I had a great time at Peace House Showa. The staff was friendly, I met cool people from all over the world, Namba was at walking distance and the facilities were great with complete kitchenware and fancy toilets. There was not much space in my dorm to store luggage though.

Peace House is located in what is likely the most curious and unique places in Osaka. Everyone I met was talkative and interesting, the atmosphere is great.

The hostel was great. Every time I spend time here, is like being with family. The staff is great and friendly, and they help out a lot with moving around the city. It is hard to find the first time, but people are so nice they will always show you the way. It's a great place for the price. The owner is fantastic, she will always find you a great place to eat. She will also organize an event, which is always a good change to meet new people. There is never a dull moment when I'm here.
Location, Part 1: The hostel is tucked away in a labyrinth of side streets that make it very difficult to find. I used google maps to find the location, went to the nearest subway station, and when trying to walk there (which in theory should have been a 10ish min. walk) I had to ask four people for help with directions. Location, Part 2: The hostel is in the same neighborhood as the Osaka red light district, Tobita Shinchi. Could be a pro or a con, depending on what you're looking for.
A nice little Ryokan style hostel, helpful staff and in an area where you can get everything you need. Much nicer than a plane faced hotel or hostel
Comfortable stay in peaceful place, quiet and relaxed. Could do with some small improvements to the bathroom, to add a little more privacy.
Guys kitchen are really ok, and I was so happy to be able to use safety box, internet access and meet gr8 ppls. But please add a sink in private room for lady and for men, I used toilet for changing room and to brush my teeth ! And a friend was drying her hair in same time a guy shaved face loool. But I highly recommand the place, near to subway and teain station, big malls, very japanese supermarket with food readytoeat, nice restaurants around, was also amaze to be in tradi japanese area :D
It was a nice and cosy place. The beds are not bad for a Japanese hostel. It was old but clean. The showers were good, however you needed to go through the living room to get there. The staff is really friendly but doesn't speak English very well.
This is a pretty crumby hostel, kind of like staying in someones old apartment. Kitchen is hot and stuffy, common room is disastrously unappealing. All I wanted to do in this hostel was get outside. Staff were friendly enough. Location is in an interesting part of town, though it is about 20 minute train ride/ 45 min walk to the action in town. Osaka is a brilliant place.. check it out but maybe not with this hostel.
A nice, cozy little place in a good location. The dorms are basic but the facilities - laundry, fully equipped kitchen etc - are excellent. Comfy beds, no lockers. The staff are helpful and nice. The place is small and the kitchen and common area central, so it's great for meeting friendly fellow travellers. The hostel is in a residential area a short walk from a major train station so it's really convenient, though you'll need to take a train whatever you're visiting. Good internet!
Hard to find so make sure you have Google map with you. The bathroom doesn't feel secured enough, only a curtain to seperate the space where you put clothes and stuff. No reading light for each bed, too. Friendly staff and good facilities, so you might still like this guest house. My friend, however, had a horrible experience here. So if they tell you to come to another place from the original house, run away.
