Absolutely fantastic hostel. Clean, adorable, great location and such friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be returning when I'm back in Kyoto!
The hostel was located in central Kyoto so going anywhere you'd want to visit in Kyoto is actually easy - walking distance to Nijo Castle so everything orientates around there. The owners and staff were nice, helpful and friendly and largely it was easy place to stay in. The place itself is a Japanese style space (i.e. small) and there is only one toilet and two showers which can take you a while, there is no dryer so you have to kind of climb up to the 2nd floor to dry any laundry.
We stayed in the 8-man room at Hostel Mundo Chiquito. This was a very affordable option, however the rooms were spectacularly cramped and often led to nearly suffocating conditions at night. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the facilities were very clean and well maintained. While this hostel is a decent stay for the value, I would strongly dissuade travelers from attempting the 8-man rooms here in lieu of the private rooms. All in all, this was a positive experience.
Such a cute and quaint little place! Had a little trouble finding the place. But the staff was extremely friendly and even came out to the intersection to get me! Equipped with full kitchen, nice showers, washer and dryer. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again!
Cool place to stay, for those willing to visit Kyoto. Conveniently located, slightly far from the night life areas, but still within walking distance.
Loved this place! If I go back to Kyoto some day, I'll definetely stay there again. The guest house is so cozy and charmy. Feels like home! The staff is so cool, Young people, very kind, happy and always trying to help. Good vibes! Also in the bar Otro Mundo there is a nice atmosphere and yummy food! I strooooongly recommend it! Muchas gracias Mundo Chiquito!
Comfortable beds, friendly staff, & great location just off the busy main road with easy access to bus stops & a grocery store. One thing to note: you do need to go outside to use the restroom & showers (at least if you're staying downstairs, not sure what it's like in the upstairs area). It's not too bad, especially if you're staying in the spring or summer, but definitely something to keep in mind if you'll be traveling in the winter. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend.
