Awesome stay with Khaosan Kyoto Guest House! It's a pity that we only managed to book a night stay due to the guest house's high demand and peak season. The guest house is well located and the room and toilet are super clean and well maintained! Highly recommended to all travellers :D

The only complaint here is that there was one toilet and one shower for two rooms with six people in each. Otherwise the beds were comfortable, the room had small lockers in for valuables. The common room upstairs was lively, the reception was large and used as another common room so there was a place to escape to if required. The location was bang in the middle of town and had 24 hour convenience stores located nearby.

very valueble choice. just a few steps down KAWAHARA CHO and near Gion area, it's very convinent for sightseeing, shopping or dinning. The facilities are simple and clean and the price is very reasonable.

Great location, wonderful and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms. The only backdrops were that the washrooms and the lounge tended to be overcrowded while we were there and the Wifi did not work in our room. Still, we had a really good time and you will hardly get better value for your money.

The hostel is a little bit dark. Too many people in the peak season I guess and we feel this place is too crowded. The location is great.

The room was definitely one of the smallest but everything else was fine! Located in busy Kawaramachi and 20 min walk to Gion-Shijo/Gion area, tonnes of food and shopping within walking distance. Buses available to go to Arashiyama, Kinkakuji and other major tourist attractions. Showers and toilets are clean. Huge common area with a decent kitchen. Family Mart and 7-11 are right down the road!

the location is really good, very convenient! Staffs could speak English, so no worry! I will definitely come back while visiting Kyoto.

Excellent facilities for the price! It might be nice to have an air freshener or fan of some sort in the private rooms. The air gets fairly stale in there.
