This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Fully recommended and great location, just 5 minutes from the "kawaramachi" station. This is the place where Gion and Inari shrine are near and this is the place I recommend. Nice rooms, many toilets/bathrooms, 2 good big commonrooms too!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is a well presented, cool backpackers in an excellent location - close to public transport and the sights. The staff are helpful with good english, and they provide lots of information on what to see in Kyoto and how to get there, how much etc. WARNING if you are a light sleeper beware! Very thin walls, we were kept up half of our stay because of snoring next door. And also low quality mattresses/pillows made sleeping comfortably quite difficult. Overall though, good place.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We have been satisfied with Khaosan. Location next to all the nightlife, good transportation to the sights. Everything is new and clean. Nice living room and very comfortable kitchen (better than in other hostels we stayed in). We had a private double room. It was very small, but this is normal for this kind of accomodation in Japan. We had a lovely "do it yourself sushi Halloween party".

Having been refurbished in late 2010 the hostel is in excellent condition. It really deserves 5 stars throughout. It would be very difficult to find any faults with this hostel even if you tried. The staff are very helpful, the toilets and washing/shower facilities are excellent. Computer use facilities are superb with fast wifi everywhere. Don't bother with the expense of hotels.
