Guest House Nagasaki Burabura: Affordable seaside hangout
Centrally located in the midst of shops, restaurants and plenty of spots offering bicycle rentals, Khaosan Kyoto Theater is the newest addition to a chain of hostels by Khaosan. There is a rooftop terrace, as well as a lounge / library, a well-stocked bar downstairs, and although relatively small, is intimate enough to socialise with other travellers.
This hostel does not feel like a traditional Kyoto Merchant house. There are no macha green noren curtains or the smell of a fresh tatami mat, characteristics that are more in abundance at Roujiya or even some of the rooms at Hana Hostel. Instead it has a glampacking hostel feel, with minimalist black and white lights and concrete walls like a contemporary art gallery, a bit like Khaosan Hostel meets the Hotel Anteroom just down the road in Kujo. On the other hand, if you are prepared to spend a bit more for a private luxury room, but keep the contemporary art feel, check in at the Hotel Kanra near Gojo Station.
While the building is quite large, there aren’t so many guests, giving some sense of community. On the other hand the building is so spread out that you can quite easily find your own little corner without being bothered by anyone.
