We booked Hana Kyoto Hostel in order to experience the Japanese way of sleeping using Futon. The location was good.It was about 10 min walk from Kyoto airport bus station and there was a Lawson store at the traffic light and many restaurants nearby. Once you crossed the traffic light, turn right and right at the lane and you would...

The best part about Kyoto Hana Hostel for me was its convenient location. It's proximity to the Kyoto JR station made it a great base for day trips out of the city. But the overall experience at this hostel was not as pleasant as I had hoped. This hostel does not have a lift so heavy packers please take note,...

Kyoto Hana Hostel was a fantastic stay for us. We stayed for 5 nights and we appreciated the clean and tidy traditional style Japanese rooms. We slept really well! The staff were very helpful and answered all our questions, there's laundry and internet/printing services, and you can hire a bike for the whole day for 500¥! The bike is really...

I stayed for 5 days during my recent visit to Kyoto. The location is about 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Station. Easy to find if you have a map. The entire hotel is very clean and tidy. I stayed in a twin-ensuite room. Although it was small, but enough for 2 adults and 2 children of us. There is a...

Only few minutes from Kyoto station, this hostel gave a very strong impression to me right when I stepped into its doors. I was required to take off my shoes, wear Japanese slippers (which was soft, light and so comfortable). Even the kitchen was small but well equipped with all essential kitchenette tools. The staffs were ones of the best...

I'm very happy with the twin ensuite room that we got. Because the futon could be folded when we are not sleeping, we felt the room is spacious enough for us to use. Moreover, the bathroom and toilet is separated! what could you expect more with this budget. Wifi is available in the room which we really appreciate that. The...

Hana hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever been in (and I have been all over Europe). My wife and I got a double en-suite room, and enjoyed it more than some cheap hotels we've been in Japan.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood 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
