    Jiyu-jin was the best place I've stayed at overseas! The rooms are spacious and the facilities are modern and clean. But what made my stay truly special was the hostess - Sayaka! She is an incredibly happy, bubbly, energetic, helpful and caring human being. On our first day she was so welcoming and helped us plan out our trip. Everytime we would leave or come back to the guest house she would come and check in on us and be genuinely interested in our days. I could not recommend this place more!

    This place was absolutely wonderful. The staff was SO sweet, they looked things up for me when I just mentioned I had had trouble, and sent me off with a little paper crane for luck. It was very clean, felt very secure, and quiet. Full kitchen available. It's within a 20-25 min walk of Nishiki Market and Gion, and a 5 min walk to the closest subway stop. The bed was not the most comfy, but everything else was so wonderful I'd still stay here again.

    Great place to stay loved every moment of it. I stayed with them twice on my recent trip. For me, it was the right distance from a lot of things without being in the noise. Public transportation is close, from the bus stops to the metro. Allot of restaurants around which was very helpful when you're coming back and your tired. a 24-hour mart is nearby if you're not into eating regular food. Great helpful staff, you got questions they have answers. They were extremely helpful on things to do.

    I stayed here on a holiday trip and had a fabulous experience. The ladies at the front counter were lovely—very helpful and enjoyable to chat with. My travel companion is very, very sensitive to cleanliness, and neither of us had any complaints. Would recommend this place to anyone planning to spend time in Kyoto!

    The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. I was able to check in several hours early after a full morning of travel and they remembered my name the morning after when asking how I slept. Would definitely stay here again if I return to Kyoto.

    This was a fantastic place to stay for 4 nights, though it isn't the best place to meet people if you're a single traveler. The hosts were amazing and very passionate about making sure that you had a great time there. The only issue I had was that the bed wasn't very comfortable. The hosts even changed the mattress for me, but sleeping on the comforter and using an extra blanket helped.

    This guesthouse is run by the nicest people! They fall over themselves to help and offer useful advice. I left my watch in the shower room and they even mailed it to my next destination (I said not to worry as it was cheap but they insisted). It was convenient to be able to rent a bike there too (highly recommended for Kyoto). The location is good, room was clean and quiet. A real gem! Not a place to go if you want to party, more relaxed.

    Fascinating place. Its a guesthouse so don't expect the hostel vibe but very cool place. For almost the same cost as a hostel, you can get a personal spacious room. They have a very good common area and kitchen but not bar or cafe. Facilities were great. Staff at the reception were the sweetest people I met on my trip. Highly recommend this place. Total value for money. Good to organize yourself when jumping from one hostel to another as it gives you privacy for not a lot more cost.
