I had a great time in Compass guesthouse and it was a highlight of my Japan trip. The owners papa, mama, and coco were super friendly and made everyone feel like at home. They gave us lots of tips on places to go and good restaurants to try. I met some nice new friends here as well. I highly recommend their place to anyone who looks for some authentic Kyoto experience.
The hosts were very kind and warm people. They introduced me to other guests and spent time together with us in shared space. In the morning mama cooked amazing breakfast for everybody and helped with finding transportation for sightseeing places. I felt like having a family there. Besides that, rooms were sparkling clean, cosy and comfortable to stay at.
Everything exceeded my expectations.
I had my best travel experience ever here. The owners put their heart and soul in this lovely place, they are making their best effort to make guest feel like home. I learned a lot about Kyoto, about their life experience, and much more from them, and had a lot of fun with other travelers all over the world. Will definitely return the next time when I visit Kyoto.
Mama and Papa are the shining stars of this cozy guest house. You don't fell being treated as guests but family members. We had nice chat during the evenings and over breakfast time. If you come to Kyoto to experience the taste of local culture, this is definitely the best place to stay. We made a right decision not to stay in a hotel. A lot of those guests we met during our stay were repeat ones and we would definitely come back if we visit Kyoto the next time. Everything here is cozy and convenient. Breakfast is also great. And we had some nice photos.
Now my favorite place to stay in Kyoto. Rather convenient : 15 min to Arashiyama (Bamboo grove), 30 min to Kiyomizu-dera by direct bus (n°80), at less than 5 min by train of Kyoto main station. But also lot of convenient stores and supermarket very close, many good restaurants, 2 sento (public baths) and one onsen. The free breakfast is very good : egg, toast, fruits, bacon, fruit juice, coffee or tea. Nice building and confy dormitories. Very clean. Lot of nice attention : free drinks, possibility to buy one day pass for bus. But the main asset of Kyoto Compass is its owner : Mama and Papa will make your stay unforgetable. The atmosphere here is so warm and welcoming. A must-stay, particularly for solo travelers !
Nothing ! Everything was perfect.
