Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse is a really friendly place. The staff are helpful and speak good English. The facilities are clean and well-presented. The whole place is bright and cheerful and seems fairly new. There is an elevator making travel between floors a breeze. There is a hang-out spot on the 4th floor with a kitchen, dining table, TV, couches, large floor cushions and 5 PCs. We used this facility everyday because of the lift :)

Still my favorite hostel to this day! The hostel is very clean, in an EXCELLENT location, with staff that are incredibly friendly and friendly travelers staying there as well. I also like how spacious their lounge is with plenty of kitchen space and seating area. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to others.

Staying in a private room. Small but great price. Close 2 minute walk to busy downtown shops restaurants and bars. Ac worked great. Wifi worked in rooms. You can borrow cell chargers. Free soap and shampoo. Great common room. Security was great! Japanese toliets! Were also clean as well as the showers. Couldn't get the water to be perfect temperature. It was either hot or cold with a quick 10 seconds of in the middle. By the time you were done it regulated. Weird. Tried 3 different showers.

The Staff are really nice and willing to help and guide everything. People who staying there are also nice. The facilities are a bit average compare to everything. Because it was public and some hot and cold water function on 3F are not working very well.

The staffs are friendly and very helpful. I had a lot of problem about the air conditioning in my room and they came to help fix it out. I first thought it was broken. Maybe it is different from my home country. In overall the atmosphere looks friendly. You have a chance to meet other travelers because it's shared bathroom which is some thing I don't like. I visited the kitchen once and I was not very impressed. The refrigerator is dirty. The guests put all the stuff in there

This hostel was fantastic. It is very spacious, offers maps, and has a kitchen, washing machine, drying area and a movie room. It is walking distance from the attractions in the city and very close to bus and metro stops.

The location was great. The hostel offered many informations on the wall and the staff was very kind and helpful. A very bad thing at the hostel was, that during my 6 night stay in that hostel the Wifi was 5 days really terrible and often not working. Not very useful if you want to prepare your trips or writing your blog. I would stay again in that hostel, but they really have to fix the wifi issue.

Too many dust in the room, feel uncomfortable to breathe. Try not to separate group members into different rooms.

very, very small room

The location is great as it's easy to reach the train station and bus stops. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. One thing though, we have to make our own bed as the sheets are not spreaded out.

Excellent location!!! The staff was friendly and helpful. Bathroom was always clean. However, the private twin room was small and smelled of mildew.
