Best hostel I stayed during my trip in Japan!! (I've been to J-hoppers other branches and they're good! too!). Location was perfect, 3 few mins walk from Fukushima JR station with lots of food & convenient store surrounding it, very close to USJ, staff was nice, bed was perfect, the room was big for 6 people, & the hostel was soooo clean, fast wifi, no complaint at all.. will back here if i visit Osaka again :)

It was a great place. The staff was super helpful and there was a lot of events that you could participate in if you wanted to. They even had a table at the head of each bed. The only thing was there were only four showers for the entire hostel, but you can work around that. Also people need to learn that when you are in a hostel there are other people as well and you need to be considerate, like not staying up all night with the light on. That is a reflection on people rather than the hostel.

We had a great stay in a private three-bedroom room at J-Hoppers. The staff are friendly and helpful when you need feedback, help or any suggestions/recommendations for places to visit. There are also discounted tickets that you can buy for popular attractions with J-Hoppers at the front desk. All facilities were clean and they empty out your garbage daily. It is a good location, close to the central station of Osaka (15 min. walk). They had free adapters to borrow when we didn't have any. A+!

The location was a bit inconvenient, but the facilities were clean, the room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the wifi was good. The events were also fantastic, the international party was a great opportunity to meet some locals.

Particularly the staff at Hoppers made my first Japanese stay successful and great. Meg suggested, then meticulously planned and prepared me to navigate the trains, cable car and buses to a terrific temple stay at Shojoshin in Koyasan. As a solo female traveler, I so appreciate the expert advice of all the staff and the coziness of J Hoppers. It's a home away from home . Stay here and enjoy the location by the JR station and a great environment. Cute pedestrian street with sweet restaurants too.

Great place to stay. Nice location, right by the Fukushima station which is one stop away from Osaka and on JR line, perfect if you have JR pass. Also the surrounding area has loads of restaurants, and easy access to other places in the city. Staff were also super friendly and helped me out with train times and routes and advice, and there is a free luggage storage for after you check out

Great hostel, really nice staff who have lots of advice for things to do in osaka and other nearby cities. Fukushima is a pretty quaint area but it isn't all that close to Dotonbori or Namba so you have to get around on the subway (or you can use their bikes, it's pretty easy to ride around the city!) I wasn't there for any of the events but they have free tours and parties scheduled throughout the week which is cool.

A great hostel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Location is good if you have a JR rail pass as it is right next to a train station, and easy access to the Kansai airport. Be sure to go to Mr. Yano's food tour on Tuesdays or tour to visit a museum where you can wear a kimono! I can recommend this hostel. Thank you!

Thank you for the sweet comment! If you have a JR pass, you can go pretty much everywhere ! We are happy you enjoyed Mr Yano's tour :) You look great in Kimono! Hope to see you again :)

Not much happening when I was there, but super friendly and helpful staff. Get good discounts for most of the sites that you want to visit which is a big plus. Not much storage space for gear would be biggest downfall.

A good, clean hostel with a friendly atmosphere. Lots of help and instructions provided by the staff. The 8-bed mixed dorm was pretty cold, but in the 3-bed mixed dorm there was an aircon which helped a lot.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for staying with us ;) We have the air conditioner in 8 mixed dormitory room too! And we could rent more blankets if you asked us :( Please don't hesitate to ask anything next time :)
