Our stay at Chita was all we could ask for. Chita gave us a ryokan atmosphere for hostel price, and the manager was wery sweet and helpful. He really went the extra mile to make our stay perfect! We would chose Chita again for our next Kyoto trip!


If you would like to get traditional experience, sleeping on real tatami mats this is the place. The facilities- average(located downstairs), big kitchen and dinning area to use, also table and chairs on the roof- really cool. You can easily do your laundry, rent a bike- just round the corner. Staff is friendly and helpful, but not in your way.


I really enjoyed my stay here. It's not far from Kyoto station and the staff was really helpful and friendly. It's a bit of a walk (25 minutes) to the bustling nighttime area, but it's a beautiful walk and that shouldn't stop you from staying here. Solid 4.5/5


Nice and clean environment... Around 15 mins walk to Kyoto Train Station.Covenient shop and restaurant around the corner.The only downside is that the toilet is at level one and you can hear your neighbour talk throughout the night.

Very nice place and staff!


The host was extremely generous! She welcomed any questions we had in terms of getting around and always asked if there was anything we needed. Definitely a great location if you're looking to stay in Kyoto.

A really nice place to stay! Very traditional with good facilities! The staff were very friendly and helpful.. A good location from the train station and all attractions :)


Nice Japanese-style rooms, all necessary facilities. Friendly staff and a nice common room.


Amazing location, really nice staff, bargain price.


I had a wonderful stay! The inn is a close 10 minute walk from the Kyoto station, making it very convenient to get on the city bus system or grab dinner at the many restaurants near the train. The staff were wonderful and even gave me a gift for my birthday. Accomodations were fantastic, even offered multiple cushions for me to make the bedding more comfortable, but wasn't at all needed. It is cool at night because there is not central heating, but the blankets were more than enough I'll be back


Great rooms and warm futons, and the staff is excellent! Great location, too - very close to Kyoto and Gojo stations. But remember that it's traditional Japanese style - meaning thin sliding screen walls and super cold in winter. If you're into that type, though, it's awesome! Would totally stay there again.
