Great location, great price, and lovely lovely tatami room ;)
Super clean & Awesome staffs!!! And sooo peaceful. Great for couples and family.
Stayed for 7days and I'd been recommending to EVERYONE who is going to Kyoto, MUSTstay at Hana Hostel.
Pay for hostel rate but stay like a 5star hotel ;)
Location: Super near Kyoto Station and some great eating place nearby. Ask the staff for recommendation! Thy will direct you to the best Ramen & Okonomiyaki around the corner ;) yumyumyum. Thanks Shizuka, Erika, Mio & Mana for the great hospitality and great advice on where to go and to eat (like a local). I am missing you guys very much and Japan~
Note: remember to ask them for the map of places to eat, ;)
They also have a great stamping system where you can collect stamps to either redeem vouchers or discount. It's for lifetime! no time limits! and best of all, you can use it at all Hana Hostel's branch and J-hoppers too. Save us alot in renting bicycles hehe
Oh, do not miss:
1.Fushimi Inari Shrine-mother of all tori gates!! the ultimate tori gate experience
2. Kyoto Station-Level 10, Ramen Street- for the ultimate Ramen experience! you can try all possible type of Ramen available in whole Japan here. abit pricey compared to shops but no where else you can find all of Japan's Ramen variety under 1 roof.
3. Rent a bicycle!
4. Kiyomizu-dera and nearby streets-very cultural and great spots for photographs
The list will go on foreva, better stop now.
Writing this review makes me feel like booking a flight to Japan now.
- 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
