Common area at night was load usually created by drunk groups of volenteers and not controlled by staff. Had to pay full amount by cash which was annoying. Otherwise it was clean and in a great location.

Big hostel in a good location, secure. Room was very small but ok for the price. We didn't stay much in the hostel so can't comment on the atmosphere or social life. Avarage place to stay.

Very recommendable place. Staff is nice and willing to help, especially Mika, she was my best. The bed is really confortable and the atmosphere is friendly, they close pretty early the bar which was good for me that i was in a relaxing mood. Easy to get in touch with local people. Very nice hostel.

Lovely place. Would be good to add extra shower rooms. 12 girls for a shower room in the 3rd floor is a little pathetic in my opinion. Would be great to extend the laundry time too. But overall it's a great place to stay, it's close to everywhere!

We couldn't find a fault with this hostel. Central, affordable, clean quiet warm rooms - GOOD memory foam pillows (not rice pillows), lovely clean bathroom/showers and kitchen/lounge area a real treat with great atmosphere.The STAFF ARE AMAZING! Very informative and friendly and helpful - they already know what you are going to ask about and have their finger on the pulse of the city. : DYou can buy the 500yen all day bus passes at the counter. Do this. Just do it.

Everything is just perfect!! I was great It's just that my trip was a short one and i don't really have the time to mix around with other travellers and the staffs as well Plus the room and bed condition are just what i needed As for the locker on the otherside i would prefer a larger one where clothes could be hanged too Besides this the rest was great Thanks for the stay!!!

There was a noise problem. The night staff asked the rowdy group to quiet down at least 3 times after I complained, but the noise continued from 6pm past 2am. Foot stomping, loud singing, clapping & yelling because of football (?) in the common room which is just above people's sleeping dorms. Khaosan has a strict policy about noise - it's very clear in their rules that anything above tolerable level, especially late at night would result in immediate removal of the loud guests. But nope.

It was my second time staying at Khaosan Kyoto Hostel and was not disappointed. Friendly staff who went above and beyond to help me find an English speaking dentist that would help me with a pain I had in my teeth. Would definitely stay again! Only bad thing was the soccer fans who kept me up till early in the morning one night with their chanting as their team had won a match. Reception said that they had asked them to quieten down repeatedly - they should have been kicked out!
