Bright and clean, excellent location, friendly staff. The bunk beds are spacious and each had its own shelf/locker and curtain. There is no common room/lounge area but it wasn't a problem for me.

I'm very happy to choose Kyoto Hana Hostel as a place to stay in Kyoto, I like a common room and the kitchen very much. The staffs are very helpful and my bed is comfy. It's only take 5 minutes walk to Kyoto station, and near to minimarket. if I get another chance to visit kyoto, hana hostel is my main priority.

Great stay: staff was extremely friendly and helpful, facilities were clean and modern but tatami bedding had a nice "authentic" look, location was very convenient and in a nice area. Would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I really liked staying at the Kyoto Hana Hostel - the front desk was very helpful in answering all our questions and providing some suggestions. We enjoyed the 'traditional' feel of the room we had, complete with futons and great bedding, 10/10! A suggestion might be that the slippers were a bit slippery on the stairs, especially for smaller feet.

Very friendly staff, storing my luggage was very helpful and their reward system is cool with a small gift (free bike rental, munchies, etc) on every 3rd night. The beds are spacious and I love that the lockers are next to the bed and there are curtains for a lot of privacy. The only thing is that it wasnt so easy to meet people. The lounge is just not 'working', and they had a lot of older female Chinese travellers staying, and while very friendly, they're not rly the ppl to hang out with.

Thank you very much for staying with us this time:) It seems that close to the city center is more convenient, but close to the Kyoto station is more convenient to do the sightseeing! We hope to see you again in the near future!

For me, it is the perfect location - just a few minutes walk from Kyoto station, from where you can get busses anywhere. And trains, of course. It was down a side-street, so nice and quiet too. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. I stayed in a private room, which had everything I needed and more. Would definitely stay here again.

Kyoto’s Hana Hostel is a nice and very cozy hostel. Everything was perfectly clean and the dorms (at least the one I stayed in) had a reasonable size. I'd definitely stay there again.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location is great (5 min walk from station and all bus lines!!). Quite literally the cleanest building I have ever been in, in my life! Pricing is very fair for all the facilities and their quality. Would whole-heartedly recommend this hostel to everyone who goes to Kyoto.
