The appeal of Spicy Masara Curry Shop is not only the appeal of delicious and fast curry, but also the store's price and convenience. Each meal is less than ¥1000, and even if you add toppings like egg, cheese, or a croquette to your meal, the meal would still cost less than ¥1400.

Piece Hostel Kyoto

Piece Hostel Kyoto

Bonson Lam

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.
