Very bare-bones place but it is incredibly cheap as well. Just a 3 minute subway ride to Namba station for going out at night.

Aizuya Inn has everything you need for a humble Japanese holiday. All I need is tatami mats and a futon, which Aizuya had :^). There's also a kitchen and hire bikes which is great. I do prefer going to the Sento for bathing though. The best part about Aizuya is the beautiful decorations - especially in the toilets, and I also loved that you could go out on the top floor roof balcony. I'd stay there again for sure :^)

Great little Japanese style room with air con and TV which was great value for the price. Hostel is in a quiet residential which is nice, but not much around however the train station is only a short walk away.

I love japanese style bedroom

After reading all the negative feedback I more or less dreaded the day of my arrival at Kaga, but I actually feel good about it. There was only one staff member whose English was reasonably decent and he wasn't afraid to make mistakes. He usually works during the day time and he was very helpful to me. The rooms were small but for a single room you cannot nag, with a/c, tv and fridge. Also a few footsteps to nankai railways station to commute between kansai airport, what more can you ask for?

Rooms are clean, shower is good even though it's only one in the entire building. There is a bathhouse you can use for free. But spend a few extra yen that you otherwise spend on the metro or train to stay closer to the city. But having your own room for a night can make the difference. Not a place to meet other travelers or people in general

For me, the best part (aside from the low price) was the ticket to the public baths nearby. The worst part was being across the hall from the bathroom, and awoken by drunks retching in there in the middle of the night (on several nights). Make no mistake -- this place is much more oriented to the essentially homeless Japanese middle-age man than to the traveler. Rather than an extended stay here, I found another property nearby.

This hotel is OK given the price. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. However, the atmosphere, in and outside of the hotel, is bleak. The rooms are ridiculously small and you can't watch TV or play music past 9pm. I was on the 5th floor and I had to walk down to the 1st floor to shower everyday. I also had problems with the shower's hot water, which would turn off for 3-5 minutes every now and then. The hotel is conveniently located, however. It's close to tennoji and namba.

The hotel was as advertised. Small, clean and inexpensive. Very close to the subway lines. A good place to stay for a couple of days.

The places is not bad, one of the cheapest in Osaka but nothing special.

Cheap hotel with good beds and possibility to visit a public bath for free. Location is 5 minutes from the station but you have to walk trough a street full of sleeping and walking homeless people. That scared me a little. Room did smell after green tea a little but that's no big deal.

This hotel is so weird, and a little creepy. The building is too old, and is not so welcoming atmosphere, but it was Ok after all, enough for spend the night in a average private room.
