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


For the price it was clean, convenient and friendly. Maybe not the best location for a woman travelling alone as the area is quirt at night and off the main road, but in a pair or more this place is a great budget choice! Staff were nice and the bedding and room were both clean. The bathrooms and toilets are all shared, so be aware if you aren't comfortable bathing with others. I enjoyed the stay and the price!

Great value for money, small single rooms but common room, and everything you could think of was provided. The area is a bit dodgy but the walk from the station (subway and JR) is very short. Great to reach Kansai airport too.


This place is excellent value for money!! It almost felt like I was staying here for free with all the services & facilities they provided. The area has a pretty dull nightlife (small karaoke & eatery joints, nothing fancy), limited places to eat during late night, but there's a Family Mart & subway station nearby which is good. I would definitely stay here again. Not many Westerners stay here though, so if you plan to meet Europeans, Strayans or whatever to party with. Maybe not the best place.


Hostel not located on main street but easy to find; very close to subway and train stations. Staff was helpful, facilities clean. Also, beds were quite comfortable.


Great location, just an 8-minute walk from Shin-imamiya station, which is very accessible to every major attraction in Osaka. The rooms are well-maintained and complete with amenities, even your own TV and hangers. The toilet stalls in the bathrooms are small though and there are only 2 sinks, which are already shared by everyone on the floor (mixed male and female). I liked the fact that they had an onsen inside the hotel for free. Good Japanese experience!


Yah what can i expect from that cost... The room full of dust,so i have to clean the table and tatami with wet tissue. The sharing bathroom is not clean as the staff cleans it only at night and other customer didn't maintain cleanliness after using it.What make me choose this hotel was because the location, which only a minute walk from train station and bus stop.


Very cheap for the hotel this good! Everything was perfect except the room was a littke smelly and the onsen only opens for men until10pm, so we never get a chance to use it cuz we always arrive late.


Toilet is dirty.


the room so small but it's ok for value hotel, staff so amaizing, very help full can explain anything around osaka with english, the hostel facilities are provided the "onsen" that's a differentiate with other hotels, if i go to osaka again i will take this hotel again, feel like homy


Booked 5 nights but only stayed 2. Non-smoking room doesn't guarantee a smoke-free stay as I could constantly smell cigarette smoke from the hall way and my neighbours. The single room I had was the smallest I've ever had in Japan out of the 20 hotels I have stayed at. Just enough room for a single bed and somewhere to put your bag. The bed was poor. Also, only 3 showers for the entire hotel, which means you may need to line up in the morning for a shower.


Great location as its very close to the subway,only about 2mins to access there.But bathroom and toilet is dirty, i dont want to have my shower in it.... and i didnt want to use the toilet also...... i dont think i will stay here again as my room style is thr japanesse one ,and the tatami was very smelly......and i cant keep my window open when im out for shopping or sightseeing to keep away that smell as im afraid someone will broke in from the window.....not recommended .....


Not only for backpacker but local businessman also stay here.


Free towels, green tea. I have tried a few more places and learned to appreciate mikado hotel. There are a few cheaper places in a walking distance, but mikado hotel feels like home.

Staffs were amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It was my first experience with tatami and futton, and i regret nothing ! The futton was soft and cozy, just like the bed in my home, Although i had to wait for my turn to take bath, the facility were good and it really gave me a feeling of my own house ! I'd really want to live in your hotel again !

friendly staff, kitchen and living room together in small area, good place to stay here again


Location was great, showers were clean, toilets/washroom could do with an upgrade.


Not the nicest area or best hotel, but definitely good value for money.


friendly staff, good value for money with good facility.
