The staff are friendly and helpful. It's really close to the metro and JR stations and there's plenty of food places and karaoke bars within a 10 min walk. There's only two toilets per floor and 3 showers for the entire building! Definitely let the place down a lot.

I was very safisfied by your staffs, who were really kind and friendly. I would gladly stay at your hotel again when I visit Osaka again. Thank you for your kindness for three days of my stay. It made my trip much more happier and comfortable.

I literally felt like I was living in a Junkies room

The price was reasonable and the single room was neat. However, the shower room seemed a little messy.

Near to the zoo and very close to the subway. The building is quite old. The rooms are small but clean. It is really nice to get a private room at this price. There are only 3 showers for the entire building so it may get difficult during busy season. there is a communal bath available which switches between male and female access throughout the day. Overall no problems. WiFi signal is strong on the 8th floor (ladies only floor).

Floor tiles in bathroom were filthy & leaking sink. No room service for the 6 days we were there.. First dryer we tried didn't work. No refund. Free tea & coffee & use of kitchen was good. Handy to train station & walk to viewing tower & zoo. Hot spa & sauna would be good but have to be nude so didn't use it.

Very good services and price, also very close from the center of Osaka (just 2 subway stop). I would definitely recommend it.

We would definitely stay in this place again. The staff were very helpful and communication was easy. The rooms were clean and reasonably sized for the price. Having a proper sentou (spa) on the ground floor was a major plus after a long day of walking around. The most important thing for us was that there was no curfew. This is the best hostel that we have stayed at in the Minami (south half of Osaka) area.

I thought the place was fine. As others have said, it's a bit of an uncomfortable experience to have a man start using urinal next to the sink you're brushing your teeth at, but I get the feeling the building was originally men only. The hallway reeked, but the bedroom was fine and clean. Close to the station- go into the covered arcade next to that brick coffee shop outside Exit 2 and take the first right. It's on that street on the right side.

We had a nice stay. I really appreciate the staff working with me to get the proper room arrangement

This hotel is cheap and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The kitchen was clean and tidy. However, the rooms and the toilet and shower areas are really unclean. Also the only showers are on the bottom floor (the building has at least 7 floors!)

My stay was perfect. The staff Is friendly and very helpful. The location was great for what we wanted to do. very close to subway and JR. station. The spa was a bonus.

All in all it was a good room, totally sufficient, the staff at the lobby was friendly and helpful too. What I didn't like was the overall smell of cold tobacco in the room, the sheets etc. That aside, it was good for one night, vending machines, laundry and all. Close to supermarkets, public transportation and near to a pretty cool and fun area with lots of restaurants.

Small room, private, you sleep on a cushion on the floor, but wasn't bad, have your own tv and mini-fridge, have your own heater and is close to subway and 24 hour supermarket. Wifi is good, no problems in the neighborhood, plenty safe. Showers were good and I din't have any problem with wait times, decent cooking area in kitchen. Good place for quiet time and relaxing. There are cheaper places, but you're going to get what you pay for in this area.

It is what it is, and it's not a 5 star luxury hotel. The neighbourhood might not be for everyone, and you're not likely to spend two weeks there, but it's also VERY cheap. The sheets were clean, the bed was comfortable enough, the place was relatively secure given that this is a fairly safe country (just keep in mind your luggage may not fit in their lockers), they have a sauna, and the place is close to Tennoji and Namba. For less than 2000 yen a night, it's a steal.

Decent sized single room, comfy futon with enough blankets, friendly and helpful staff with decent English communication.

Very friendly staff. Facilities are pretty good. Could be a bit more clean, but for that money it's very good. Convenient for backpackers who like to have a single room.
