Cant say much because I only stayed one night. But the location was really good. Having trouble to find the exit cause there are too many. Essentially you will exit through a mall and will find the way out. Very near to Gion District and just walking distance. Also with the market (cant remember the name) maybe 2 mins walk?
Thank you so much for staying with us. We feel so happy about what you said. That is wonderful you felt that you were able to explore a lot around our hostel!! Feel free to come back here anytime!! We really look forward to it!! It is very exciting! See you in the future! Have a good day!! Best Regards, Hitomi Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse
GREAT LOCATION AND PRICE”
Pros: -Location is good, near Gion Street and Shopping area in Kyoto. -Price is very good enough for all facilities and location we get. -Room is clean and space is enough for pack/unpack the luggage. I dont think you get this space enough if stay at hotel (most room hotel in Japan have a little space). -Staff is very friendly. -Air Con is cool enough on the summer day. -Water Heater working good. Cons : NOTHING. i very satisfied with facilities that i've got from the price i pay. It is GOOD ENOUGH. :)
Dear Angglia, Thank you for taking time leaving your wonderful review! We are so happy that you enjoyed staying here with us! We are looking forward to see you again! Again, thank you so much! Best regards , Yuko
Affordable Accommodation ”
This hostel is very ideal for backpackers and travel groups. Very affordable and staffs are friendly and accomodating. Comfort rooms are for sharing to some rooms but it is clean. One thing I didn't expect is they don't normally allow guests with children below 10 yrs old but in our case, they let us sign a waiver
Thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear that you liked our place. About the age restriction, since our facilities are mostly shared with other guests we accept over 10 years old. We hope to see you again in the future!
Nice place to stay”
Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse was located at a very strategic location with few convenience stores nearby. It also offers a public area where you can meet other tourists. The only down side is that the room size was bit small, but it definitely worth your bucks.
Thank you for choosing and staying our guest house. We appreciate your feedback. I am glad that you like our guest house. We always would like to welcome you again. I hope that you had good time on Japan. Best regards, Natsumi Khaosan Kyoto Guest house.
Great Stay (Semi Double)”
This is our first time in Kyoto and Im glad we found Khaosan Guesthouse! Our flight arrive at night and we arrive kyoto around midnight, our check in time between 12am-2am, how convenient! Its near to kawaramachi shooping street, nishiki market, gion street and kawaramachi train & bus station. All within walking distance. This place is highly recommended! Friendly staff, great location, transport conveninet.
Thank you for staying our guest house.I am so glad you gave us good review. I hope that you had a good time in japan and stay our guest house again when you come back to Japan.
Value for money”
Pros : 1. Great location. Very near to train station, bus stops & shopping district. Has a family mart beside open 24hrs. 2. Clean sheets, well kept bathrooms + toilets and able to use at other floors if needed. 3. Has a large lounge with TV + kitchen + tables. Great to hang out for meal / discussion etc. 4. Great staff at reception. Sidonie attended to us and offered a smooth check in + helped us to plan our sightseeing trip in Kyoto. Deeply appreciate it. 5. Computers to use at lobby, free welcome drink (iced tea), umbrellas for borrowing, rooftop with simple chairs to hang out. Cons : 1. Room had mild carpet smell (little disturbing in the beginning, but was able to adapt). Overall was a great backpacker place with good value for money. Would definitely recommend to others.
Thank you for choosing us! We try our best to make sure you have a pleasant stay while you are in Kyoto. We hope you had an unforgettable experience in Japan and hope to see you next time!
The room is so small”
The staff was very helpful and the location was good. It's near gion, teramachi, bus station, and subway station. The only lack is the room was so small for me and my friend and they're not provide amenities (towel & tooth brush).
We have larger rooms to accommodate families and groups so please check our website . Thank you for choosing us and we hope to see you again someday.
good place to stay”
Location is great. just 5 mins walk to the 阪急 station, there are 2 supermarket, few convenient store nearby the hostel. Facilities are great. The room is big enough for 6 bed dorm room. The bed and pillow is super comfortable, i like the bed with curtain that allow you to sleep well and keep your privacy. Will choose here again if i visit Kyoto!
Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your positive feedback and hope to see you again here in the near future.
The location of the guesthouse is strategically located in Kyoto. Just about 2 - 3 minutes walk, you will reach the very happening shopping street. Just a couple of minutes of walk, you should be able to find the bus stop and train station.
