Great place and the price is probably the cheapest in Japan. Cheap and tasty food nearby. Able to walk to tennoji if you need to and only 2 stops from namba.

I was upgraded from a dorm to a private room at no extra cost so my review is based on that. The room was small but cozy, the bed was comfortable, the WiFi was pretty good, there was a TV in the room, slippers, towels, a mini fridge... felt like a prince compared to some of the places I've stayed in China - for real! Location is OK, 10 minute subway and you're in Namba, where everything happens.

Best location next to subway and family mart. You can walk to namba and see around. The bed so comfy and value to stay. There is free onsen.

Very close to train station. Although, a clear direction description on booking confirmation would be handy! The room is quite spacious. The bed is somewhat comfy. It is soft but kind of springy so I woke up with sore back :( The female staff during check in spoke fluent english. Coin laundry on the ground floor : only one of them works (there are 2). Free coffee and tea on the ground floor. Good supply of kitchen utensils and small pots and pans.

The hostel is located near the Shin-Imamiya train station, which links multiple lines. There is also a subway station nearby. There is only 3 showers and 2 of them were broken when we visited but there is an onsen available. No locker was included but there are coin lockers available in the hallway. There was free coffee available

Hotel Chuo is in a good location as it's very close to a main train station which has direct lines to the airport and is also on the Osaka loop line which is helpful! The hotel was good value, the only downside being that we had to go all the way to the ground floor and walk through the lobby to take a shower (we were 9 floors up!). The public bath is a nice touch if your into that sort of thing although I can't personally comment on the cleanliness of it as I didn't go in.

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Chuo. My room was big enough and comfortable. The Hotel is very close to the subway and a JR line, and easy to get to the airport. Staff are very friendly and helpful with good English. There are plenty of cheap eats and a zoo / park nearby. To be fair its not the nicest area but the price reflects this, and I never felt unsafe. Try to get a front room or high floor if you are a light sleeper as the rear is basically on a train line.

I love this place! The only problem is the wifi doesn't go past the 6th floor

very cheap for single rooms

The free bike rental was awesome. The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff was great. Most didn't speak English very well but they were still helpful. The neighborhood is the cheap side of town but the trains will get you anywhere in the city in a flash. I highly recommend this place it was exceptional for the price.

Nice little place to stay, we stayed in a private twin western room, definitely a great option, super spacious room, good internet, toilet and sinks right outside of the room. However, it was pretty inconvenient to have to go down to the first floor to get a shower and a little embarrassing really coming out of the shower in your dressing gown and getting a lift back upstairs infront of people but if you're quick no problem. Good coffee and microwave on each floor too.

It was a good stay nothing outstanding but nothing bad either. The best thing in my opinion was that they had free bikes that you could use. The staff was friendly enough and they tried to help as much as possible.

Actually a pretty nice place but the only thing I didn't like was the fifth floor with no elevator and the kitchens were little small but besides that good place. nice. I would recommend it.

Not easy to communicate, only the female staff could talk with english, but they are all helpful.

Not the best hotel we stayed at in Japan, shared bathroom and fairly expensive for what it was.
