The hostel was one of the best i'be vet stayed in. Very good location, 5-10 minutes depending on your walking pace. Very clean, really good facilities. The staff was really nice and friendly. The only problem I had was that the shower room wasn't on the same floor as our dorm, but still it was ok. Also be prepared - the hallways are kind of narrow, so if you area big girl like me it would be a little uncomfortable, but other than these my stay was nearly perfect.

PROS: Super spacious bed area with enough space to put all your belongings inside the curtains. Bed with curtains (great!). Provides shampoo and bath gel. Close to subway station (3 mins). Green tea, lots of it. CONS: on the 5th floor with no elevator and my big luggageeee. Showers only available on the 2nd floor and 3 rd. Not every day or night that I feel doing cardio after a long day of sightseeing, with that up and down the stairs.

I really enjoyed my stay here and it was nice that they offered a discount for staying 3 nights. the place was in a good location, walking distance to the JR train station and there were buses at the door step which takes you to many hotspots. the day bus pass they sell was definitely worth it.

The reception staff wasn't very friendly, unlike the other J-Hoppers I have stayed at.

Jhoppers hostel branch are amazing. We stayed in both Kyoto and Osaka. They both matched up if not were better than any hotels we stayed in whilst in Japan. Very friendly staff and environment. Great facilities. Cleanliness and great location.

Location is practical if you are thinking of taking the train in and out of Kyoto (side trips for example) because 5 minutes away from Kyoto^s main train station. Practical beds with light, power socket, curtain, lockers etc !

It was great, only there is no elevator and carrying the luggage up and down was very hard.

The hostel is quite a distance from JR Kyoto station. Otherwise, it was quite value for money. Room is a bit old but reasonable for the amount of money paid. Lack of lift in hostel is quite inconvenient especially when you have a huge luggage and living at top levels, but staff was particularly helpful to help out with the luggage.

We had a great visit at J-Hoppers Kyoto. The location was perfect for bus or subway transportation. The staff was super accommodating and friendly. The rooms were kept clean and the common area had all the necessities plus some.

In terms of facilities, this place is the best of many hostels. A fully stocked kitchen with a fridge and dishes, several showers, a laundry machine with free detergent, and a dryer! Incredible!!! Unfortunately it's a bit far from Gion, the main cool stuff in Kyoto, but it's close to the station. You can take a bus to Gion from almost in front of the hostel for like 100 yen, and it only takes 15 min or so. The staff is harder. Some of the staff was SOOO nice, others were downright rude to me!!

WiFi wasn't that good and there wasn't much of an atmosphere. It is close to kyoto station though.
