Cordial and friendly staff. Not really a backpacker atmosphere but a good break if you want privacy.

-There are totally 6 shower rooms in this hostel it's enough even in rush time (maybe just wait for 5 min) -2 toilet on 1st floor and 3 more in 3rd floor, they are all cleen and never let me wait -laundry area must be waiting sometime but not big deal So totally this place is good for who is looking for reasonable price accommodation...if I have a chance to go Osaka again I'll stay here ;)

We liked the showers! Very clean and modern... Best thing about the hostel. I guess what you pay is what you get :)

Good place if you're looking to party. If you want to go to bed at a decent hour and get up to sightsee the next day however, stay somewhere else. Other customers came home at 2am drunk out of their skulls and kept us awake till 3:30, making a ruckus in the communal room a few doors down although it was meant to be closed at 2am. Staff, although nice people, did nothing to discourage them in this case. Will probably stay elsewhere next time.

They didn't have electric adaptors to lend, only to sell. I missed some more showers in other floors. I missed the possibility of having breakfast, even paying extra.

The price is great! The location is fine, it's not in downtown but very close to a metro station, what it's enough in japan! The suburb around is very cute, with nice places to eat around it. It's nice to have it's own room, and the employees are great people !

Close to subway and JR stop. Lots of food and activities close by. A mix of a hostel and hotel so didnt really feel the backpacking vibe. bed on floor isnt too comfortable, suggest bringing own pillow. only need 1 day in osaka

This hostel's facilities were pretty crummy. The wallpaper was stained, no tatami mats like in the photos and the bathrooms smelled of urine. It's also located in an obviously sketchy area... lots of drunks and homeless wander the streets surrounding Hotel Toyo. However, for the price of a single room, this place is a bargain. It's also conveniently located next to the subway as well as many restaurants and entertainment facilities. (Don't miss the okonomiyaki restaurant a few corners down.)

This hostel recommended for low price. Fair enough. The environment is not bad as other people think. It is safe place. Don't worry about rumors surrounding this place, abosolutely good place by the way. Recommended hostel. Cheers

It will be marvelous if the toilets on the other floors can be as clean as that on the first floor.

Good place to stay, good value for money, very close to a station that can get you to the middle of the city. The Staff are very nice. Would recommend this for anyone who isnt to picky.

Awesome place. Very interesting location just to walk around as there is a red light district near by. Even though it is near this red light district I still felt very safe, although Japan in general is quite safe so that's no surprise. Really near Spa world, which is fantastic. The staff speak really good English and are very helpful. Don't forget to rent a bike from the hostel and ride around.
