Nobody at the reception speaks english. The rooms and the rest of the hotel STINKS like an ashtray, very disgusting. Not a nice place to stay if you are a woman since there is only 1 female toilet , and you need the key from the staff everytime you want to use it. Only positive things about this hotel is the public bath, and the cheap price - but you get what you pay for.

The best choice for 4-5 days in Osaka. It's small, comfy, more privacy, better than in a dormitory. One thing lack is that there has no much shower room. Need to wait for 2-3 persons before I can take a shower.

Great value but as others have mentioned, maybe not the best place to stay for a solo female traveller. Yes, the location is in a slightly dodgy area but never felt in any real danger. Can also confirm the single shower and smell of cigarettes but that didn't bother me. All rooms are private which was nice. Cheap supermarket around the corner and close to trains.

The hotel is located a little deep in the dark side of Osaka. Many other budget hotels in this area are within a close distance from the nearby stations, but you have walk in the poorest neighbourhood a bit longer to get to this one. The staff are nice and the room is equipped with a TV, a fridge and an airconditioner, which is very rare for hotels in this price range. You just have to be careful not to miss the public bath time as the shower facility is very limited.

Very secure and u definately have a good privacy. As u have a whole rooms but urself. and the room is just good enough for a person to stay. Like the concept of a bigger capsule hotel in Osaka. Location is good and just a few minutes walk to reach the famous tower in Osaka.

clean in the room for me,female bathroom was clean& u could tell they checked it each day. It was very inconvenient that they had only 1 female bathroom/shower and I had to ask for a key to it. Its awful if ur on a schedule or just really have to freaking use the restroom. For location it's in a sketchy area that people peed on streets outside constantly. Would not recommend this place to girls.No close fastfood, only conbini so at late night no food. No open restraunts in evening, was annoying

The place is located in a random area, you can walk and reach restaurants and street food which is cool. the place itself is a basic hostel, with individual mini-rooms. unfortunately first thing i found in my room was a small dead cockroach and another one i had to get rid of myself. The room/hallway smells like cigarettes as people smoke on the balcony, toilets and around the hallway. The sheets were clean and the shower was impecable (best thing of the whole stay).
