Outstanding, an exemplary hostel! Great facilities which make it very comfortable. Sociable, but not in your face. Clean and spacious, and even stylish! I particularly appreciated the very clear direction they sent (good location and access to transport, but hidden away so directions cxan ve vital!). They made email contact just after booking and again a few days before mt stay, which i found friendly and professional at the same time. Keep it up guys! :)

Very close to the metro station. Located in a quiet block where local people live around too. Had a good time in Osaka, especially with the Guesthouse U-En.

Our room was Japanese style,so we have to sleep in a futon! For one nigth could be a funny option, but it'snt very comfortable. The room its not to big. At the entrance you can hit your head with the main door, even if your heigth is 1.60 cm. They don't warn about that, it could be dangerous. There aren't lockers,at least we didn't see anyone.

All of the hostel accommodation I've had in Japan has been wonderful but Guesthouse U-en was, hands down, the best! The staff are friendly and very helpful, the facilities were pristine, the price was great, as was the location and it was quiet. Everyone was very considerate of noise levels. If you want a party hostel, this is not the place for you. Thank you Guesthouse U-en for making our stay in Osaka comfortable and pleasant. :)

The directions we got to the hostel were excellent, and the staff was very helpful with helping us with our luggage and finding our way around Osaka. The location was good, there were a lot of good restaurants just a short walking distance from the hostel and we got good recommendations from the staff. The rooms were cozy, and the common room was very nice. The showers and toilet were very clean and in good condition. I really liked the old timey Japanese atmosphere, would recommend this place.

Great hostel! I loved the little sleeping pod! Practically a private room at dorm prices. Great facilities and staff. Close to lots of nice restaurants and the subway. What more could you ask for?

I was there with 2 female friends. We booked a triple room 'Kaede'. The room is big enough to accommodate three of us and our 3 medium-large bags. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Brst thing is free tea and coffee is provided so you can save a lot of money on drinks. As for drinking water, there's free filtered water. The only let down is, since we stayed for 6 nights in a row, the room got a little dust here and there towards the end. (There might be a vacuum for lend;we didnt asked.)

We were assigned to a room without windows and near to the kitchen. It is noisy when you want to sleep early for tomorrow trip. It should be mentioned in the description. Different from other hostels, using credit card charges us 3% more. It should be mentioned in the description.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that walls or paper doors are not sound-proof enough because of the traditional Japanese townhouse, that’s why we provide free earplugs in all rooms. Actually we've mentioned of our walls&paper doors and 3% processing fee of credit card. Please contact us directly at any time if you need any help or questions, we always try to do our best for guests. Hope to see you again. Guesthouse U-En crew

Close to the airport but a little further away from the hustle and bustle of Dontobori and Namba area, Staff were friendly and helpful and more than willing to help with any queries. Be sure to rent a bicycle for 500 yen, by far the most effective mode of transport in Osaka and being allowed to cycle on pavements also make it very safe.
