Central and very close to public transportation at Gion area / Kyoto. Dorm rooms are enough large. Clean. Has social area and small kitchen. Free tea & coffea and very simple breakfast ( bread+margarine). Friendly and helpful staff. Recommended.

The staff here are excellent, really really helpful and they make sure you have an easy visit and stay. Beds are typical for what you pay but the real gem is the lounge area upstairs. A good space, free breakfast tea and coffee, cheap snacks and even cheaper beer. Very well located, a short walk from the city centre and...

I had a pleasant three night stay at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are extremely comfortable and its in a fantastic location. The wifi was good most of the time. However the room is very tight, you had to crawl over people's luggage to get out. Also, they say they provide free breakfast but...

The hostel itself was fine, lovely staff who are very friendly, decent beds and lounge area. The room I was in had the sinks inside the actual bedroom, so I would often be woken up by the sound of people brushing their teeth. The overall atmosphere is nice, but most of the other guests come in at all hours of...

It has a great location and access, only 5min walk to the bus station and convi store, about 10min walk to the train station, near to kiyomizudera temple and down town (kawaramachi). And you can just walk around to meet geisha, because gion is the famous location of them (but It's pretty hard to find them actually). There are also...

The staff here was extremely friendly, and the tightly-packed beds were warm and cozy. It was generally perfect for any short-term guests or backpackers passing through. The hostel was very conveniently located and well-priced, and I absolutely recommend it.

Great value for money because it is so cheap. The female dorm is a bit cramped but the mixed dorm was a lot more spacious. Small common room on the top floor with computers. A place with more secure luggage storage after checking out would be great.

Staying in Gion

Neighbourhood Profile
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.

“Try to stay in lesser pax dormitory to minimise impact of some less considerate backpackers (i.e noisy/ dirty). On 4th floor, I am glad to stayed near the window so I can have fresh air.”

“To get to Ayado from Kyoto station, go to bus stop # 206 and get down at Gion station, bus fare at ¥220 or if you arrive at Kyoto early, go get the 1 day pass that cost 500 which allows you to unlimited bus ride around Kyoto town area, very good deal as every ride no matter how many stop it'll cost ¥220. You can enquire for the card at the Kyoto station info centre, they are English friendly.”
