I loved my stay at Tani9 Backpackers Osaka! Very nice staff, and the hostel itself is very cosy. It is very easy to meet other people and within a few minutes you are in the most lively areas of Osaka. I definitely recommend staying at Tani9!
Very helpful and friendly staff.
Close to the Tani9 subway station as the name suggests. Narrow layout, beds have their own powerpoint, lamp and curtains which is good. Staff are friendly. Common areas are small, doesn't have big hostel vibe, very personal and homely.
Really cool hostel with friendly staff. Very close to Namba and Dotonbori. A great place!
I really had a great time in this guesthouse, met awesome people, joined the 1st birthday party, learnt some japanese from Osaka..... I had the feeling that I was hanging out with a big group of friends. Ina is reaaaally sweet and the guy whose name I forgot is super funny and helpful carrying my heavy suitcase :D I will definitely go there again!!! Inasan~ hontoni ookiniiiiiii :) gracias!!!!!
Everything was good. Only that these was mosquito attack for 2 nights (i stayed for 4 nights). An inscect screen would be good.
Less than 5 min walk to the nearest subway station, and near lots of food options. About 20-30 minute walk to popular tourist areas. Location wasn't bad just didn't feel comfortable as a female going out by myself at night. The hostel has a different layout, you have to go through the main dorm room to get to the other rooms and bathrooms.
Pros: Amazing location within walking distance to all amenities/namba/dontonbori nightlife. Staff are extremely friendly, know you by name, took us to a gig one night. Little roof terrace to dry clothes, enjoy a bit of a view etc. Sturdy beds, privacy curtain, personal light, charging by top bunk. A very good atmosphere and the whole hostel went out one night. Considerations: No big lockers for bags. You have to walk through the big dorm to get to the female dorm.
This hostel has a really nice atmosphere - I stayed up to the early hours with people I met and we had a really good time. It is also nicely decorated with warm colours which creates a cosy feeling. Clean, and the girl who was running it was really kind and helpful. Easily reached on the subway, however, it is not near anything - the closest attraction is Dotonbori which is still 20 mins away. Kitchen is tiny and basic and hostel lacks facilities such as washer/dryer. Overall would stay again.
Ultra friendly staff and brilliant location!
All staff are very nice. I had a great time over there!! =)

Pros: very helpful staff; the location is also very handy. Cons: nowhere on the front of the property announced itself as 'Tani9'! While their directions were accurate, I walked up and down the street looking for the place
room quite small.....I can sit on the bed..but all thing OK!
Great place to stay. Staff are good English speaking, super fun and friendly and very helpful with directions and advicd. A great young backpackers hostel. Close to train station. I would strongly reccommend staying here. Thanks so much for your hospitality Ina! :) - Kieren Stewart-Roddis. Perth, Australia.
I really enjoyed my time at Tani9, very good location and super friendly staff, definitely will visit again.
The staff is very nice but I had an incident with my booking; I had to cancel it and they were not flexible with my situation at all. They charged me over 4,000 yen for not staying with them. It was a big problem for us because we were traveling on a tight budget.

The train station nearest it is no along the JR line, so I had to pay for the ticket, since it's not covered by the JR Rail Pass. The rooms were very small, hard if you're bringing a big luggage, but clean enough and with curtains on the bed to give a little privacy. The shower and toilet are also clean enough but small as well.
Homely, nice social kitchen/entrance area. I walked everywhere from here, good base staying near namba to get to Nara, Koyasan etc too. I was staying in the top dorm room, which was a little compact but had good sturdy bunks and room for a bag. Just a note, I had to walk through a dorm to get to the room, no one seemed to have any issues with this, but some people might find it awkward? For me it made for a more sociable atmosphere and you get use to having little privacy in hostels anyway :)
