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.

Thank you for staying with us.


Great staff and hotel with excellent location. You can buy various day passes in the hotel, the staff even helped me book a taxi at 5:30 am. The reception is 24/7 unlike many hostels in Japan which is very helpful. The location is very convenient for you to have a good time in Osaka and travelling within the city. There are a couple of metro stations, train stations, long distance bus depots and airport bus stops near the hotel - very useful.


Japanese style hotel. Air conditioning didn't work very well, but nice room. Free tea and sweets in the room. Great public bath facilities. Excellent location close to the city center. More of a hotel than a hostel.


The staff was really friendly and very helpful, rooms are nice with lots of facilities for the money. Location is excellent - close to major station Namba and a very happening place like Dotonbori. The have a public bath facility and Kimono in the room in different sizes if you want to try it. The best place to stay in Osaka, highly recommended.
