About Hostel Mundo

"Hostel Mundo Chiquito" opened in 2012 as a sister hostel of "Hostel Mundo Kyoto". Through an elegant shade, lamplight casts a welcoming glow over travelers arriving at the entrance of Hostel Mundo Chiquito in Kyoto. While Mundo Chiquito is Spanish for "Small world", staying within its wooden walls will give the traveler a distinctly Japanese cultural experience. Housed in a traditional "machiya," Chiquito stands in the shadow of the ancient Nijō Castle. Though machiya have defined the architectural atmosphere of downtown Kyoto for centuries, they are rapidly disappearing as the city embraces modernity. However, Mundo has been lovingly restored to showcase the old world charm of this quintessentially Kyoto-style accommodation. Like the silk thread that runs through the kimono textiles that are also synonymous with Kyoto, the machiya ties the present to the past - the temporal warp to the weft - and Chiquito neatly envelopes guests in the rich shroud of its own brand of hospitality. And the warm glow in the cheeks of these travelers is reflected outside, where the lamp shines on through the night under a grey tiled roof.
