Walking distance to Kyoto Station and bus station. Small and clean room but equipped with basic needs. Love the ensuite room! For foreigners who has not sleep on tatami before might needs to put some extra efforts on setting up the blankets and pillows. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Nearby hostel there is a few cafe/restaurant but highly recommend to... More

We were an over 60 couple who booked a double room with en suite bath. We were a bit nervous about possible noise from a younger crowd, but that concern turned out to be needless. The room itself was rather small, but smelled so sweet from the tatami mats. Sleeping so low to the floor was a bit awkward, but... More

Be warned - the scale on the map is not the same as that for the other Hana Hostels. As you exit the Kyoto Train station, head towards the Kyoto Tower. Walk toward the castle, you will pass a Starbucks, Baskin Robins and a large department store on your left. At the very next intersection, turn right (there is a... More

Hana Hostel is a good option for budget travellers. It is handily located close to the wonderful Kyoto Rail station. Rooms are small but not cramped. Kitchen facilities are very convenient - you can make toast and boil eggs for breakfast, if you are into that sort of tucker. The staff are relentlessly friendly and helpful.

The hostel is situated less than 5 mins walk from main Kyoto station (where you can catch bus, and all the trains). There is a bus stop outside the hostel which #26 bus basically took us to many of the main attractions in Kyoto. We travelled as a couple and stayed in an ensuite room - it was small but... More

Just a 5-minute walk from JR Kyoto Train Station, Hana Hostel offers basic accommodation with free Wi-Fi. We were staying in dormitory. Room was very simple, kitchen clean. Staff very friendly. Perfect spot for backpackers

Had a fantastic stay, can't fault the location, facilities or staff, all great. We stayed in a private ensuite room - traditionally tiny yet comfortable and immaculately clean. A perfect base for checking out Kyoto, wish we had stayed longer, especially as after 3 nights stay you get a free day bike rental and a few other goodies - this... More

I stayed there for 4 nights there. The staff are helpful with good English dpeaking skill. The location is central. About 5 mins walk from Kyoto station and bus terminal. In front of the alleyway to hotel there is a bus stop where you can catch bus no.26 to kiyomizu dera temple and gion or no.28. There is a convenience... More

This hostel is very close to Kyoto Station, ATMs, and makes getting around Kyoto easy. I highly suggest renting a bicycle from the hostel if you are good with maps. It will save a lot of money and stress. This was a quiet hostel and it was in a fairly quiet area. Not much nightlife in this area. The rooms... More

I was so pleased when Hana hostel Kyoto was opened as I had previously stayed at the sister hostel in Hiroshima and had a great time. Since my first visit I have stayed here another two times and each time the staff have been so wonderful to us. I have always stayed in the rooms with private ensuite so can... More
