It's very cheap but you get what you pay for. Good if you need the bare minimum to crash for a night. All of the stalls in our floor's bathroom were cringe-worthy. Air conditioning was a nice touch on a very hot day.


Value is amazing for a single room. Japanese-style means it's a mat on the floor which is fine. Location isn't really close to anything but a half hour walk will get you to the main area which is easily done at night. Definitely recommend this place.


Great value, clean, friendly staff, located close to a metro station. Highly recommend for budget travellers in Osaka. (Not to mention Mikado provides super fast wifi and free towels etc plus bicycles are lent for free.)


This place is a great value. Check in was easy and I came late at night from the airport. The amenities were equal in many ways to expensive places I stayed at. I personally had no problems getting to shower (early in the morning). Plus lockers with keys provided were great.


nice place, comfy and well located ; i will come back!


Showers on first floor so that was a little bit inconvenient and the sheets did not fit the bed. Location was good and liked that there were computers and a kitchen. Location very close to station and attractions


Clean,friendly and handy

The hotel was located near an interesting area, the Shinsekai, and it's abundance of kutsi kushikatsu. Close to the MRT station as well.


It is a good location to stay. Short walking distance to JR station and it is within the Osaka JR loop. Therefore easy to move around. Go for western style bed, for those who are not sure how Japanese style bed look like or feel. Will stay here again if visit Osaka in the future.


Good location. 2 stops away from Namba. Hostel price for a private room. Free use of computer and towel. However, it's very inconvenient to have only one shared shower room in the hotel. Good for single-night stay only.


Hotel Mikado is so good at service and located in an quite area, so it's recommended to all the travellers, no matter how many time have you been to Osaka.


It is in a pretty dodgy area of Osaka, but for the price it is an excellent hostel. Friendly helpful staff, clean facilities.


Great English speaking staff and good quality for a good price.


Onsen! also cheap and near Tsutenkaku asubway and Jr!what else do you need?


The hotel is situated a few min away from the subway. Very convenient to access. The staff were very helpful


Cheap stay but the shared bathrooms were not up to the normal standard of Japanese cleanliness we had come to expect of the places we stayed. Friendly and helpful staff though.


The shower facilities are only on the first floor, however this does also include a public bath with different assigned times for men and women. It's a good, cheap place to stay, near the station and they even provide you with slippers and a bath robe. The shared toilets are interesting...you have to walk past the urinals to reach the toilets, but there is a female only bathroom on the 8th floor.


Very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Nice clean room. Great place to stay.


Great location, helpful staff. Compact clean room. The wifi signal on the floor wasn't good, need to come down to use it.


I will definitely stay in this hostel again. Its clean, good englsih speacking staff, a minute walk from dobutsuenmae station, near tenoji park, family mart, and dining night life areas. Free bike rental, wifi, bath robe, towels, shampoo, body wash, japanese bath, sauna and jacuzi, blanket, hair blower. Super value for money. I will definitely stay here again.
