The hostel is rather far out, but it's close to a tube station with very frequent services into city centre. There's a large supermarket and restaurants nearby and the area is very quiet. The place was clean, the room was spacious (unfortunately there was neither a chair nor a reading lamp though), the bed was comfy, and showers etc. were working well. BUT the kitchen isn't unlocked before 9 am, and there weren't many dishes nor much cutlery available.

Good value for money, and the staff are very nice! The location isn't 100 % perfect, but it's good enough - you can still walk into city centre, and the buses are cheap, so you can just catch one of them if you can't be bothered walking...
This hostel is brand new, and this shows! It's very clean and tidy, and everything is in perfect condition. It's situated pretty much next to the train station, which is very handy, and the owners are extremely helpful and welcoming. The only thing you might find strange at first is that the dorm rooms have no doors, only curtains.
Guest House Yahata is a great place to stay if you want to spend some time in Kyoto. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the place is quite small, so its cozy and quiet. I would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Kyoto, and I`ll check in there again in case I return to Kyoto one day!
