Will definitely stay here again”
Everything about my stay was exceptional. The environment, the staff, the cleanliness, the location, and the food - each exceeded my expectations. Within walking distance to many attractions as well as very close to subway and bus stops. Incredible home cooked dinners (for a very affordable price) and FREE amazing breakfast. Clean rooms and showers. Very helpful and kind staff. I never felt uncomfortable or awkward, just very cozy. Wish I could have spent more time here. Thank you for such a nice stay in Kyoto!

Homey”
If you find a place where you want to feel like home, Ga-Jyun guest house is the perfect choice. I arrived in the morning, when the check in time isn't available yet. But the staff offering breakfast to me. The one that I haven't paid for. The host are very friendly. The shortage is because this kind of old house that the floor is squeking everytime you walk around & the room is kind of cold (because the weather) that make it little bit smelly like wet rug. But the bed is good, it's warm & nice & the breakfast is ultimate. Btw, I did a big mistake by offering food to their dog, Jiro, which is a big, big mistake. So, I'd like to say sorry to Ga-Jyun's host, hopefully they'll accept it with a big heart.

SO COZY AND NICE PLACE ”
WE LOVED THE PLACE! the owner and all his stuff are so extremely friendly and nice. as the owner wants that his guests are eating fruit (which is quite expensive in japan), he offers 10 different kind of fruits for breakfast, a self made miso soup and everything you can find at a bakery. best breakfast i had so far during my 6 months of traveling in asia. on friday he offers bbq for free, every monday matcha tea course. every second evening he drives his guest for free to a japanese sento. next to the entrance there is an area with some tables where it is really easy to get in contact with other travelers, so a good place also for solo travelers. we loved this place so much, for us much better then the stylish and modern hostel we have stayed before. definitely recommend this place

Highly recommended !!!

Homely guesthouse with great breakfast”
The guesthouse is a good 15 minute walk from the main nightlife strip around Kiyamachi but quite close to Higashiyama subway station. With only a few rooms the place has a homely feel and the staff are very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast alone makes this place worth staying with a spread of food unlike I've seen anywhere else in Japanese hostels. Nice back yard, balcony on one of the rooms. Access to laundry and dryer (100/200yen) is convenient. Some street noise at night from cars driving past but not too bad. The guesthouse owner also owns a Sento and will arrange free use including drop off and pickup on certain days. Another great bonus of staying here!

Fantastic staff, fabulous breakfast & the cutest puppy ever!!”
Pros: Public Transport nearby Walking distance to all of the main attractions in the Higashiyama area Cozy dorm room (with heater for cold weather) Amazing breakfast buffet (tea, coffee, juice, bread w/jam, butter, honey,donuts, sweet & savory rolls, gorgeous assortment of fresh fruit (persimmon, pear, pineapple, grapes, kiwi, banana, strawberry & citrus), scrambled egg & sliced tomato with cheese. BEST Hostel breakfast in Japan!! The owner & his staff are so kind..... they treated me like family both days I stayed with them. (Thank you again for the invitation to dinner...... it was incredibly delicious both nights!!) Last, but definitely not least, the Shiba-Ken puppy Giro is the cutest thing ever. Agoda should set it up so we can attach photos to our reviews. I have some good ones to post of this amazing Guesthouse. :-) Cons: ZERO Bottom Line: You should definitely book here while visiting Kyoto!
