Welcome to our hostel

This award winning hostel offers all types of groups an amazing experience when they are staying here. Not only are the facilities some of the best in the country – there is a swimming pool and a tennis court - the staff have an exceptional programme of activities on offer which show guests a true taste of Japan.

Take part in a walking tour of the Sagano-Arashiyama area which has some of the most renowned sightseeing spots in Kyoto. Local guides are on hand to show our guests this true Japanese gem which is well and truly off the tourist trail.

Staff at the hostel can also put your group in touch with MeetUs Kyoto - a student organisation that supports foreign tourists to experience Japanese culture and helps them interact with local people in Kyoto.

Their mission is “creating new types of tourism by meeting local people”. Surrounded by nature, our hostel in Kyoto is perfectly situated for groups to make the most of the nearby countryside but it equally accessible to the top city attractions with excellent transport links on the doorstep.

So whether your group is in Kyoto to see the Cherry Blossom or to visit the many World Heritage sites and temples or you are there to soak up the Japanese culture, our hostel in the north west of the city provides your group with the perfect base.
