    To our surprise our room had bunk beds and not a double one, so check before booking. In any case the guest house has a nice atmosphere, basic but very clean and good position. We went during winter and it was very cold, the room had warm air system, warm blankets. If you are looking for maximum comfort, not your...

    For the price, this place was pretty good. I got a private room for about $40. And the bathroom in shared. The only thing is that the walls are thin and you can hear other people through them. Hard to sleep at times. The employees are pretty friendly and help you plan out what you want to see, which I...

    Perfect spot in Kyoto, close to main several important temples, bus lines, train lines, grocery stores, & the Gion. I had a single Japanese-style room, with futon on the floor. The bathrooms were down 2 flights of stairs. It never seemed crowded. Hair dryers provided. Fully equipped kitchen.

    Book this for a last minute trip to Kyoto. Weekends tend to be a lot more expensive. It's in a decent location, reachable by bus from the centre, and quietly tucked down a side street. Clean, and comfortable rooms. The bathrooms are a little bit of a walk away if you're staying top floor. Staff were fantastic, and super helpful.

    On a last minute trip to Kyoto, found that I had unwisely chosen to come when everyone else in the world seemed to be in town to view the autumn leaves and found myself without a place to stay. I randomly contacted various guesthouses which - no surprise - were all completely full. Gojo was one of them. Initially they...

    We had a wonderful stay at Gojo Guesthouse Annex! The traditional Japanese tatami double room was with it's little zen front yard and it's interior design more than comfortable and relaxing. The staff was really friendly and always there to help us, we could easily communicate in English. With the relatively low price and the unique atmosphere the Gojo Guesthouse...

    I felt very comfortable at the Gojo Annex. It is a traditional looking house. I had a room with a comfortable bed and a chair to sit on. The sitting room is done in retro 70s style, with a record player. The two people I met working there were very nice and spoke English well. It felt like staying in...

    Special experience to stay at traditional Japanese-style bedroom. We stayed at family room with 4 pax, it was quite packed with limited space after we moved in our luggage, we learnt to set-up Japanese Futon by our own, it was fun. Overall, the hostel is clean & tidy, the staffs are helpful & friendly to assist us. They provide a...

    “We stayed in the bunk bed room. While the room was a little small it had an interesting view into a temple/shrine across the road and we found the beds to be comfortable. The air conditioning unit was quiet and worked very well, meaning that we did not get cold during the Winter nights.”
