    Great location (just 10 mins walk from the Nishiki Market), very friendly staff, and great facilities (free unlimited coffee, at least two power sockets in the room, free shampoo + soap in the bathroom). I really recommend Yahata Guest House!

    I love this hostel. It has a really good location. We could walk from Kyoto station and also to several sightseeing spots. It was very clean. The staff was really nice and gave us a lot of tips for sightseeing. The hostel is small, but cute due to its traditional atmosphere. I can really recommend staying here!!!!

    Guest House Yahata was a breath of fresh air after our previous hostels, we instantly felt welcome by the homely environment, great facilities, and most importantly the lovely staff. The husband and wife that run this place are very kind, social, and helped us whenever we needed them - had some good laughs and even got invited to play football with the community. Free breakfast every morning was lovely, the showers and bathrooms were clean and comfortable, and the rooms nice and cool.

    Sparkling clean. No washing machine, no cook top! Thus, basically no cooking. Compared to other hostels we have been in Kyoto, it is cleaner and better atmosphere!

    Lovely hosts. Lovely coffee. Not a fan of the grass smell in the room, smelt a bit rotten. Also not a fan of the toilet/washroom/common area/dining area. Do not like having to poop 40cm from where people are eating.

    Very Good

    I am not sure that I got what I booked for. We ended up in capsule-like one-bed sleeping pods under the roof. Here is a piece of advice: if you can, make sure that you check which floor you end up on: it is impossible for an adult to stand up in the rooms on the top floor! This did not ruin my stay in Kyoto, but I may have selected a different hostel if I had been informed more fully. The hostel is conveniently located and clean, and staff were very helpful with local information.
