I agree there is room for improvement. I stayed for 3 -4 nights and, although the male owner was quite friendly, I didn't feel comfortable staying there. The kitchen/ lounge downstairs was messy and the garbage isn't taken out regularly. I hope I was allowed to be in that space but sometimes it felt like the owners and their friends...

My partner and I stayed in a Private room here for 4 nights. There is only an outside staircase to get access, so be prepared to carry suitcases. The room included a bunk bed and loft space with an additional futon. We also had a private shower and hand basin. There was a shared toilet next door. The bunk bed...

Everybody is nice people here, they are so helpful as well, it's all clean and nice I recommend to come here. As a tip, there is a bar just crossing the street , and is a very good place. Is not too far from the Kyoto station, if you are there, take the 206 bus. And in the Kyoto university...

My stay at the earthship was a mixed experience. The staff at the hostel was very friendly and helped me in every way possible, and they are also great company. The living standards overall were however a bit spartan even for my taste (and for the price). All in all I would definitely recommend this place if you are just...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private room and it was really top notch for a hostel. Lovely hosts, clean decent sized room. We got a bit of wifi in the room but lots of space to sit downstairs and use. We chose it as a base for walking to Demachiyanagi Station (10 mins) for days out on...

This place is clean and comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood and street, with little traffic which will improve the quality of your sleep significantly. It has all it needs nearby, convenience stores, and transportation, and the river, everything really. I stayed in the female dorm, which is for 8 ladies, and has a private bathroom. Everything was spotless and the...

This was a last minute booking with most other hostels in the area being full. The hostel itself is fairly minimal providing a bed for the night at a good rate. It is a little out of the main nightlife in Sanjo and Gion, however, is perfectly placed for most sights with a bus stop that links all the major...

First I'll start with the negative. It can be a little tricky to find and the Wi-Fi is pretty much non existent unless you're hanging out in the lobby/living area. Now that we got that out of the way, on to the good! The staff here are the most friendly people I've basically ever met. Even the ones who don't...

I stayed at the Earhship Kyoto Guesthouse from December 29, 2013 - January 4, 2014. It was definitely the best place I stayed at over my trip to Japan. The owner is very friendly and made numerous recommendations as what we should do on a day. We were invited to join in on their New Years Activities and were often...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
