The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful! The atmosphere was very comfortable and I felt like I was staying with family friends rather than at a hostel, because I was so comfortable and the environment was very homey. Everything was great with IchiEnSou!


An amazing Hostel with a great homely feel to it! Especially because of the hosts! And in addition the location is also amazing!


clean quiet and well located. only one bathroom for guys and it's in the kitchen. almost no curtains in the windows of the dorm so you wake up at 6.


This is a small family run hostel with a very warm, homely feel. The husband speaks fluent English and was very helpful with directions, recommendations etc. It is small so it's not a party hostel, but it was social.


Great hostel, well located, also the owner yashi , is really nice!


Really enjoyed our stay at IchiEnSou. There was enough space at the female dorm for us to lay out our stuff (a looooot of shopping), and the owner was super nice too. Will definitely consider going back when I visit Kyoto next time!
