The only reason for my less than stellar review comes down to value for the money. Our first night was 2,300 yen - a reasonable amount for a female only dorm - but our second night which was a Wednesday, not even a weekend, drove the price up to 3,500 yen, which is definitely on the expensive side for a...

Stayed with 5 friends so we had a room for ourselves with three bunk beds in the 4th floor. The beds were comfortable and we all love the privacy drapes. The heater worked great and we had the shared bathroom next to us. It is very centrally located and close to numerous shops and restaurants. Only thing I didn't like...

The location is great and easy to access, and it is super near Nishiki Market. The rooms are great too! I have a pleasant stay in the Guesthouse! The toilets and the rooms are clean. The living room and kitchen is well equipped. Had a really good time at the place.

We stayed here for four nights over six days as we left for a ryokan retreat on the third and fourth nights. Left my charger behind and staff Nanami very kindly kept it for me at the reception until our return! Staff Miyaki was also very helpful in assisting us with making restaurant reservations. Kudos to all the friendly and...

First time at a hostel, didn't know what to expect. Staff speaks English, and is very willing to accommodate. You can get a Kyoto bus pass from the front desk for 500 yen. Literally in the middle of Kyoto, near just about all major sight seeing spots. Sister location has a bar and theater down the street, and there are...

I got a twin private room with shared bathroom during my trip to Kyoto. The room is pretty small with bunk beds but it is clean and comfortable. Although it is a shared bathroom, it is clean and well equipped. The location is awesome since it is only 10 minutes walk to the main shopping and eating place. There were...

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.
