Clean overall, but facilities quite run down/minimal - bathroom mould, no proper changing room or hooks for towels/clothes. Very thin futon with no proper bed sheets. The living space was however quite cosy. Cost seemed reasonable for twin but was literally a bunkbed and no floor space; stopped for a night so wasn't too bad, though I would advise against it if you plan to stop longer. Wifi didn't work on top floor. Staff welcome on arrival, whilst polite, was uninformative & unfriendly.
Right on the tram line that gets you to Namba and Umeda. A lot of homeless guys in the area, unless they're just smelly old dudes that like sleeping on the ground. Room was really small, but that's all you need. Would have liked to meet more people in the common room on Saturday night etc for a social pre-drinks but I think that is just a byproduct of the place being small and having long term stayers. Cheap beers all throughout the area though in local standing bars! Often less than 200JPY.
The "Dormitory" with 10 beds is in fact a floor with 7 rooms - shower, toilet and 5 "rooms" with 2 beds (loft bed) each. There is very little space in the hostel. It is good if you just need bed and dont have a lot of luggage, otherwise better use another hostel
Nothing terrible about this place but didn't find it great. Bed didn't seem clean (lots of hairs), bunkbed 'room' was very small (only main corridor for space). But did have nice sociable area at bottom which was heavily used during my stay.
Couldn't get a place elsewhere but here was OK. We had a very tight room. I think if you have the slightest middle age belly you wouldn't fit. They do a very good job for the space they have here.
The area around the hostel feels kind of shady, however it is really close to the shin-imamya station. The rooms are really small and there is only a curtain to your . They do have safety boxes though. their facilities are okay but there is also only a curtain to the shower . They have a router on every floor so the wifi is really good.
Fine hostel, but it's a shame the staff are too lazy/dopey to put some oil on the door to the dorm (it's very squeaky) and fix the padding on the heavy door (which bangs closed). Easy stuff that would make one's stay much more enjoyable
The beds were really very uncomfortable and the bathroom was always dirty. The dorm room concept is pretty cool though if you are traveling as two people, because you kind of have your own room, and the staff is nice.
Location was good, easy to find and very close to the JR rail station and subway. The staff were friendly and always willing to help out. Rooms were tiny and too small to keep luggage in and the beds were hard and uncomfortable!! The rice sacked pillows were something different!!! 6pm check in is way too late. Wouldn't recommend a long term stay here, but fine for a few days.
Very kind staff! We felt very welcome and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and inviting! Close to the subway and only a few stops from the liveliest areas! A great place to stay! :D
The hostel is pleasant, clean, safe and the staff are fantastic. A real gem for any backpacker.

Really nice place to stay in the Shinsekai area, which is a bit grungy. If you like that this place is clean with nice people.
