Great place to stay in Kyoto. Dorms are very private and beds are very comfortable. Recommended.

The dorms are a good size...but there is no social area. I just moved to khaosan guesthouse and to my surprise they have a huge lounge area...free coffee and tea...much more comfortable. After a full day outside you need a place to sit...santiago huesthouse needs to get rid of the coffee shop down stairs and upgrade their hotel by putting in a relax zone

I would really recommend staying at the share house near the hostel. The traditional style Japanese rooms are comfortable and offer more privacy the hostel but you'll have a great stay at either. The staff are great. They have very good english, are friendly and exceptionally helpful.

We stayed at te share house around the corner from the hostel and it was great. It's the perfect alternative to a hostel stay, particularly if you've been travelling for a while as it has more of a home feel. It has excellent Wifi, is spotlessly clean, has a relaxed feel and is in a great location. I would highly recommend staying here.

I really enjoyed my stay at Santiago, I thought the location was pretty central and it was easy to find. I loved the privacy curtains and there was a socket above my bed to plug in my phone which was a very nice touch. This was a very reasonably priced hostel and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend Santiago to all travellers looking for clean, centrally located, well priced accommodation.

I had an absolute wonderful time at this hostel. The restaurant attached was convenient, me and my friend used it as a platform to meet new people. It is pretty easy to spot the people staying at the hostel. The food was form 400-800 yen and was very good. Coffee was around 500 but you get what you pay for its excellent. The sleeping area was great privacy when you want it with your own light and outlet. The showers were clean and modern. This place was great fun I made a lot of new friends.

It has been an amazing stay. Comfortable dorm bed. Clean bathroom and toilet. It was quiet despite being in a strategic location. The hostel location is perfect. You can easily walk to almost all the nearest attraction. If you are not the type to walk then you can use the one day bus pass. It was so convenient as the bus stop is just beside the hostel. Definitely will stay here again the next time i visit Kyoto.

It located very far from station or city center(walk about 30 min). Common room is very small, besides it's next to reception desk. No kitchen is the worst part. There is a microwave oven and refrigr but located next to reception desk, so cooking or heating food is uncomfortable so as not to bother other guest or staff. 1st floor cafe is not a place for guest.. If you stay long time at cafe you need a lot of guts or money to order beverage. Overall atmosphere here was bad.

Some of the backpackers changed the bed without the staff knowledge therefore we had a difficulty when we checked in. Other than that it was a good experience and i would stay again if i go to Kyoto again.

This hostel was pretty awesome. I loved that the showers have areas to put your dry clothes. Beds are comfy and having your own curtain and power is good. I would stay at this hostel again.

The hostel was really affordable and with a close proximity to some great tourist spots. Staffs are accommodating. Will definitely go back there.

It's a good place to stay. The beds are comfortable and the staff is really amazing. Te toilets and showers are modern, although not all that clean. The facilities are OK - a microwave, fridge and computers, although the hostel lacks a kitchen and the wifi sometimes doesn't work. The location is also somewhat lacking - it's close to several great sightseeing areas, but quite far from a subway station, which makes getting around a bit inconvenient. Despite that, it's still a good, cheap hostel.
