Location is nearby to Kyoto station, take around 10++ minutes to reach and its easy to take a train or bus from there. Staff are friendly and helpful. Kitchen are clean and tidy. My family and I feel comfortable to stay in this hostel. It's really budget hostels and recommend to those backpacker like us.

It is very close to Kyoto station and easy to find.The reception staff wasn't very welcoming. Wasn't very helpful when answering my questions. I think you could easily find another better place to stay in Kyoto. Just book earlier.

Really friendly and helpful staff with great English. We stayed in a twin room (traditional: thin mattress on the tatami floor which took a little getting used to) with ensuite. The common area in the hostel was quite small and when there was more than 2 in the kitchen area space was tight. The walls between rooms are paper thin...

We choose this hostel due to its close proximity to Kyoto Station. Getting to the hostel was hassle free. Just follow the map provided and tada, Kyoto Hana Hostel. Upon checking in, we were given 300 yen discount for a 3 night stay. The private tatami room that we were put into is no different from a Ryokan. It has...

I've stayed here twice, once in 2011 and once in 2015. Both times have been lovely! The staff are always super friendly. They have bike rentals which is great as cycling is a perfect way to explore Kyoto. The location is amazing, you pretty much walk out, turn the corner and there's restaurants, convenience stores, bakeries, THE BEST Yodobashi in...

This hostel is a great value - room was clean, cozy and warm. Tatami mat was extremely comfortable! Staffs were friendly and helpful. Good location to the Kyoto main station (about 8 min walk), convenient store and restaurants nearby. Free Wifi available but not stable in the room. If only they also provided a lift in the hostel, it would...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Hana Hostel. “Hana” means “Flower” in Japanese. We try to be a fresh and cheery hostel like a lotus flower floating in the pond. Kyoto Hana Hostel opened in April, 2010.The building used to be a local “Ryokan”. We remodeled this into an advanced international hostel. As we are very close from the station and the guest rooms are well-equipped, we will be an good option to stay for not only backpackers but also for ordinary tourists with suits cases. ... more   less
