This has been 1 of the best backpacker dormitory that I have stayed. I have opted to stay in the mixed dormitory and though it is double decker bed, there is an individual wooden sliding door to enclose it to become a wooden capsule. it is very cosy though fully cover up; ventilation is still good. privacy is good too,...

Typical hostel setup, but right off the main strip, so can't complain. Lots of events going on, and a bar to go with it. Plenty of amenities to offer, and staff speaks English. Rates aren't too bad and would stay here again.

A really great hostel with an amazing staff. It's very easy to find, and the location is really awesome. The Gion district and the attractions surrounding it were accessible by a nice scenic walk, and everything else was simple enough to get to by bus. The Nishiki Food Market, located right next door, was a highlight of my trip. Be...

I'm used to staying at hostels. However, staying at this hostel was not a good experience. As no private room was available I was staying in the 14 bed mixed dorm with my boyfriend. The room was very smelly. When I asked the staff to change the room I was told there was no spare room. Also, the mattress was...

Firstly, the hostel is absolutely fantastic. Clean, wonderful bathroom facilities, affordable laundry and a spacious open kitchen. The wifi is quick and reaches the capsules, which themselves are fantastic (don't think I had a better few nights sleep travelling than here). Most importantly, the staff are wonderful. I lost my phone the evening before we checked out, and with their...

Perfectly located close to Kawaramachi this hostel offers everything you could ask for. Clean, very well maintained facilities, cozy 'sleeping caves' as we called them and super friendly staff. The Kimono dorm was visually very appealing, but I ultimately liked the standard dormitory better.

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
