HOSTEL WASABI Kyoto Machiya SOBA in KYOTO

Today, I'd like to introduce Hostel Wasabi Kyoto Soba, a traditional old house in Kyoto that has been converted into a hostel.
This inn is located in a residential area about 30 minutes by bus from Kyoto Station. The nearest train station, Kitano-Hakubaicho Station, is an 11-minute bus ride away. However, it is in close proximity to a number of tourist attractions, such as Nijo Castle, the Kyoto Imperial Palace, and Seimei Shrine, making this location surprisingly convenient! There is also bus access heading for Kinkakuji (The Golden Pavilion) and Arashiyama.
