Beautiful little hostel. Staff were awesome, I hung out with the owner, Midori, and other people in the hostel. She definitely made it feel like home. Its in a good location for getting to all parts of the city, however, there isnt much to do at night around the area so keep that in mind. Still, i was sad I had to check out and leave. The bed area was slightly disappointing, but no big deal since it was still better than most hostels ive stayed in the past.
I had a wonderful time here :) Since it´s such a small hostel you get to meet everyone and everyone that works here is so nice too!!! Also liked the style in the dorm room, with the curtains separating each bed. Loved it ;)
It was a nice place to stay but nothing special to remember. Overall a decent place to stay. Good location.
Mundo Chiquito is truly the loveliest hostel I have ever had the pleasure of calling home. I felt welcome from the moment I arrived and extended my stay so that I wouldn't have to leave! It is easy to get around from their location, easy to find (just follow the instructions in the confirmation email) and easy to have a good time. The dorm looks squished at first but each bed 'room' is quite spacious. If you can stay here, do it. Thank you everyone for starting my travels off on the right foot!
The atmosphere was absolutely awesome, it was like a little family in that hostel. Almost everyday the people gathered to have food and drinks together. The staff was insanely friendly and moreover helpful beyond belief. Yuya, the manager, offered me to help me take care of some personal stuff even on his day off. Unbeatable in value for money, unbeatable.

Really nice hostel and friendly staff, great atmosphere. Very clean and comfortable. Japanese style living room and small garden were awesome.
A little difficult to find but it was nice and quiet where it was. It as more like a "home" environment, but overall I enjoyed it. Clean place and the staff were friendly. I would stay there again.
Amazing! Everything was very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I liked the location: it wasn't in the heart of things, so it was relaxing and quiet, but it was a short bus ride away from popular spots. Best of all, this hostel had Such a relaxing laidback atmosphere. Definitely stay here if you go to Kyoto!
Fantastic hostel, close to the centre of town. Yuya and yuko are great hosts.
This is a really nice little hostel and the staff were very friendly. My only criticism is that they didn't have any bikes available for use because they were all either being used or broken.
There was a huge trunk by each bunk with a padlock, in which you can easily store a large suitcase or rucksack. The beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to walk past Nijo-jo (the World Heritage Site castle) every day on the way to the bus stop! The staff were lovely, the showers were good, and the common area was very pleasant to hang out in.
If you have a JR pass I would not recommend staying here. Only useful for getting around by bus. Only one toilet. Otherwise perfect place.
Warm, inviting, and provides a sense of community which is really what hostel stays are all about. I can't stress enough how awesome the staff here is. I look forward to my next stay!
Great hostel, great people! I enjoyed a lot! :)
I highly recommend you to stay there during your trip in Kyoto. It is located right in the center of Kyoto, so it is very convenient, everything was clean, the atmosphere is really good. And the best of all is that the owners are super nice and friendly. The house is japanese type, so it has a lot of charm and the private space around the bed is biggest than in any other hostel. I think this was the best hostel I stayed in in Japan, and the cheapest.
It was an awesome place with nice people and good facility. had a traditional japanese look and great friends around. it was very near to the city centre and a great place to be. i would recommend this for kyoto.
