The location was very convenient, close to Kyoto station and a subway line. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions and recommendation. The private room was big and toiletries we're provided. The room, bathroom, kitchen, etc were very clean. I recommend this hostel.

Quiet Hostel Near Kyoto Station”
The Lower East Nine Hostel is located next to Kujo Station on the subway network. Kyoto station is next stop but it is more worthwhile and use it to travel to Shijo Station where most central Kyoto landmarks are in the vicinity and to connect to the Hankyu rail network which provides access to Osaka Itami Airport with easier transfers. As it is near Kyoto Station, it is also a suitable base to do trips on the JR network to Osaka, Nara, Uji, Arashiyama and the Shiga region or beyond. Kyoto Station is the terminus for the bus network in Kyoto as well, thus it is also suitable for exploring Kyoto via bus. The rooms are rather comfortable. They have great coffee and drinks at a discount for guests. A reliable laundry facility. The only downside is the layout of the hostel. To get to the dorms or from the common area to the private rooms you have to go outdoors first which is problematic during rain or extreme cold weather. Otherwise, it was a comfortable stay and decent quiet base for exploring Kyoto that is away from the more busy areas around Kyoto Station and Sanjo district.

Amazing place, Fantastic staff.”
This hostel is head and shoulders above the rest. Just 10 minutes from the main station, and a metro station on the corner. There are convenience shops one minute away and a great curry house down the road. The staff are all incredible, friendly, helpful and fun. It's super clean and the beds are large and comfy in the mixed dorm. The kitchen/living room is large, again with electric sockets galore. Downstairs is a coffee shop for small meals, snacks and drinks. Can I move in please?
