The Lund House - A Simply Perfect Hostle.
The Lund House is a small simplistic hostel in a nice and quiet part of town. It is still easily accessible, however, with the closest bus being line 17 or 206 (Summer 2018). The Lund House is very small and compact, but as long as you have pleasant roommates the place feels like a wonderful home. I would gladly stay here again. And at their listed price you can't beat it!

Cozy staff
Incredibly friendly staff and service as soon as I walked through the door. Beds were cozy with outlets, a shelf, and curtains. Small kitchen facilities but gets the job done. Even some free whiskey and soft drinks! Ramen shop downstairs is absolutely delicious. Train station near by. Bike rental was reasonable and the bath was heaven. I especially loved the helpful binders full of information about the attractions in Kyoto and bus system.
