The stay here was wonderful! Staff was very helpful, and when I walked in the door I was offered an unagi bowl for dinner. The rooftop patio has a lovely view and was a great place to hang out on a summer night. The proximity to the train station makes it a great place for passing through, but if you're staying longer, a more happening area may be better.
Only stayed one night but it was nice, clean, well run, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. It's a short walk to the nearest train station and within walking distance of Osaka Station where there's lots of shops and food. The only downside is that there is no elevator, which was pretty rough since I was on the fifth floor. All in all a great place, with a young, friendly hostel-y vibe.
Very helpful and knowledgable staff. Great english and great personalities! Thanks guys

Staffs are great and they will help you out for anything. Plz, when you booking, be careful, using e-mail booking coz they may no paying attention on it, called them or use hostel world.
very convenient location, met some good people, staff had good recommendations. nothing wrong really. you can get a direct train to nara from the same station too
We only stayed for one night but had a really good time. At our arrival, the receptionist was friendly and gave us all the information we needed for a fun day in Osaka. She also recommended us a restaurant near the hostel which was one of the best places we went to during our trip to Japan, great! Luggage is kept in a special room for those who arrive earlier than check-in time and one can use all the facilities except for the dorms.
The only problem I had with this hostel were the computers- they were so old and slow, almost impossible to use! Other than that, everything was very nice. Thanks for a nice stay!
Thank you so much, I had a great stay! The staff were so friendly and helpful and my friend and I loved Yano-san! The tour was excellent and great fun. Our only regret was that we didn't stay long enough for the Sunday party! Thank you once again! - Jack and Massimo
Thank you so much, we had the best time in Osaka on Mr. Yano's tour and met some amazing people. The staff are really helpful and know a lot about the area. Hostel is in a good location, close to the station and lots of bars and places to eat on the same street as the hostel. They also organize a lots of tours, we wish we could have stayed longer!
Great hospitality, laughed a lot with the international party. When there was no room available they called to another hostel. Great!
Mr. Yano is the coolest guy ever! and the staff is so helpful. Place was clean, just sad to be home.

They have very friendly english-speaking staff! (shoutout to Keiko-san!) She provided us with maps around osaka, recommended places for us to visit and where to have good food, very nice service! The hostel is really clean and quiet, and it is very easily accessible by train! just a 5 min walk from Fukushima station! Will definitely visit again!
This hostel was perfect for exploring Osaka and it's environs. It's located a little outside the main business area of the city yet in a beautiful, quaint neighborhood called Fukushima that deserves to be explored in it's own right. Its ideal for backpackers or anyone who is staying for a short while in Osaka and needs a good base from which to see and experience the main attractions. Extremely helpful staff who offered good local advice made my trip an absolutely fantastic experience!
Rooms were spacious, no elevator so stairs were annoying. Location was great :)
This hostel is conveniently located one stop one the JR line away from Osaka station. The neighborhood is quaint, residential and quite lovely. Staff members were very friendly and spoke excellent English. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the common area downstairs is quite spacious. Our only complaint is that there was no elevator. Our room was on the 5th floor so we had to carry our luggage all the way!
Great location, very close to the metro station. Staff was very helpful, and rooms were clean.
- Good location w/ minutes of walking from the JR Loop Line - Super great value for money (for us, 2500 JPY/night-person) - Helpful and friendly staff
Great hostel. Good location. Would recommend the hostel-run free tour as well!
Staff was amazing. Mr. Yano sold me on staying here. Only real complaint is the curtains in the female dorm are sorta see through.
