K’s House is a popular budget guesthouse/hotel near Kyoto Station. It’s a sociable place that might just remind you of an Australian backpacker’s guesthouse.
Based on the sociable and inexpensive guesthouses found in Australia and New Zealand, this popular guesthouse/hotel is a sociable and inexpensive place to stay, hang out and meet other travelers. There’s a mix of dorm rooms and simple but serviceable private rooms, as well as large common areas, and even an on-site restaurant and bar (something of a rarity in Japanese guesthouses). As you might expect, K’s House has everything a backpacker might need, from laundry, to wifi, to a friendly English-speaking staff (most of whom have done their share of backpacking). And to top it all off, K’s House can help arrange onward travel around the country at rock-bottom prices and they can book you into other K’s House branches in places like the Mt. Fuji region, Tokyo and Takayama.
