Cannot relate to bad reviews as my partner and I had a really comfortable 5 night stay here. While no fancy hotel, the guesthouse was clean - not a single bug and the rooms (we stayed in a private double) were spacious with comfortable futons and storage space and a fan. The aircon was efficient and a very small fee for a whole week. The manager was friendly and helpful when we arrived and the guesthouse seemed popular with other guests. For the price I was extremely satisfied. Only 5 mins from subway which takes you to kyoto in very little time. Stay here if you want a real japanese experience in a quiet friendly neighbourhood.

I stay at Green Peace for months on end whenever I'm in the Kansai region. Most recently I stayed from November 1 to February 1, and it remains a great little deal in the expensive city of Kyoto.
Great location, especially if you're looking for a quiet and more serene atmosphere than hotels in city center.
The house is on the older/dated side and it can sometimes be kind of dirty. But the cleanliness level depends completely on how considerate or inconsiderate the other house guests are.The manager has a cleaning woman come a few times a week, but guests are still expected to clean up after themselves and be mindful of others. So the quality of your stay here is kind of a luck of the draw as to whether or not other travelers during your stay are mindful of keeping common areas clean.
The manager really is a sweet woman; always a kind greeting and smile. During the holidays she even made a traditional homemade New Year's soup and delivered it to each guest to eat in their room. A very kind woman who is doing her best to keep her guesthouse running smoothly.
All in all, it's a simple place to sleep and keep your stuff while you go out and enjoy Kyoto.

Room Tip: There are a few cats, so be mindful of that if you have allergies!

This is not a fancy three star hotel: it is a guesthouse! Many local guests stay here for a long-term, looking for a job or starters. The landlady herself lives here too, opposite the common living room. Good kitchen facilities, nice neighboorhood (lots of students and education-related-individuals)

Room Tip: this place is often sold out, so book ahead!

In Aug 1985 we cycled in Kyoto with two small children and stayed at Green Peace. It was small, clean and basic but everything what we were looking for. Chikako was pleasant and spoke a few word of Dutch as she had worked in Amsterdam at the Okura hotel. The price of a bed was 1300 yen per bed per day. Not much different from today's prices. If Chikako managed to have stayed in business that long, she must be doing something right.

This was the worst experience of our whole vacation here in Japan! We could not find a reasonable priced hotel in Kyoto anymore and therefore booked the green peace in Tokyo. As it was very cheap we did not expect to much but what we got when we arrived was even worse! A note on the front door to read the note inside. An explanation where our room is and the message that we will see the owner after 2pm. Arrival hall was part of the extremly dirty downstairs kitchen. We went upstairs where we could find our room. 2 beds on the floor (which is japanese style and would not be too bad if everything would have been clean). A night lamp that was not working a small table and thats it. The upstairs kitchen was even worse and in the kitchen they had this mouse shock to keep mice away... Which gives you a weird feeling when you have to sleep on the floor. 3 cats running around... Also not too good if you are allergic to cats. The blankets are teribble. Very thick that you can almost not fold them. Felt like a wooden board! Everywhere all kinds of notes that told you what to do and what not. the notes are written in a very unfriendly manner that this also does not give you a homely feeling. After i had seen the shower all good will was gone and the same evening for other hotels in kyoto and found something where we could stay beginning the next night. The next morning we got up very early packed our stuff and got out and stayed the next 3 nights in a different hotel in kyoto. This might be kind of ok for backpackers that are used to some things but not for people who wanted to stay in a hotel but could not find anything anymore...
