Very friendly staff and great location! Common area is quite small but still a good place to meet fellow travelers
It's a very small place in osaka, but the people and the staff were so kind that it was totally worth it!
Lovely helpful staff - you are given a really useful map with lots of local stores pointed out and they are all happy to make suggestions and recommendations. Location is good - easy to get to Nara by train and a short walk to Dotonbori street and Shinsaibashi. No keys - just a code for the front door. Excellent AC in the four bed female dorm. Would recommend!
Great relaxed atmosphere and really excellent staff who made us feel at home. The dorm was a bit warm at night and the station is a short walk, but in general the location 15 minutes from Namba is great. Would definitely stay here again!
Amy was very friendly and provided us with heaps of help!

3 great things about Tani9: location, wifi and air conditioning. HOWEVER: I didn't feel very safe in this hostel at all. The main door is only locked by a dodgy key pad, and there are no locks between rooms. Because of this, and because there were no small safes provided, we had to carry our passports around. Also the shower is ridiculous. The area to get changed outside of the shower is only protected by a curtain that doesn't fully close, so it's not very private at all.
Please consider setting up a branch hostel nearby so that we can book a bed easier when we wish to come back to Osaka.
The best hostel in Osaka with the best location, served by the best people.
The shower room curtain on the left is a bit insecure, the nails came loose.

Great stay, though quite cramp, it adds to the cozy atmosphere in the hostel where you get to meet many others. Location is fantastic, 2 stations away from the heart of Osaka (Namba). Thanks!
Really enjoyed the place, totally authentic and liveable rooms and common space. Just a nice change to your boring old hostel! Would recommend 10/10 times
A good boss Ina with a helpful assistance called Emi. A hostel with the best location and reasonable price in Osaka. I will pick this hostel as my first choice in Osaka, better than staying in a hotel. I advised Miss Ina to raise the price and charges.
Thanks for the great stay, totally recommend that place to everybody that travels to Osaka. Great location and very helpful staff. Felt a bit like home.
Very nice small hostel. Walking distance to many major attractions of the city. Don't have to take train or taxi from the club since you can just walk from there. Dorm was clean with personal light and socket.
I enjoyed my stay at Tani9, i met new friends, and enjoyed the intimate common space(the kitchen has lots of facilities)! going out partying was just few train stations away! I slept in the female dorm on the upper floor which was tiny but lots of things compensate for it - like having a comfi and private (curtain) bed, and access to the roof. Overall i really recommand this place!
Great place if first time in Japan or Osaka. Good location, very nice staff and relaxed easy going style. Good showers and coffee. 24h shop, subway and coin laundry near.
Not the craziest location, but it is a very close walk to a subway line that lets you access the rest of Osaka relatively easily. If you're like me and love walking, it's short 15-20 minutes to get to the famous Dotonbori and Namba areas by foot, which is immensely fun at night. Osaka castle is close by as well. Staff was super friendly and fun to talk to in Japanese, but they can do english as well. Visit the nearby owl cafe if you can!
Overall, we had a good stay here. Lovely vibe, great coffee machine, good locker boxes by bed, handy location (v close to subway 😊), handy map and yummy places to eat surrounding hostel. We were in the mixed dorm (middle floor) and it was very noisy at night, but that's more the fault of the occupants than the hostel! Decent place to stay if you have a couple of nights in Osaka.
Thankyou for a great stay! The staff at this hostel are amazing!
One of the best hostel experiences I have had, ever. The couple who run the hostel went out of their way to help us, and were so lovely. The hostel itself is really nice, very peaceful and also beautiful (the kitchen and bathroom are both nicer than the ones in my apartment!). I would definitely stay here again, I was sorry to leave after only one night.
