    Clean rooms, convenient location, friendly and knowledgeable staff, very comfortable overall. It felt more like staying at a friends house than staying at a hostel. Honestly, my favorite hostel I have ever stayed at. Great experience overall.

    An excellent place for our trip. Located 5-minutes from the nearest bus stop, we were able to walk 10-15 minutes for either downtown or Kiyomizu-dera temple. The staff were very accommodative with us, as they helped us plan our trip around Kyoto and visiting local attractions. It is located in a quiet area of Kyoto, though the common area is a great setting for socializing. Free breakfast consists of toast & jam with coffee/tea, though for 500 JPY a special meal can be prepared. Would recommend

    We had a lovely stay at Guesthouse Soi! It was the perfect place to unwind after a busy few days exploring Kyoto. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff are very nice and welcoming. Would definitely stay again!

    The location is quite close to the bus stop. The whole building is pretty. The downside is the pillow is too thin and flat for my liking. The staff are brilliant and I loved the little sofa that facing outside. Beautiful! The bathroom is clean and it has fully equipped kitchen.

    Had to leave at 6 am to catch my flight and asked if I could have 2 slices of bread the night before leaving since breakfast would not be out till 7 am and would not be accommodated. Seems like a small gesture and accommodation to do for another human. Good environment otherwise though.
