Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan's capital until it was moved to Tokyo in 1868, is considered by many to be Japan's most beautiful city. Only Rome lays claim to more designated Unesco World Heritage Sites than this city nestled amongst the mountains of Western Honshu.

The staff at this hostel are great! Very friendly and good at English, they try their best to make you feel at home. We stayed in the mixed dorm - the privacy curtain offers much more privacy than other dorms, and the large lockers they provided were a rare luxury in Japan. ... more
