    It is in Gion area of Kyoto, a quite crowded area. It is convenient to find food, bars, shops nearby. It is also close to Kiyomizu Temple, just 15-20 mins walk to there. Rooms, toilets and shower rooms are all very clean. The living rooms are quite large. However, the staff are just okay. One night they cooked after 11pm. As the kitchen is in the living room and the ventilation is not good enough, the smell went to the dormitary. It's very strange.

    Dear LI, Thank you for your stay with us. We are sorry for making you uncomfortable with the cooking smell. We will thoroughly ventilate the room while cooking and promise it won't happen again.

    Only one complaint. Our room was not serviced one day so we didn’t get clean towels. They were provided when I asked for them. For a room that cost in excess of AUS$250 per night, I’d expect better.

When the guests request new towels, we will change as free for private room guests. We might not enough to explain when you checked in, if so, sorry for inconvenience and thank you for your comment to give us opportunity to explain. We always pay attention and check market price for competitions, we have confident about price to offer guest as reasonable and better price as guest house in same area.

    The place is lovely, with friendly staff. Facilities are pretty much complete. What you expect to have for a hostel, they have it. Location is good, if you doesn't mind to walk. Gion, or KiyomizuDera temple are within walking distance for me. Downside is there isn't much breakfast options nearby.

    There is a pottery bathtub which you can experience a private onsen during your stay. In order to use it, you have to book at the reservation in advance. If you travel with a big suitcase, you may be tired due to the slope of the paths to the hotel. The staff is very helpful and very good in English communication.

    Place was really clean and relaxing, had fast internet, staff were good at English and were very helpful with info about the city. Common room was big enough with a complete kitchen. Rooms had their own heating aircons and they also let you use Japanese robes and indoor slippers so it was very relaxing! The neighborhood was so charming, and the place was 15mins easy pace walk to the nearest subway, 5mins easy pace walk to the nearest bus stop. Shared showers/toilets were very clean. Felt so calm and zen. Q-beh had the old world charm with all the comforts you’d still want these days, at an affordable price! Highly recommended 👍

    If you are a new traveler to Kyoto (solo or not). This capsule hostel is for you. the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable in sightseeing spots, events and tours. they were able to teach me where I could go for autumn leave night illumination which is famous in Kyoto. facilities are clean but bed is dusty (not for people with sinus issues). It has a very traditional japan design thus it is a very interesting stay. It is abit far from the station with afew slopes. Beware if you are a solo traveler with heavy luggage it will be a struggle. I really enjoy my stay here and will definitely come back to Gion Ryokan Q-beh the next time I am in Kyoto.

    Classic ryokan in a very prime location, excellent English speaking staff”
    This is a very quaint ryokan. Location is superb, minutes away from Gion and Yasaka Shrine. It comes with washing machine which was very thoughtful for long haul travellers. The showers however was the only disappointing thing about Q-Beh. It was freezing cold at 2-5 degrees, and the shower took forever (a good 3-5 minutes) to heat up. And it comes with the push tap, means after about 20 seconds the water turn off by itself, you gotta keep pushing and pushing while shampooing your hair and all. The washroom sink does not come with warm water too. We almost froze our hands & face off while brushing our teeth and washing our face. Room lighting is a little too dark as well. Aside from that, all is pleasant. Staff is amazingly friendly.
