Really enjoyed my stay at Yamatoya, great location and in walking distance to dotonburi, shinsaibashi and ame-mura area! The staff were also incredibly friendly and hospitable and kept our luggage for free after checkout! The bedding was comfortable and reasonably clean however it wouldve been nice to have the blanket linen cover both sides

Thank you for staying with us , We look forward to seeing you when you come to osaka


Basically a hotel, and fantastic for the price. The room has a toilet, but washing is in the basement with communal baths, which were brilliant. Excellent location, next to a subway station and a very lively area. No hostel atmosphere or chance to meet people.

Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to seeing you next time.


The room provided for 3 pax is too small. Sound proof is also rather bad as we can hear the traffic outside even though we have locked the windows. It's over priced for this kind of facilities.
