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.
love this hostel! it is in the most interesting area in osaka, lots of jazz bars and cheap shopping. a little hard to find at first but once you get to know the area it is in a great location

Old facilities and crowded rooms. Hostel in a doubtful neighborhood, difficult to find. The positive point be the price.
Hard to find, bad description. Dirty. No lockers, everybody can walk into the hostel without being seen. No information in english about the area. We wouldn't stay again! We actually tried to spend as less time as possible in there.
My only complaint was the lack of security. The staff were friendly and considerate, and I am even thinking of going back there. This hostel allowed me to sleep in peace when I wanted too, but I was able to party too. It was very easy to communicate with the other guests ,and that was wonderful. I was able to speak in Japanese if someone didn't know English. Some other people didn't rate this hostel so highly. But it worked well for me!.
Long term residents would get up and move about at random hours. Bed was really creaky and wobbly.
The intimate atmosphere at Peace House was awesome, and it was so easy to make friends because of the Hostel`s small size. Though it is hard to find at first, once you get oriented, it`s easy to get around Osaka`s downtown area. The staff at the Hostel were very helpful and friendly. I recommend staying here, especially for those aged 30 and below.

A little difficult to find in the dark, but excellent staff, facilities, and company to make up for it.
I loved my stay at this guest house, the staff were lovely and you can ask them anything and Harry always knows the answer! I got the chance to meet the owners and their new baby and they are wonderful. This is a fantastic place to visit especially if you want the opportunity to try out some of your Japanese skills!! It was lovely and the location was great! They were very accommodating, even though we kept extending our stay!! :)
