My favorite Japanese stay
I was so pleased with Hostel Mundo! It has the style of a traditional Japanese home, with all the comforts that come along with that. That means snug rooms with sleeping cushions on tatami mat floors, a warm home-like environment in the common quarters, and a welcoming staff that is knowledgeable about the surrounding area of Kyoto. I actually wish to stay here again! So I hope I can the next time I want to visit Kyoto. A little distant from the more happening parts of the city, and a bit of a walk to the closest train station, but otherwise really, memorably great in all ways.

Very Good 8.0
Nice accomodation
Locate near train station and subway. Give choice to customer to choose mode of transportation to arrive here. There are tons of other hotel here. Near the main road. Look safe. I arrive here at night and everything went smooth. Shared bathroom at ground from about 9 and toilet about 4. Hair dryer, iron, weighting scale available. The counter have lots of guide for the city. Wifi is good. Inside room is clean with futon, tv and fridge. Overview, it was a good 1 night backpacking style stay.
