    Hostel is clean, facilities are good and staff are really helpful. Atmosphere is a bit lacking due to the hostel being quite small. Location is not the best. Overall still a great hostel.

    Cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Been travelling all over south east Asia, but the cleanliness here was something else. Thereby: the staff is incredibly nice. They put in so much effort to make sure you’ll get around the city and you’ll enjoy the stay. You can even rent bikes which is a great way to explore the city. Also the beds were really comfortable and I enjoyed the 4 bed dorm. Would really recommend staying here. :)

    Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to stay here. I arrived from Osaka and if you search Kyo To it comes up with ‘Did you mean Kyoto’ on any map app. When you search ‘Kyoto Guesthouse’ it comes up with every guesthouse in Kyoto. So finding it was an absolute pain in the a, especially when the street address given didnt work. I couldn’t check in or drop my bag because the check in was only between 4-9pm or something. Disappointed because I read great reviews about it. Sad face
