    This place is a bit of a walk from the Kyoto station (I’d say over 10 minutes).. all the attractions were a metro ride away! just be aware that everything’s pretty spread out. But there were a few convenient stores near by. And there’s also some great food spots under the metro station! Overall the beds were really spacious but hard as a rock! There’s no elevator and the hallways are so narrow only one person can go up each staircase at a time. I had a pleasant stay :)

    I loved my 6 night stay at J-Hoppers! The common room always had people there to talk to and I even made a couple friends there! A very convenient location, a bit loud for me personally but if you're a city person, this place is for you! The staff are very friendly and we're very helpful in figuring out some places for me to go to during my stay!

    Great place, easy to get to from the train station with restaurants and 7-11s all around. As others have written, the beds are incredibly hard and uncomfortable so put the blankets under you. There is no elevator so if you have more than a backpack (which I did) and you're on the 4th floor, it's a lot of work. The windows are reasonably soundproofed, but the building is on a very busy intersection of two major roads, so bring earplugs. Great staff, very clean, fabulous common room and kitchen.

    Staff was absolutely wonderfull so helpfull and extremely nice. Location is about a 8-10 minute walk to Kyoto Station which is very convenient, also right by a 7/11 and several places to eat and drink. Only thing is the place could you some tlc its not bad in any way but a good way to describe it is “well loved” a fresh coat of paint and maybe a few other things and the place would be amazing. Would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and easy place to stay in kyoto

J-Hoppers Kyoto Guest House says

I think what guests like most about our property is our very friendly, English-speaking staff. We just love chatting with our guests!
Toji Temple is just 15 minutes' walk from our hostel and has the highest wooden pagoda in Japan. I personally recommend visiting the Fushimi Inari Shrine. It's an important Shinto shrine in Kyoto and has trails leading into the wooded forest of sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds. At the back of the shrine's main grounds is the entrance to the torii gate covered hiking trail, which starts with two dense, parallel rows of gates called Senbon Torii ("thousands of torii gates"). The torii gates along the entire trail are donations by individuals and companies.
I'd say we're ideally suited for single travellers and couples aged 16 to 50. Erika, Receptionist
