    Hands down the best hostel I have stayed in Japan, maybe even Asia. The staff are so helpful and the rooms are so clean and comfortable. The best Japanese/Western breakfast is included in your stay and you will get discounted cocktails and coffee as a guest. It's right near Gion so walking distance to major parts of Kyoto and if you want to go further they have bikes available. This hostel sets the bar for others.

    Been to many a hostel, across the world, and Piece was absolutely amazing. Basically hotel status. That being said, I did stay in the private room rather than dorm because I was with my partner and we decided to ‘splurge’. The twin private was great value, and I’ve never had a private room at a hostel that has your own bathroom and shower. Free breakfast was very generous - more than just toasts. Choice of pillows (maybe five or so types to choose from). Couldn’t be more walkable.

    Clean, hip hostel close to all of the sites and city center in Kyoto. The rooms were clean and pretty spacious for Japan. Included breakfast was simple but filling with a lot of options. There is also a bar downstairs that is a nice place to hang out. Wifi worked really well and the staff were helpful and friendly and gave us tips on what to do in the area.

    This hostel really is as good as all the reviews say. Just as good, if not better than, many of the hotels. I did not want to leave. I stayed in a. Single room and it was perfect. You can also walk to most places from here, too.

    Nice chic modern hostel in Kyoto. I opted for a private room and it was better than a lot of hotels. I like the simple and clean architecture. I can see how others say it feels cold though. It’s personal preference. Staff was extremely helpful. You can rent bikes and portable WiFi devices when you explore the town. It’s location is near many markets and shopping areas. I would definitely stay here again.

    Would definitely recommend Piece hostel and would stay again if in Kyoto! Conveniently located - a short walk to nishiki market and lots of nice shops and cafes in the neighborhood. Also 10 minute walk to subway and 15 minutes to gion district. Hostel was clean and beds were very comfortable. More of a boutique hotel vibe, so may not be ideal for solo travelers as not as much of a social scene.
