Guest House Bola Bola offers inexpensive accommodation in a traditional setting in west Kyoto. We have single-sex dormitories and private rooms available, all authentic Japanese tatami style.

Our location west of the city centre, 15 minutes by JR from Kyoto Station, is ideal for accessing a number of attractions including the Golden Temple, Stone Garden, Nijyo Castle, Bamboo Forest and several famous temples and shrines. Kyoto Studio Park, the birthplace of Japanese Cinema, is also nearby, where you can see samurai movies being filmed on outdoor Edo-period sets. For guests looking to add to their Japanese experience, we are located close to an onsen house.

We offer a variety of free services including internet access, toiletries, coffee and green tea.

Parties of 2 or more can stay in private rooms at dormitory prices (discount will be made upon arrival)
Payment must be made in CASH (JPY) on check-in.
