Stayed here while in Kyoto, and it was just around the corner from the Gion festival which was great. Close to local subway lines but no so close to JR station. Still though, fantastic value

It's a perfect place to stay in when visiting Kyoto. Accessible to all places! And the hostel itself is very excellent. I really love the communal Toilets and showers!

Loved the location and the staff were very helpful! Lovely place to stay and the curtains round the bed were a nice touch for privacy.

This hostel is pretty nice. It's a bit of a walk from the station, along a really narrow pavement, but it's not hugely annoying. There are a lot of places to eat nearby. Double bedrooms are quite small but it's okay.

The location was excellent!! But wished the staff was little more friendlier and it felt humid in the hostel and rooms I stayed in felt and smelled like I was staying in the basement. The linens were always fresh and clean and rooms were always clean. I would recommend this hostel just because of its awesome location.

Wonderful spot near the heart of old Kyoto. Make sure to head east to the Gion District for dinner along the river at one of the outdoor porches. Spectacular!

Khaosan Kyoto is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It was everything a backpacker could want - clean, friendly, central, lots of amenities and resources, big active kitchen and common area where you can hang out with other travelers or have a few quiet moments alone. The rooms have large lockers with included keys, easy to store valuables. Beds have good amenities with outlets, lights, and curtains. Lots of planned activities and helpful advice - free student walking tour was great

The staff in such guest house are very nice. I am so stupid, they don't feel me much trouble and gave me the helping hand from time to time.
