The hostel is located about 7 minutes walk from Kyoto Station (Subway) i.e. it is a 5 minute ride from JR Kyoto Station. It is located very close to major department stores, Nishiki Market, Gion and the major bus stops (which can take you to all the sightseeing spots in Kyoto). The staff here are very friendly and helpful, they... More

The location of this guesthouse is so good, close to everything. Just 5 min walk and arrive to the intersection of Shijo and Kawaramachi where there are lots of shops, department store, Disney store, and even Nishiki market is just across. The guesthouse itself was average, but the staff were helpful and spoke good English.

The location of this Guesthouse is great, two blocks to Gion. I was surprised by the price. One can pay for four nights as little as one night in some other hotel. The facilities are clean, the staff is young and nice and we had a beautiful time in Kyoto. Even though I prefer fancier places to stay I surely... More

I was a little worried about staying in a hostel, but i thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Upon arrival, we were about 30 minutes early for check in and were not allowed to check in which was kind of annoying but understandable. The room was clean and in good condition fitted... More

Stayed here 3 weeks ago and found the location to be excellent. The staff is very friendly and the facilities were very clean. You can walk in each direction and find something very interesting, they also offer runs to the imperial palace tour. Will definitely come back next year!

There are many restaurants, supermarkets, convenient stores nearby. It's a short walk from the nearest bus stop and subway station too. We had a private twin room with bunk bed and it is very tiny, it's impossible to open both of our luggage at the same time. There's only one shower room in our floor (3rd) hence it was a... More

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.
