As a single, retired, woman from the US that does not speak japanese, this facility was great. Clean rooms and bath and friendly, helpful staff. The location was close to the train/bus station which made sightseeing very easy. Staff was helpful on every aspect.. bus stops, sightseeing and good places to eat.

We stayed at the Tour Club in Kyoto for 6 nights. It is an easy walk from Kyoto station and very close to two very nice temples. We visited them the first day as we arrived from Narita before the check-in time. We dropped our backpacks off at the office and headed out for the rest of the afternoon. The...

My husband and I spent a week at Tour Club with our 5 month old baby. It is located on a quiet sidestreet, but is a short walk to the station which is important in Kyoto since the sights are scattered far and wide. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English, the shared kitchen and dining...

My friends and I had a great time staying at Tour Club. Besides the cozy atmosphere of the hotel, we were so impressed with the English-speaking staff's hospitality. If we have a chance to revisit Kyoto, we will stay at Tour Club again for sure.

I decided to write a review for this hostel right after spending 3 nights there, but got time to do this only after 4 months :p It has a good location. Although it took time to find it for the first time, it is actually very near to the JR station. Clean and cozy place, and I saw many people...

Great location and price, but most of all the staff are extremely helpful in navigating all there is to see and do in Kyoto. They helped me decide what temples to see, where to go at night, and even called a restaurant to deliver dinner one night when I was sick! Very nice and helpful people with great English.

Tour Club can't be beat for its obvious advantages of location and price. However, it is much more than that. It is a great combination of hostel and ryokan (Japanese style guest house), has incredibly dedicated and flexible staff, and creates a wonderful atmosphere for travelers from all over to gather. I have been a regular since 2007 and will...

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)
We are a hostel, please do not expect luxury. Our ensuite are small and without daily-maid because we focused on providing basic ensuite rooms for the price of youth hostel dormitories in Kyoto. We offer cheaper dormitory too. If you need more than the basics, we cannot meet your needs. However, we provide best value for money, such as zen garden, Japanese lounge, free kimono-try, wifi and information book. ... more   less
