Santiago Guesthouse Kyoto, Kyoto

A decent dormitory, but do not expect too much
This was the first time I stayed at a dormitory style hostel. My "roommates" were considerate of our shared quarters and everyone kept their voices down. Everyone sharing the room had the door key, but most people did not feel the need to lock the door. One night, someone did and locked out an unsuspecting "roommate", who had to bang on the door. The room smelled and I was glad we were able to open the window for fresh air. A little inconvenient that the showers were only located on one floor. There were only 5 shower stalls but while fully booked, we did not have trouble taking showers at our convenience.

Close to Kiyomizu, okayish
Close to Kiyomizu dera and Kodaiji. Showers and lobby on 2nd floor, room was on 4th floor, no lift so that was inconvenient. Lockers small. Beds had curtains. Closed between 12 and 4pm, no real security for bags if you get there early and want to leave them. Showers tiny, barely adequate, you've got to keep pushing a button to keep them working. On the upside, CHEAP!

Good times
This was my first stay in a hostel and it was a good experience. It was unisex, lots of couples and families. Everyone very friendly and respectful of our space. Each bed has a curtain around it for privacy as well as lockers to keep your personal belongings safe. Desk provided us with maps and refrigerators available for food. I do wish we had stayed closer to downtown area, but only about ~20 min walk. Close to shrines and temples!

Good location to visit the city
From Kyoto train station, there is a bus to go to the guesthouse. It is very well located to visit the city. We had rent some bikes from the hotel, what is very convenient. The room was clean and the reception very polite and helpful. The breakfast only starts at 8am, a bit late for us but correct for the price. We recommend.
