The only problems we had with this hostel were the noise--some other guests arrived very late/left very early, and they spoke loudly right outside our window.


Very nice and clean hostel, 2 blocks away from Tennoji Station wich everybody knows and from there you can go anywhere in Japan. 100% recomended.


it is located near Tenoji Station, and is very quiet. I really had a nice time there and made friends with people from other countries.

I stayed here for 2 nights. It's great location (near tennoji station) and value for your money.


Very clean with everything you could need such as microwave, rental bikes, laundry, etc.


We stayed in the traditional room, it was very nice, a good experience! everythings clean, all you need for a few nights -> well organized hostel perfect for young people/backpackers and so on


good option to stay.


Thank you so much for guiding me the way to airport. Everything is execellent, keep up the good work!!!


Clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is right next to Tennoji station. This was my second time staying here, still a great place.


Well located hostel near Tennoji train station. Friendly owner and comfortable dorm room.


Quiet, characterful hostel in an interesting neighbourhood you might otherwise miss. It is laid out on ryokan lines with tatami mats, sliding doors, futons and paper screens and is a short walk from Tennoji station which is on the Osaka loop line and directly connected to most places you will want to go. The owner is a friendly guy; there is free coffee, wifi everywhere and washing facilities which can be used without coins and paid for later


Awesome stay. I would stay again :)


Guesthouse Tennoji was great - the building overall and especially the rooms were very clean and surprisingly spacious. Even in a shared room, you had a lot of room to yourself.


Instructions to the location is very accurate. Place is very clean.


The hostel in a great location, very close to JR, shops and restaurants. The room was a bit small but I was there in off peak season so there was no issue for me. Cannot think of any reasons not to recommend it.


Nice hostel, very quiet when I was there! But has everything you need.


The guesthouse was very clean and well maintained, the bedding was quite comfortable. The location seemed to be good it was close to Tennoji Station making it less than a 10 minute ride away from Namba, Shinshaibashi. One thing to keep in mind is that their reception closes at 10pm, if you plan to arrive late you should look for alternative options.


nice hostel.good location.warm rooms.all i wanted:)


The owner cum manager, Mr Hwang was most accomodating and let us stay in the tatami room which was very spacious and evoked the feeling of staying in a Japanese ryokan.


Really nice hostel, Mr Hwang is very friendly and nice. Guesthouse Tennoji was impeccably clean, very spacious and one of the most comfortable hostels I've stayed in. Would definitely stay here again if I visit Osaka in the future!
