What are some good hostels in Tokyo and Kyoto for a solo traveler?
Several years ago I stayed at Raise a Smile Hostel Berlin
, and it made my visit to that city one of my best travel experiences. It was smaller, so they focused on solo travelers and pairs, and they made the task of connecting with other travelers in a strange city much easier and fun (e.g. the employees were friendly and would introduce people to each other, and take groups out to bars and stuff at night).
I'd like to find one or two places with a similar atmosphere to that if possible.
Also, what's the best tool for an English speaker for planning routes on Japan's rail network? Is Google Maps any good for this?
