I stayed at this hostel previously but this time i went i had a better time cause i was lucky to have the international party with Mr. cant remember his name (his the owner). But he was very nice to offer me a free drink when i left my voucher in my room. The other people staying there were awesome (mostly from Australia, Britain and America) we drank sake and told funny stories. The place was clean and not bad for the price. The location is great very close to Fukushima station.
stayed in a three bed dorm. what really makes this hostel are that it is clean and the staff oh and security is pretty good too. it was a bit of a mission to the fifth floor each time but at least i got a workout. mr yano and the chatty reception area really make this a fun place to be. the lounge downstairs was an oasis if that wasnt your scene. location meant it was only one stop from jr osaka station. honestly cant think of any other ways to make this hostel any better. they do tours too
The location is good, staff is friendly and helpful, the overall place is neat
the best hostel that i have stay!! clean room, excellent location and really nice staffs!! thanks to mr yano alot for the tour and they are really awesome!! will definitely come back again!!
Due to our flight being delayed we missed our first nights booked accommodation.The staff generously did not charge us.We were most impressed. The Hostel was in a great location in a very quiet, foot traffic only street. Restaurants a plenty and reasonable. Would certainly stay here again.
good location,close to JR fukushima station, and 10 min walk to Osaka station which has subway which leads you to many places of interest.staff was very helpfull and the place is very clean. recommendable.
I really enjoyed my stay here, the best thing was definately the staff. Staff were very friendly especially Mr Yano!. The rooms were clean and I met some people from overseas in the common area. The common area was a little small but made it easier to meet new friends. Definately good value for money and highly recommended.
I would definitely stay at this hostel when i visit Japan again! Value for money and staffs are friendly.
The location is good, right next to jr station
No problem with my early arrival from the airport. Good location near a station and pleanty of food options near by. Staff really good - helped when I wanted to know what was happening with the typhoon that was incoming. I enjoyed being back in Osaka.
It was our second time staying at J hoppers. The first time was when we met. Kitchen and common room are good for meeting other travellers. Mr Yano often organizes fun stuff. We joined a takoyaki party and socialized with the other backpackers.
The location is convenient,near station and easy to find. The staffs are very friendly, and the bedis comfortable too. I and my friends even has decided to stay at J hoppers again at our next year Japan trip^^.

I only stopped here the one night and left pretty early. That was my plans rather than the hostel. There are plenty of bars/nearby in the street and a 7-11 store is round the corner. It's one stop away from Osaka train station on the loop line. A little bit out of the way perhaps but once located a breeze to find again. The manager is quite a character and there was a free 'welcome' drink with other travelers in the early evening.
A very good location hostel at Osaka. For those come from Kansai Airport, you can reach Fukushima station straight away by JR train, and around 5-10min walk distance to the accommodation. Around 4 stations to Universal Studio (20min riding time). Ask the staff how to find delicious local food, they are helpful and friendly. Many delicious food nearby, the cuisine winner award shop (Wagyu BBQ) is in front of the hostel too. A bit noisy if the people next room is disturbing.
Easily the gold standard in hostel culture. The location was easy to find. 5 min. walk to JR Fukushima Station and a quick 15-min walk to JR Osaka Central Terminal (to those coming from Kansai Airport, get the Kansai Airport-JR Fukushima Stn. ticket). The day I arrived, there was a regular pub hopping event at 7PM. It was a nice introduction to Osaka! The staff were amazing! The only downside is the bathroom facility which is only one on my floor. Overall, it was afantastic stay. I'll be back!
the location of the hostel is quite near from the fukushima station, only 3 minutes walk.. but the facility is poor since there is no elevator and we stayed in 4th floor with a very very steep stairs. It is very difficult to bring the luggage upstairs, even though there is a helper who help bringing the luggage. And after walking around it is too burden to go upstairs without an elevator.
I had some of the best memories in Japan thanks to this hostel :) The staff is very friendly, speaks great English and they take you out to group events where you can meet other travellers. In my case, I took the chance to make Takoyaki myself and never regretted it because of the people I met :) Should I come back to Osaka, I'm definitely going there again!
Had really good time there, special hello to Mr. Yano!
Really nice time in Osaka with J-Hoppers. The visit with Mr. Yano was really fun and the takoyaki night too. If I come back to Japan, I'll surely book here again! :D
Excellent hostel. Pros: Clean, friendly staff, good English, programs available for sightseeing/nightlife etc. Cons: Paper-thin walls (you could hear your neighbours' conversations as if they were sitting next to you, whether you wanted to or not), the hostel's party host (Mr. Mako or something like that) seemed tacky and obnoxious - but I could see some people being into that.
