J-Hoppers was an amazing hostel :D I loved my stay here: the staff was great and so helpful, the people staying there were awesome, and the location was right by the Fukushima station (beware if you want to go out at night to another spot because the trains will stop running and the cab will rack up a large bill..) There's always free coffee and tea, with a very spacious kitchen that you can store food in. I can't wait to check out other J-Hoppers hostels in other cities the next chance I have

The location is not bad, but is very noisy. The staff is not very helpful. Lockers are very tiny.

Close to some bars and chain izakayas, so there is good nightlife - although they can be a little noisy throughout the night. Staff are knowledgeable and can speak english. There are quite a few toilets and washbasins, so no worries about sanitary needs. There is are weekly programmes by one of the staff members, Mr Yano, which are quite enjoyable - do join in if it fits into your schedule!

Excellent place! They accidentally overbooked me but made up a room for me in the basement. Great social activities throughout the week. Absolutely what I was looking for in a hostel.

I enjoyed my stay at J-Hoppers Osaka. The place is clean and comfortable and although I didn't take advantage of the social activities it's nice that they were available. The storage lockers are relatively small and only really suitable for a small bag containing valuables.

I highly recommend this hostel! The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are numerous fun bonding experiences with the legendary Mr. Yano. The location is great...the subway and Umeda sky building are very close by. The facility is clean.

It's our first time staying at a hostel and we didn't have high expectations because of the price and was prepared to "rough it out", but I'm happy to say that we enjoyed our stay a lot and had a good night's rest here! The location is fantastic, just a few minutes walk from Fukushima Station and surrounded by restaurants and cafes. It's also a short train ride away to Universal Studios, Osaka Station and Umeda Station. Highly recommended!

The location is nice. Located next to a loop line station and a restaurant / bar area. Downside: the luggage room cannot be locked. Also showers are not available on each floor. Bit inconvenient but ok. However, the worst part was the noise. The rooms are separated from the corridor / toilet area only by sliding doors with ventilation grills, so you can hear everything people do and say in their rooms. Even when people whisper. I recommend you get used to wearing earplugs if you want to sleep.

This place is in quite good location. Just one station away from osaka(umeda station). I enjoyed staying in this acommodation. I will visit again. However? If you have heavy lugguages or you have physical difficulties, u may suffer from the stairs in this guesthouse, because it dose not have any lift. Otherwise, its good place to stay in osaka.
