Okay-convenient location. Very nice and beautiful staff members. Place has everything one needs to stay quite comfortably. Sadly the walls are too thin and neighbor's noises can easily be heard, but for the money spent... can't really complain much about it.

Room was very small and awkward, plus difficult to get into due to ladder covering half of doorway. Seemed very unsafe. As our building was detached from reception there were no staff present to regulate the other guests being quite loud at 11:30 pm and 6am.
a very nice histel with a good price and facilities. we stayed in a private room with a indrpendent bathroom. maybe the only two things i'd like to comment are: 1) our air conditionner's heater didn't really function (or we had to wait for a longer time?), but thank god that the temperature was bearable. 2 ) our toilet seat had one of its two sides loosened. but generally speaking, we definitely recommend this hostel and will come here again!!
The place is incredibly noisy. You can hear everything in the house through the walls. Someones was slamming the doors all the time, you can hear the toilet flush directly at your head, you can hear people talking, shouting etc. etc. With any louder noise, you can even feel the house shaking. You can even hear people brush their teeth behind the thin wall. This happened on the evening when you try to sleep and in the morning when you are still sleeping. We have slept well for a single night.
Both the lodging house and the Reception house around the corner were extremely sweet and pretty buildings, in a lovely quiet neighbourhood of Kyoto, near to transport links and the main Kyoto rail station. You go to the reception to check in and have breakfast/use the bar. The staff are all wearing traditional kimonos, and they are v helpful in suggesting sights and bus/subway. We were only there for 2 nights - not enough, but if u were there to party or stay out late it wouldn't be so ideal..
The staffs were very kind and helpful. The bathroom, toilet, and rooms were maintained so clean that I was mildly surprised. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed my stay :-)
I had so much fun stay in Ikoi-no-Ie Kyoto.. The staffs really nice and helpful. The most important, they can speak English fluently so it's really easy to comunicate with them. The hostel really cute, perfect place for people who wants to try to stay in Japanese style house. Perfect location, near 24 hours supermarket. I will definitely stay there again if I come to Kyoto again. Thank you Ikoi-no-Ie Kyoto.

- very nice hotel only few streets away from the train station and subway.
Clean and nice place, with good facilities. The check in process is messy and should be definitely improved. They make you arrive to one place. Once you're there (after dragging your lugagge through cobblestones streets), you find a signal that says you should go somewhere else, 2 blocks away. Then, you arrive to the reception, do the check in and have again to move to the final place where you'll be staying. Even everything is close, I don't see the reason for the treasure hunt.
So, we were 3 persons. Room was big enough and very beautiful, althoug the sliding doors of the balcon came off quickly and we were really afraid that we broke it ( we didn't) but still it wasn't very pleasant. Some of the staff spoke good english, but one girl really had problems. Futon had hair on it :/ All in all it was good, despite the hairs, it was clean. Bit pricey.
