We stayed here May 3-6. We had never stayed in a Hostel before so we weren't sure what to expect. It was very busy but we had also booked during Golden Week, so that was given that it was so busy. The location was close to Kyoto station and Shichijo station. The staff were very friendly & helpful, even helping...

When considering where to stay in Kyoto, you need to know answers for 'what do you want to see' and 'how do you want to travel'. For us, after spending much money on the JR pass, we prefered to travel around by a train and minimizing other forms of transport. From this point of view, K's House was a good...

The hostel is located 10-minute walk from Kyoto Station. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Within hostel, there is a cafe that also offers western-style breakfast for a reasonable price (unlimited tea and/or coffee included). The hostel was booked near capacity the whole time we was there, so shared bathrooms/toilets were a little crowded at peak times. The...

I stayed at K's House in Kyoto for a few nights, and I had a wonderful stay. The hostel is a short walk from the main train station, which makes it a great base for getting around. The rooms are very clean with air-conditioning (necessary on hot days), the common room was spacious with free wifi and several public computers,...

Visited with extended family. We stayed in a private six bedded dorm. Hostel was very neat and clean. Hostel is very conveniently located -- walking distance from the JR Kyoto Station -- easy for day trips around Kyoto and beyond. And also very convenient bus connectivity to any of the attractions within Kyoto. Excellent common facilities -- nice and lively...

The place was close to Kyoto Station so getting there wasn't a big problem. I stayed there for 3 days/2 nights and really enjoyed it. The room was really clean and just perfect for resting. Washrooms are good as well; they have basic necessities like soap and shampoo. Not sure if they provide towels since I brought my own. They...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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.
