Staff were very friendly and helpful, location close to Shinosaka was good as well


good wifi reception, a bit tricky to get in. Good money for the value though


It's a little out of the Center of Osaka being on the northern side of the river. The accommodations were good and the staff were very friendly.

hi there, for what it offers is the hostel in my opinion too expensive. its off the city, hard to find and the beds were stone hard. i dont mind futons, but these were a bit too much. staff were amazing though:) everything else was booked out so i had to take this, in general i'd say: book somewhere else, if you cant, take it, in the end its nice enough for a night or two=) all the best=)


We had a really great time at the Shin-Osaka Tomato Guest House. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. It was very easy to find and had a good, relaxed atmosphere. If I'm going to stay in Osaka again, I'll definitely be coming back. Highly recommended.


I was passing through Osaka and I needed a place for the night because jet-lag I was very tired. The place is good enough for backpackers and low-cost travelers, good Wi-Fi signal, air conditioner in all the rooms and in the common places. The bathroom (where you take shower: in Japan it's different than restroom) has a shower and a bathtub, but during August it's very humid and hot and you can't leave the window open because it's in front of other houses. Good for the money i've spent.


I stayed 6 nights and it's all good. It's a clean and well-located guest house. I enjoyed the sunset along the yodo river very much! They had a free of charge yukata-try-on night on every Thursday. It's interesting and so unexpected to me.

Thank you very much. "YUKATA-try-on at Shin-Osaka Tomato Guest House" is my first time trying for guests. I'm so happy to heir from you that enjoying Japanese style. Please visit us again!


Location is fine. Little bit hard to find upon first arrival. But the girl on duty was very welcoming and kind. She helped me with travel info too. It wasn't a very happening place while I was there but I think that's only because not many travellers come to Osaka. As a place to kip for a few nights it's fine.
