It is a very cheap hotel, and you can get a single for very cheap. That's it. That's the deal. It ain't the Ritz, but it is perfectly adequate.


1) The receptionist was nice. 2) There are separate public baths and toilets for men and women. 3) The room was comfy with a view of Tsutenkaku. 4) The free coffee available in the morning was good. 5) Overall, I've stayed in several budget hotels in this area, and this one is definitely among the best.


Not a very nice place-a somewhat rough looking hostel (more of a budget hotel, honestly) in probably the most rough looking part of Osaka. It is close to a subway station, though, so getting around isn't an issue.


Overall, this was a really solid place to stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean enough for the price. It's located in Shinsekai, next to a bunch of other hostels and cheap hotels, and the area has a really nice charm to it. Shinsekai gets a bad rap from Japanese people, but besides the larger than normal number of homeless people, it's a safe and fun area. Also, the women's bath area has its own key, that's only given to women, so +1 for security there.

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.
