Location is great, about 10 minutes to Namba/shinsaibashi area but far enough away that it's still pretty quiet. Staff were really nice and helpful, but they don't speak a ton of English. Stairs are narrow and steep so big suitcases can be a problem. There wasn't much of a common room, so you couldn't really meet people. Wouldn't recommend for solo travelers, but perfectly adequate bed for a few nights.


After a few weeks of staying in Ryokans, a 2500 yen hostel was never going to be too inspiring. And so it transpired. Nothing wrong with the hostel per se, but the constant light flicking, continuous rumblings of the nearby metro and the inevitable snoring that comes with a ten bed dorm didn't leave a great impression. We were also hoping to meet some other backpackers... We didn't! If your budget can stretch just a tad, go for a cheap ryokan - you'll meet more people and sleep so much better!


Koma staff are friendly and helpfull. Koma is a great place to stay...only a short walk to Shinsaibashi. I reccomend it as an easy and homely place to stay


The location of the hostel was good, if you want to stay near the center of Osaka. As an area the center is not the nicest though. The hostel was in an old house and it was very cold in the common areas. The room was quite warm since they had a heater there. The staff was friendly. It is an average hostel in a central location and if you need to stay nere the city center, I would recommend this hostel. But if you want "a real Osaka experience", I would recommend to stay somewhere else.


Enjoyed a lovely, quiet stay here for three nights. The staff were excellent - always smiling and helpful. Not too far from the subway, nightlife, and shopping, all within 10 minutes walking. Would stay again!! Thank you very much.


My favourite Hostel in Japan! Crazy and lovely host woman, much much fun and nice people.


This hostel is close to JR Namba station, but keep in mind that it is a 50 minute ride from JR Osaka station to JR Namba station. Good place to stay.
