Speaking of trip in Kyoto, you might be anxious about your bed. Me, too.
Hotels in Kyoto is really high. Even old cheap hotels cost over 10000 yen ! Oh my !
I never want to spend many money for such an old cheap hotels, so I always stay in dormitory when I go to Kyoto (and also Osaka).
This time, too. I stayed in Piece Hostel Kyoto this time.
It’s close to JR Kyoto station. It takes about 5 minutes walk from Hachijo-guchi entrance of JR Kyoto station.
Piece Hostel Kyoto have not only dormitory but also private (for 1 or 2 person) room (from 4000 yen).
It’s very close from the station in a straight line. But it takes time to cross Hachijo-dori street.
You walk along Hachijo-dori street for a while, and then this narrow street appear. This signboard help you 😉 Go straight this street and then white building appear.
This is Piece Hostel Kyoto.
They are also open as cafe bar.
There is a front desk for check-in at the center of the floor.
The front desk is open from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m.They keep your baggage (before check-in, after check-out) during the time.
Check-in after 0 a.m. is available if you ask them in advance.
Though it’s close to the station, it’s in the residential area and it was calm at night.
You can book this accommodation at agoda, Expedia, Booking.com and so on.
They do their business mainly for tourists from abroad. So, they can speak English and Chinese. And many notice in the accommodation is written in English.
Room for 16 people
The most inexpensive room in this accommodation is MIX DORMITORY wth 16 beds.
From 2400 yen to 2900 yen. When I stayed in this accommodation, it was the middle of cherry blossoms season. Trip in Kyoto in this season is the most expensive as well as summer vacation! But I could stayed in the dormitory room with 2900 yen (cancellation was unavailable) 🙂
The place under eache tables is good for suitcases.
Wood, blue and white. The interior of the room is simple and cool. There’re windows.So, I didn’t feel cramped. Card key for the room.

Though there’re not many foods, you can have Japanese and European breakfast.
Rice. Of course, they have white rice.
This is Mazegohan. Maybe it’s simple one that is mixed with dried ingredients.
Instant miso soup.
Apart from miso soup, the staff cooked soup
Simple egg soup was good.
Their breakfast is enough for me.
Another, you can order fruits drinks, milk, coffee and so on with extra charge.
What I felt
There’s no dissatisfaction about Piece Hostel Kyoto. I was really satisfied with them in all things like facilities, room, location. Though I though dormitory is good for short trip but not good for long trip because those are narrow and we can’t keep our private space.
But this accommodation isn’t so.
I think I feel good until the end if I stay in this accommodation for a long period.
There’s Piece Hostel Sanjo in Sanjo (Karasuma) area.
Basically everything is the same as Piece Hostel Kyoto.
