    It was a very nice stay in this hostel. The place has everthing you need and it is spotless. Good located close to one of biggest attractions of Kyoto. The only down side is huge trafic right outside what may cause some issues for light-sleepers (earplugs advised).

    I enjoyed my stay here, it was very peaceful; however the social atmosphere could be better (as I was a solo traveler). It was located out of the hustle and bustle of Kyoto and required extra traveling to get to attractions. Very clean and helpful staff

    At first, we made mistake and go to the similar hostel (near Kyoto station) but there's two hostel named Next door so please pay attention. Despite of this, this hostel is so homey and comfortable. The location is very near to Busway stop (in front of the hostel). The room is very clean. Although they dont have pantry like what i had in asakusa, but it's enough. My friend left the money in the locker on the day we have check out but the staff kindly save it for us. :) will come back for sure if we have a trip to kyoto :)

    I stayed in the ladies dorm at The Next Door Lower East Nine last October and I still can't forget what a good experience it was. I liked that the female door had its own private bathroom area. I also liked that it had a properly equipped (and very clean!) kitchen... and of course, the best thing about the hostel was the specialty coffee on the ground floor! As a coffee lover, its the best thing to be able to wake up and start a day of exploring with some very good coffee. I would stay there again (and hope to do so soon!).

    BEST VALUE FOR MONEY, SERIOUSLY (the best coffee makers in Kyoto too!)”
    LE9 was this little hostel at the heart of Kyoto where value for money is not being wasted. :) I love this place! The rooftop is just so gorgeous too. It it overlooking Toji temple. Location of the hostel is just right, just a few meters from Toji station. And Toji station is just one station away from Kyoto Station via Kintetsu Trailways. :) All in all, it was very convenient for me to go around Kyoto in general. I never had to worry about going home to this place. They were very accomodating. My favorite part about their hostel is their shower room and vanity area. Ask them to make you coffee every morning. My personal favorite is the mocha. I would stay here again on my next visit to Kyoto!

    The hostel is located not far from subway station, only 1 stop from kyoto station. It's also near Lawson and local eatery that opens 24hrs. I chose the bunk bed and it's spacious enough. Toilets and kitchen are clean. Staff is very nice and helpful but the best thing about this place is coffee.

    Very clean, including the room, toilet, bathroom and public areas. Nice and rich breakfast. Helpful and nice staff. Beautiful design of the hostel so that you can feel very relaxed. There are two supermarkets nearby. But one bad point is the shower sometimes cannot work well. When I take a hot shower, the water may suddenly turn cold.

    I would recommend this hostel 120%!!! 강추!”
    Pros: 1. Very very kind staff helping out with all kind of things(when I was involved in a car accident during my stay, one of the staff whose name was 'Lin'jjan came to my hospital to help me even though she wasn't on duty.) There was no one to help me in Kyoto as I was a solo traveler and I had to make an urgent phone call to the hostel to find someone who can help me out. I was really impressed by their kindness. Hontoni Arigatogozaimasita. 너무 감사했어요!) 2. Gorgeous view at the rooftop 3. Delicious espresso coffee made with La Marzocco (one of my favorite coffee machine) & well-trained baristas Cons: No elevator BUT as previously mentioned, very kind staffs are always ready to help you.

    I stayed one night at the hostel before going to my next destination. The facilities are very good and clean, the dormitory is also very good as there's not too many beds. Staff was helpful to indicate things to see and do. Maybe an elevator is the only thing missing but the staff will help you to carry your luggage if you have a heavy one.
