The Hostel was good enough for a two day stay - but I wouldn't have liked to be there for a longer time. Shared bathrooms per floor meant that the toilets were very smelly (mixed bathrooms). The staff were really helpful - even posting something for us within Japan as we ran out of time before our flight. Would recommend the rooms with heaters as the one without was cold but bearable. Also easy access to Universal Studios Osaka.

Good location, though confusing train system makes it a little hard to find! Really cool staff that will help you out with pretty much anything.

The room and facilities were basic, but fine for price. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The one issue was that the WiFi happened to be down during our stay. They were very accommodating and let us go over to the lounge in the next door hostel to use the Internet, but it was still a hassle to not get internet in the room.

A very pleasant stay at the hostel. Services and the atmosphere were excellent. You can interact with people from other parts of the world in the common room. One thing is the common wash up counters were not equipped with hot/warm water. The water was freezing cold in the winter and yeah, extra refreshing in the morning.

Even though the place is a little bit old, the atmosphere is very nice and warm, the staff is very cool, friendly and helpful!! They make the place an awesome one! The single rooms are very good, but if it is cold season and you dont like the cold, they'll become a freezer, but they provide blankets and stuff so is ok!

This hostel is pretty nice. A room just for you. 1h by foot from the main places. If you rent a bicycle it does worth it. Them room was clean, shared toilet, 6 showers (4 with hot water), kitchen, living room, u can rent a bicycle at the hostel. wifi in all floors. Easy to find. Staff really nice. Understand english and japanese well.

Staff was really nice. The room was a bit small but it has everything one would need on a small trip for very cheap.

Tatami rooms without heaters are very cold in the winter. This seems standard for Japanese residents, but may be a surprise to guests expecting a warmed room. Instead, guests can rely upon the provided electric footwarmers and fleece blankets, which seemed relatively clean. Otherwise, staff was very friendly and the lounge and kitchen amenities were well equipped.

All that really needs to be said is: private room for the same price as a regular dormitory room. Everything else is just icing on the cake. The staff here are quite nice folk, but don't bother talking with the long-term guests here, as they're incredibly insular and not particularly friendly. However, if there's fellow travellers hanging out in the common room, you're sure to have a good conversation. Also, private room. Just, just that.

This place is more like a Hotel than Hostel, that feels like you're staying at a Hostel, if that makes any sense. First off, I can tell this Hotel was built a long time ago; I can see remnants of this being a very old place that they've constantly fixed up to make it hospitable (I manage and fix up properties). And honestly, they've done a good job at it! The 1st floor bathroom is AMAZINGLY clean and NICE, but the 2nd floor bathroom looks like its been abandoned. Would recommend staying here

Great place with great value. It will offer you a place to sleep, and good common area for socializing, but other wise the facility is very simple and plain. The room is only a futon on the floor, and it's extremely small, almost empty. It meets the necessities. If you are looking just for a place to sleep then this is a great option because it's soooo cheap.

very close to public transport

Very convenient location, with easy access to subway line and JR line which connects directly to the airport. The beds were really very comfortable and toilets are super clean!!! One downside is that the common room is not very 'common' or accessible as it is like a enclosed room that doesn't seem very welcoming though.
