“ The owner is very nice but this does not compensate for the lack of comfort of this hostel.
You sleep on a very thin mattress on the floor, which is quite uncomfortable. Moreover, there is a fuel heater in the room that shuts down after 3 hours. So you need to wake up in the middle of the night to put it on again.
The shower and bathroom are outside and this clearly not convenient when it is cold. I stayed in an other hostel in Kyoto for a cheaper price and a much better comfort. ”
Thank you very much for your comment. Please ask us If you want to have other mattress, We gave to 2 under mattress for every one, The heater which only 3hours is sorry, but If you are cold please ask us we will give other over futon for you. The old Kyoto house is no bath room in the house which mean we have a lot of public bath around here because The street of Kyoto is very small so fire car can not come into the small street that why you can see many public bath around here. the toilette also dose not small and sound inside of house which is good. But ,Yes it is cold. Please tell me which guesthouse is better than us, I still have to study how i do make better. Thanks again.and sorry for your stay at Bon.

“ The staff was super-helpful, providing us with loads of information, giving us three maps (one of which was a bus map), advising us cheap places to eat nearby (we went and they were really delicious) and even taking us to the station with the car when we left early in the morning. The room was nice, a bit small, but had a fan, air conditioning and the futon was prepared for us by the staff. ”
Thank you very nuch for your comment, I hope to see you again.

- “ Guesthouse Bon was very cute and traditional Japanese style. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was nice and heated. The shower and toilet are kind of outdoors which can be very cold in Winter but a really cool place to stay in Kyoto. Close to some temples, nice restaurants and really nice little streets with shops. ”
