good location, really nice staff and the capsules were really good. only thing that lets this place down is the complete lack of appliances and crockery or even drinks in the common area. to stay it was sparse would be an understatement, everything else was really good

Great Stay in Kyoto”
We visited Kyoto from Osaka that day so only JR was available. I strongly suggested you to take public bus or cab from Kyoto JR station to the hostel as it was 30 minutes walking distance. Great receptionists who were kind and friendly, even helpful of finding local coffee shops around. Easy access with public bus with 230 yen per ride even late evening around 23:00.

Overall, we had a great stay in Santiago guesthouse. Here are some good and not so good points: > They let you stay on their lobby and use their bathroom even we are not yet checked in. (We came from Tokyo and arrived at 8am while check in time is 4pm, they let us use their facilities and left our luggage in the 2nd flr.) > They keep the facilities clean (bathroom, common area, kitchen). I saw the two receptionist was also cleaning the kitchen and the carpet at the same time. > Even you accidentaly left some stuffs from the bathroom, they will put it in the lavatory for you to see it. > I love the carpeted hallway. Not so good... > 20 minute walk from the nearest train station. > You can hear the traffic noise.

Nice hostel with a cafe on the ground floor. It's located near the Kiyomizudera Temple Tourist Area. Little bit far from the city center like Shincho, Gion, etc. It's also quite far from Kyoto station. But you can easily use the local bus to get there (approx 10 mins).

They are just greedy hostel owners”
I couldn’t come on the day I booked the room, because my bus got canceled due to the typhoon coming. Called them and asked if they could change my booking dates, from 1st-5th to 2nd-6th, they gave very unclear answer. And the next day I came, they told me my booking was already fully paid so i still got charged for the first day that I didn’t stay, and even asked for more money for a new type of tax that never got mentioned on the booking. Well greedy business people never care if there is an earthquake or typhoon or whatsoever if you already pay, so my best advice is you shouldn’t choose to pay through Agoda, but pay at the hotel, so you don’t get charged if you can’t come. They use volunteers as room cleaners, since they don’t wanna pay for any staff. The room is smelly, even though the volunteers try to keep it clean, but 12 beds in one narrow room would always make smelly room.

Budget place in tourist attractions. ”
Guesthouse is clean, spacious public area for everyone. Location is not so bad as is at the Higashi-Gojo intersection, across the road is pathway to Kiyomizu dera temple. A short walk to Gojozaga bus station,but a bit far(750 m) from the nearest convenient store(100¥ Lawson shop,7-11)& Kiyomizu Gojo Hankyu station.Guesthouse also provides Public kitchen ( oven, microwave ,other kitchenwares )to cook.

Very good location”
To walk to the hostel takes 15mins walk from the station & be surprise by the slope. Jr pass cannot use need to transfer line 170yen per ppl. Kyoto attractions is by walking from the hostel such as kiyomizu temple, nishiki market. Arashiyama bamboo forest and inari shrine a few stations away. Nearby have 2 family mart 10mins walk. Hokkaido milk ice cream must try near kiyomizu dera entrance shop name 喜楽庵岡本.

A clean hostel with a great staff.”
The staff here was incredibly friendly and helpful! When I checked in the staff member at reception recommended a lot of great spots to check out around Kyoto. The hostel is connected to a really nice cafe. The entire hostel was very clean and tidy. It is a little bit far from Kyoto Station, but other than that, everything was perfect.

Santiago Guesthouse provides just what you need for spot-on price”
If you're looking for low-price stay, shower, bed, kitchen etc. this is your best bet. Access to downtown and nishiki market is cheap and easy. Interesting visits and sights are close. Me and my girlfriend visited Kyoto for sightseeing and nightlife and this place gave us everything we needed. The only possible con is snoring roommates in the dormitory. But if you can handle that, there's no reason you wouldn't want to stay here. Excellent value for money. Recommended.

It was a good deal for solo travelers. ”
I stayed here for 5D4N and just paid less 6k JPY which is one of the best offers one could get. Note: It was July 6-10 (maybe a slack season) Access: For me this is better than staying near Kyoto Station. This is near Kiyomizu Temple, Gion District, Yasaka Shrine. So if you wanted to walk around these places, this is a good place. Walking down the Yasaka dori to Gion during sunset is a must especially with the Golden Hour. You can get nice shots. 😊 Amenities: The wifi does not work well and the room smells (i think musty) Kitchen - You can cook. Iron for clothes - I hope they have iron or steamer for our wrinkled clothes that we can borrow or rent. 😊 Toilet and shower room - the places are clean. They even have free bath soap and shampoo. Freebies: They offer good discount prices of the food in the cafe below. You get a free sake or a plum wine. Will I be going back? Definitely yes. Will recommend this place to friends.
