PBP Hostel Kyoto

Why did I choose PBP Hostel?

I was looking for a Hostel in Kyoto when I was in Tokyo. I have seen many of them but I haven’t immediately noticed this hostel but when I saw it, I was amazed by the design and this is the main reason why I chose that place, and essentially also for its location. Indeed, PBP Hostel Kyoto is well situated because you don’t need to walk a lot to reach the subway station or the bus stations. There are even bus stops near to the hostel. I can say that PBP Hostel stands out from the crowd because I stayed at many and different hostels, and this hostel has everything we need. Design, cleanness, and facilities they provide are the keys to that hostel.

I highly recommend that place in Kyoto where you will feel at home.
