Santiago Kyoto was very welcoming. The location is very near to all tourist spots and easily accessed by transit. I met many locals and Japanese tourists during the busy time of Sakura season and Golden week and can say i have made many life long friends during my stay. The tasks were simple and when we worked as a team we finished with plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the day

Nice guest house to stay at. Nicely situated and got on with the host rather well. Although apart from one karaoke night we didn't spend much time together i.e. shopping, collaborating, conversing.
