Incredible stay. It was like beeing at home. The family was so incredible nice and helpfull. From the first moment they made us feel like at our own house. They helped us with our stay, sightseeing and all we could need. Located in a very nice and calm part of kyoto ( like a small village) but surrounded by 4 bus lines and a subway in less than 200m, you were connected to all historical points of kyoto in less than 20 min. I would recomend it 100 % to families, couples and alone riders and for sure it will be our choice when we return to kyoto. After lots of travelling we had never such a perfect atmosphere!!
Thank you Kazuo Rina and Shin-ichi.
Incredible, lovely ....

I stayed at the guest house for 3 nights and loved it there. Transportation was fairly easy especially after the owner recommended getting one day bus tickets. There's also local food which was amazing and cheap! The guest house is perfect for 2-3 people and the owner is super nice and hardworking. He even gave me a ride to the station when leaving.

We loved our stay at Kazuo-san's place. It's a very nice laid-back neighbourhood next to a temple complex without any tourists. If you use the bikes (definitely cheaper than elsewhere!) it's great cruising around the riverbank to the city centre or to the philosopher's path. The bamboo garden and Kinkakuji are a nice ride as well.Lots of restaurants and local eateries around, as well as a nice bar, a supermarket and a bakery.

The owner and his wife are very helpful in all respects and will make your stay a wonderful one. We booked 3 nights - and stayed 7. I think that sums it up pretty well. Excellent!

...However, we didn't find these to be big issues. Especially since we were there in June (2015) so the semi-outdoors washrooms weren't a problem. We had no issues with the water. We did get to know the other guest pretty well too.

The location is indeed not as convenient as people here make it seem. 15 min walking to the subway, maybe 5 min to the bus stop. I'd recommend using the bus when moving around in Kyoto. You can buy a bus pass at the hostel or from the bus driver.

The owner was super nice, recommending restaurants and giving us a lift to the subway station on the day we checked out. We had no issues with our rooms or anything else during our stay.

Yes it is not close to the centre of kyoto and yes the neighbourhood is a bit dead after 9pm. But you can pinpoint that on a map before booking and its an easy transport by subway and bus. I guess it depenss what your looking for. I absolutely loved staying at Bon, the owner and his wife are adorable people thay help you out in any way possible. The neighbourhood was very nice, and i loved the calm part after coming from tokyo or osaka... Ate some amazing soba and sushi just around the corner and it is located next to the nicest zen tempel of kyoto imo. Indeed if you want to meet other tourists that want to go party i reckon there are more 'younger' guesthouses in the centre. I would def go back to kyoto and to guesthouse Bon.
