The place is clean and fairly central. But the overall impression is still poor because the owners are stingy and so high-strung it is almost laughable. They want 500 yan extra for an blanket. Other irritating things is that you have to put on the linen yourself on the bed, even though they charge like a proper hotel for the...

The staffs are very helpful and informative, we booked the room 3 days before arrival and were told that there was only loft room available. The price was really low so we took the offer. We were charged with 2 pax rate even though we had the 4-beds loft room all to ourselves. However, the guesthouse is quite small and...

Pros: (1) The staff are quite friendly and accommodating. Even before check-in, we were able to leave our bags safe inside the hostel. They also accommodated our late check-in request. They also gave us a free detailed Kyoto map and gave suggestions on where to go in Kyoto. (2) Good location, roughly 5 minutes walk from Gojo station and 15-20...

It's a small guesthouse located near Gojo station (just one subway stop from Kyoto station). The place is in a small alley. It's a very cozy and small guesthouse. Rooms are very nice, Japanese style and also clean. There is also free WIFI and Internet. Maybe the only complaint is that they don't have a dining room, but that's not...

If you are staying off-peak season, this place is great. We stayed 4 nights in a private twin room with tatami mats and futons. The room was very spacious and had AC. There are dorms as well. The one room I would not recommend is on the first floor right next to the showers and kitchen, I can imagine it...

I went to this place on the right moment of Sakura blooming season on last April 2013, so it was difficult to find a good hostel/hotel with affordable price. But fortunately, I found this guesthouse and quite satisfy with their service. Beside the good price, this hostel will offering you with a good service and high quality of their staff....

I can not follow the other recomendations as the hostel itself is very very small. 12 beds, one shower (!) for all of us, tiny area to sit with 4 mini-chairs... Breakfast is no existant (toast and butter, 'one slice per person only' - come on 20 slices are worth 1 euro) Spaceous room, but you can hear every single...

I don't really recommend this guesthouse which is small and noisy. It's not a place where you feel home but it's ok to stay there. Breakfast is poor and they start cleaning at 9.30am so there is no way you can sleep in the morning. Owners are friendly.

Stayed here with the family in the 4 bunk-bed room. THE GOOD: STAFF. The owners were great - warm, gracious, very friendly. The entire staff was nice and spoke great English. The owners are very passionate about Kyoto and love to give advice and suggestions about sightseeing. PRICE. Kyoto can be a pricey place to stay. Guesthouse Yahata is reasonably...

This was the most basic accomodation we stayed in, but it was functional with friendly staff. Our room was clean but very basic, and next to the shower and kitchen which wasn't ideal. The internet and common room area (with info on where to go and what to do) were good, but like everything it was a bit too compact...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

“All depends of you, if you couple you can choose the private room. But if you are the solo traveler, just pick a single bed in the mix room instead.”
