Pretty cool place. You mainly stay here for 2 things - the location near to the beach/bars/clubs and the party atmosphere. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and around 10 minutes to Ocean Drive. The hostel does a good job of organising nightlife, club tickets, pool parties, pub crawls, etc and the bar has cheap drinks and is good for the pre party. Staff go above and beyond to help you. Rooms and bathroom are really small and cramped - barely enough space in the room for people's bags.
I liked it here. It felt like I was staying at my grand parents house in a way - an actual house. Old furniture, old style, old school. Not a bad thing. Location is about 15 min walk to the mall, but only 5 minutes to the Main Street with bars/food. Overall - an old feel but a sweet spot.
top location - right in the heart of temple bar and short walk to everything else. Super loud at night so don't stay here if your looking to relax - but great for a weekend away partying. laundry service was great but the common room lacked a bit of atmosphere.
I've stayed in hostels across Europe, Asia and Africa an this is one of the worst ive seen. We only stayed here as a last resort due to all others across the city with better hostelworld ratings being booked out. Dirty bathrooms, broken showers and beds, rubbish lying around, poor facilities and despite being above a pub, the pub is closed weekends. Only stay here if desperate, otherwise look elsewhere.
Not bad but lacked atmosphere as far as meeting people. Location is ok - not great.
Cool place. I pretty much had it to myself while I was there. Not a bad location(not great), but staff were helpful. Would be a top place with a few more guests to share it with.
The ideal please if you wanted to stay in a traditional Japanese ryokan but on a hostel budget. Good sized shared rooms, traditional bedding, Japanese gowns provided and they have a communal bath and shower as well as a garden to chill out in. Location is average tho - about 10 minutes walk to nearest metro, 20 minute walk (or 1000 yen cab) to main station and not really near any solid restaurants (closest is 10-15 min walk). Recommended on the experience, but stay elsewhere to be closer to town
Top place. Ideal location only 2 minute walk to the tram line and about 10 minutes to the main rail station. The major sites and the ferry port can be accessed from here within 10 minutes too. Staff were super helpful with town maps and directions and even helped me purchase J-League tickets. Rooms are spacious (not something I have come across anywhere else in japan). The best hostel on my japan holiday.
Top location only 1 minute from the Osaka loop line. Good solid wifi and they let me do laundry here too which was great. Rooms are small - not much space for your stuff or to move around. The common room lacked atmosphere. Staff were helpful. Overall pretty good but not my best one in japan.
Amazing location near nightlife and bus stop. Cool common room too to meet other travellers and chill out, rest and have a few drinks before a night out. Rooms were small - not much space for bags even. But a great place
Great location, lacked atmosphere, good security lockers

Nath, pip and the staff here are great! Still new, but once it is up and running it will be tops. Cool new bar/cafe too.
Helpful staff, location is ok, 3 train stops from the colesseo. Didn't really feel the party vibes that this hostel was known for. One of our showers in the room was broken, wifi was terriblly slow and our room was like a fridge at night because you cant turn off the air con. Average compared to others I stayed at in eastern Europe
Top place! The owner offers you free shots, wine and beer the second you walk in and gives you a good run down of the hostel and the city. They also set up a makeshift bar out the front which is a great place to meet other guests. Great staff, clean, stay here!
Nice place, really good location to the lakes.
Really liked it here. 2 minutes from train. Its abit of a further distance to town. Cool little garden bar to chill and relax with beers.
Enjoyed it here! If you have been staying in dorms for a few weeks and want a bit of a change and a chance to chill and relax on your own this would be ideal. Great staff who give you quality info about the city. Our apartment was 1 minute from the church - one of the major landmarks of the city. Recommend!
Top staff here. Great place! Cheese is the best!
Great place, quality staff, would recommend for sure.
Really liked it here. They let us check in at 4am and crash on the common room lounges. Great staff with good advice. Free pasta was pretty sweet too. We stayed in a private room which was away from the hostel - it would have been nice to know this as we would have stayed in the main room with the other travelers in order to soak up the atmosphere better. Hostel bar was ok but dies down pretty fast once the free shot was done.
Great view over the balcony to the lake. Staff were great, very helpful. Very highly recommend!!
Only stayed 1 night but was a great place. Peter was great!
Fantastic staff here, very helpful
Loved it here! Right next door to the fun pub which is great. Top staff, top location. I highly recommend.
