your stay here!

Nori was extremely helpful and friendly, he really knows the area well. The guest house is beautiful and clean, and it's close to Gion and a short subway to kyoto station. It really was a delightful stay.

A cozy hostel located about a 20 minute walk from downtown Kyoto. I met some great people here and had a wonderful experience.

I´ve spent 6 nights at Hitsuji-An and reeeally enjoyed it there. The hostel reflects the traditional and cozy, but at the same time cosmopolitan style of Kyoto. Nori-san was a great host: very friendly, helpful, discrete but always interested in our experiences in Kyoto. Everything is very clean and neat. Altogether a high-standard-hostel for a low price ;)
