although it is cheap and as far as the room goes you get more than what you pay for, but the room smelled heavily of cigarettes, it's a bad neighbourhood and I had to be back in my room before dark or I'd be harassed by creepy old men on the street. this would probably be not so bad if you were in a big group but I was visiting alone. there's a lot of homeless people and garbage in the streets. one good thing is that (by train) its close to all the major attractions.
The location is near to 新今宮 JR station. There are some people without house around the place. They are not dangerous to travelers, but you also have to take care and walk on the big street at night. There are also local people live in the hotel. Some people rent a room here for months, but it is okay for the safety cause there will be a management at the 1st floor. However, I like a room like this one, simple and with anything, which I often see in the Japan TV show, just feel I am like a local.
Not too bad for the price, but not a great place for a backpacker. Staff had trouble with English and are not very helpful. Very poor atmosphere and not in a nice area at all.
Well, you get what you pay for. Good place to stay if you are on low budget but don't expect anything special.
Nice compact tatami room.....there's female only floor which was great and clean.
Very nice and helpful staff, good place to stay if you have limited budget.
