Stayed here with the family in the 4 bunk-bed room.
STAFF. The owners were great - warm, gracious, very friendly. The entire staff was nice and spoke great English. The owners are very passionate about Kyoto and love to give advice and suggestions about sightseeing.
PRICE. Kyoto can be a pricey place to stay. Guesthouse Yahata is reasonably priced.
CRAMPED. The house is tiny. It sounds like a joke to warn, "Look out for the microwave when you go to the bathroom!" It's not a joke. If you literally open the bathroom door too hard, you're going to smack the microwave. The stairs are steep. If one person laughs too loud, the entire house hears it. And if anyone heads outside to smoke a cigarette, the smoke wafts right back inside, up the stairs, and throughout the tiny house.
THE ROOM. The furniture felt cheap and the room hadn't been cleaned thoroughly.
THE INTERNET. Two shared pcs with high-speed internet downstairs. If you have a laptop, they have an ethernet cable downstairs that you can use to connect to the high speed network. No wireless.
THE LOCATION. A bit of a walk to the subway station. Plenty of convenience stores close by. Very close to the bus stop.
While the owners were absolutely wonderful, the guesthouse itself wasn't a highlight of our stay in Kyoto.
