City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Went last March 2017, it was a last minute decision to go stay,visit Kyoto. One of the best and lovely host that I met in Japan. I couldn't remember all but Yuya and all the ladies are very warm and welcoming. Its a small and cozy guest house with cute designs. Stayed at the 2nd floor mixed bedroom. My only concern is the limited bathroom, a recommendation to add would be terrific. Short distance on the bus stop and has a lot of stores nearby. Has free breakfast (bread, jams) and coffee, tea. Since its a small hostel you get to meet almost everyone staying, hangout in the kitchen, got acquainted. Free wifi and rental of wifi pockets. Overall, a very pleased traveler. Thank you Guest House Sendo :)

Didn't realise that the splendour of Japan's Autumn foliage can result in affordable accommodation in Kyoto being 'sold out'. In booking late I found Guest House Sendo that had their 'VIP room' available for the dates I wanted. On reflection it was a good choice considering I normally book 3/4 star accommodation. The VIP room was a double room with free standing bath and shower. Some limited space for luggage and hanging clothes. Very soft mattress. Had to share bathroom and kitchen. The latter provided a great place to touch base with other travellers who were back-backing around Japan or Asia. The guest house is not the most central but has great bus and train links that allow you to get some key attractions. Yura and his team were very helpful with advice and I liked some of the quirky, shabby chic décor. Overall the pleasant stay.

I was there last October for three days visiting Kyoto with my girlfriend. The place is not the fanciest one but you feel really great there because is so cozy and the man in charge there Yuya is a great guy very helpful and communicative. I really recommend it since very convenient and cheap as well!! I hope to see u again Yuya! Take care

From the practical point: Less than 5 minute walking to bus stops, subway, convenience store, restaurants, bar, onsens and mall. You can find all you need around and getting to the center is absolutely easy and quick. Not to mention that bike rental and daily bus and metro pass is available at the reception! Room as in any hostel with enough space to sleep, not crowded at all (2 bunk beds), aircon and not exposed at the first sunlight (good for who love to wake up a tad late). All clean and tidy, shower and bath with soap and shampoo available. Couple more toilets in case one or the other is busy, laundry and balcony where to hang your clothes, fully furnished kitchen and toast and tea or coffe for breakfast! Personal point: From the first moment i stepped in Guest House Sendo i felt at ease and at home. The narrow corridors in a rococo style and the small kitchen gave me a warming welcome with a super friendly management! Easy briefing on arrival and i started right away to meet everyone who was staying there. From the next day we started to have dinner all together everyday ending up to be more than people just passing by and barely saying hello (thing that i hate in big hostels), and thanks to all those people i had a great time and i also prolonged my stay of two more days. Yuya (who welcomed me the first day) was so friendly and ready to help that gave me information of any sort and managed to organize a night out clubbing, pizza party (twice), pasta party, going to eat tipical ramen, cooking homemade takoyaki all through the few days of my stay. A place i will never forget for i had such a nice time that i felt like between old friends! Thank you Guest House Sendo

Guest house is very close to the Sainn Station of Hankyu line or to the platform of Keifuku Randen tram. We arrived late in the evening, so we didn't see any staff. All informatio regarding our stay was on the notes attached to the wall. Notes were really cute) The first note was on the enterance door and it said that our key was in a postbox. There we more notes and information when we entered. If you have paid online, you may just sleep in the guest house and leave even without saying goodbye. If you choose to pay after, you have two options. First you pay to the staff and also give them your pasport for registration and so on. Or there is a second option that was our case because we left early in the morning, you put money in kind of envelope and put it in the box on the staff table, and we didn't our pasport data. The room we booked had a "bath", a decorative bath it turned out to be. If you want to shower a flood wii begin as water runs directly on the floor )
