    I stayed at K's the entire week I was in Kyoto. I was in a mixed dorm for six people. The room was small but clean, airconditioned and had storage lockers. The bathrooms and the common areas were really nice for a hostel and very clean! The common area was very new looking and nicely set up. The staff was very friendly and so helpful! I met a lot of cool people there and had a great time!

    One thing to note, when I first arrived I was given a space in a room in the older building. It smelled rather moldy and I asked to be moved to another room. They moved me over to the new building and everything was smooth sailing from there on out.

    This seemed to be a fairly standard hostel. It was very near Kyoto Station, which makes it convenient if you plan on exploring the surrounding region from there. It can be a little difficult to find at first.

    Backpackers Hostel K's House in Kyoto is the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. Clean, quiet, friendly staff. The common area is nice a spacious and good for meeting people. They also have a vending machine for beer. I felt safe traveling alone, and I would definitely come back if I'm ever in Kyoto.

    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. It was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities one could look for in a hostel. There is free wifi on every floor, clean bathrooms/showers, helpful and friendly English speaking front desk staff, a bar/restaurant attached, a kitchen, a tv room, a rooftop deck, lots of storage for your pack, towels for rent, clean beds, and information on nearby sites and things to do. I would highly recommend K's to anyone.
