A very standard hostel, no real character. The cleanliness could definitely be improved and the location is quite far from the centre.

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.

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.

J-Hoppers Kyoto was absolutely the best hostel I have ever stayed in! The staff were amazingly helpful, personable, and friendly. It is also the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in - they clean every inch, every day! It was wonderful. The common room was fun, open and sunny. The only drawback is that it's a teensy bus ride away from most sites I wanted to see, but it was so small an issue that I will stay there again for sure next time I'm in Kyoto and definitely recommend it to friends.

Got troubles talking to staff in English except the female receptionist. The position of the air-con is weird, with thick duvet provided in summer... Others are so-so, the share space is not that backpackers atmosphere but the living is really valuable and private enough...

Love love love this hostel! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the hostel is in a great location. I also really appreciated the curtains on each bunk bed to help block out light if and the shelving for those on the top bunks so you don't have to climb up and down to access your stuff. Anyway, great hostel and I would definitely book again.

This hostel is very close to the Kyoto station so it's easily to go sightseeing. They have a discounted bus pass so definitely get that if you're going sightseeing since this city is heavily reliant on the bus system. Facilities are great but the dryer doesn't dry well on the first time around. You have to put your clothes through twice. The staff is great and the rooms are nice and spacious. There's no elevator but it's not a terrible climb up the stairs. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hostel, one staff member I found was a little more helpful than another but overall everyone was nice. Easy laundry facilities and good kitchen, I liked the location near the station because there was an easy bus link to Gion and also I don't mind a bit of a walk.

I love having curtains on the bed and lockers, just what is provided here. It's not far from the train station either:)
