Santiago Guesthouse Kyoto
Kyoto,Kyoto - View on map
"Best hostel per budget so far I’ve been to in Japan. You get fridges to store food, kitchen to cook, coin laundry and locker to store small valuables. Downstairs is a cafe where you can eat all day, Nepali chicken curry is very good. Note that you make your own bed. For access, take Keihan train to Kiyomizu-Gojo station and walk here, or JR train to Kyoto station and take the bus 86, 100 202, 207 to Gojozaka bus stop. The hostel is near Gion area and the entrance pathway to Kiyomizu temple. Other attractions are easily reached by bus and I suggest buying 600 yen one day bus pass from the hostel staff if you will ride the bus at least three times in one day, except for Fushimi Inari which is much easier to get to by train. For food, head left towards Gion direction for about 300 metres, there’s a 24 hr Fresco supermarket which sells much cheaper stuff than convenient stores."

Sauna & Capsule Hotel Rumor Plaza (Male Only) - Sky Open-air bath
Gion,Kyoto - View on map
"Staff were happy to assist, but pay attention to what they tell you to do, because Japanese culture is structured and not appreciative of rowdiness, loudness, sloppiness, or inconsiderateness in a hotel environment. Even sh*tfaced drunk salarymen will still behave sensibly here. Anyway, this place was very good value for the money. Very comfortable. Not very easy luggage storage and access (because it really wasn't build to be a foreign tourist hotel). Sauna and bath were great, massage was excellent with zero wait time, and let me tell you - the breakfast buffet was superb! Chillin in your hotel pajamas and eating as much fish, raw eggs, natto, soup, and veggies was very valuable to me - as touring Kyoto all day is exhausting for anyone. I'd stay at this place again in Kyoto for sure. Drop your luggage off, take a bath, rent a bike, enjoy Kyoto. This is bare bones, though, I don't think you can hang out during the day - so if it's rainy or you like to come back to your hotel a lot between activities, maybe it's not the best for you. But if you're a guy with a tight accommodations budget, a good amount of energy and willingness to forego certain hotel features, everything that you DO get here is clean, orderly, comfy, and considerate. Toothbrushes, razors, towels, breakfast, nightlight, lockers, pajamas, massage, no restroom waits, great bath (including a rooftop outdoor bathing area at night!). Thanks again Rumor Plaza!"

Rak kiyomizu
Kyoto,Kyoto - View on map
"I loved everything about Rak kiyomizu! From a state-of-the-art security to approachable and English-speaking staff, to spacious rooms and clean CR and shower rooms, everything is perfect! Though the nearest train station is 10 minutes away, still, I highly recommend this posh hotel to my friends and to all travellers to Kyoto. It is also situated near a supermarket where you can buy some supplies. The hotel is also very near some of Kyoto's sought-after temples and shrines. Very quiet at night. You can sleep peacefully. In a scale of 1 to 10, I'll rate them 9. "

Shikishiki Higashiyama
Gion,Kyoto - View on map
"It really was value for money especially with such a large space in the private room installed with a sink. As with all Japan hostels, the cleanliness is one of if not the best. For location, it was in really close proximity with Higashiyama subway station and there is like an alley full of shops about less than a minute away."

Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse
Kawaramachi,Kyoto - View on map
"I loved the atmosphere and its convenient access to transportation and the different attractions. Considering how much the price of the hotels in Kyoto had been increased during the weekends, 25 dollars/a night is nothing but the reception staffs were not so friendly in my personal opinion but the lady I met works there as a cleaner was really kind and helpful. Her name was Tamaki. Overall, this place wouldn't let down of budget room finders and quiet nice for everything."

Piece Hostel Sanjo
Kawaramachi,Kyoto - View on map
"The best capsule hotel during my stay in Japan. Went to Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto. This is the best among them or maybe I did not choose the right Capsule except for this. Staffs are fluent in English language, helpful, friendly all the good stuff. The facilities are always clean, the capsule is spacious. The most favorite thing I love about this Hostel is the Breakfast meal! Love their rice, varieties too. I even take away during my last day, of course, I asked for the permission first. There are a lot more things to say about this place but I will just stop here. This is the place I wished I stay every single day, next time I visit Kyoto I will surely stay here again. Thank you Piece Hostel Sanjo for the great hospitality."

K's House Kyoto - Backpackers Hostel
Kawaramachi,Kyoto - View on map
"I get to know about K's Guest House while traveling in Japan, first I stayed in K's house Mt Fuji which I found a great value for money, so I decided to try K's Guest House Kyoto. The staff was very nice, helpful and friendly, always giving advice about the best transportation options, they also help booking my seat for the airport limousine. The hostel is strategically located near to ATM, restaurants, bus stops, and Kyoto Station, walking distance to many areas of interest. I really like the concept and ambiance o K's house. Thanks!"

Len Kyoto Kawaramachi Hostel Cafe & Bar
Kawaramachi,Kyoto - View on map
"Staff performance was outstanding. Very helpful with maps and direction/travel advice. They provide luggage storage until 10pm. There's a bus stop right outside to take you to the golden temple and other key tourist locations. You can buy an all day bus ticket for 500yen. Common room was fantastic. Met some interesting travelers to dine and explore Gion with. Beds are comfortable and have curtains for privacy. Bathroom is clean. Best hostel I stayed in Japan. Really enjoyed my Kyoto experience "

HARUYA Higashiyama
Gion,Kyoto - View on map
"It is a well maintain traditional Japanese house turns guesthouse. Less than 5 mins walk to Higashyama station , great for sightseeing around this area if you would like take a break from hustle and bustle of Kyoto Station area. Clean room with necessary amenities. As there is only one shower room , at time need to wait for the turn to take shower during peak hour, not the major issues though. Overall recommended !!"
