Santiago Guesthouse Kyoto
Kyoto,Kyoto - View on map
"Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Santiago guest house. My first time staying in a guest house and I like it better than the 5* Nikko in Minato ku, Tokyo. Service are more genuine and the people are real in Santiago. It is the best accommodation we had in whole of our Japan trip. We were staying mostly in Nikko hotels ( 3 Nikko hotels)and another 5* hotel in Osaka."

HARUYA Umekoji
Kyoto,Kyoto - View on map
"I did not stay at the conventional room since I booked a dorm type room. But, this hostel is really beautiful. Yes, you can hear the sounds of the footsteps and even people talking but it's because of the thin walls of the renovated ryokan house. You can walk from Kyoto Station to the hostel (i love walking) maybe about 20mins, or u can opt to ride a bus. Ministop, Kyoto Aquarium are walking distance from the hostel. This hostel was really nice and I loved that I met other solo travellers there too. But what I loved most about this hostel was the service of the staff. Aww Japanese are so polite!! I forgot the name of the hostel staff (Aika?) she was very helpful to me. They also recommended an Onsen to me and I was delighted that I tried it!! Thankyou and I will be back again next time 😁Kyoto is looooove :)"

Kyoto Hana Hostel
Kawaramachi,Kyoto - View on map
"If you have stayed in any of their hostels in Japan you know what you will get. Friendly staff, good wifi, great amounts of local tourist information (cheap rental bikes, laundry, etc). It's like a 10 min walk from JR Kyoto train station and a bus ride away from the main Kyoto city (5 minutes on bus or walk 30 mins). But in Kyoto if you want to visit the temples... you need to catch a bus (500yen day pass) or use a push bike. So this hostel location is no problem! Recommend!"

Fujitaya BnB
Kyoto,Kyoto - View on map
"beautiful, cozy house, veryvery friendly and lovely staff, they help you with anything. bike rental is fantastic (i recommend doing it every day coz going around by bus is quite challenging, furthermore you get to know the city much better by bike I'd say). the rooms are very nice, tatami mats and japanese style beds. I slept wonderfully... it's always quiet in the house, good atmosphere. I tried the breakfast only once (coz i slept so good and long), but it's fine! no bad things, maybe just that it's a bit far from downtown kyoto (30-40min by buy), but as it is an excellent placeto stay, this is really no problem at all. nice and quiet (traditional) neighbourhood, another plus!"

Gion Koh
Gion,Kyoto - View on map
"Gion Koh was one of the most memorable experiences if my 11 day Japan trip, which is not what I expected from a hotel! The house is beautiful and relaxing, the check in room is the most relaxing place in all of Gion. The garden has a koi pond and lighting at night, you can fall asleep to the sound of running water. It feels like a quiet little bed and breakfast even though there is a big shrine right down the road. The host, Hiro, is a very friendly man with lots of personality, he sat with my wife and I and recommended lots of things to do and see in Gion based on what we like to see. He speaks English very well and will go out of his way to be helpful. His hospitality is unmatched. We stayed in a Japanese style room with futon mats. I am used to a mattress and still found them comfortable. The room we stayed in was the perfect size for two people, and like the rest of the house, beautifully designed. When I come back to Kyoto, I'm staying here again for sure. Top recommendation."
