Good location & fantastic amenities”

free wifi on every floor, kitchen, very clean, A/C

My husband and I stayed at K's for 4 nights in Kyoto. We were really impressed with how bright and spacious the hostel was; it really feels like a cutting edge, modern hostel that is perfect for budget travelers who want a place where they will be comfortable. The hostel had lots of information about things to see & do as well as places to eat in Kyoto. Although we did not take advantage of the cafe/bar, the prices on drinks were incredibly reasonable, especially in Japan where alcohol is very expensive. We also appreciated that the hostel provides many things like chargers, guidebooks, and umbrellas for free, and many other travel items can be purchased for nominal prices. The dorm we stayed in was spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. The bunks were sturdy, and the cubbies under each bed that were lockable had more than enough space to store all of our travel gear. The rooms were bright and airy, and we really appreciated that we could use the wifi from the comfort of our own bedroom without having to always trek to the common area. Only downside is that although K's is only a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station, the area it is in did not seem to be great for restaurants or nightlife. It's quite a walk to the Gion district and other more lively areas, and we frequently just went back to the train station area when we were looking for food. Not a dealbreaker, but there are definitely more vibrant parts of town to be in! The location is really convenient for those using Kyoto as a base for other day trips.

Very convenient, value for money!”

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!

We found a great deal on this site and jumped on it and we feel that we lucked out in every possible way. Easy to find the place, super clean, very well thought, the facility has well equipped self-catering kitchen, eating area with lounge, very good information board. If you forget to bring cords for your phones, you can rent them with 1000 yen deposit. McDonald's, Lawson, Mini Stop convenience stores nearby, and walking distance to many eateries. The reception can give you a map of places to eat, and a very useful map of Kyoto and give you great advice. We were satisfied beyond our expectations. I will stay at K's House in different locations in Japan in the future. I would advise everyone to use this hostel clean so that they can keep the cost down.

safe location, clean bathroom, knowledgeable staff

This hostel can easily be negotiated on foot from Kyoto Station. Just go out from the Central exit of JR Kyoto Station, cross the street towards Kyoto Tower and walk along Karasuma-dori (the street on the east-side road of Kyoto Tower, near Starbucks). Turn right at the intersection of Shichijo-dori and Karasuma-dori and walk for about 5 minutes until you reach Kawaramachi-dori. Cross a signal and then turn left on the first street along Kawaramachi-dori. You will find K’s House (white building) and Zen Café on the road to your right. This hostel is very easy to like for many reasons: knowledgeable and helpful staff, clean shared bathrooms, spacious common areas (living room, rooftop terrace and kitchen), comfortable dorm beds and free wifi. It was raining a lot when I was in Kyoto, and the hostel provides free umbrellas that you can borrow for the day. The Zen café beside it is a nice place to get drinks and meet people but is a bit dear. The hostel also arranges tours and sells bus passes. The hostel made me feel very secure. Their luggage storage room has a lock and can only be opened by a staff member. Will definitely stay here again.

THE BEST HOSTEL IN KYOTO!”

Stayed with them for three nights and it was such a shame I only did. K’s House Kyoto is best hostel I ever stayed at in Japan for my 10 days trip as a solo traveler. I arrived early in Kyoto as I took the night bus and the reception was open at 7AM. Asked them to store my luggage before check in and they offered me to use the bathroom which was oh boy! amazing! A hot & cold shower and tub (on the second floor). I had a good conversation with the staffs learning more about Japanese cuisine and history, they’re pretty fluent in English. What makes it more lovable is the bed, ugh made it harder for me to get up early. Met a lot of backpackers here and had late night conversations as everyone’s hanging out at the lounge area. Location-wise: 10-15 mins walk to Tokyo Station and a bus stop away to tourist spots. Cleanliness is natural for them, it was top-notch for a hostel. Tip: Be there at 7PM in Zen Cafe for the happy hour on the cocktails and check the view on the rooftop at night. 👌🏼

Best Choice in Kyoto”

If you're looking to save money and have somewhere safe to stay I highly recommend K's House. I have stayed here before and always come back. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. One thing I really enjoy is they have a very big functional bath tub. I prefer to take baths versus showering so this was very nice. The staff is super friendly, available to help you if you have any questions. I had to ship a box of stuff to my next hotel and the staff did everything they could to help me with that. I am truly grateful for their service. I also got really lucky by staying on a not so busy day and there was only one other person in my dorm room. Also please check out the roof top for a beautiful view of Kyoto!

Very good Hostel, and classical backpacker hostel. Highly recommended for single traveler. The Staff are so nice, they are willing to speak in English. I have a place wanna good, which is not in Kyoto but near Kyoto, the staffs are really helpful for helping me searching the transportation. The hostel has a very big common area, you can enjoy doing nothing, but staying there. The staff would also organize some activities with different parties. Backpackers can join their activities, and easy to meet others from other countries. They have a cafe and bar next to the hostel. It is very easy to find a breakfast or brunch, gather and meet new friend in the bar at night as well.

The cleanest Hostel, ever!”

We had a great time at K's Hostel. This has to be the cleanest place you would ever see. They have very friendly and helpful staff (well versed in English, which was a big PLUS). I would recommend it to anyone staying in Kyoto. We had a private bunk bed room, so not sure about the dorms. The only thing I would add is the quality of breakfast next door in the cafe was very average. It was not worth the money. This is not a party hostel and didn't find other travels interested in making friends. I guess there are a few students who live here on a long term basis. All in all, a great place to stay for a few nights in Kyoto.

Good value for money”

Really had a nice and relaxing stay at K's House Kyoto! In my previous travels I haven't considered checking in at a backpackers hostel since I envisioned it as untidy and crowded. However, after staying in K's House for 3 nights, I found out that it's unlike what I thought it is. The room was tidy and there was a locker to keep all your stuff. Even the bathroom and shower rooms were good too. :)

Central location and clean facility”

The hostel was only about 10 minutes from Kyoto Station by foot. This was really convenient to catch trains and not have to pay extra money to transfer stations. There are also bus stops all around; you can purchase a Kyoto bus day pass and get to many of the shrines quite easily. Having been to hostels in Europe, I expected the toilet and shower facilities to be quite gross and, thus, was hesitant to share with other occupants on the floor. However, they were cleaner than most bathrooms I've seen even in private hotels. Everyone chips in to keep it clean as well, so you get a great sense of community. You're not allowed to wear your shoes inside the hostel. They provide indoor slippers and little lockers to store your shoes. That gave me peace of mind that the carpet in our room was indeed clean. The staff speak English and are there most of the day (not sure about late night). They will store your luggage immediately before and after your stay for free. That helped us a lot.

great!”

K's Backpacker hostels are some of the better ones I've been in. They're small, but cozy, and you meet some interesting people in the common areas. This one is great because they also offer breakfast for 500 yen, and they have a bar to partake in after a long day of touristing.

Terrific hostel!”

Clean, welcoming, friendly, comfy beds

K's hostels are great places to stay! I stayed at a K's in Hiroshima and had sucha great experience that when I heard there was another in Kyoto I knew that's where I would be staying! This one is a little hard to find but it has a great location near the main train station and neat temples. I HIGHLY recommend this hostel to anyone!
