Convient location. It's a hotel with few hostel rooms so facility was also great. Me and my friend had the whole room for 6 for ourselves.


Great stay. Hotel staff was very helpful. Only an hour away by train from Kyoto.

Basic. The beds had curtains which were nice. And the shower was amazing. The dorm itself was like a living room with a TV fridge and a table for stuff. Nothing spectacular. The area is really "working class" so expect to find some local osakans running around. The resturants close by are really local and small. Interesting aspect of Osaka.


Staff were really friendly and accommodating. Only a short train ride to Dotonbori. Very clean and nicely presented room. Bed was super comfy. Highly Recommend.


It was very clean. A big minus is no reading lamps or security lockers in dormitory. Staff was great! I slept in because of jet lag and was late for check-out about an hour. I thought I should pay extra, but staff told me I don't have to. That was nice. Also free coffee in the lobby and computers that actually worked quite well.


Overall the hotel was great. Easy to find, close to everything and they go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable.


Location was close to Nipponbashi which was excellent but it is a hotel so there is little in the way of atmosphere.


It`s a hotel called hostel. Very good bath and facilities.


Hotel that has two dorm rooms. Great security and facilities. Nobody was in my dorm room the two nights I stayed. Ask for the discount card at front desk - will get 10% off at familymart, 100 yen shop and a 24hr diner.


It's a great place to stay if you want some quiet and space. It's spacious, unless you sleep on the top bunk where clearly it's not made for the average person. But there are a lot better places near by that allow the same for less and involve more socializing.
