    This is an awesome, traditional Japanese style hostel VERY close to Kyoto Station. The location couldn't be better. Tanaka, who runs the place, is extremely helpful and kind. He also has AWESOME food recommendations. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Tanaka for everything!

    My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Tanaka Gokurakudo!! The location couldn’t have been better while the home itself was gorgeous. The placed smelled of cedar and wood, it was clean, and the owner was always around and helpful. The kitchen table was nice to sit and have tea in the morning and evening. I would definitely recommend.

    The guesthouse is located close to Kyoto station and The Kyoto tower. The host is really nice and helpful, he is also open for a chat with his guests. The guesthouse is very clean and nicely done up in a modern japanese style. I liked this guesthouse very much and would really recommend it for a stay in Kyoto!

    Hostel super clean and in a great location to Kyoto station to make day trips easily. We were looking for somewhere quiet to stay which meant this hostel was perfect, as you don’t really interact with other travellers

    The space was so clean and well-maintained. It had everything you could need to make you feel at home. I loved the layout of the space and how the interior was so interesting. I love the art on the wall and the sink area being outside. So nice. The room I stayed in was immaculately clean. I slept very well. Honestly, this location is perfect. It’s across from Kyoto station and close to convenience stores, restaurants and shops. Thank you for a great stay!

    Decent place right under Kyoto Tower and next to the train station. Kind of small, but adds to the charm
