This hostel is great in architecture and equipment. We had a twin bed room and a bulk beds room for 4 and both were very clean and confortable. The buffet breakfast is good but always the same every day. The common bath area is clean...More
I love this hotel so much. But, the location is too far from Kyoto Station. There's no free towel and toiletry, you should provide by yourself. The staff provide Kyoto City Bus One Day Pass if you want sightseeing Kyoto with bus ❤
Although it is a long bus ride (~45mins to 1 hr depending on traffic) from Kyoto Station, I really appreciated the peacefulness of staying here for my four days in Kyoto. It was a good base, and I took many different buses to explore the...More
This hostel was clean yes, had good facilities, and staff spoke good English.

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
