For japan a quite big hostel; everything was nice and clean but I like the atmosphere of smaller hostels better
Quite small hostel close to the JR railway station Kanayama; everything looked brand new and was very clean
Next to a JR station and quite cheap for a single room, but everything looks quite old and a little shabby. Only 4 showers for the whole hotel. Okay to stay for a few nights if you cannot find another place but there are many much nicer and smaller guesthouses in Osaka.
Really nice and not too big hostel. They've got everything you need and the staff is really helpful.
About 10 min to walk from the JR station, but major bus lines just around the corner; really nice place
Very nice and clean japanese style guesthouse next to the JR station. They had everything I needed: washing mashine, bike rental, wifi.
Outside the city center but easy to reach with train / subway
Negative: no lockers in the rooms; Positive: free wifi (peterpans, but very slowly), free pancake breakfast if you like to get up early (7am)
Positive: Just across the street form the transit center and about 10 min to walk to the city center, free pasta or rice; Negative: As kind of usual in Australia - no lockers in the rooms, you can use a locker for which you have to pay, you have to pay for using the wifi as well
Free wifi, but only at the reception and until about 11 pm; no lockers in the rooms, but you can leave valuables at the reception; deposits for everything
Positive: Free wifi, nice common area, many activities offered Negative: Only 4 lockers in a 6-bed-dorm
Positive: The hostel is outside the city center in a nice and quiet neighbourhood. The public transport to the city center is really good. They have lots of staff to offer: free breakfast, ... Negative: Some of the rooms don't have lockers. The rooms are quite messy; everyone left his/her staff all around the floor; you could hardly walk anywhere without stepping on someones clothes.
Situated in a quiet area outside the city center but some nice restaurants and bars around; public transport to the city center available; felt a little like home...
The Hostel is about 20 min by bus from the central station. The bus connection is really good, even in the evening. Once you get off the bus, the hostel is quite hard to find... really well hidden although it is next to the bus stop. Additional signs would be good.
