Very nice, easy and cheap hostel, also let you arrive during night and then pay in the morning, that made things a lot easier;) Staff very friendly, facilities very adequate, beds are comfortable and wifi helps as well:)

Not so central, a bit rundown, but still ok.

There are 2 "downtown" in the Kyoto city. The big one is Shijo area. Another one is Kyoto Station area. We are 7-8 min walk from the Kyoto station.

Second time staying here and will be back when I next visit Kyoto. I love it and cannot recommend it highly enough to other travellers. You will get fit if you stay on the top floor though as there is no lifts or elevators.

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!
