The rooms had a not friendly layout leaving lots of space that couldn't really be used, so it wasn't very comfortable, the same goes to the bed. The location is great and the staff friendly. When we stayed at the hostel were only a few people so we there wasnt really to much problem with the showers but, in our room were beds for 10 people and only 1 shower avalible. I will look for another hostel next time I go to Osaka

You can never find the staff, the ladyb is nice, but if feels like there's nobody there most of the time. No coffee, or something, just a place to sleep, that's all. It's really near to a JR station very close to the Osaka Castle tough, and about 25 min from Nanba area.


The dorm was bit small and there were no lockers or other places to store luggage easily. Staff was friendly but not often present.


The hostel is kind of far from station, but it's OK, you can enjoy walking around shopping streets. If you want to stay up late to walk around the city, I don't recommend this hostel, because you can't use bathroom and lounge in the middle of the night. Anyway, for me, the worst thing was that bathroom was kinda dirty.


Okay for the price but bathrooms were a bit dirty and staff never seemed to be around when you wanted them. Location isn't really near anything either.


Yui very available, explaining where the nice clubs are and helping me out with laundry.


The hostel is in a charming back street and the hostess is really nice, the facilities are horrid though. Our door could be (and was) broken in by a four year old and you could hear every sound, including all the jammed doors that needed an extra push. Warm water was only available for the first few guests and internet didn't reach anything beyond the first room after the reception area. Living area was very awkward. Could be a great place, but definitely needs some improvements.


A very basic hostel, pretty old and not so clean. Location isn't bad, but it's not particularly close to anything. For 2500 for one night in a dorm bed, I was expecting a nicer facility. No lockers and the shower room is a pain to use. Overly excited staff lady insisted on taking my picture before I left.


Nami is such a nice lady! The bed comes with electronic heating pad, which would be very ideal for the winter! However the rooms seemed it needed some maintenance. Overall pleasant stay!


This place is okay but you can get a lot better for similar cost. Very run down rooms and the shower room I used was pretty mouldy and gross. Staff were friendly and helpful though.


The staff is nice, location is a bit too far from the station. My most concern are the cleanest of hostel. It was very small, old and very dirty especially bed room and bathroom.
