Ikoi-no-ie, Kyoto
Charming and convenient
Great hostel, nice, clean and cozy, would love to stay there again. PROS: 3 min walk to a subway station, 15 min walk to the main Kyoto train station; nice kitchen with a stove, microwave and various utensils for common use; laundry machine on the roof top; a 24 hour supermarket is about 5 min walk away, also a 7-eleven is 3 min walk away (which in Japan is much better than in North America). We were lucky to get the room on the top 4th floor, which has its own balcony with a view and no other neighbors. CONS: the place was initially a bit hard to find, the taxi driver had to spend extra 2-3 min asking some locals for direction. Streets in this area are narrow, a taxi is too big to turn into the street. My advise, print or show a detailed map. Also, beware that the front desk is in another building a street away and closes at 10 PM. No elevators so prepare for walking up/down the stairs. Overall: we really liked the place.

Backpackers place with premium cost
Location is good,but for the 300 euro I paid for 2 nights ,very expensive,for sleeping on the floor and no furniture at all(just a ridiculous small table with 2 tea cups), my room located on the third floor no elevator,with big travel bags ,quite disturbing to reach and to leave,no wifi at all they will rent you a router for extra $$ and in the add,they say free wifi. overall ,never go there again

Japanese Style Hotel
For Foreigner,It was difficult to find the Hotel from the station,no clearance guidance.The Hotel has many houses.The Reception and public area are separated. Bed room is not big enough for 3 people, the shower room is very small.

Service was not so good
Wi-Fi wasn't working and I was offered to switch for a different room with working Wi-Fi but shared toilet for the same price. Uh, noooo way. So I just used my phone data. Smelly garbage in the hallway on my floor, took them really long to replace a burnt light bulb. The breakfast was good, but you can only have it between 8 and 9 and my tea pot was dirty. Good location, but really not the best service.
