Absolutely loved my stay at Hostel Mundo Chiquito. The staff are very helpful and friendly and it was such a pleasure talking with the well-travelled people. The hostel is an old though very clean machiya-style house. Showers were brand-new and modern with enough to space to get changed. Bunk beds come with a power outlet, lamp, curtains and a big...

2000yen per night via Booking.com for a shared bunk bed (with curtains and a power plug so its quite similar to a capsule hotel without the provided robes and free toiletries) was the cheapest stay I had in Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo. You can request for a towel to use from the ever friendly staff at reception. There is free... More

The staff is incredibly honored to have you and they are so helpful with whatever you need! The price is too cheap in my opinion... in fact I was going to stay in Kyoto for 2 nights but after having such great service from the staff (and looking at a travel book on their bookshelf) I decided to spend one...

I stayed in Hostel Mundo Chiquito for two nights. The staff was super friendly and helpful. It was easy to get around Kyoto and was even near the Nijo Castle. The dorm room was air conditioned, they provided a locked box for your stuff, should you need it and the common room was spacious. I even enjoyed the music they... More

Probably my favourite hostel I've ever stayed in. It's extremely aesthetically pleasing and very Japanese. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Hostel is in convenient location but a nice quiet area. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The overall experience was thoroughly enjoyable

Stayed at Mundo Chiquito for 10 nights and had a really amazing time. The house is very cosy and the atmosphere is great. The staff are among the friendliest you can imagine. You'll feel like part of a big family. As others pointed out already, the location is great and very convenient. Just rent a bike (500Y) and you can... More

Mundo Chiquito, means "very small world", you will not be disappointed with this small world in Kyoto. Convenicent traffic, 5 mins walk from Nijo Castel, bus 50, 9, 101 and 12 which in front of Nijo Castel can reach most of the famous sightseeings in Kyoto. The hostel is located on a very quite street, the stuffs are very friendly,... More

This cute little house is very Japanese to me. Staff there are very friendly and funny. Because of the size of the bed is too small for me and my friend, we asked for stuff to sleep on the floor. He brought us and made us laugh. Time here was quiet enjoyable! The location is great. There are many buses... More

From JR Kyoto Station you have to take bus number 9, 50 or 101 and get off at Nijojo-mae (Nijo Castle). Hostel itself is small but very nice! On the first floor you have a reception, living room, small kitchen annex (so you can easily cook your own food), two shared showers and a smoking area if needed. Upstairs -... More
