Not actually a hostel. It is a hotel used by mostly middle-aged Japanese men. Dont stay there if you dont like people smoking in the lobby. Was fine for me though. Small rooms but secure and good value for money (Japanese futon;no bed). Not far if you want to take the subway to the 'fun' places like Shinsaibashi, Namba, and Minami. JR line is also close if you have a JR Pass. Took a second and got turned around finding the hotel at first, but not more than 5 minutes from the station by foot.


The wifi sucks and the staff arent that helpful

I loved my stay at this hostel, the rooms are big enough for baggage and a sleep with fridge, tatami and cable TV. Internet was good enough for google maps and email. The small heated bath and wash room was a nice touch with free access to a local public bath around the corner. Staff were helpful, professional and spoke English well. Shin-Imamiya is a rustic and intimidating location. As one who has stayed in the area a few times the area is amazing and people outgoing and friendly.


Good location in downtown Osaka, with easy commute to the JR station and Shin-Osaka. However, a slightly dodgy area (compared to the rest of the city), especially if a lone female traveler. Having said that, it was a great value for money and the kitchen/bathroom facilities were more than adequate. You also get a private room, which sets it apart from many other Japanese hostels/guesthouses.


This is a business hotel so don'aspect to meet friend as an hostel. Is located with 15 minutes from a big mall and 30 mins walking to main walking street. 5 minutes from subway and train from and to airport. The staff welcome you well they are polite and nice. Very clean and i could see they care about it. Wifi could be improved and also the dryer machine.


The hostel itself was adequate 'what you pay is what you get'. Let me keep this straight to the point for both Pros and cons du Pros: - inexpensive and good for the budget - walking distance to subway stations; - get your own room -Wifi connection was good - 6th floor female bathroom was super clean and nice Cons - room is small - rooms are extremely smelly - I got a few bed bug bites - No kitchen - lack of English speaker receptionist - metal door makes it look like a prison cell


Not the best! I emailed the place beforehand asking for non smoking rooms and both rooms smelt extremely of smoke! One of the rooms also have a strong smell of wet shoes. You were unable to sleep in this room because of the smell. I did try to get my room changed and the first night left on an air freshener, I was told I couldn't change rooms and the air freshener didn't work so we both had to stay in the one room. Which was small for 2 people.
