Warm bed, quiet room and you can see the train station from the building, there's nothing more you could ask for this close to everything Osaka. My 1st time over seas (and solo at that) as soon as I arrived I had no more worries about traveling. The manager there is the warmest and most helpful person you could ask for and the atmosphere provided made me feel right at home. The hostel is little more than a bed in a room but the location and staff have me recommending this to my friends.

Very friendly staff, but rest room, bathoom and bed linen were not clean.
no room key was given until i asked for it,generally was clean but dont go near windows and so on,it was full of humidities. no enought toilet/showers for a big amount of people. there was also someone using the pc all the time "doing something important' as watching drama while using the phone or talking to others. one time was enought ,I would never go back there.
The double room is not really a double room because there is no door. Beds separated by a curtain are quite normal for dorms in japanese hostels so the curtain instead of the door makes the double rooms more like a big dorm with walls between the beds.
We booked a private room for 2 people end of March 2014. The room was very very small . Could be more cleaner . Common space was cool to meet people. Guesthouse area was not very cool.
Hostel is near JR ST, but directions are dubious, and if you take the wrong way people will try to help you to arrive in Peace House Socha, (same owner that gives almost the same name to the hostels, that can be a BIG PROBLEM). No staff. Some resident will give you the key just between 6:30 to 10pm and explain nothing. All building is VERY DIRTY, there is nobody to clean, my room wall was full of snots, hair for every part, people live our things and garbage on the aisle. Kind of slum tenement.
Rooms are cold and if you use the heater then you risk having problems if you have any allergies as the heating units look like they have never been cleaned and are just blowing dusty air onto you while you're sleeping. The windows don't stop the air coming in on a night and you can visibly see the curtains blowing when they are closed.
10 bed dorm- actually there are 10 beds(5 bunks) and the bunks are separated by walls so you're only really sharing a space with one bunkmate, there's a curtain between the hallway and bunkbed. One shower and toilet per floor. Nice little common area on first floor with good atmosphere. Very limited luggage space, anything bigger than a small suitcase or backpack and you'll need to keep it in the common room (which doesn't have much space). AC poorly placed, blows air on top bunk only :P
All in all, sort of what you expect for the price you're paying. Not a terrible place just not the best. Staff were friendly and helpful. The dorms were essentially bunkbeds in seperate curtained off quarters which was a perk. The matresses/ bankets and pillows were very very average. However yet again in line with what you get for what you pay. The local area, Shin-Imamiya, albeit the ghetto of Osaka was actually quite interesting and allowed a glance at the elusive japanese lower class.
This place is good for what it charges. The staff were great and everyone spoke english. The location is near a lot of tourist places, and near my favorite restaurant in Osaka. You can't go wrong by choosing to stay in that area. The rooms are too small. It's hard to fit inside a room even without your luggage. That's the only complain I have. Like there rest of Osaka, Wi-Fi is very hard to access.
