To any women staying here, this is not the best area sometimes, especially at night. If you are concerned about safety there is a women's-only floor and women's-only shower on the third floor. Use the safe lockers outside your room if you are concerned about personal belongings. If you don't speak Japanese there are guides in English, and the staff can speak very basic English most of the time.

The hotel just few minute walking from shin- imamiya station. Few minutes walking to tsutenkaku and zoo. Go to dotonbori just take two more station to Jr namba station . 4 mix dorm in big room with cheapest price. Free green tea , coffee, facial cotton, facial cleanser and facial essence. Big TV and 5 computer in common area. Only problem is there only 3 shower room, long queue if you want to take shower.

Was a lot better than I was expecting. Right next to the subway which made life a lot easier. Can't complain about the price, very cheap compared to other places in different areas. Has everything you'll need, usually at no extra charge.

I found the overall atmosphere of the hostel to be uncomfortable and unwelcoming, it looked to dingy and dirty, there were not enough bathrooms or showers to accommodate a nine floor building.

If you are a backpacker, it's a really nice place to stay! They provide towels, shampoo, body wash, those things that hadn't be provided in most hostel! The place is good because it's close to the railway station to Osaka and the airport. The money value is good but I find some place even more cheaper nearby. The reason why it's so cheap is the area is not a really safe area, but it's Japan, it won't be too dangerous.

I don't mind that the showers were on the first floor, but two for a whole building is unacceptable. The wifi was reliable though and the staff did their best. This isn't a hostel really though. Also the surrounding area was basically a dead zone.

Good location, very close to subway station. Single room is very good and worth for what you pay. Only one drawback is only 3 private available on first floor for whole hotel and public is on the first floor which is not convenient (public bath also damaged and not available during my stay.)

Hotel Chuo is easy to get to and a great budget hotel. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and it is easy to find from either the Dobutsuenme or Tennoji stations. The only downfall is the showers being on the bottom floor, a bit of a drag if you're staying on the ninth floor. However of you stay on the all girls floor there is a clean, warm shower waiting just for you!

This was one of my favorite hostels. It's not frilly, and there isn't quite the community atmosphere I've experienced elsewhere, but they make up for it. First, when we didn't know that we'd make the last bus/train from Kansai, they said they wouldn't charge for the room if we couldn't make it our first night. (Biiiig plus!) Then, they were very helpful any time we asked advice. Finally, they sell Spa World tickets at a discount (and let us returned them after no-tattoo rule). Convenient locale.

Only three showers for 9 floors of guests. Poor location, but right near a subway station, so I guess that doesn't really matter. Cheapest alternative in Osaka, so good value for money. Free, fast internet.

Good location, just above the subway station. Walking distance to Tennouji (new shopping mall), Tsutenkaku, zoo. The building is old, but clean enough. Tourists and some locals stay.

駅から近いという面では良かったですが如何せん西成区に位置しているので街の雰囲気がかなり異様でした。 ホステルも私が着いた時には身なりが綺麗な人ばかりが利用しているわけではなく、大浴場は使いたくないなと感じました。
