Guest House Hachi
Much of Kyoto’s ancient architecture is immaculately preserved, and this hostel is no exception. Located in a renovated machiya (townhouse), Guest House Hachi offers an affordable alternative. Hachi has private rooms with tatami flooring as well as shared dorms. A small Japanese garden offers space for peaceful rest and reflection. Hachi is only one stop away from Kyoto Station in historic Shimabara, formerly a courtesan and later a geisha district.
