The staff are very nice and helpful with all enquiries. Mr Yano also offers free guide services to some places of interest around Osaka (check the schedule) and he is a likeable person. He also hosts an international party every Friday at 7pm and the first drink is on the house for the hostel guests. We were happy staying here except that there was no elevator and we had to lug our luggages up and down the narrow staircase.

I loved this hostel! A nice place to meet people, very clean. Staff speaks English very well and gives good info about the town.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave great advice for okonomiyaki places. The bathrooms were also clean and convenient. I liked having curtains around the bed for privacy and the personal outlets. The wifi wasn't working well during our stay so it was a bit difficult to plan our trip without access to Internet. The location was great though, it was in a local area with lots of small restaurants nearby. It's also close enough to more populated areas and the train station.

When staying in Osaka, I really recommend this place. Just minutes outside the Osaka loop line and there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. And oh, if you have a chance to meet Mr yano, I recommend you do!

Great hostel: clean, very helpful staff, and centrally located with easy access to trains and metro. It's in an interesting neighborhood packed with restaurants and shops. Only drawback is that you have to pay for a luggage locker in the room (or bring your own lock). The wifi didn't work when I was there, but the staff was working hard to fix it. Recommended!

J-Hoppers was an AMAZING hostel! Inexpensive yet in a great location. Very conveniently located near a train station just one stop from Osaka Station (the city's main station). Very friendly people, both who work there and other guests. Clean, had air conditioning, private double room door locks, and it's overall fantastic! The only thing I would suggest is to try to get a room on the second or third floor. We had a room on the fourth floor... we also had a lot of luggage. There's no elevator.

I only got to stay the night so I didn't get to explore Osaka as much as I originally intended to. The time I spent there was great. I met up with some cool people, checked out some cool bars/restaurants and cafes.

Thank you for staying with us :) We wish you could get here earlier and see Osaka more :( But as long as you enjoyed with some guests, we all are happy! Hope to see you again!

Sorry for the lack of the elevator. But actually the 3rd floor is the lowest floor of private rooms. We will help you to carry your bags next time :)

Loved my stay at this hostel. The roof top patio is a great place to hang out and have some drinks with other travelers. The hostel organizes plenty of social events which are super fun and a great way to meet other travelers. The location is a bit far from the city centre but easy to get to on the JR. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Stayed one night at j-Hoppers in Osaka. Only slight problem I had was that you can't check in earlier than 1500 and can't get into the room between 1100 and 1500 (for cleaning). Other than that, the place was excellent, helpful staff, good atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Osaka.
