The shadiest place I have been in Osaka, everything looked dirty and they seriously expected a whole six floors to take a shower in two bathrooms? The private room beds are okay, but the rooms smelled a bit. They lent out videos of movies but were all Japanese dubbed, and therefore a horrible decision on the hotel's part. There was one female staff that spoke English and was actually concerned and tried to help. The internet was only there for a little while and disappeared for the rest of stay.
This hostel was very bare-bones. Not much atmosphere. Bad smell in the building. The neighborhood was also not the greatest.
It's a very convenient place, is not located in the nicer place of Osaka but it's really close to the JR Shin-Imamiya train station of the Osaka Loop Line. Staff is nice, they speak english very well, rooms are clean and small but they're ok for 1 person. definetly would go back.
Our bedroom was fine aud clean ; the showers could be cleaner and must be painted again. all the commun parts must be renovated. But is't cheap.
It's what you pay for. One of the staff spoke really clear English which was a plus, but the common showers were a negative. They aren't open 24/7 and there aren't toilets in your room either so you have to walk down the hall every time. Not bad for what it is, a clean bed and a relatively quiet place to sleep. The subway is right outside and it's pretty close to the zoo. If you don't want anything flashy, this is the place for you.

Great location and easy to get to. The staff was friendly and helped out when it was needed. The room was clean. My only negative experience is that, the walls are thin. If your neighbor makes noise or has his tv loud, you will hear it. A lot of other quests did not follow the notice to be quite after 10pm sign!!!! . But for the money, i would stay again.
The hostel is located very close to the station. The room was quite clean but smelled weird. In terms of price, it was great to stay there.
