We stayed in a private (Japanese style) room with a private bathroom and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room! It was roomy with more than enough space for our luggage and ourselves for a very good price. Our bed was a futon with a super comfy doona. In a fantastic location, with Kyoto station only a 5...

very near to Kyoto station, just walk in less than 5m, there's a bus stop on main street. I stayed in Japanese style room with private bathroom.

For a short stay in Kyoto, this hostel offers an affordable rate for budget backpackers like myself at about 2,800 yen per night. We've arrived in the evening and got a chance to rent the bicycle and head on down to Gion for dinner. Facilities such as amenities and the kitchen supplies are sufficient & excellent.

I stayed here for 4 days. Location is great, 5 mins away from Kyoto station. You can easily find it using their map. It is also near a bus stop going to Kyomizudera temple (bus 206). Staff were friendly and were very helpful. Bed is ok with standard mattress. the only thing is that you don't get an extra plug...

Clean rooms, comfy beds (reading lamp and locker for each), enough and good bathrooms (good showers), common-area with beer-dispensor and kitchen.

Nice room with traditional japaneese tatamis and futons, with shower and toilet on the room. The staff speaks english, and were very considerate and let us in slightly earlier than check in-time, cause we were obviously exhausted. Would recommend!

Are you looking for a reasonable hotel? Kyoto Hana Hostel is one of the affordable accommodations. Aside from that, it's fairly accessible to JR Kyoto station. Actually, it only takes around five minutes on foot. Arac

Unique concept! There is *no* staff - everything is self service, and run on a system of trust. Clean, reasonably sized rooms and good location, for a good price. Depends on what kind of traveller you are to say if this works for you. It isn't a happening college student hostel, nor is it a cosy bnb.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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
