This is an ideal place for a bed and a shower, that's about it. There was a common room, but most of the people were too busy to congregate. Owners were nice enough, can help with basic area information and requests. This place is a bit far afield from the city center, but it's close proximity (less than 20 meters) from a subway station on the main line makes it a relatively good place to base a trip to Osaka.

The staff was very accommodating, allowing us a super late check in after we had a late flight (that also got delayed!). They are very willing to provide you with directions to anywhere in the city, and to help you get to other destinations like Kyoto and Nara. There's a good common room on the top floor with a nice social atmosphere. The hostel is also right outside of a subway station that's right in the downtown area. Highly recommended.

Great lounge with free food and hard liquor. Nice owner. However, he doesn't have a staff and he sometimes bolts for home, leaving the front desk unmanned. Nice dude though

A good place to stay in Osaka. I was here with a friend and we both liked it. The owner is a really nice person and will do all he can to help you. Location within 15 walk of popular nightlife area. The atmosphere was lacking, I guess because we are in middle winter but we didn't see anyone in common room or meet other travelers

The hotel is good access to the subway. I appreciated the clean and beautiful room, , and the friendly hospitality by your staff. I would like to go back there again. I look forward to staying at your hotel again. Thank you very much for all your kindness and hospitality extended to me.

Nice place, good access to the subway. Bit awkward with the shower being on the ground floor but that was fine really. The host was really nice and helpful when a couple of friends needed to stay but did to have a booking and would get in after check in. It was fine for me to let them in and they paid the next morning!

Hostel situated right beside the subway exit with an escalator! Also has shops like kura sushi, yoshinoya, ramen and shabushabu shops within 5 mins walk, all marked out on a map at the reception. Staff was really friendly and helpful too!

Showers on the ground floor make it a very cold walk. Common room on the top floor has a lack of power outlets. It's a small hostel and very drafty. There are better hostels out there, but this one was fine. Good location. Take a photo with your phone of the map on the counter of the front desk.

newly opened hostel with awesome facilities. 10min walking distance from nanba area. has a nice chillout space on the top floor, cozy bed with private locker. but the owner didn't speak good English so i couldn't get much information but he was really helping and kind.

Daikoku is my favorite hostel in Osaka. The owner is very kind and helpful. He's very relaxed about check out time, and it's located one subway stop away from Namba, so entertainment is easy to find.

Located only a minute from the station. Extremely clean - a welcome sight compared to some hostels ! Helpful staff. Limited facilities, small hostel. But pleasant and more than adequate for a short stay.

Not suitable if you have luggages as very steep ladder. Location is very strategic though, near mrt station and just one stop to namba
