When we first arrived at the hostel and where going to check in the girl in the reception acted cold, and didn't seem to care. It did not give of a good atmosphere. But the facilities were spacious and clean, which were greatly appreciated.

I really liked the location! Right near Kyoto station and bus routes. Liked that every 3 nights you stay you get to pick a cool thing (small discount, name in japanese, or bike rental). I picked bike rental and riding around Kyoto was a super cool experience. Liked the map they provide. Liked that you get a shelf to lock up your stuff. Was a bit iffy that they don't really lock the luggage storage all the time, but there's someone at reception when it's open, and it turned out fine.

I love Hana Hostel. The Kyoto location is the best by far. Really convenient location. Beds are a bit hard, but great otherwise!

Everything was great with our stay - cleanliness, location and helpful staff. The only thing lacking was some atmosphere but that may simply have been that there weren't many other travellers around the common areas when we were there

Lovely hostel hidden in a quiet alley when it's only 10 mins walking distance to Kyoto station and major bus stops only mins away. There are restaurants and shops close by. The room was better than I expected, traditional tatami style, bathroom and toilet were separated and there's a door separates them from the main room - I think that's a very thoughtful design and certainly wouldn't have expected it in a hostel. We enjoyed our stay and the staff were nice!

Hana is very centrally located, 5min walk to Central Kyoto station where a lot of buses depart from and take you to all the sights around Kyoto. There is 2 malls nearby, as well as McDonalds and Starbucks,if that's your thing. The staff is very friendly and they have informatoon hanging everywhere about activities, weather, tips from other guests in a nice notebook. The common area is big, with couch, guitar,ukulele, games,tv and allows you to be social, which we didnt find often in Japan.

Hana hostels are always excellent value. The Kyoto Hana hostel is great. Lots of space in room and bed area and everything very very clean. The staff are genuine, helpful and kind. Very busy but for good reason I guess! Would definitely recommend to people and will return.

The staff speaks English but wasn't very helpful with information about the local festivals. They also used the kitchen in the morning, blocking the facilities for the guests.

Location was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room triple with tatami matting was a little musty smelling.
