5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hosts were very attentive and helpful, providing info about places to visit and eat among other things. The place I've felt more welcome in my whole 3 weeks in Japan. The guest house was very clean, comfortable and at a good location.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

The hotel is really accessible to train station and the staff (Sayaka) is really friendly and accomodating. I would definitely stay again when I get back to Kyoto.

Best hostel in Kyoto

I highly recommend Juyujin if you're staying in Kyoto. The staff including Sayaka are very welcoming and helpful and will go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. The rooms and bathrooms were always clean and although there is not a lot around the location it's easy to get to where you need to go with the subway around the corner. There also wasn't much noise around.

初めてゲストハウスに泊まりました。チェックイン  締切21時ぎりぎりでしたが事前に電話し、とても 親切に対応下さり気持ちよくチェックインできました。 ツインのお部屋をシングルユースで泊まりましたが 圧迫感が無く、ぐっすり寝ることが出来ました。 普段ビジネスかシティホテルばかりなので トイレ、シャワー共同というのに違和感は否めませんが、 清潔感があって快適でした。 近くの和食の美味しいお店も紹介下さり 一人旅なら また寄らせて頂きたいと思います。
