J-Hoppers Kyoto Guest House is easily accessible from Kyoto Station. I rented a bike near the station and it only took me about 5 minutes to ride to the hostel. There is a 24 hour 7-11 right across the street which is great for ATM, and basic goods. The staff was helpful and everyone I met was able to communicate...

I really enjoyed my stay at J-Hoppers Kyoto. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and English was readily available (though not a big factor to me). You can purchase a one-day bus pass from the front desk, which is very helpful as there is a bus stop right across the street corner. The hostel itself is about 10-15 min...

The personnel spoke a very good English. For every 3 days stayed in the hostel you receive a gift from the Hostel (different activities for free). Bunk beds not very comfortable (because it was moving), but they were large enough to put your personal bag close to you. 15mins on foot from the Train station, but about 20 mins from...

Close to JR Kyoto station and many convinience stores and izakaya around there, it's a good place in terms of budget. Amenities are very good, two pc's, free wifi, a kitchen and a living room. Only problem is that there's no elevator and the stairs are very steep.

Almost everyone arrived at Kyoto Station when visiting Kyoto. J-Hoppers Kyoto is just few mins walk from there. Living room is spacy and cool. There are also tatami room in the 5th floor. Bath and Shower rooms are clean and nice. Bus stop to Kiyomizudera and Gion is just across the street, so does 7Eleven.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

“Don't be put off by the dorms. I thought privacy might have been an issue, but with the curtains around each bunk, you certainly don't feel any anxiety about being in a dorm!”
