I can’t thank Hostel Kyoto Arashiyama enough! I spaced out on notifying them about late arrival, the reservation states the office closes at 8pm. Realized it on the train after 8pm. Got to the hostel just before 9pm and the gentleman was there waiting for us, with our reservation printed out and smiling! I have no idea how late he was planning on waiting but it saved me!!! Arigayato!! Super clean, comfy! We got the room with 4 bunks and couch, worked out great! AC worked. Great quiet location close to a ton of attractions in the remote part of town! Monkey park, bamboo forest, Tenryuji temple, cute kimono forest at the local train station, river walk are all within 5 minutes! Also, if you get the JR pass (we bought it at the airport in Tokyo as it was the same price as a return ticket to Kyoto on the Shinkansen, and it was all inclusive for a week on all JR lines, including a big network once we returned to Tokyo!), there is a local train from Kyoto station that is included (San-In line), stops at Arashiyama station. From there it’s maybe 8 minute walk - flat and easy, I did it with suitcases and two kids no problem! It also got us back to the city for some of the other attractions. Loved our stay!!! We didn’t use it but they had a coin washer dryer if needed, you can use the fridge in the reception area and they had a free coffee machine:) they only have maybe four rooms, super friendly and sweet!

I’m glad I book this hotel. Within Arashiyama. Arashiyama is a beautiful place and is known for temples, bamboo forest, lakes. With lots of nature and things to do. Close to train stations, convenience store, restaurants and tourist attractions. The hostel is very clean and the keepers/owners are very kind and accommodating. The beds are comfy. Reasonable price.

The location was fantastic and the hosts were amazing. They were friendly, had great information on the area and very very sweet. We loved our room. We had our own private bathroom and the WiFi was fast and speedy. Laundry was available as well as free coffee and tea in the morning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return again. Aloha!
