In terms of location, Tour Club is very convenient: walking distance from Kyoto station, between two nice buddhist temples, and in a central position to visit all the wonderful sites spread in the city. This hostel offers all the facilities you can expect from any hostel. However it has something else which makes it special: the staff is very kind... More

Quite easy to find according to directions on their website. Nice common room. Beautiful interior. Good bathing facilities and comfortable beds. Close to a very, very good yakitory bar/cafe. But.... Curfew at 23:00 is a BIG minus!! Absolutely no need for that in a backpackers hostel! Severely limits ones possibility to experience Kyoto nightlife.. And even more important - it's... More

The hotel size was not too big, not to small, and easy to find. It's within the walking distance from Kyoto station, even with your luggage. The first impression was that the staffs were very nice and friendly. That was a good welcome for us. We booked a family room for 4 people. The room was so comfortable, clean, and... More

Lonely planet rated this as the best value for money in Kyoto. I disagree. The location was quite good as it is close to the Kyoto railway station. The room had a good size, but the beds were uncomfortable and the bathroom was unappealing. The only thing, which I could see was done to the room during 'cleaning', was that... More

We stayed at the Tour Club in Kyoto for 6 nights. It is an easy walk from Kyoto station and very close to two very nice temples. We visited them the first day as we arrived from Narita before the check-in time. We dropped our backpacks off at the office and headed out for the rest of the afternoon. The... More

My husband and I spent a week at Tour Club with our 5 month old baby. It is located on a quiet sidestreet, but is a short walk to the station which is important in Kyoto since the sights are scattered far and wide.

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
