One of the coolest places I've ever stayed. Incredibly friendly staff, who know the city well and are able and willing to help you find your way around. They offer cheap bike rentals and are happy to give you insider tips on Kyoto, shopping, Japan, whatever. They host parties from time to time where you can meet cool people from the other J-Hoppers location in town, which is also really nice.

Met absolutely amazing people in the dining room. Each bed in the dorms were really spacious with places to put baggage and charge phones- it almost felt like a cubbyhouse with curtains available to completely close for privacy. Really clean in general and welcoming staff.

This is a nice, clean, modern hostel with a helpful staff. The atmosphere was relaxed but not a party scene when I was there. The common room was a nice place to chat with other guests. The location is good for walking to the bus station but a little far for walking to the sights. The metro is however close so it's easy to get around town

Thank you for your comment. We couldn't do many parties for November since guests are very busy to see maple leaves... However we'll have a Boxing day party and New Year's Eve party on Dec! We are waiting for you to join us :D

Just want to give you an advice. What about if the direction also in picture. So when it says "go straight until the intersection......", there's a picture of the intersection. I think it will be more easier to find the location. But overall it's good.

My experience at J-Hoppers Kyoto Guest house was amazing. I enjoyed a lot my days at this place. Its very close to the train station, so I get there very easily. The place was clean, rooms and toilets… I rent them a bike mostly everyday, its so nice to move that way in Kyoto. The people working there ( Erika, Cecilia, Yuria…) gave me great advices of what to visit or where to eat. I also share with them a funny Halloween night! Absolutely recommended. I felt like at home. Thanks girls!

I spent 2 nights in J-Hoppers Kyoto. Location is very nice, near Kyoto station. the staff is very friendly and we can borrow a yukata to be used there. the minus side is the place is cold. i went there on autumn and the cold weather go inside the room. it's very inconvenient. the shower is sucks because we have to push the button every minute. and also they don't have lift to go up..

the staff seemed as if they couldn't be bothered to do anything for you while you were there.... took a good five minutes for anyone to show up at the counter during check-in, the building is five or six floors full of bunk beds... facilities and rooms perfectly fine for the budget traveller, location convenient to the train though being south of the station is a bit annoying when you first have to get there

friendly staff and good atmosphere at the hostel, however the location is 10 minutes walk from the train station, so it's not very convenient. all the attractions are not within walking distance.
