Hotel Chuo was exactly as it was described. Certainly not a party hostel, but the the location is good and the price is cheap!

The shared room also had a shared bathroom, but more importantly the layout of the 9th floor toilet meant you have to go through the mens toilet to get to the womens toilet which is a bit inconvenient as it means only one can be used at once. It was also quite unpleasant. The room could've done with some chairs though.

Not much of an atmosphere. Kind of boring and not great to hang out it in . Good price if you just need to spend 1 night

Depends on what are you looking for. I would only go back again if I´m staying in the city for one night. The location is quite good although the neighborhood is not very attractive. Bathrooms and showers are always clean. The free rental bike result us very helpfull. The atmosphere feels a bit depressive.

The hostel is mostly ruined by horrible staff. Some of the staff do not show any interest or enthusiasm and would not let a friend up to a room after we checked out from different rooms. It was so strict to the point that the male staff went into the female bath to kick my friend out as it was 10am. Would not stay here ever again and would not recommend it to anyone who feels customer service is critical for an enjoyable stay.

The whole hostel felt more like a business hotel, rather than a hostel. Was very hard to get in contact with others! Shower rooms are only on one floor, while dorm room was on the 9th floor (far to go). No free breakfast, only coffee and tea.

Unpleasant environment, people easy come and easy go because there is public onsen, the room is too old, some employee very helpful when we need to delivered our luggage, but the hotel near from Shin-Imamiya Station

Very cheap priced comfortable beds. Convenient stores all around. They too sells bread at the counter if you are too tired to go out. Coffee and tea are always available for free. Only that there are 3 bathrooms with 3 types of mixer. Difficult to tune the correct temperature. Morning atmosphere is wonderful with the reception (forgot his name). Will stay there again and highly recommended.

Big room for 6 person stay. Bed was clean and cozy. They have rice cooker which is a plus! Nice staff especially the morning shift senior staff which enlighten the dull morning atmosphere at the lobby cum dining cum internet room. Very cheap and will come again definitely.

As budget accommodation go this is ok, got a single room for the price of a shared room in Tokyo. There's is a 24 hour desk too. Wasn't sure about the area. Not loads here just spa world&zoo. stayed one night in a capsule hotel in shinsha.. something can't remember the exact name but preferred that area as there was more going on. Getting a single room is a plus but was still noisy as on one side of the building is a main road and on the other is a subway line so sleep wasn't easy

The common areas could do with a good cleaning, or maybe just get freshened up a bit, but I really liked my room and have no complaints about it. Will probably stay here again next time I'm in Osaka.

I really enjoyed this hostel. The location is simply perfect from the airport or to Nara. It's also really simple to find (right by a subway exit) which is great when you have a big backpack. They also let me leave my bag there 5 days for free and they have a very nice traditional bathroom with a giant shared tube that was a great surprise for me. The rooms went hallways are old and not very clean but you should definitely go to this hostel !
