Not sure if this can be fixed, but sound travels really easy through the walls. I would always wake up to my neighbors making noise.

Normally I don't bother with reviews but I'll make an exception for this one. This place is great. The people I met and befriended at this hostel were integral in my enjoyment of my time in Osaka. Mr. Yano is my hero and the rest of the staff are also phenomenal. The facilities are impeccably tidy (even when the place is very busy) and it's clear they made many considerations for the visitors' quality-of-life when furnishing and arranging the place. I honestly have nothing bad to say about it

Great hostel and excellent staff. Have stayed here before, however this time an inconsiderate traveler thought that waking up 5 guests by turning on the light at 1am to remove makeup unpack bag etc was OK !! No more dorms !!!! Double rooms don't cost that much more.

This is the place to stay in Osaka! The staff is amazing and helpful! Takoyaki party they had was such a great time and met awesome people! Only a quick walk from the Fukushima station in Osaka! I had a great time! In the dorms there the beds have curtains to block light which was very nice (:

The staffs were really nice, they answered all my questions and gave me lots of important information about Osaka. The environment was really clean and comfortable, it made me feel at home! I didn't join the parties because I am a bit shy. But those parties absolutely made me feel wonderful because they made me understand that I was not alone in a foreign country. I did not feel lonely and depressed, which usually happen when I am in a foreign country. Thank you so much!

This hostel was decent. Facilities were clean. They have lockers (though they are annoyingly small) and rooms were clean. There are decent common spaces. They have free computer access.

Adequate and suffice for a quick stay. May be overcrowded if the place is full

The staff are very nice and helpful with all enquiries. Mr Yano also offers free guide services to some places of interest around Osaka (check the schedule) and he is a likeable person. He also hosts an international party every Friday at 7pm and the first drink is on the house for the hostel guests. We were happy staying here except that there was no elevator and we had to lug our luggages up and down the narrow staircase.

I loved this hostel! A nice place to meet people, very clean. Staff speaks English very well and gives good info about the town.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave great advice for okonomiyaki places. The bathrooms were also clean and convenient. I liked having curtains around the bed for privacy and the personal outlets. The wifi wasn't working well during our stay so it was a bit difficult to plan our trip without access to Internet. The location was great though, it was in a local area with lots of small restaurants nearby. It's also close enough to more populated areas and the train station.

When staying in Osaka, I really recommend this place. Just minutes outside the Osaka loop line and there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. And oh, if you have a chance to meet Mr yano, I recommend you do!

Great hostel: clean, very helpful staff, and centrally located with easy access to trains and metro. It's in an interesting neighborhood packed with restaurants and shops. Only drawback is that you have to pay for a luggage locker in the room (or bring your own lock). The wifi didn't work when I was there, but the staff was working hard to fix it. Recommended!

J-Hoppers was an AMAZING hostel! Inexpensive yet in a great location. Very conveniently located near a train station just one stop from Osaka Station (the city's main station). Very friendly people, both who work there and other guests. Clean, had air conditioning, private double room door locks, and it's overall fantastic! The only thing I would suggest is to try to get a room on the second or third floor. We had a room on the fourth floor... we also had a lot of luggage. There's no elevator.
