Peace House Showa and Sacchi (to which we had to move because of a neglectful management by the staff) are the dirties hostels I have ever been to. The average hygiene levels are lower than expected, it is by far the least clean place in Japan. The staff's English is quite pedestrian, not to mention the impossibility to keep the luggage in a safe place: no free coin locker was available and the rooms were so small that almost nothing could have been taken into them. Utterly dissatisfied.

Good atmosphere for backpackers, location can be a little difficult to find, very residential area( not exactly the best area of osaka). Staff are friendly. Front door is never locked FYI.


The location was great, a bit of distance from the station or main areas but fine if you don't mind walking. It was great to see this side of Japan, bit of a poorer area - it was all very interesting to see. This hostel is a house that has been converted, there isn't really a proper lounge/living area outside of the dining space. The walls are literally paper between rooms as well as to the sunlight, I would recommend ear plugs and an eye mask if you are a sensitive sleeper.

Was a little hard to find as the directions were not quite right. But once you get there it is a nice place. Very friendly.


Its location was in a residential area of OSaka giving me a good reflection of the local lifestyle The manager was very helpful in giving us instructions how to get around and orientating us to the subway, locations of food shops and shopping centres
