I recommend this hostel because it is totally convenient with one metro station 1 minute away, and a train station 2 minutes away on foot, especially for the price! I was expecting much less, but it turned out to be really a nice, clean and convenient hostel.
very nice cheap hostel in the city, with a good location. thanks to the crew who are awesome and helpful Mata Ne

Great staff, perfect location, clean, safe, quiet, fully equipped. Can you imagine anything else you need from a hostel?
Very basic room and a little noisy, but good price and good facilities - wifi, common room, information etc.
Very friendly staff. A bit far from Central Osaka but very close to subway stations so it's very convenient to get around.
Amazing value for the money. Apparently the area is not the best, but I felt safe and secure my entire time at this hostel. Lovely staff, amazing place to get settled in Osaka. Highly recommend.
The staff are really helpful and friendly, I will think of them fondly. I stayed in a private single room. While spacious, it was also very austere. There were only 2 private toilets on the ground floor, the rest of the bathrooms were mixed gender with exposed urinals, which was slightly awkward. Great location 2 min walk from JR Shinimamiya station or Metro Dobutsuenmae station. Walking distance to Shinsekai area with lots of local eateries. I would recommend to budget travelers.
good location, near to station and hostel is easy to find
I stayed in the cheaper single room. Perfect for me! Clean, with a window, quiet, and wifi. The communal washing facilties are also very clean. The kitchen is ideal for making your own food. Very nice staff, and good bicycles for hire. The location is perfect, not far from Nanba. Loads of pubs, restaurants and a cheap supermarket nearby. This place is definitely underrated.
This hostel is really the best hostel that value for money, the staff is great and the location is close with osaka tower which is the best place to enjoy delicious and cheap japanese food in osaka.it's also very close with dobunsetmae station that has easy access to the center of osaka (umeda and namba). But if you are looking the place that have night life,I recommend you to choose other hostel around namba and umeda but definitely the cost will be higher.
There was no heater in the room! Will I get frozen in winter? I guess the hostel has many guests. sometimes the toilets and shower rooms are not clean.
Its near the JR station and the train station as well, make you very easy to travel around in Osaka.. The staff is really helpful and can speak english very well.
Didnt expect more for this price. There is a lot of hostel around that place with the average price of 1500yen~2000 yen.
Great place to stay for backpackers (don't expect 5star hotel for this price). Rooms are clean and neat, staff very helpful and nice. There is a common room downstairs, where you can always meet new people, kitchen, showers You can even rent a bicycle there (unfortunately only until 11pm, which is kind-of a pain in the neck, especially if you want to rent it for 2 or 3 days and you have to bring it back every night and then pick it up again in the morning...) Overall highly recommended
Near subway and the price friendly for wallet. More toilet and bathroom will be much appreciated.
This place is awesome for backpackers, kinda confusing to get home from the triangle area at first but doesn't take long and is 25 minute walk from dance clubs and such. Just havin a time, thank you yoyo for an amazing time and unforgettable memories
Best value for money of all the hostels I had ever stayed in! Very friendly staff as well. Doors are not really sound proof, location is quite funky, but it's close to subway and JR station, so that's no biggie. Recommended for a good budget stay.
The place is a little bit far from the turistic places. The room had a terrible smell and not clean at all. They have just 3 showers were just only one is modern, the others are old and they use wooden pieces to stand up. I was in a single room but even that way i even listened the snores of my neighbor. Still is a good choice if you are looking for a very cheap place.

The whole hostel only has 3 showers for all guests which is not enough for us. The kitchen is untidy
Everything is great except that the rooms could use a little renovation. They are old, smelly, mouldy and need some paint. New doors would be good so that the rooms are more sound proof.
