Among all my experience and stay in different places of Japan, this was my worst ever stay till date. The staffs lack courtesy and have no welcoming sign, seemed rude as if not happy to see the foreigners. Don't be tempted with Men's private bath, they cleverly limited the timing between 5-10pm within which the daytime traveler cannot use it at all id he doesn't come back before 9:30pm. I warn other people, Don't choose this hostel at any cost. Had a very uncomfortable stay.


There's only 2 female showers in the entire building which was at ground floor. The elevator took quite long as well. There isn't a lock up for the backdoor after 11pm and there were guys smoking by the elevator which made me feel unsafe and it stinks. There were toilets on each floor, but it was not well-maintained. Some of the travellers poured leftovers of instant noodles onto the sink and stink up the whole place.


This hostel was very nice for the price, toilets and showers were constantly clean, and statf would also clean your room if needed. The rooms are quite small, however you do get your own so it's good for privacy. Anyone can just come and go but i felt completely safe the whole time i was there. The staff were very accommodating and allowed us to keep our bags there even when we checked out early in the morning. The only thing missing is a common room! Would definitely visit again!

Dirty rooms, showers and toilet, weird people (bumps and drunk Japanese), I did not feel safe there. In that area you can find way more better hostels for the same price.


Good for your money.


Event though the place had room's in Japanese style there was not much of it, place was badly maintained and was lacking atmosphere, it is rather hostel for local ethnic minorities which travel to Japan to get job, it is not set for tourist as such. Wi - Fi access was available however in the main corridor directly under the router for sure not in my room.


Right by the exit of JR, kinda of sketch people around. Nothing special about it, was a bed for the night. I'd go again but would think about it if i was a girl.


Nice Hostel, close to attractions and right off the subway line, also 2 blocks away from the Shin-Imamiya JR Train station from the Osaka Loop line, Even though they may tell you the rooms are non smoker, some do smell like they were smoker. Some rooms need a bit of work on the floor but other than that, cleanliness is outstanding.

Unfortunately for me, when i checked in, there was a big group of scouts from indonesia which created a huge ruckus, very noisy, loitering and sleeping in the hallway, littering and slamming their room doors even after midnight. The hotel's management should have been more strict with these rowdy guests.


-Back door of hotel is unlocked -Location is convenient, but a bit dodgy -No complaints about staff -Walls are so thin, nights were very noisy, next to a busy street -Inexpensive -No A/C in my room, centralized A/C was very minimal on hot nights. I stayed for two nights and got mediocre rest.
