Shiori-an is a 10-15 minute walk from the train station, which means you've got easy access to public transportation around the city. It's also right off of a major street, so finding restaurants (and your bearings) up and down the road is simple. The place is clean, the dorm bunks have curtains for privacy, and the hostel also has a washing machine, community lounge, and kitchen. All the staff members I spoke to were friendly and helpful, and spoke English well. I'd recommend taking advantage of the bike rentals (500 yen per day). Perfect if you'd like a good night's sleep in a nice, inexpensive place in a pleasant part of the city.
My memorable stay at Shiori-an”
This place is walking distance from Kyoto station. Very conducive and staff is accommodating. Maduka is very friendly and helpful. The staff speaks good English so there will be no communication barriers with foreigners. Looking forward to stay at Shiori-an sometime in Autumn of 2016.
Heartful and helpful staff”
I just add: with sense of humour So I experienced these three qualities in staff: heartfulness, helpfulness and sense of humour. Very light critic about the location: you could explain that the best way is to choose exit 6 at Gojo Station, take the elevator, turn right, walk some meters, and turn right again, some more meters (at least 10! maybe 20 or 30!!!) and Shiori-an on the left. Would I have known, about 40 or 50 minutes of errance under the heavy rain would have been spared to me and to my luggage!
What I really love about Shiori-Ann is her kitchen with full of equipment. The guests are also fun to talk with and I have an excellent Melbourne mate who is also a vegan like me. What I don't like about is the sound-proofing. Some guests are really heavy-footed but it's none of what the hostel could do. Maybe you should put a sign "light-footed, please" somewhere? And I don't know why I got bed bugs bites all of my body after 6 nights there huhu.
stayed 2 days at shiori-an. good location. near to kyoto station (15mins walk) clean & comfortable room. good facilities. one of the female staff is not very friendly. esp when we first come after a long bus ride. other male staff was pretty helpful & cheerful. overall is a good stay
Best Guesthouse ever!!!”
Shiori-an Guesthouse is definitely the best and cheapest hostel/guesthouse I've checked-in. Big bed, clean facilities, good living room, friendly staff who can speak in English very well. I'll definitely be back here. Thank you!!
The best Hostel ever”
Shiori an was the best Hostel we had so far. It is clean, staff is very friendly and helpful, enough shared showers and toilets, kitchen and coin based laundry! Such a lovely place and nice atmosphere! we definetly would book it again!!!
It's comfortable with a kitchen. I really liked the common area. The dorms were fine but not the best. The beds are fine but I would have liked a more comfortable bed and pillow. It's nice to have the kitchen, free coffee and a group cleaning each day. I did notice once that before the group came in at 11:00 the common room and kitchen were dirty. It was just once but it would have helped if the staff working at the time just went through the area quickly to clean it. At that time many prepare food and eat breakfast. I don't expect guesthouses to be clean all the time but it's hard to eat like this. Otherwise there were no problems. The guests are all talkative and friendly. Some stay in the common area and talk late. I liked having a washer and dryer always available. The price during the August holiday was a little high. (2450) Afterwards it went down to 800-1000. I liked the atmosphere and location. It's easy to walk to Gion or Kyoto station. Thanks for providing a nice place.
Really good ! I had a good feeling about this place, and i have to say that the employed are really helpful and so kind ! One of them, help me to book a ticket on line (everything was writing in Japanese) for the bus to reach an other place in Japan ! I loved this place and i felt really comfortable ! I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone who wants to meet friendly people ! Hope to go back again ;)
Best guest house i have been”
Very nice and helpful young staff who took good care of the hotel (cleanliness). They spent the evenings with the guests in the recreation room, cooking, talking or playing games. You get to meet a lot of new people/friends by staying in this guesthouse. Furthermore the location is great, 10 minutes from kyoto station by foot, and there are two onsens nearby.
Excellent Guest House to stay”
Me and my friend satisfied with the facilities in this guest house. Warm staffs, fluent with english, clean bunk beds and bathrooms made our visit to Kyoto felt great.
Convenient, cosy, value for money”
The guest house is very close to Gojo station and bus stop which makes it so convenience to get to your desired places. It only takes 15 minutes walking to Kyoto station.
A great stay with exceptional cleanliness. The owner has put an immense amount of effort decorating the place. Can confidently say one of the best designed guest house I have ever been to. Owner is also really nice. He waited up for me even though I was really late.
Reasonable price and best service ”
Location : easy to go sight seeing and close to the station Staffs are very friendly and helpful Room is very clean and cozy. Bath rooms are very clean. They have kitchen so you can cook. Restaurants in Kyoto are pretty pricey it’s very good to have kitchen. They have tacoyaki party every friday night with free liquor. It was fun and easy to get along with other travelers. If I visit Kyoto again, I will definitely stay here again
The guest house is very clean! the staff is amazing! there is a kitchen that you can make what ever you want with a lot of tools! the guest house feel like your house!
clean cozy comfortable ”
Hiro-san (staff) is nice guy. His english is good. Bedroom is comfortable clean and cozy. there is seperated room for making noisy but the noise will not reach to bedroom.Bathroom is clean and enough for many person. 2-3 minute from convenience store and 10 minute from kyoto station by walking. if i travel alone to kyoto,i will select this place.
Couldnt recommend shiori ann more, it was very comfortable, clean and the staff were lovely
Clean rooms, many bathrooms and showers available, Locker outside of room (use with your own lock), Kitchen and Lounge area for socializing / Just around the corner of Gojo Station and in walking distance to Kyoto station (approx. 10-15min). Staff was great and very kind. Would stay again if I come back to Kyoto :)
fantastic guest house if a bit tricky to find!”
I stayed for 3 nights and it was a really great stay, transport is great for looking round kyoto and the staff were very knowledgable and really cool, they live on site too and were really friendly and welcoming. The only negative is that I found it very hard to find in the dark when I arrived as it is down a narrow alley that even a taxi driver and restauranteur didn't seem to know existed.. It turned out that when I asked the taxi driver I was in fact stood at the end of the very alleyway - but you wouldn't have known that unless you had gps which he did.. Still once I arrived it was very clean and friendly, they have lockers for everyone and each bed has its own power point, lamp and curtain - lights out at 10 anyway for those that want to sleep. I'd definately stay again!
Doesn't compare to other Kyoto hostels”
Shiori-an Hostel is fine if you get a good Agoda deal like I did (700¥), but you also get what you pay for. Pros: free tea and coffee, comfortable rooms. Cons: the staff is not very pleasant and the vibe leaves a lot to be desired. The 2 showers are inexplicably closed from 11am-3pm for cleaning every day.