Pretty good and cheap”
Stayed at the dorm . Just okay for me . But I loved the place . There's a lot of different travellers that you can talk with at the common room . Facilities are great everything you need is there and you can easily cook here . Toilets are clean . There's a lift for heavy luggage . Near to terramachi and kawaramachi shopping area . Family mart & 7E nearby . Worth the money
Very friendly Staff, close to subway and clean”
The first impression is the friendly staff with wonderful smiles. we are offered the hot tea while just entering the guesthouse from cold weather :) room is quite small and lift could be slow during peak time. living room and self-svc kitchen at lvl4 makes us homely. Good location and near shopping arcades. thanks, fellows from Khansan Kyoto guesthouse
Great location but a little too crowded”
Not the best value for money but location is excellent. Just a stroll down to shopping area and about 15 mins walk to Gion. Right next door is a Family Mart. Comfy, friendly staff, well thought out facilities, with elevators. Great for short stay - we were there two nights - but not the place to be to have a peace of mind.
Great experience staying in guesthouse”
It was pleasant to stay here..the management was great..they manage to provide everything we needed..there's a comfortable living room where u can have free drinks andaybe meet some other guests from all around the world.. The obly thing that bothers me is that the laundry operating hours..cause for me, I would plan to wash and dry the clothes after the whole day event, but the operating hours only from 9am to 9pm if not mistaken..which is kinda crash with all my plan, I cant be staying in guesthouse just to do my laundry..I think there's no harm providing longer time for us so that we still able to do laundry at 10 or 11pm.. Overall it was really a pleasant stay
Great place to try Japanese style ryokan”
I had the lower ground room, slept on tatami floor. The room was super clean but guest house was slightly noisy because my room was under the stairs. Beautiful small garden. The owner can speak minimal English. I love the clean ryokan and it was only about 10mins walk from subway.
Good location and clean room ”
The guesthouse located at central of the Kyoto city. It takes about 5 mins walk from kawarachi station, exit 10. And a lot of shopping malls and food around. The staff can speak English and with very good attitude. The room is very clean.
Convenient location with valuable price”
We have 6 people stay 1 nite for 3 bedrooms at Khasoan Kyoto Guesthouse, we experienced a valuable price and got a very convenient location for dinning and shopping, the bedroom and shower room are good enough. Will stay this guesthouse if go to Kyoto.
Budget, cleanlines, location, new experience”
Good for budget travel Kitchen and shared living room were nice to relax and get to see what people do and got to know new company staff was friendly and helpful Location is great! And Cleanliness is really important here! Overall, my stay at here is perfect!
Good stay, would recommend.”
The location itself is quite good, it is near Shijo-Kawaramachi bus station, very near to Nishiki market. The staff were very friendly, allow us to deposit luggage before check-in and after check-out. Would recommend to stay as it is value for money.
Excellent, Affordable Base in the Center of Kyoto”
It is my second time staying at Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse and the services have since improved. Facilities such as the toilets and showers were well-maintained. The staff have been very helpful and friendly throughout our stay as well. The hostel is situated along Teramachi-dori and located near the Gion district as well as both the Hankyu Kawaramachi Station and Keihan Railway's Gion-Shijo Station. As such it is easy to get to Arashiyama, Uji, Fushimi-Inari (the famed torii gates) and Kurama if you are using Khaosan Guesthouse as a base. Furthermore, there are several bus stops around the Shijo-Kawaramachi area which connects the hostel to places like the Golden Pavilion and Kyoto Station. However, these transport services are not cover undered the JR Rail Pass (but covered under the Kansai Thru Pass) and while it is a good base to do exploration of Kyoto and some of its surrounding areas up to Nara and Osaka. It is not a good base if you plan to make frequent use of the JR and Shinkansen lines as you would need to get to Kyoto Station either via bus, subway (which requires a transfer) or via transfer at Tofukuji Station. Otherwise, the Khaosan Kyoto Guesthouse is quite a lively place with several good restaurants in close proximity and decent facilities.
Very happy with my stay. The room is small, but very clean, tidy and comfy enough. The toilets and showers are great too! Really love the friendly staff, they are very informative, able to give me the right direction and information. I will stay here again next time, and will recommend it to my friends!
