The GH is well placed (~500m until the Nijô castle and ~30min max until Gion). The boss is very kind, he always want to help and gives many advice. Japanese shower and toilet. Unfortunately, only one shower for everybody (so you have to wait). The GH is clean, the beds are very confortables, the rooms are really pleasant. The common room is in a japanese style. Locker would be a good idea.

It took us longer than 15 minutes to walk here. Once we arrived, the owner went out of his way to help us feel comfortable. Common areas are quaint but the rooms are spacious tatami rooms that are simply and beautifully kept.

My boyfriend and I drove down to Kyoto from Fukushima and were expecting to have to pay for parking. It was a major concern for us.The owner saw that we had a car and cleared a space for us in front of the hostel and let us park there for free. It was so nice and considerate and saved us having to pay for parking! The hostel is a very nice place to stay that's on a quiet street. It's on the small side, but the showers are nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. I definitely recommend it!

Glad we only stayed one night. The location was good however we didn't find the staff as friendly or helpful as any other guest houses we had stayed in

The staff is really friendly. I don't know what one comment meant about the guy being creepy, he was just nice. The only thing is that if you stay in the female dorm, you have to go outside to get to the other side to take a shower.

For those of you not fully clear on what this guest house is like, it's essentially just a house. The room you'll be staying in is one of three on the second floor; there's also free access to a couple of computers and a fridge up there. The room itself is very plain - for the four of us, we had just enough room for our four futon, with not much else to spare. One shower stall and two toilets on the first floor. Very nice set up overall, and the owner is very welcoming and helpful.

It's nice that it's a walk from kyoto station but it takes closer to 20 min as opposed to the 15 written on the website. It was clean, decently priced and the old guy running it was kind. Also it's a safe area and close to some nice temples. However having only one shower to share between everyone made things difficult and so did having to go outside from the women's area to even get to a sink :/ what can you really say though it was only 3,000¥ per night.

I loved staying at Renjishi. Even though it's near the station I found it quite hard to find, and not being in the hub of things makes it very peaceful even though it's right in the middle of Kyoto. Hiring a bike from the hostel was simple, very convenient and at a reasonable rate. And this made it very easy and enjoyable to get around. There are also good bus routes close by. The proprietor is a gem and he was very helpful and generous - really made me feel at home.

Very nice, but small hostel in the center of Kyoto. It's good place to stay when you want to visiti Kyoto! Beds already had been put fresh linen.. Very nice manager of the hostel. Most things needed (like shampoo, hot water (for tee or cup noodles), fridge or Wifi) are available. Toilets and shower are in groundfloor, bedrooms upstairs. In total its a nice place to stay on a weekend trip and absolutely worth its money! =)

We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend others on a cheap budget to stay here. We stayed in the female dorm and though a little tight when full it was as you would expect a dormitory. Host was friendly and most helpful and gave good advice and a thorough explanation of facilities in the hostel.
