A-yado Gion is in such a great location. It is on a quiet street close to the beautiful Gion area, and is a few minutes away from some of the busier streets of Kyoto. The staff was super friendly and told me which places I should visit over my three-day stay. Their common room was a great place to meet new people, and even had beer and snacks to purchase (at a very affordable price), to save me from having to walk to the shops. Overall I had a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: The shared dorm was fine. There are curtains around the beds for extra privacy.

This place is truly meant for backpackers. Located at Gion, it is a little difficult to get here if you dont have google maps.
The bunk beds are huge, the washrooms are clean and well-equipped. They vaccum the area every morning at 10 am. You can wash your clothes for free.
The biggest highlight is the cafeteria at this hostel. It is so well stocked. they have everything from noodles, water, juices, beer, chips, snacks everything...they all have a cost and you just need to put the money into a small box (so trustworthy).
They offer free bread and coffee to their guests as breakfast.
The owners are extremely sweet and warm. they go out of their way to help you out in terms of places to see and moving around.
So, if you are on a low budget (in terms of accommodation) you should definitely stay here.

Central and very close to public transportation at Gion area / Kyoto. Dorm rooms are enough large. Clean. Has social area and small kitchen. Free tea & coffea and very simple breakfast ( bread+margarine). Friendly and helpful staff. Recommended.

The staff here are excellent, really really helpful and they make sure you have an easy visit and stay. Beds are typical for what you pay but the real gem is the lounge area upstairs. A good space, free breakfast tea and coffee, cheap snacks and even cheaper beer. Very well located, a short walk from the city centre and main train lines.
