I had a very pleasant 5 day stay at Tani9 backpackers. Location was convenient, staff were very friendly and helpful. The main drawback is having to go through the mixed dorm to reach the women's dorm, but this is more of an issue for the mixed dorm. On the whole highly recommendable.

I really liked this hostel. Good location in Osaka. If you wanted to lock up your bags or valuables you had to put it in the basement. A little inconvenient, but not a big deal. Overall a great hostel! I would go back.
I would totally recommend this hostel to everybody that stays in Osaka. The location is just perfect. Everything is close and the hostel is hardly 2 minutes walk from the subway station. This hostel is generally clean, showers are fine and the owner is super nice (so is all the staff).
I felt very much at home here :) if I ever stay in Osaka again, I'll definitely check this place again.
I loved Tani9 Backpacker, Ina the owner is an amazing person, first off I accidentally booked the wrong day as I was flying internationally and forgot the time differences, luckily she had room, didn't charge me and said they were concerned that I might have been lost :) The dorm rooms are spread out over two levels, one mixed and the other female only. The facilities were great, hot showers which you can select the exact temperature. Running out of words for the review wish I could write more
The hostel was good - quite narrow and as a result the common area wasn't very large, but there was enough room to sit and enjoy the free tea and coffee. I was allowed to stow my luggage before I could check in, the bed was very comfortable. As people have to pass through the mixed dorm to get to the one on the top floor there are no locks on the doors, but this wasn't really a problem. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I really enjoyed my stay here! The staff is super nice and helpful and the hostel has a somewhat relaxed and alternative atmosphere! Good location! 2 stations close by, several konbini and restaurants. In 15 - 20 minutes by foot you can reach Nanba and Amemura! Free coffee, tea and water Clean! Bed was clean, fridge was clean (!), toilets and showers were clean as well Staff speaks very good English and some speak German - no keys for the rooms ( but they offer lockers)

I have stayed here a few different times and am always made to feel very welcome. The rooms and beds are good and the location is quite nice, with easy access to the metro and not much of a walk to good nightlife, etc. It is a small hostel, but other guests have always been really easygoing and friendly, with a good mix of foreign and Japanese travelers. I'll certainly be back again and again!
Tani9 Backpackers Osaka is quite nice place to stay in. I liked design of the hostel, although the building is really narrow and you don't have much space in the bedroom. Localization is fine, it's clean and staff is nice and talkative.
Quite old facilities making the place a bit shabby. The girls dorm is 4 stairs up, the toilet on the second floor and you need to pass through the big dorm between them. Quite annoying. The staff is friendly and helpful and it's very clean. Location is fine
Really friendly atmosphere and very close to the best parts of Osaka
It was my first time staying at a hostel and I had a great experience. Living room area is kind of small, but it's Japan so space is a luxury especially in the city. I met some cool people from all over the place. Would definitely stay here again if I visit Osaka.

Very comfortable with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Definitely recommended
The atmosphere and vibe of the hostel felt like you were staying in someone's bohemian home. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with advice, which added to the laid back feel. The bathroom was small, and shared with many people, but it was never crowded. It was a quick walk to the main sights of Osaka, maybe 15 minutes to Dotonbori. Just down the street from the subway, which was only a few minutes to the major stops.
Thank you staff! I had a nice stay. Sushi was amazing!!! Best sushi I had in Japan😊 take care and see you next time! X
The two of us planned to stay for just one night... liked it so much we canceled the next hotel to stay longer.
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!
