      I really like Hostel Mundo. The staff Midori san and shou san are friendly and warm. I love Tida too. There are two sentou near the hostel so you can take nice shower there. I miss this place a lot.

      The best hostel I've ever stayed at! Beatiful and comfortable japanese style house, in a great location. They rent bikes at a very good price and you can easily ride all around the city from there. The staff was so friendly and helpful, I had a great time with them chatting with them, I felt like home. I even learned to cook Japanese food! :) It was a pitty I only stayed for three nights...

      Nicest staff (and cutest dog) ever! It's a very familiar atmosphere, everyone speaks good english and there's always someone to help or have a chat about sightseeing points. The rooms are big enough and very comfortable. Good access by train/bus and easy to find!

      It's beautiful place, small but cozy. You can stay in real Japanese house, not like other hostel. The staff Yuya was extremely kind ! 1hour bicycle rental was free so I can visit the Kyoto-go-sho by bicycle. Kyoto is smaller than I thought, If weather allowed me maybe I can go around all the city with bicycle. Free tea, coffee, water.

      Only the way to get there at the first time. Easy to be lost... Please check the way by google earth before you go there If you could :-p makes you easy. The shower room was only one so some night we had to wait. But we enjoyed the stay there.

      The staffs are very kind, and offers lots of useful information with full of warmth. The hostel is constructed in a traditional Japanese style, though the bathroom and toilet are in western style, they are all very small. However, there are two common bathes nearby, so it is also very easy to enjoy a big and fun bath. Also, there are two coin laundry store and two supermarkets within 5minutes walk. It's location is very easy to go to nijo-castle.

      As I mentioned, the bathroom is very small. And the toilets are actually in the garden so it is very cold to use in winter/early spring.

      I liked the traditional style of the hostel, the welcoming atmosphere and friendly environment. Umbrella and bike opportunities were also useful.

      This is an authentic wooden, homely and cosey place - it seems like a converted house and you really feel like you're in 'real' Japan as opposed to a purpose-built hotel. The owners were absolutely lovely people - helpful and accomodating. The kitchen had free coffee and tea and you could cook and use the fridge etc. There was lovely Japanese music playing and the lounge area had a laptop and comfortable seating. The room was small but had a great heater which was welcoming as it was freezing in Japan when I went. The shower is shared but was always clean, as were the toilets. I felt at home here and almost wish I had had more time to chill out there. The other people staying there were also all friendly and it was great to share travel stories with them,

      The only downside for me personally was the location. The website has clear directions from the station which are easy to follow, but the walk was at least 15 mins. I'm being a little picky as I was short on time - so a 15 minute walk shouldn't be a problem for most people. There are also buses going nearby. To be honest, the loveliness of the house outweighs the walking distance, and shouldn't deter anyone from staying here. The only thing is if you are a solo female traveller you may feel a little scared walking back at night as some of the streets are very dimly lit, but Japan is the safest country I have been to, so any paranoia stems from growing up in a dangerous city, and not from Japan being dangerous itself.

      Staffs are nice and friendly. The kitchen is small but well-equipped. For backpacker, it's quite good to stay.

      The unique shower is very small. Meanwhile, hot water is only avaliable in the shower room. When the hostel is full booked (about 15 persons?) in winter, need time to wait to use the shower room for hot water. And toiletes are very narrow and located outside. So it's very inconvenient and cold , when you go to the toilete in the night. I'll recommend to stay here in summer better than winter.
