We stayed at the hostel for 5 days. The hostel is close to the bus stop. It's convenient to go around by bus. Though the room is small, the clerks at the counter are friendly and helpful. They also serve free coffee and bread which is great for travellers.

It's not Ok when you arrive on time and wait 30 minutes for check in because nobody is there. It's not ok if I pay 11.340 JPY for one night and the bedroom is a nightmare. I didn't expect too much for one night, It was only for sleep and I thought it was ok but it wasn't! I didn't...

Bus stop in front. The bad things: the room is not comfortable and ugly in general, cold in autumn, no heat. The mattress is very thin and hard....

Room at back very quiet. Split aircon worked a treat during freezing temperatures. 15 mins walk from station in one direction and Gion in the other. All basics covered - plenty of toiletries, piping hot water, hair drier and gown. I travelled alone this time, but think my husband would have struggled with the cute, but 'compact' bathroom space. Cozy...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood 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.
