Good Hostel
Staff is friendly and helpful, especially in making reservations or looking at websites that are only in Japanese. Common rooms are nice, though I liked the one in building one better than the one in building two (where I was in). Only suggestion for K's house would be to get rid of the leather looking slippers in building two and get the same ones as in house one, because the leather ones look old and smell bad.

Solid place, very clean, bar, no breakfast
K's would be a great hostel in my opinion if I hadn't had to switch beds each night for three days. I'm not sure what happened to my stay in particular, and having to pack and go through the check in and out process each day annoyed the hell out of me. But, I imagine that particular aspect of the experience is rare, and I think that you will enjoy K's otherwise. They have two buildings for dorms, both have nice and similar rooms. There is a bar downstairs which is good for meeting people at night. I did not like that breakfast was not included, and was also a flat-rate all you can eat. When breakfast is free I tend to meet a lot more travelers which I would have enjoyed here a lot. Location is near the train station and metro.

Just great!
K's House Kyoto is, by far, the best hostel I've been to. Everything is very clean and organized. Beds are comfortable and there is convenient storage lockers under the beds so as to avoid luggage all over. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would not think twice about staying there again!

Stay for one day
I stayed for one night over here in May 2012, it's pretty close to the station and finding it was not much of a problem as the blue sign board was clearly visible from the bus stop(costs 220 yen via bus from Kyoto station). Rooms are clean, toilets were clean too, though soap, shampoo have to be bought or bring along which are reasonably priced (soap is 100 Yen). Food is reasonably priced and drinks are pretty cheap, including shochu and sake, around 390 Yen I think. Recommended for all, cheap, clean, and convenient!

Brilliant!
Fantastic hostel, the best I've stayed in. Everything was very clean and modern, the staff were very friendly, free wireless internet, excellent kitchen facilities, cheap drinks at the bar, an extensive breakfast buffet, what else could you want? If I am ever in Kyoto again I will be staying there for sure!

Sets a new standard in excellence
Incredible. The design and layout of this place is great. It's like an Ikea showroom. The whole place is spotlessly clean. There's a large comfortable common area, roof terrace or excellent bar to hangout out in. All alcoholic drinks at the bar cost 390 yen -- cheap by Japanese standards. The staff are very efficient and friendly. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and air conditioned. There are large storage lockers in the base of the bunk beds -- so large you can easily fit two large backpacks into each, but you need to bring your own padlock. Access to the rooms is via a personal-issue, contactless electronic smart card -- nice touch. The location is convenient too, about ten minutes' walk from Kyoto main train station. Be sure to book in advance though as word is getting out about this place -- whilst I was traveling around Japan, about half the backpackers I ran into were talking about how great K's in Kyoto was. I would give this place six stars if I could.
