Kyoto Hostel Kanouya is a friendly, cosy, clean and affordable hostel in a traditional old Japanese building, based in ‘Kanouya’, located in Nishijin, a residential and quiet area in Kyoto. Since 2006
This hostel prepared Japanese style culture. If you don't like or don't understand the Japanese style... Don't choose this hostel. ( This is not a Ryokan !! Ryokan is more rich building and more expensive .)
Difficult to access? But, who's keep the traditional scene and town? This town and there street build 1200 years ago. Why I made a hostel here. It has really reason!
Note: Kyoto is unaffected by the earthquake and the Hostel is still open everyday. Thanks.
