Great budget guest house near teramachi road
Khaosan guest house has great position for the location, which is near teramachi shopping area. The condition of guest house is fair for us, however it needs some improvement regarding the room facilities. Recommended for budget stay.

Convenient and clean
The area had just about everything you needed. It was convenient to the temples and shopping. A bus stop was just around the corner. If you're so inclined, a small amusement park, Hanayashiki, is out side the back window of this place. Amusement Park aficionados know about this place and say it has the best ice cream. I would stay here again if ever in this part of the world. It made doing so many other things part of the my trip doable because of how affordable it is.

The location is great with very cheap price. However, the air circulation in my room is poor so the room smells

This is just a hostel which has some single rooms. You have to make your own bed and towels are for hire. The room had an unpleasant smell. Otherwise clean and well-located.

The only place for me in Kyoto (at least till now)
The room is tiny yet comfortable and clean indeed. Not smelly at all which may happen in a 3 or 4 star hotels. I spent three nights at the 4/F common room with my friends, over dinner and beer! Anyone who is not looking for a hotel with other facilities and accept sharing space with others, Khaosan Guesthouse is definitely a good place.
