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.

nice hostel
The hostel is located at a very quite area, about 5 minutes walk to the bus station, 500 yen for one day bus pass can be all around the attraction, the room was too small for 6 girls, I have not space to unpack or put my things, as I was on the top of the bulk bed. I am living in a old house at Ireland, so I do understand you have to walk slowly and light step. as it was a old house, everything should designed very small, like small room, small toilet, my roommate always hit her head, because she is a bit tall. The staffs were very nice, teach me where to go, how to go, and what to go, and they speaks good english.

Mundo is great!
I stayed for about a week at Mundo and Im glad i did! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's a small hostel but cosy. Walking distance to Nijo Castle and even the Imperial Palace.
