Property Description

'Honestly, my favorite hostel in the world.
Just stayed there for the 3rd time, atmosphere is amazing, very friendly staff,
the hostel is close enough to city center but not in it,
so you'll get the vibe of a really cool quite japanese neighborhood.
The building is a very clean Japanese style building with a lot of art and cool decoration,
also the cafe attached to the hostel adds.
Over all, if you're visiting Osaka you have to stay in Air Osaka hostel.' - A guest

    Quirky and wonderfully decorated little hostel. Only stayed one night (originally just as a place to rest after my flight) which definitely wasn’t long enough. I admired the personal touches from the staff and other guests displayed throughout the hostel - it made me smile, even when I was on the loo haha. Bed was super comfy and of course I can’t fault the privacy curtains on each bunk! Amenities were very clean and the staff are awesome (s/o to Roni)! Wish I could have stayed longer!

    My boyfriend and I stayed at air hostel for 3 nights and we absolutely LOVED IT!!! We wish we could have stayed longer. It is in a lovely neighbourhood of Osaka, you will feel like a local. It is a lot quieter than in the middle of the city, exactly what we wanted, food options nearby authentic Japanese at local prices. The hostel has board games (definitely recommend the naughty jenga) and instruments, as well as a bar & cafe. Thank you to the volunteers :) legends !! Love from Australia & USA

    This place had to grow on me as it’s a work in progress but the owner &staff are welcoming. The beds are firm but comfortable. The location isn’t ideal if you want to be close to Namba/the main tourist stuff but it is a short subway ride. Main issues were w/ the bunk beds which were homemade & had some movement to them when getting in or out & sound travels really easily so I could hear everything that happened in the hostel. Room had locker with key. Overall happy with stay.

    Great atmosphere. Personable staff. Place could use some home improvements. Close to 100 yen sushi and a subway station making it easy to get around.

    There was zero security and the place didn’t feel very clean. The kitchen was crowded and difficult to use. The place felt a little bit run down. However, the bed was comfortable and it was close to a supermarket and a great sushi restaurant.
