Great location for a day trip to Kyoto since it's just a 10 min walk away from Kyoto Station. However, the hostal is 5 floors high without an elevator, you have to make your own bed and shower facilities are few and far from some of the bedrooms. This is not to say it's necessarily a bad hostel, but we found the points mentioned above to be very annoying after a long day walking in the city.

Everything about J-Hoppers is perfect even the three receptionists were all perfect hosts! The location is very close to Kyoto Station very easy to spot because of the exterior and the bus stops are also nearby. Izakaya's and convenience stores are also within walking distance. The facilities are perfect i got a good night sleep as soon as we checked in.

Perfect location, great staff that speak fluent English. Only problem is that there are only a few showers, can get busy in the evening. Dorms are well designed, you have a little cabinet and space to hang stuff up in your bunk bed. Staff is super helpful and friendly. 5 minute walk to Kyoto Station, great base for traveling around.

Family of three stayed one night, close to trains and good kitchen facilities. Friendly staff and quiet night. Mind the stairs, a challenge with big bags.

Exceptional place, with exceptional staff and amenities. Very clean and well lit. Everything seems perfect except for the layout of the rooms, and the inability of the curtains to provide privacy. Only one shower seems to be truly private, and the other, more smaller one lacks privacy, has the water backing up as you shower, and is in general uncomfortable.

Okay-ish. It's in a good location and the staff is helpful. It's kinda clean, but the mattresses are uncomfortable and bed curtains slightly moldy.
