    Gojo has been refreshing my life in Kyoto. It feels like if you never visit Gojo, just like you have never been to Kyoto. The nostalgic Kyoto style accommodation meets friendly and considerate staffs. It's really out of Kyoto. Besides, the owner's hand-made coffee is just a perfect start for your journey before wandering the Japanese streets scattering around the city.

    Gojo has been my favourite hostel in Japan. It has a lovely traditional vibe, friendly English speaking staff & great location. The cafe downstairs really tastey and affordable. I had the 400¥ breakfast the 3 mornings I was there. It's a 25min walk from Kyoto train station and is very doable.

    Both my friend and I stayed in both the individual room (6 nights) and the female dorm room (2 nights). The location was really close to the Kiyomizu subway line and pretty close to the JR Kyoto Station. Honestly we mostly used the Subway (160 yen) to get to the Kyoto Station because we did not want to walk. The staff here were so nice and extremely helpful! Honestly I cannot reccomend this place enough!

    Good value and good experience for Traditional Japanese way of living. The place is close to gojo train station and within 20 minutes walk to the downtown. The living room is pretty nice and I enjoy sitting there reading books or chatting.

    Stayed a couple of nights in the shared room and had it all to myself. Staff was really friendly, always willing to help. Location is 15/20 min walking to the city center and 10/15 min to Gion area. Price/quality relation was perfect. They even have a small coffee shop downstairs.

    The staff is really friendly and outing and made this stay great. I got a bad cold near the end of my trip and they gave me some medicine and I then went and got some myself. I think every staff member there notice I wasn't feeling well and asked if i had any medicine or if they could get me some. The only down side is the house is old so it can be loud especially the doors (those traditional style doors are really loud!!). Both me and my brother loved our stay here.
