Backpacker's Hostel Tour Club is a great budget hostel. Not far at all from the Kyoto train station (easy 10 min walk with hostel's directions), clean and comfortable. The capsule style dorms have feather duvets and I was very warm in early December. I liked the personal tv, outlet and the curtain which can allow for privacy. The shower and...

Tour Club is a really nice hostel located a short walk from the main Kyoto station. The hostel was very clean and I really liked the "capsule style" bunk beds. They offer a lot more privacy than normal bunk beds (each has a curtain, reading light, plugs, and TV). The room had a big locker (suitcase size) for each bed...

Tour club offers a semi-traditional with a modern twist of staying in Japan. The facilities and amenities as well as the location are excellent. Due to delayed flight, we arrived in Kyoto later than expected. I have notified the hostel well in advance that we are arriving late hence they offered to give me direction of self-check-in. They even, left...

This charming budget guest house has a really friendly and helpful manager/receptionist who speaks great English.

Very close to the Kyoto Station, bus stations and all the stores you need. The living room and zen garden is very Japan, sometimes with plum wine and sake for guests to try.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a hostel, please do not expect luxury. Our ensuite are small and without daily-maid because we focused on providing basic ensuite rooms for the price of youth hostel dormitories in Kyoto. We offer cheaper dormitory too. If you need more than the basics, we cannot meet your needs. However, we provide best value for money, such as zen garden, Japanese lounge, free kimono-try, wifi and information book. ... more   less
