Very "homey", this place is easily missed and could probably use a bright coloured sign that sticks out from the wall. When we first entered the place the reception area it seemed a little messy so we weren't too sure what we got ourselves into however it turned out to be a GREAT stay. The location isn't the best but everything is easily accessible since it's so close to JR station. Defineitely a "don't judge a book by its cover" moment. Good host, enough English!


Very nice staff, and the room is quite spacious and traditional. Nice value for money!


good value for washing mashine and dryer, great big kitchen, nice balcony, 5 minutes-walk to supermarket and jr station, free dvd's with english subtitles, free use of laptop, great aircondition, fantastic living room, spacious hostel, quiet


This place was alright for a brief stay. In the Tennoji area had a couple of restaurants refuse me service because I don't speak Japanese, even the place that said "English menu"!


I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. Very clean and friendly staff! Would go back again.

The numbers of shower room and toilet are quite few. (1 shower room & 1 toilet).


Good hostel but kind of far away from downtown. The facilities are nice, the bedroom are traditionnal japanese bedroom with tatami bed, which is nice.


It took me almost 20 minutes to find this hostel . It is just around the corner and it is very easy to miss it. it


Its a very good hostel for girl who travels alone. The staff are very nice and helpful. well-equipped facilities and very hygienic! will go again next time! One thing I think the staff shld consider is arrange curtain for each bunk bed to ensure privacy


It's very close to the Tannoji train station. Which is very good. And the hostel itself is very nice. Will stay there again probably

I have been to more than 20 countries and staying in many hostels, and I have NEVER experienced a hostel who don't provide any blanket or covers in an air-conditioned room! Most of us just cover ourselves with our wet shower towel. Old slippers with pilling


I is okey to stay there fore one day but nothing more. The staffs english skills are very limited. No atmosphere. No very central in osaka.


Friendly owner and good facilities, but zero atmosphere! The hostel felt empty, the people who were there did not talk and the common room was always empty Also quite dusty in the bathrooms


The hostel was fine but where were the receptionists?! The receptionists were NEVER on reception. If I needed anything or wanted to ask a question I couldn't. Found them on the top floor which is apparently private but I didn't know. I was asked to leave the 'private floor' but what I want to know is how they expect guests to find them if they are on the private floor? Apart from that the hostel is fine.


Nice staff


Had the private room upstairs and the hostel was pretty empty so kinda had the floor to ourselves. Good location just not many people there at the time.


only stayed for one night, cause it's located so close to Tennoji station. the lady was a bit confused but very kind!^^ all the people I met were very nice and it felt like being in a home.


different t style beds to most dorms, they didn't know I had booked when I walked through the door and were a bit rude, as a hostal its OK but would look elsewhere if I was to go to Osaka again. no one about ever to ask info


Good location. Near Train station.


The guesthouse looked particularly eerie at night when we checked in, and it was worrying when the reception did not answer our doorbell calls for almost 5 minutes. There are not many facilities at the hostel, we had to share one single bathroom (one for each gender) for the whole floor. The good thing about this accommodation was that it is very close to Tennoji station, making it convenient to travel around, and also to reach the Kansai airport with its direct train.
