This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed two nights at IchiEnSou Guesthouse and it was an absolutely lovely experience. The guesthouse has one 4-bed female dorm room, a 6-bed mixed dorm room, and shared restroom, kitchen and dining areas. The location is ideal in central Kyoto (near cultural sites such as temples, Minamiza Theatre, and the Kyoto Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as major shopping intersections like Shijo Kawaramachi). Instructions on how to find the guesthouse is included in the confirmation email (print it out and bring it with you, otherwise, the location may be a little difficult to find). Yashi, the house manager, was a wonderful host and extremely helpful with sightseeing tips and suggestions. He also made us a delicious breakfast catering to vegetarian diets! There is free Internet access at the guesthouse, which is helpful in planning out your day or keeping in touch with friends and family. The prices are reasonable (approx. $35/person/night for us) and the accommodation is superb. I would definitely recommend staying at IchiEnSou Guesthouse when visiting Kyoto!
