What can I add that hasn't been said many times before about CaminoRo? The hosts are exceptionally nice and helpful regarding what to see and do in Kyoto, and how to get there. The hostel has a very quiet, at-home atmosphere, the rooms are nice, and everything is taken care of. The only drawback one might see is the location, which is a few subway stops north of Kyotos centers. To me however, the lively and pleasant neighborhood was an added bonus. Thank you for the nice stay!

Staff was very helpful. Koji really invites you into his house. The neighborhood is away from your typical tourist areas, but I appreciated it for a couple of reasons: it gives a nice view of Japanese markets and people outside of those busy areas and the shopping was cheap, good, and varied.
Absolutely love this place. If you don't like dealing with stairs, then this place is not for you. I had no problems with that and actually no problem with anything. Location's excellent. The guesthouse itself is very, very comfortable, and the owners are very helpful. I'll definitely come by again if I'm in town :D
The owner has been very helpful in providing us useful information. specially during our stay at this guesthouse, there was a typhoon in Osaka, he has inform us the the latest update as to when Osaka will be affected. Thank you very much, Me & my family enjoyed our stay at Caminoro Guesthouse.
My friend and I stayed in the Modern Japanese room for 3 nights while we visited USJ. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was very nice and informative- they kept us up-to-date on news about the typhoon and closures that occurred while we were there. We never had to wait for the showers. Great stay!
Very friendly hosts Koji and Taneaka who spoke fluent English. Very cozy and clean place. Location was good as it was walking distance to the two metro stations Mikuni and Higashi-Mikuni. Lots of food places and convenience stores in the vicinity. Great value for backpackers or just for people who wanted to stretch their dollar.
Wonderful surprise that the owner spoke perfect English, made things a lot easier for us. He was very friendly and inviting and it was a shame we only stayed the one night. Definitely recommend this place if you're in Osaka!
It is a very lovely guesthous! Everything is good! It locates in a local living area, which is quite and lovely, also easy to access to the city center! The couple who own the house are so nice! Lots of details of the house facitilies show their care about all guests. I got a email about how to access the house before my trip and it was helpful! Thank you very much for the Caminoro!! I will stay again when I travel back to Osaka!
Incredible hostel!!! Admitingly it was difficult to find, but it was such a great hostel. The owners are so helpful and friendly and really go the extra mile. Our room was spacious and clean.
Really quiet family-run place. Not near anything special but in that way an authentic Japanese experience. I didn't like that the women's bathroom was all the way in the basement, but everything was clean and fine. We had a tatami room- small and cramped but that's like everywhere in Osaka. Very quiet atmosphere.
If you want to spend some time away from the hectic busy places in downtown Osaka, you have found your place! Caminoro is situated in a normal neighbourhood, with lost of family run shops and restaurants around. The guesthouse does feel like home and the lovely family runing it (Koji & Taeko) will make you feel so welcomed! + going to the centre is very convenient, so you're sure not to miss out on the main sites either.

I enjoyed my stay here, just as I had enjoyed my first stay.
The owners are super kind and helpful if you need anything. The walk to the main train station line is around 15 min walk, but besides that it is very easy to get around. The place is clean and its nice that there is a kitchen area for us to cook. We used it several of times. Overall I would recommend this guesthouse to others!

Very very pleasant experience in Osaka. I love this interesting hostel. The living room and kitchen are nice and tidy, you could feel the beauty of zen. I am also surprised by the security system. The only disadvantage is that it 's a little far away from the metro station, and there is no elevator or lift in the metro station 东三国站. Still love this place. Hope I could come back one day! Very grateful to Koji and his wife.
Amazing part of town with really good connections with the subway line and station. Super helpful and friendly owners! First class place!
The staff here made the whole experience. You could ask them a question and they went out of their way to help you. Lovely common area. Would definitely return here.
Located relatively close to the city center on an atmospheric roofed shopping street, clean rooms, good facilities, the family running the guesthouse is really nice and helpful, they provide you with all the necessary information for your trip.
We had a lovely stay here. Everyone is very friendly and the hostel is clean and comfortable.
I loved everything about Caminoro, except that I could only spend one night there. It is located in a covered shopping street in a part of town that isn't very busy. I really liked staying there because you could see more of what normal day to day live in Osaka is like. The staff were so very nice. They even gave me a wonderful present because it was my birthday. The hostel itself was very clean, and had great facilities. I really liked the kitchen wall. Everything was great!
I only booked 3 nights through hostelworld.com, but I enjoyed my stay so much, I ended up staying a total of 6 nights! :) The hostel is a lovely small-medium sized accommodation, run by a family of 3! Everyday, the whole hostel is cleaned inside and out by the hosts, and it is impeccably clean! Curtains are provided for all the beds, guests have their own fridge, and a large common area! Being 3 stops away from Umeda station makes it an excellent location!
