I'm still in hostel Haruya while I'm writing this. I like because it's comfortable and clean. Although it's small but the staff are really friendly and they even let me use their shower room before my night bus to Hiroshima at Kyoto station. They have bicycle rental at reasonable cost. The hostel is located few minutes walk to kyoto station.

I stayed here two nights and enjoyed my stay quite a bit. My only complaint was the spotty wifi, which made it hard to plan our trip. I stayed in both the Western and Japanese style private suites. The Japanese style was a bit cramped from a Western perspective but had a private bathroom. The western style was awesome. The... More

Had a great stay in this hostel. I love the traditional feel of the building and that it was tucked away in a quiet back street. It's a short bus ride from Kyoto station (just 3 bus-stops away) and directions to the hostel was very clear. Found my way there with no problems even though it was dark. Shower &... More

This hostel was absolutely fantastic. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and although the bathroom is shared we were lucky enough to have our own separate toilet. It is in a great location. I would definitely love to come back and stay here again. The guy who runs it is so lovely. He absolutely MADE our stay in Kyoto.... More

Yado Haruya Aqua has a convenient location very close to Nanajo Omiya bus stop and two convenience stores. It's a great place if you want to stay a bit longer and have a 'Kyoto Experience.' The building is over 100 years old so it feels very Japanese and authentic. The dorm room is very small but the beds are comfortable... More

We have only good things to say about our time spent here-we travelled from Narita airport straight to Kyoto-having travelled 28 hours, so were exhausted when we arrived. We received such a warm welcome from Kobayashi-San. We stayed in three different rooms on the three nights we stayed-it was peak cherry blossom season meaning good, affordable accommodation was difficult to... More
