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...

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.

Really friendly and helpful staff with great English. We stayed in a twin room (traditional: thin mattress on the tatami floor which took a little getting used to) with ensuite. The common area in the hostel was quite small and when there was more than 2 in the kitchen area space was tight. The walls between rooms are paper thin...

We choose this hostel due to its close proximity to Kyoto Station. Getting to the hostel was hassle free. Just follow the map provided and tada, Kyoto Hana Hostel.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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
