Very nice, clean and confortable place. The staff was very kind. Nevertheless the location is not the best and I didn't like that they keep the door open 24h.


Very poor hostel. Uncomfortable and dirty. Bathroom in particular was filthy with mould scum and water which didn't go down the sink because of blockage. Go elsewhere.


Hostel is good for those who are only looking for a place to sleep in, which was exactly what I needed. Facilities were great and the bunk beds were comfortable. It is also great for those who want to be near Shin-Osaka since hostel is far from downtown Osaka. Quiet hostel and area and nice view outside in the morning. Not the hostel if you are looking to meet people and have parties. Facilities and rooms were clean as well. Thank you for the stay!


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.
