My husband and I stayed here in July 2011 as we traveled around Japan. We stayed here for five nights as Kyoto is a really convenient base to sight see in lots of different places nearby, and it was so comfortable it felt like home. We thought the price was exceptionally good for everything we got. This is a relatively new hostel so the decor and facilities were really modern and clean. The rooms are comfortable (though not generous) in size and had everything we need. The facilities were quite extensive, anything that we could think of that we might want (washing machine, bikes, vending machines, kitchen facilities, great wifi... you name it) was available, and because we stayed for so long we got to rent bikes for free one day which was a nice bonus. The thing which really impressed us though was the service. The staff, all of whom spoke English very well, and were very willing to suggest places to see and restaurants to go to - we found a great raamen shop on one staff member's recommendation which was the type of place only a local would know about. This place had everything I want in a hostel and for a very reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.

- 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
