Nice room with traditional japaneese tatamis and futons, with shower and toilet on the room. The staff speaks english, and were very considerate and let us in slightly earlier than check in-time, cause we were obviously exhausted. Would recommend!

Are you looking for a reasonable hotel? Kyoto Hana Hostel is one of the affordable accommodations. Aside from that, it's fairly accessible to JR Kyoto station. Actually, it only takes around five minutes on foot. Arac

Unique concept! There is *no* staff - everything is self service, and run on a system of trust. Clean, reasonably sized rooms and good location, for a good price. Depends on what kind of traveller you are to say if this works for you. It isn't a happening college student hostel, nor is it a cosy bnb.

The hostel is an easy walk from Kyoto Station, and near a lot of restaurants & bars - there's a convenience store for cheap groceries nearby, and a standing bar across the road. We stayed in a private twin room (with tatami floor & futon); the room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and included a TV, air con, hairdryer, lamp and... More

Location is nearby to Kyoto station, take around 10++ minutes to reach and its easy to take a train or bus from there. Staff are friendly and helpful. Kitchen are clean and tidy. My family and I feel comfortable to stay in this hostel. It's really budget hostels and recommend to those backpacker like us.

It is very close to Kyoto station and easy to find.The reception staff wasn't very welcoming. Wasn't very helpful when answering my questions. I think you could easily find another better place to stay in Kyoto. Just book earlier.

I seem can't find any faults about this hostel other than the location was a bit far from Osaka train station. But other than that, everything was fantastic. Such a warm charming-hostel and the staffs were so friendly. Highly recommended for those who seek for a budget hostel at Osaka.

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.

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
