Very nice and super clean hostel. Good location just a few minute walk to JR station with direct train from and to KIX airport and a lot of affordable price restaurants. Staffs are excellent, very friendly and very informative about Osaka and area city near by. I like they way you guys put up activities like Wednesday tour and Friday party, very good approach to attract customers... great job J-Hopper! The only problem I had was my room was very stink on the 1st night, even air spay can't help.

Good place, nice shared bathroom (use the press tap ones for better temp), nice regular crowd gatherings on the first floors, helpful staff (who you should talk to for discounts to where you're going - they speak good English too). The room walls are thin and you have to climb the stairs. Other than that, the place is easy to go to, has nice izakayas around (go to the one just opposite the hostel and order a sashimi moriawase at 880 yen).

A truly great hostel! The staff are so friendly and it's quite small and cosy, hence if you're travelling alone it's very easy to meet people. I was so lucky to arrive when I did, as I just caught the tour with Mr Yano, who you just have to meet- he makes the trip to Osaka alone worthwhile!!!

Probably the best place I ever stayed at. If you stay on a Wednesday you should join the tour to the Samurai museum. It's fun.

Arrived late, left early. So, only very superficial impression: good situation, worth its money.

Less than 5 minutes walk from JR Fukushima station, so extremely accessible especially for JR pass holders. Dorm rooms have space for baggage and there are in room lockers too. Complete facilities: coin laundry and dryer, kitchen, etc. Even have vending machines for bevereges and beer! Staff are nice and accommodating.

Unequivocally, the best hostel in all of Japan. The mixed dorm is clean and airy with a feeling more like summer camp than anything else. There are lockers in each room if you're worried about your valuables, wi-fi on every floor, a kitchen for if you ever find a grocery store, and, although I never looked, a common room with TV's and PC's to use. Also, great events at the hostel that provide you with an opportunity to meet locals. The staff is incredibly warm, specifically Keiko and Meg. Enjoy.

That's a great hostel!! The staff is really amazing (very friendly and sweet girls), the location and the facilities are good as well. Fortunately I could meet a lot of nice travelers there,They should improve the hostel directions (give more details about where to go when turning left at the Donuts store), I highly recommend this place!

It was a good stay, but nothing else more to mention. Everythign was average, nothing bad at all, but Ive stayed in nicer places for the same price. I was only here for one night, but it was okay. There is no elevator which was annoying trekking up and down the steps with my luggage. Also, not all the floors have showers on them so I had to keep going up and downstairs. Otherwise, it was good, but nothing special.

Location are superb, so many izakaya around and plenty restaurant. The train station is very near and have direct access to airport.
