Close to train station. Clean and good wifi. Stairs to different levels. Great staff with good information. Well priced.
The Hostel has a good location, near train station. The staff very friendly, and they help you always you ask! The only bad thing, they make a party, but trying to get your money with the beers. They give a tickets with free drinks, but then the boss say you can not use them... :(
The guesthouse is spotless. It's very close to Fukushima station in a nice quiet neighbourhood and with a 7-11 at the end of the street. The beds were comfortable and the shower cubicles were great. There's a lot of stairs as the rooms are spread among 5 floors but if you don't mind that, then book here. The staff were wonderful and have us a free beer and takoyaki one night.
Great street to go out for a drink Japanese style. Very close by trainstation so you can explore Osaka from here easily.
A great hostel with a great staff. They were willing to help with anything, and enjoyed conversation. It had a nice atmosphere. I would definitely stay with them again.
One of the best feature of J-Hoppers Osaka is the location. 5 minutes walk to the JR station, which is then a 2 minute ride to Osaka station. Hostel is surrounded by drinking and small eateries, which operates at night time. Staff members are great, very help.
Great place to stay and meet other travellers. Facilities are good and the hostel is very clean. Staff is also great! Definitely recommend staying here.
Great hostel! Very good location and security plus the staff is great! They organized a small international party on the ground floor with both guests and people from Osaka...spaces are not huge but you get used to it staying in Japan, overall super recommended!
We enjoyed our time at the hostel, the mattress were thin and hard. The stairs were steep for anyone older staying there.

Clean and nice like everywhere in Japan. A bit dead usually, but people come out for the parties on fridays at least. Facilities were great, especially the showers.
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!
