The staff were friendly, kind and helpful.. The place was not very difficult to locate as it was very near the subway.
Fantastic hostel, though very tiny. The building is only about 9ft wide, so the dorm on the 3rd floor acts as a sort of hallway or stair landing for the floor above it, you have to walk through that dorm to get from one flight of steps to the next. There are small wooden lockers above each bed though, and if you don't mind the coziness it's a great base for exploring Osaka. The front desk staff are very friendly.
Great location and amazing staff!! Would recommend if you like small, quiet hostels.
Nice place to stay, it's clean and the location is good. The rooms are a bit small though and for a tall person like me I sometimes felt like in a hobbit house. All in all it's a nice place!
The staff was so nice and friendly..so helpful :) the location was good, near station and 24 hours cheap store. I can walk to Dotonbouri and Namba. the room on 2nd & 3rd floor is the best, because you don't have trough the other room when you want to go to down floor.
It was a little awkward having to pass through the dorm room to get to the top floor, but the beds were nice and the showers were great. It's a little hostel, but the staff were very helpful, friendly, and personable.

Great hostel if you are planning to go to Nara, Osaka Castle and Namba Area. Very cozy feel. I think, you should improve the directions so it will be easier to locate as this hostel signage is tiny. Other than that, great value for money.
The staff was supernive and super flexible, although I arrived way later than planned as I had missed the plane.

Exceptional staff...very friendly and willing to help. Thank you, Ina, Emy and Shige. The location is great...I could walk everywhere. Very near the 24 hour supermarket...this is big plus for me because I can buy to cook or buy food ready to eat. With this supermarket, I was able to save money.
Good location with clean shared bathrooms and toilets. The staffs are the best part of this hostel as they are willing to help you in every way like how to get around Osaka, recommend some nice places to eat and travel to other cites. There's no elevator so if you stay in the 4 bed female dorm on the forth floor and have big luggage, it could be a little inconvenience.
Great place with awesome staff!
Nice place with great, helpful staff. Pretty basic, but if you're only in Osaka for a few days then it's a perfect spot to lay your head.
The staff are amazing here, easily my time in Japan staying at many hostels and these guys can't do enough for you. If you're a looking for a loud hostel, this isn't for you, It's very chilled and relaxed so if this is up your street, book up! :) my bed was next to the toilet which was the only con, I literally heard everyone going to the toilet which isn't the best things in the world! Ha! The location is about 10 minutes walk to the main walking street and shopping district. Thanks guys!
You would be hard pressed to find this kind of value for money in such a location, but thats besides the point! The staff are informative, interesting people and good to talk to. Had a fantastic time at Tani9 and in Osaka. Thanks Ina and Gen!!
Perfect location. Great hostel with friendly staff and good for meeting people. Would recommend!
Staff was really nice and helpful, the lady went to book me a bus tiquet on a Japanese website. Otherwise nothing to say, very nice hostel.
The staff was so nice and friendly! The showers are very clean as well! I stayed in the 8 bed mixed dorm room and it was a bit loud, but that was expected with the range of travelers coming in and out. The beds were comfortable but there is very little room in between them, additionally, each bunk has a sheet to give you a bit of privacy. One thing to note is that there isn't really a place for you to hang out with other travelers, it's more of a go out and explore, come back to sleep!
Very conveniently located however, the establishment itself is lacking convenience. There is only one sink for all of the guests and if you book the female dorm you have to go through the other guests' room to get to your room. Also the bunkbeds are custom-made and the bottom bunk has very little head-room making it impossible to sit on the bed and do anything (like repack or make your bed, etc.) The staff was friendly and helpful and the kitchen was a nice addition.
Very lovely little hostel, staff were great! Location was only a short walk to the centre of town. Free coffee was a bonus and the showers were amazing! Thanks Kazuki!
