Nice place


stay here for 4 nights, really a great place to stay in Osaka, very good location to come from KIX airport, also a good location to find, walk 3 minutes from Tennoji station and you can find 7-11, restaurant and drugstore next to the hostel. Really convenience! Great staff there! Bathroom is clean and you can lock the door when you take the shower, the room is big enough, you can find a toilet inside your room. Mine is a private room for three, nice place, will come back to stay again!!!!

The location is perfect. It takes not more than 5 mins from train station to hotel.It is easy to do the connection. Surrounding by nice, clean and cheap restaurant. The place itself is clean and quiet. Staff is really helpful and always there in the place. Next time I will stay at this place again for sure!

Excellent location near Tennoji Station and very cheap


Stayed one night in a twin room with private toilet/shared bathroom - The room was huge and the guy on reception was really helpful and friendly. The place was pretty grotty and run down though, and the air conditioner in our room leaked all night (we had to put the bin under it after mopping up the puddles). In two weeks in Japan this was by far the worst place we stayed, but I think that's more a testament to how good most guesthouses/hostels in Japan are usually.
