What travellers think

Travellers that stayed here think this hostel is best for

  • Sightseeing
  • Relaxing
  • Nature-lovers
  • Culture


Location is great, City bus stop for line 26,59,10 is only 50 meters away; buses run to the major attractions: Kinkakuji Temple/Golden Pavilion, Ninnaji Temple, Ryoanji and to Arashiyama area by another connection of bus 11. Hostel also offers programs for the guests on Sunday night. Lobby area is great place to social and meet many international travelers of all ages. It was awarded as no. 2 in all hostels in the world. The only inconvenience I had was to take the shower in another bldg.

L'obligation d'évacuer les chambres à partir de 10h jusqu'à 15h est un peu embêtante. Sinon rien à dire pour le reste! Parfaite auberge!

+ Sehr schönes Zimmer (Doppelzimmer) mit bequemen Betten., Badezimmer klein aber ausreichend für mein Empfinden und sauber, freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal, am Empfang sprechen alle Englisch, Große Auswahl am Frühstücksbuffet. - Durch die riesen Fensterfronten etwas kalt in den Gängen und Energieeffizient auch nicht
