See some Gieshas Dec 17, 2009
Good price, nice staff, good facilities, beds are nice, many travellers. Best bit is it is in Giesha district so more chance to get some good photos, I manage to find 3 of them within 30 minutes of leaving this hostel. There is also a bus station up road, staff can give you daily pass ask for one 500yen, also they have map which is real easy to use and get around to the sites, you can use this to see kyoto all in one day, great place should stay here as cheap and good or if you are rich you can try those traditional private houses where they have servants. Just a warning that a lot of temples cost money so choose best ones if low on money.
Not far to find Giesha

I stayed in a 4-bed dorm. The room was a bit dirty. It did not seem that anybody came in to clean it on a regular basis. Lower bunk beds had very little head room; you couldn't sit upright. You have to be careful getting in and out of the lower bunk otherwise you'll hit your head.

Shower facilities were pretty good. Hot water, lots of privacy, and even soap & shampoo available.

Kitchen facilities were not too bad either. There was enough basic kitchen stuff to cook simple meals.

Free computer/internet access available in a cozy common room. My room had its own computer with internet access as well.

I didn't interact with staff much, but they were helpful when I had questions.

Bakpak Hostel Kyoto Overview

Centrally located in the Downtown Kyoto city but also giving visitors the luxurious advantage of being in front of the spectacular Kamogawa River.Just across the street is Kawarachi Kiyamachi and close beside is Gion, the Kyoto Geisha district and Minamiza Theater (the birth place of kabuki).The main Kyoto shopping center, the bustling night life of Kiyamachi kiyamachi and Gion (kyoto Geisha town) are on the hostel's doorstep.These places are the it circuit of Kyoto. Undisputedly the finest places for nightlife and culture. The area is teeming with restaurants, supermarkets, pubs, bars and karaoke houses, entertainment halls and much much more all waiting to give you a warm welcome. The cool breeze from the river and the hostels manufacture ensures you get good nights sleep.For the adverturous daylight explorers there are some of Japans most famous and arguably most important cultural spots such as: Gion, Kyoto imperial palace, Kiyomizu temple, Kenninji Temple, yasaka shrine, maruyama park, Kyoto Ebisu shrine and Kyoto Minamiza Theater (the birth place of kabuki). This is where you can gain the authentic Japanese experience. Its a great place to snap up some authentic Japan photographs too!!!
