I spent 25 days at Guest House Kyoto Inn, and I had a great experience!
It's close to a Train station and multiple bus stops, so it's easy to get around and explore Kyoto.
The staff were very helpful and kind. Of course, a huge special thanks to Essam and Naoko-san for being an amazing host and great manager.
The hostel is also very clean and cozy and because there is a shared kitchen and dining area it’s easy to meet people if you’re solo-traveling!
I had one minor issue with the roster but that was fixed immediately once I notified Essam about it.
Thank you so much for everything🫶!

I was always happy most of days spending time at the guest house. I felt welcomed and home. Though, I was little uncomfortable about the schedule in the beginning as I had to work 6 days consequentially. Since I will be staying little bit longer, I was able to work in the evening. It kinda helped me to get more free time. Basically he will give us 8 days off if you work for a month. But it will be randomly given. If you want to change your schedule, you need to swap with others which can be inconvenient. Though, the work was easy. I feel like communication is more necessary.

I had a very great experience at this guesthouse! The work exchange is fair and you have lots of time in the afternoon. During my stay I met many new people and found amazing friends. I felt welcome and at home from the first day on and everyone was always kind to me. I am very grateful for everything and definitely recommend this place!

It was nice staying at the Guest House. The work is easy and the staff is very kind. I made some good friends along the way :). Kyoto itself was also very interesting. There is a lot to do. When you work only three hours a day there is a lot of free time to go sightseeing but you have to consider that everything closes at 5pm.
Thank you for letting me stay with you!

I had a good stay at Essam's guesthouse. The work was simple and you have plenty of time after to explore the city. Some planning was needed since many places close a bit earlier in Kyoto but definitely doable. I met some great volunteers and also other travelers. Thank you for the stay!
