Located within walking distance to bus stop and subway station. Easy to access to major tourist spots with bus. About 400m to Nishiki market and teramachi, surrounded with eatery, the hostel did recommend some restaurant nearby and provide directory to all hot spots.
We stayed here for 2 nights, the private room was quite small with minimal in it other than a bed.
But the lounge area was very nice and comfortable.
The hostel has great recommendations for things to do, where to eat and how to get...More
The walls were thin, so you can almost hear what the next door was saying. However, the location was superb, in downtown Kyoto. The Gion Festival procession was very near to the hostel. The hostel was clean and the staff helpful.
We are a group of 6 people, stayed in 2 beds private rooms and 4 beds private room.

We ended up here for 1 night after 3 nights elsewhere. The comparison for khaosan was not favourable although the price was the same. Our double room was tiny, even for Japan, looked tired and was just a little depressing. This was our fourth shared...More
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.
