We had a brief one night stay here. We enjoyed it. I liked their living room. Thank you Yuka and Taka! You two are really great and resourceful.

I had a very wonderful stay - everyone is very helpful and you get a vibe of old Japan while staying at OKI's Inn.

This is the loveliest youth hostel I have ever stayed in. At Oki's inn one can enjoy staying in a traditional Japanese house without the expense and formality of a ryokan. Taka and Yuka are extremely kind, helpful and welcoming, and guests were quiet and respectful towards each other. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Taka and Yuta you can not meet better people they are simply as good as it gets. We both felt the second room we had was a better value for the extra 5 usd. They helped translate and when asked for suggestions on anything they had multiple options. Shared their vacation photos with us made coffee and even delicious rice balls for when we were leaving for Tokyo. Love these people ! Plenty of good hostels in Kyoto but only one Taka and Yuta

One of the best places I've ever stayed in, cannot recommend it highly enough! The couple running the guesthouse are the nicest people ever, always there making sure everything is in order. Great facilities (spacious shower room and toilets, washing machine with a clothes line). It's a small place so it feels very personal and cozy, and the care the owners put into their business is tangible. Great location at literally 1m from the subway.

Great little traditional styled hostel less than 5 minutes away from JR station & a short stroll to the Kamo river. Taka & Yuka own, live & run the hostel in the same building. Their warm & friendly attitude along with their willingness to help us find & book activities in Kyoto makes coming back to the hostel at the end of the day feel like coming home. They are also very knowledgable to trains & bus routes to attractions if not they will they their best to help you. Definitely recommended!!

My friend and I had an incredibly lovely stay at OKI's Inn. The owners of the guest house were delightful and happy to help us with any query! The location was excellent given the subway was practically next door and there were numerous sights within walking distance. The bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were all impeccably tidy. I would 110% recommended OKI's Inn to friends, family and fellow travellers :) Pick this guesthouse if you're seeking serene atmosphere within the heart of a city.

Oki's Inn was a great place to stay, that I would highly recommend to anyone. It's close to central Kyoto, within walking distance to many things, it was always clean, and the owners were very kind and always went out of their way to be friendly and helpful and make it a homely place to stay!

Even though we stayed for just one night (in transit to Tokyo) we definitely won't forget it. We we're recommended by a friend of a friend to try it. The staff are really nice and friendly and it actually was a pity we could not stay longer. We will be back!

This is a really lovely hostel. The couple who run it are so friendly and helpful and speak really good English. Only downside was there was only one shower which you had to wait for sometimes but other than that was excellent!!

The atmosphere and staff were great! It felt like a traditional Japanese guesthouse. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I was given a good recommendation for shopping and site-seeing areas! There's a local bus and subway stop less than a minute away from the Inn.

We stayed in 5 different places on our holiday in August and this was by far our favourite. Yuka and Taka were amazing hosts, made us feel at home and Taka recommended us awesome restaurants (Ichiran!). They went above and beyond to help plan our days like phoning places to check if they were open, or recommending alternatives. We did our laundry here (godsend!). Location great (near shop and subway). Thin walls but we will definitely stay here next time. Yuka and Taka you are amazing =)

This is a more traditional location, lots of wood and traditional style walls. the Internet is fine and Takka and Uke are very helpful. There are plenty of good restaurants you can walk to in 5 minutes and the metro is 2 minutes walk away. We enjoyed are stay at OKI's Inn
