My stay at the santiago guesthouse was good. The staff is very friendly and help you where ever they can.
The have a nice bar/café fownstairs and if you are a guest you get some discounts on beverages and drinks.

They have chill area with some free to use computers. But don't really have kitchen (water boiler and microwave, fridge)

Only 1 dryer and washing machine sonyou have to be lucky if its free!
The hostel itself is very clean good beds (except for the pillows to hard and small in my opinion...)

All by all a good stay!

We stayed in 12 bed dorm which was spacious and each bed had a curtain to ensure some privacy. The beds were pretty uncomfortable as the mattresses were really thin.

Although there were few showers and toilets for the number of guests (at peak times there were queues for the showers) the facilities were of a very clean standard. Theres a small communal area but not very comfortable or helpful for socialising and there were no kitchen facilities to cook.

The location was close to one of the popular temples and about 20 minutes walk from Gion (the location of shops and restaurants).

As a guest of the hostel you get a discount on the food from the cafe / restaurant below, which was great if you wanted a quick and tasty breakfast before heading out for the day.

Wifi was generally good but regularly cut out in the bedrooms. Staff were really friendly.

The hostel is really clean, very friendly staff, we stay in a 12 beds room and barely heard the people. Beds have curtains. Near to kizumidera temple but maybe 10 minutes walking from the subway station. The subway downstair is expensive. But some restaurans near there even a subway.

Room Tip: Laundry facilities, beds with curtains.

Friendly staff, lovely dorms, very clean and it's in a great location. Lovely ramen noodle restaurant down the road with very good prices also really nice udon noodle restaurants very near by. I would recommend to anyone. My girlfriend and I walked to the train station most days as it only takes about 20 minutes.
