Not very spacious, right next no very busy street so extremely noisy, beds creak a lot, doesn{t really have any communal areas to meet other people, and all the spaces in general are quite small (lavatory, bathroom, shower, etc), narrow stairs that make it hard to carry luggage up... But I did get offered a free umbrella even though I was leaving and would not be able to return it! Thanks

Location was good. The dormitory is a little noisy. The staff is friendly and good and benefit of a convenience.

Staff was good. Location was great. Right next to the subway and JR lines. Wasn't the cleanest place, but its understandable when 12 girls are getting ready in the morning. No bicycles for hire like it says in their amenities. Or when we asked she didn't understand. Overall, no problems and met some nice people. Good place to stay for a few nights.

Servicable place, close to main shopping areas.


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!
