    I LOVED my stay at Gojo Guest House. The location is wonderful and easy walking distance from Kyoto Station and to many landmarks. The staff are absolutely incredible. They had plenty of suggestions and recommendations for food and site seeing. They even drank and chatted with me at the cafe/bar downstairs. My only small critique is that it can get quite cold at night during the winter. I will be staying at Gojo the next time I visit Kyoto and there will be a next time. A truly grand experience.

    Great place. Really cool atmosphere and feel. Really nice staff. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Kyoto. They also have bikes that you can rent. Highly recommend riding them around the city.

    We stayed here for almost a week and we loved it! Sleeping on the traditional tatami mats wasn't as different or difficult as we imagined it to be, and the guesthouse is absolutely gorgeous. Sharing the room with so many people was a bit trying since some were a little inconsiderate. The only complaint we have for the hostel itself is that it's not near any JR Stations or popular restaurants, though is accessible via bus and subway stations that were probably a 5-10 minute walk away.

    Great place, about a 20 min walk from the station but next to the old district so can walk there. Hiring a bike is great and good value. Little privacy in the rooms but that is expected and it was great to have a proper Japanese experience. Met some lovely people and the staff were lovely too! Toiletries provided, good foood at the restaurant if you want it.

    Great location- easy walking to Higashiyama and JR station and Fushimi Inari Shrine. Really nice staff and a nice downstairs hangout spot, lots of resources for trip planning provided. Only downside is that noises travel well in the whole hostel- thin walls and sort of tight quarters
