Everything was great, but the toilets were pretty gross. Its kinda what you expect when you share bathrooms with everyone on your whole floor. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the hostel is next to 2 stations, Shinimamiya and Dobutseunmae so its very easy to get around!


Overall of hostel is very good but some facility was broke such as locker and refrigerator on my room need to be fix.

This hotel is undergoing refurbishment and I think post-refurbishment, this is a great place to stay. Right now - is OK to crash for a night, not for few days.


Unfortunately, for facilities, the hotel lobby was going through a renovation so things were cramped, especially as most facilities were on the ground floor and the kitchens / lounges are part of the lobby! The room stinked of smoke (non-smoking bedrooms would be nice) but had good facilities (TV, fridge, air con). The showers were OK. Location is good: a little bit dodgy for Osaka, but safe compared to anywhere else in the world, and close to the train station to the airport.


Never again


It was satisfactory to me. Clean room and everything was all right. Location also good. From Namba it taskes a just about 3-4min. If i have a chance to off to Osaka i'd love to stay here again.


Great location and very cheap


Warm welcome and good serviced.

Very kind staffs but cleanliness... I stayed on 7th floow which is for female only. Maybe smoking was allowed on my floor. I still could smell the smoke in m room and even I found many hairs on my blanket and pillow... shower room was ONLY 2 in this whole building and even for both female and male. You better know this in advance before use.

Dirty and dodgy


somr people were worried about the location since it is situated in the not rich area. but if your group is big enough or guys only., definetely worth it.
