All the main sights in Kyoto are spread out around the city so no matter where you stay you'll need to travel by bus/metro to visit all the temples. The hostel is located a 5-10 minute walk from a metro stop and there is a bus stop just around the corner. The owner speaks English and is very friendly and helpful in recommending site to visit and the ways to get around the city.
This is a smaller house that a husband and wife have set up for travelers with a capacity of 11. I met the lady and she is really very nice. The main downside is the location - I was used to staying in hostels around Gion/Ponto Cho (more to the north east) which was much more convenient. I walked to Ponto Cho that night and it took 30 minutes and I had to walk past my old hostel.
Good solid place to stay. Nice staff, clean. Location ok but you have to walk a little ways to get there from metro. Nice quite neighborhood. Very good fresh roasted coffee. Free! They own a coffee shop nearby with discount for those staying with them. I recommend the place. Quite, good night sleep. Meets all the basic requirements.
