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!!


Had an excellent time at oki's inn, location in the commercial alley seems very unique! Will defintly go back to this guesthouse if I come back to Kyoto!


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.


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


A young Japanese couple run small guest house. Owners are very nice and kind, are always ready to answer your questions. Typical Japanese style.perfect location. would recommend definitely.


We had a fantastic stay here. The owners, Yuka and Taka, are extremely friendly, knowledgeable about Kyoto, and speak flawless English. The guest house has a lot of style, is spotless, and has all the facilities required to have a great stay. The location is also perfect!


We felt very lucky that we chose OKI's Inn for our short stay in Kyoto, everything was just perfect. The private room we stayed has a very elegant and traditional taste of Japan, we absolutely loved it. The whole ryokan is an old house and the owners (OKIs) readapted it into a place where the guests can have both great social time and peaceful solitarily. Last but not least, the owners are just a wonderful couple, extremely hospitable, knowledgable and helpful. Strongly recommend you to go there

It's a really lovely place to stay! The building and has a really nice, japanese charme and the two owners are so lovely and helpful!


very nice palace, i like it very much :D


We had the most amazing stay at Oki's Inn! The location was great - walking distance to a lot of sights or just a short train ride away. The couple who run this place are the loveliest people you're likely to meet in all of Japan... They could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend staying here, and I plan to come back when in Kyoto next!

Hello, Rongrong Yu! It was very nice to talk to you and your parents. By the way, you put 1 for all categories even though you sound satisfied with our guesthouse. We wonder you made a mistake in rating... Could you check your review again, and reconsider it? We are looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you. Taka & Yuka OKI's Inn


I really loved staying at Oki's Inn. The hosts, Yuka and Taka, speak good English having studied in Australia and were so charming, fun and helpful. The position was great, in a small street full of fresh food stalls and close to the subway and a short walk to the edge of the city with beautiful temples and hillside walks. The hostel is a lovely small traditional house with a large communal tatami room and good cooking facilities. I am planning to return for longer!


Very good value for money


We had an amazing stay at OKI's while we stayed in Kyoto. The hostel itself is in an excellent location - super close to public transport and the main night life spots in Kyoto. The main highlight though is definitely the staff - they were incredibly friendly and always had recommendations for stuff to do and places to visit. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Kyoto.


I am pretty sure that this is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Dorm beds have convenient shelves and booklights and are comfy and firm. There's only one shower; it's very clean with a separate, tiny dressing area. The common area is Japanese style, and there's a small kitchen.Highlight is the hosts: they are the loveliest kindest people you'll meet in Japan, which is saying a lot. They are very knowledgeable and helpful, and went out of their way to find me vegetarian restaurants.


I would definitely stay here again! So clean and full of character and the nicest couple running the inn. Just lovely.


I only stayed here one night but I wish I could have stayed longer! The owners are both very friendly and fantastically helpful. The bedroom was clean and cosy, and facillites good. The wifi worked well, shower was hot (though could have been a little cleaner) and the location was perfect, right by a subway station and just a ten minute walk to the Gion area. The traditional features were a nice touch, and their 3 cats very cute!
