The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke great English. The Room was secure and clean, it was also an added bonus that towels and tea were free. Quiet time at night was awesome and it was easy to get a nice sleep here.


This hostel has a very friendly and helpful English-speaking staff. In the first-floor bedroom you get your own cubicle with a futon. It's similar to a capsule hotel but it's twice as large and has a large chest with a padlock to store your belongings. Good showers as well. A great hostel overall, but be sure to check the cancellation policy if you think there is any chance you'll be changing your plans as it's particularly strict.


nice staff, steep staircase


Had a great stay here! The hostel has a more traditional feel to it which I thought was nice and the staff was amazing! Very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it and I'd stay here again!


Really nice tradionnal hostel. Located near the imperial palace and the Nijojo castle. People are friendly and there a nice garden.


Extra friendly atmosphere, lovely house, nice people! The only thing that could improve is the beds in the dorm, a bit uncomfortable. But we loved Mundo Chiquito, and will definitely come back if coming to Japan again!


good staff...small hostel but literally. .Im 1.85 and crashed my head 4 times inside.Good internet,good bathroom and kitchen.


We didnt get any sheets for the bed or even a pillowcase. The blanket also looked very dirty. If you stay here you will need to bring your own sheets and pillowcase. Also we stayed in the mixed dorms and it felt super claustrophobic and a bit dirty.
