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.

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

Hostel Mundo Chiquito is located on a quiet street a mere 5-minute walk to Nijo Castle. It is also within walking distance to the Kyoto Imperial Palace Park (15-20 minutes' walk). The location is convenient with bus stops in front of Nijo-jo and Marutamachi-dori, both of which have convenient connections to Kyoto Station and practically most of the main sights... More

If you are looking for extreme facilities or a posh / modern living environment, than Hostel Mundo Chiquito (not to be mistaken with Hostel Mundo) is definitely NOT the place for you. However, if you're looking for a traditional Japanese living experience, with the greatest people ever, Hostel Mundo Chiquito is everything you can ask for. The staff there, Yuko... More

Best staff ever, nice wooden building, which makes the hostel feel authentic, located in the center of Kyoto - walking distance to pretty much everything. If youre on a budget, I strongly recommend this hostel!
