Hostelworld says:

Khaosan Kyoto Guest House is very centrally located, around the corner from the train station and just 10 minutes' walk from the Gion District. This stylish, clean hostel offers comfortable beds as well as free Wi-Fi, coffee, green tea, shampoo and soap. Hostelworld guests have told us 'this place should set the standard for dorms worldwide' and is good value for money. We particularly like the privacy curtains and balcony in their six-bed dorm.

  • Khaosan Kyoto Guest House says

    I think what makes us special is that we provide discounts for local cafes which are good places to eat breakfast. We also give a special souvenir to our guests when they check out. But what our guests seem to like the most about our hostel is our free regular activities, hosted by our own staff, Kyoto locals and university students. There's free walking tours of Higashiyama, origami classes, Japanese calligraphy classes and so on.
    We are located in the central part of Kyoto city (Shijo - Kawaramachi area), which means you can easily do everything. We recommend walking up to Gokomachi-dori Street. There are a bunch of local cafés and second-hand clothing and accessory shops along there. Some of the shops are renovated traditional houses and their atmosphere is quite unique and distinguished; it's a good place to chill out.
