    Gojo Guest House was incredible! The staff were so friendly and thoughtful. We were given amazing tea from the cafe upon arrival and custom maps to help us navigate the city. The atmosphere of the hostel was super cool and the drinks from the cafe below were so tasty. The bathrooms and traditional bedrooms were clean and comfortable. Great location. Honestly, the best hostel I've stayed at so far! Definitely beats staying in a hotel in my opinion.

    This is a great hostal with super friendly nice staff and very clean. It's in an old-style house so the walls are thin if you are a person concerned with noise. But everyone was super quiet and respectful so I didn't find it to be a problem. The location is good, walking distance to attractions and the downtown area. Didn't try the food but I hear it's good. I would stay here again.

    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.

    Cute little backpacker hostel in a decent location of Kyoto. It's an easy walk from the station, and also from most of the central parts of town (only a few minutes walk from the river). The staff were super friendly/helpful/welcoming & served great food/coffee/beer which was an added bonus. The sleeping arrangements were pretty basic, but if that's all you need then this is a good option for you.
