Hostelworld says

Backpackers Hostel K's House Kyoto is located less than 10 minutes' walk from JR Kyoto station and is about 20 minutes' walk to the Gion District. Hostelworld guests frequently praise this clean and modern hostel's 'friendly and cosy' atmosphere and the 'incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly' staff who 'are willing to take the time out to help you get to wherever you want to be and will even Google Map and help book places.' We like their rooftop terrace with a view over the city. It's no wonder this was rated the best large hostel chain at the 2011 Hoscars!

    Good location, short walk to Kyoto Station and a helpful bus stop just across the street. Lots of nice lounge areas and the bar/cafe on the main floor has a fantastic happy hour.

    Decent place, somewhat typical of Japanese hostels in its cleanliness and room size. My only real complaint is the sun beams right into the rooms in early morning, forcing you to get up. Sometimes a little extra sleep is welcome, you know?

    Good location close to the station but a bit of a walk to get anywhere else. The cafe/bar was very handy and lounge area. Very unusual mix of people for a hostel with familys there too. Bedrooms where basic. My friend was on the top bunk and there was an aircon on wall right in her face so not the best lay out.

    Clean and well located near the main station. Unfortunately the window in my dorm had no curtain or screen to block the streetlight outside, so the room was quite bright all night.

    Good, basic hostel for staying in Kyoto. However, the facilities were pretty basic, and the atmosphere was kind of weird. There was a big lounge area, but nobody was really socializing.

    Staff were nice and helpful. The bunk beds have a compartment underneath where you can store your bags. For security I recommend borrowing a lock for $1000 yen. Contains both a washer and dryer on the 2nd floor (both appear to take 45 mins each). There is also an attached bar with decent food and some nice drinks.

    We booked a private room. It was bunk beds. The room was small but wasn't bad. However the walls are super thin here! We could hear everything from our neighbors beside us. Though quiet hours start at 10pm there's really no way to enforce that so people were loud after 12am. We also got the short end with our room being next to the shower and we were right under the lounge area. The showers weren't bad but coed. The Lounge area was nice as well. Not enough laundry though.

Backpackers Hostel K's House Kyoto says

I think what makes us special is that we really try to provide a quality experience for our guests. We have tons of items available to rent for free from reception, including iPhone chargers, padlocks, guidebooks, adaptors, DVDs and games (cards, Uno, board games, etc).
I hear from our guests a lot about what they like about our hostel, and it's our clean rooms with self-locking doors, the friendly staff and the cross-cultural experience of meeting other guests in the spacious common lounge.
Our hostel is suitable for all types of travellers, from solo travellers to families to groups.
