Abstract: Despite being the coldest among the known solar type protostars, Class 0 sources have inner warm regions where the dust reaches the evaporation temperature of the water ice mantle, e.g. 100 K. These regions, whose sizes are only few tens of AU, share many similarities with the "hot cores" of massive protostars, including molecular complexity. In this contribution, I review what we know today about the inner warm regions of solar type protostars. I will call these regions "hot corinos" to distinguish them from massive hot cores.
