Fine!! Host is perfect! Location is good, rent bike for free! But a little bit small. In general, it's cost-effective! Recommend it!

A stone's throw from Tofukiji Station. Walking distance to Tofukiji Temple and Fushimi Inari Shrine. Tiny, cute and quaint little house in a really nice local neighbourhood. Supermarkets are 10-15mins walk. Host is very welcoming and makes you feel totally at home. It was like living in your own house. Enjoyed my stay !

Old Japanese Home”
I liked everything. It's really close to the station. It's a nice house and the owner is friendly and speaks English well. The beds and shower are fine. One thing I disliked a little is that the toilet is one the first floors with rooms on second floor. The staircase is long and some may not like going up the stairs. Having to go to the toilet at night is a little hard due to this. All else is fine. There are a few restaurants and a Family Mart very close by. Thanks to the owner for providing a good guesthouse.

It was great being at Usagi-Momiji...felt just at home. The guesthouse is conveniently located near the JR line railway station and not far from many of the sites that Kyoto has to offer, which can be easily travelled with the help of the bicycle that the hostess is happy to offer free of charge. Her hospitality and warmth was so enduring. They, along with the bicycle, made my stay just perfect!! The house may be small but trust me, you cannot find a bigger heart...

Will book this again ”
It might be weird that I am doing a review, but was not able to spend the night here. When I got to the hostel around 8pm, there was a problem in the booking, they do not have the 1 bed I reserved!! But, the owner was the best, she booked me in another hotel on the spot, which was way expensive compared to the 1 bed I booked and she naturally, paid for it. Yes, there was inconvenience and stress on my part, but she booked me in a hotel near the Kyoto station which compensates the early morning departure I have. Given another chance, I will still book at this hostel, you know you are taken care of.

host, location, atmosphere
Its my best stay ever in Kyoto! It provides something more than its cost. If u are looking for great 5 star service, this does not fits you. But if you are looking for something warm and friendly, traditional and fun, this is the place you must spend your nights in. The only little monus pt will be there is only 1 toilet and 1 bathroom. But, who cares! There is a public bath just 1 minute walk from the guest house! I would love to come back yo this warm and cosy place if I am visiting Kyoto again.

Convenient Location”
One of the most strategic location for a guesthouse. It is located not far from Tofukuji Station, which has JR line and the Keihan line. Very convenient to get around Kyoto and Nara. Do try out the restaurant next to this guesthouse, it has really affordable and good miso soup. I must mention that this location has only two toilets and one bathroom. Be prepared to wait your turn to use the shower. The owner is a nice Japanese lady which spoke decent English. She even recommended places to visit and the time we should visit. Recommended to those who wants to experience staying in a Japanese house.

Like living in someone else's messy home”
The curtain only extended to cover half the bed. There was an odd house rule that you can't take a shower from 11am-4pm, the doorbell doesn't work on the secondary door so ring the 1st one. Multiple people seemed to be living there, as there were rooms with their names on them as well as their belongings everywhere (including the shower room and fridge). 1000 yen for refundable key deposit. The owner seemed to be Chinese, but fluent in Japanese, with very poor grasp of English. I have a feeling her friends were staying in the dorms along with the guests. read reviews here that there were free snacks and bicycles but she never mentioned them to me.

The guesthouse was very easy to get to, and our room was spacious enough for us and our luggage. Our only problems were that shower time was only limited up to 11pm, and it was difficult to bring our luggage up the small stairs. The host was very warm and friendly. She answered some of our housemates' questions on touring Kyoto. She also offered us snacks and bread, and coupons for a nearby public bath.

3 minutes walk from Tofukuji JR station. Room was slightly crammed and food wasn't allowed in the tatami room. However, there is a communal area with some free snacks and a mini kitchen. Had to write down our names in a queue for the shower but wasn't a big problem since there aren't many people staying there (there's a laundry machine as well but no dryer). Owner can speak Mandarin and Japanese and is really friendly and accommodating to our request (had to check-out at 6am and she's awake waiting for us).

Very near Tofukuji station, Family Mart and eateries nearby”
The hostel is very near Tofukuji Station and there are 2 lines there. It is quite small, especially for a group of 3 ladies each with big bags and a narrow stairwell to get to the rooms upstairs. There is only one shower room and you can only shower during a given period of time each day, and 2 toilets. It was supposed to be ladies only, but there was a man staying there during our stay with a group of ladies. Towels are provided with a small fee, so best to bring your own.

Most memorable experience in Japan”
This guesthouse provided me so many wonderful memories. This traditional Japanese house of over a 100 years old was a privilege to live in. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and we felt very at home. Location: Excellent, a few steps away from Tofukuji Station (One station away from Kyoto Station) and a bus stop. Next to Family Mart and Daily Yamazaka (convenience stores). Guesthouse: We stayed in a private double room. Room is small and has tatami flooring, but that was part of the experience of staying in a place with so much history. Good soaps and shampoos are provided. Surroundings: Though advisable to take a bus, Kiyomizu Dera can be reached via walking. The route there is filled with many shrines and small shops along the way, a great way to start your Kyoto trip. Fushimi Inari Taisha is 1 train station away. The owners are very accommodating and eager to share Japanese culture and way of life with their guests. Look out for their Facebook page for more exciting things! Honestly, my stay here summed up my experience of Kyoto: friendly, communal and cultural. To be able to experience firsthand the culture and history of Kyoto through this guesthouse is truly a dream come true.

Amazing Guesthouse”
The guesthouse exceeded all of my expectations. It was homely, comfortable, convenient, and full of travellers coming and going. Every night, there would be people in the living room area chatting or just enjoying the company while doing their own thing. The host would also be in the common area, speaking Japanese, English, or Chinese to get to know everyone in the room. It really just felt like living at home. The location was also incredible: a 1-min. walk away from the nearest train station, Tofukuji Station, and at most a 5-min. walk from the nearest bus station, also called Tofukuji Station. There is also a FamilyMart right at the entrance to the Tofukuji train station, so no need to worry about looking for breakfast or snacks if you're feeling peckish. Bikes are free to use, just ask for the key, and you can bike along the Kamo River down to Fushimi Inari Taisha if you wanted to. On a nice day, you could also walk north along the Kamo River all the way to the Gion district. Overall, I had an amazing time and my stay here was definitely a highlight of my trip to Kyoto.

Adorable Japanese style guest house”
I stayed just for one night but I absolutely fell in love with Usagi Momiji! The owner is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeble lady that helped me out a lot and made me feel like home. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm, bed was comfy and the room clean. Shower and bath tub are Japanese style, clean, hot water. The toilet has the Japanese intelligent washlet with heated seat. The common room with tatami is big, nice and a funny fact is I loved the slippers! So stylish like the entire place!! I definitely recommend it, it is just one stop away from Kyoto JR station, super convenient and easy to get there.
