Profile: Central Kyoto

Profile: Central Kyoto

Central Kyoto is just a short stroll away from the city's innumerable shrines and historic temples. For a more modern view of Japanese culture, head to the Kyoto International Manga Museum, where you’ll find over 300,000 comic books and a host of kid-friendly activities.

Central Kyoto’s covered malls, including the bustling Teramachi arcade, make it a great place to while away a rainy afternoon; alternatively, chill out over a bowl of steaming ramen noodles in a tiny, wood-paneled restaurant or grab a beer in a traditional izakaya (Japanese bar).

    Very clean little hostel with basic breakfast

    Incredibly clean little hostel - rooms were basic, but spacious, toilets and bathrooms were always spotless and staff were lovely. Locationwise it wasn't necessarily right on the doorstep of anything, but if you're OK with walking and exploring on foot, Kyoto's on a block system, so relatively easy to navigate compared to other cities we'd been to and so the markets, Geisha district, the river, etc. were OK to reach with longer walks and there's also a bike rental shop a street away to help getting around too. Another major perk here was having the communal area as an alternative to sitting in rooms when doing research / grabbing a snack and liked that we could grab toast and coffee before heading out for the day.

    Excellent Stay in the heart of Kyoto

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with R Star Hostel, we stayed in the suite of the hostel, this is very big area with 2 double beds (bed is little bit soft) and 1 or 2 futon beds on the floor if required. It is clean and well equiped with an ensuite bath room (shower over bath), separte toilet, kitchen with toaster and big table in the dinning area. Out of all the hostel / hotels we stayed in Japan, this hostel offers the best free breakfast with 6 different varieties of bread with healthy selections of wholemeal and seeds loaf, 3 different types of gourmet jams which are so yummy, it has a nice open kitchen with plenty area to spread for your meal time cooking etc. The hostel location is nice and quiet which is only 3 minutes walk from Gojo station ( 1 station north of Kyoto Station ), there is a direct bus to Gion area with 6 stops only. will definitely stay here again if visit Kyoto again in the future.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great stay

    Location was good for us, it’s a 20minute walk from Kyoto station. The hostel itself was spotless and the private room (bunk beds and shared bathroom) was a decent size and much bigger than expected, comfy beds and again perfectly clean. Breakfast on offer is a selection of breads, jam, tea and coffee. Only down side was the walls are quite thin so you can hear next doors conversations clearly and doors opening/closing so if your a light sleeper this isn’t ideal! Nevertheless would recommend.

    レンタサイクルを止める場所に困っていたら、盗難防止のためにガレージの中に入れてくださるお気遣いをしてくださりました。 設備もめちゃくちゃ綺麗で新しくて、値段よりもお得だと思います。
