Had really good time there, special hello to Mr. Yano!
Really nice time in Osaka with J-Hoppers. The visit with Mr. Yano was really fun and the takoyaki night too. If I come back to Japan, I'll surely book here again! :D
Excellent hostel. Pros: Clean, friendly staff, good English, programs available for sightseeing/nightlife etc. Cons: Paper-thin walls (you could hear your neighbours' conversations as if they were sitting next to you, whether you wanted to or not), the hostel's party host (Mr. Mako or something like that) seemed tacky and obnoxious - but I could see some people being into that.

Excellent hostel! Everything including the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were kept incredibly clean and the rooms themselves were very nice with privacy curtains and lamps for each bed. The location was good - just a short walk from the nearest train station, which had good connections to other parts of the city and made it easy to get to the major sights. The staff were all very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here!
Enjoyable place to stay, this is not a party hostel. Its a quiet friendly one that is easy to get to and the staff are friendly.
Simply brilliant! J-hoppers is great value (not to be mistaken for "cheap but rubbish"). While you do not have to pay a premium, the staff were wonderful and friendly, the rooms were clean, and the location was great as well. The only thing I have to note is that the walls are a bit thin so if your room neighbours are a bit loud you can hear them. We never had any problems at night however. So, highly recommended!!!
We loved that they had strong internet. It was definitely a party hostel though, so if that isn't your scene maybe pick somewhere else. Helpful and informative staff though.
Staff went above and beyond expectations to help us. The hostel organised outings were super fun. Place is very easy to find and close to main jr lines. Would recommend to everyone.
it is a good place!

Quite basic in terms of facilities but staff were really helpful and there was lots of useful information available. Area is close to Osaka and Shinkansen stations, but about half an hour from dotombori and Namba nightlife
Excellent location (close to Fukushima station), friendly staff and always keen to help you in whatever you need, a confy reception and general good facilities.
Lovely and really helpful staff. In an excellent location. Would definitely use again
Good location (nice, atmospheric street 1 stop away from Osaka station), great staff (be sure to take the trip to Samurai Museum with Mister Yano!), awesome takoyaki parties with international backpackers and Japanese people, and overall nice atmosphere made my stay really enjoyable. Only complaint is that staircase was a bit inconvenient to climb; I guess it can't be helped in a small building like this.
Great Hostel, but you can hear every noise through the walls. Thank you for the great evening Mr. Yano!!
nice rooms, clean bathrooms, staff is very friendly and can help you out a lot. the location is also very convenient.
This J hoppers, like the other ones, was absolutely phenomenal! Mr. Yano is a great tour guide and the events that the hostel has set up are fun and you meet great people and get to participate in true japanese culture. The location is one stop from the Osaka station on the JR line so it's easy to go sightseeing. The hostel offers great deals on Umeda sky building, the aquarium, and more. Staff was wonderful, rooms were wonderful, and overall I had a great experience and would stay here again!
The rooftop access and Mr Yano were our favorite parts staying at this place. The room was great too!
WiFi is very slow, but charming atmosphere and very helpful people!
Staff were very kind in letting me know how and where to go
