Property Description

BEEHIVE HOSTEL OSAKA is a small hostel that self-renovated 30 years old buildings.
Located on a quiet street in the center of Osaka, will allow you an easy access to almost touristic points.
We offer boutique and homely hostel accommodation, which is truly owned and run by me(Taka) and my wife(Hiro).

#Concept
The place we want to make.

Just like the bees that returned to the nest after collecting honey,
they can soon relax with their companions.

We want to make a space where people traveling around the world
can come back to and find the connection with comfort and peace anytime.


Although this space is by no means special,
there is a sincere impression that exists only here, and a new happiness grows.

We aim to be such a place, we are Beehive HOSTEL Osaka.

#Roots
When we were in our twenties,we traveled around the world with a backpack on our backs.
We saw beautiful sceneries, spent time in various places, and experienced many cuisines.
However, the best memories were the people whom we met.

And, it was at the hostel where many encounters were born.
Where travelers from many ethnicities, nationalities and ages came together
from all over the world drinking with conversation and excitement over topics that never ran out.

We thought, "I want to make a similar hostel someday."
And so, a suitable building for a hostel was found in December 2014.
We dared to leave the life in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Taiwan
that was familiar at the time, and returned to the city of Osaka.

People in Osaka are bright, gentle, and very friendly.
Even with strangers they speak freely and quickly become friends.
There are many places to eat and plenty of places to drink that are surprisingly cheap and tasty.
Osaka who came back after a long absence was a pleasant and fun town
that you would like to recommend to travelers around the world.


What kind of hostel should we make here?
When we reached our thirties, we married and had children.
But even then we thought "I want to continue traveling until my death".
Enjoying traveling with my family and encountering backpackers.
We aimed to create a place where it was like a hotel, but the warmth of a hostel.
And then we finally opened Beehive Hostel Osaka.

However, we had a limited budget and our experience with DIY was elementary.
Although it seems unfinished but we hope with future travelers
that they can give us their opinions and advice on how we can improve this space.

Therefore, I think that there are many faulty places for the time being,

but I would appreciate it if you can acknowledge it.


We love travel, the mountains, bicycles and soccer.
Taka living in Hong Kong New Territories, China Shenzhen,
Hiro having lived 4 year residence in Taiwan,
Hong Kong--who came back to my favorite place, Osaka,
and a wonderful staff with a big smile are waiting for your visit.

    Beehive was the perfect spot for a few nights’ stay in Osaka. Conveniently situated north of Dotonbori and south of Chuo Ward, access to culture and entertainment is easy. Staff was wonderful. Lift to upper floors. Bathrooms clean and stocked with all essentials (no towels). We stayed in a room with bamboo mats and mattresses on the floor - RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE. Loved it.

    A very warm and welcoming hostel. I booked a private room and it was spacious and clean. There is a bathroom between each floor and shower rooms on the 6th floor - very well maintained. Takashi, the host, even invited me to a takoyaki party with his family and other guests. The takoyaki was super delicious and it was quite a memorable experience. Thanks for having me!

    I LOVE this hostel. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The owner/operators are lovely helpful people. The communal area downstairs is quiet and a great place to get some work done or eat a meal. The roof deck is great for taking in some sun. The shower facilities are very clean and well appointed. The rooms have little desks and good lighting, and useful lockers for valuables. The WiFi is strong. I had a great stay here. No complaints. The location is close to attractions and good food.

    Very kind staff. Clean throughout - private rooms and shared spaces, including bathrooms. Easy access to Sensaibashi by underground walkway if you don't want to transfer from that main station. Would definitely recommend to others for a simple, comfortable stay.

    Overall good hostel, stayed in 4 person mixed. Room only had heat with seemingly no fan or vent so room became stuffy fast. Could hear everything outside omg he street to the point that whole conversations three floors down were easily audible. Staff was great and very accommodating.

    Beehive Hostel has a pretty good location for sightseeing, with a short distance to two major subway lines. It's clean and has enough amenities that make a comfortable stay in Osaka. The staff is friendly, helpful, and accessible. I was a little disappointed that the rooms were not as they were pictured and were a little more run down, but not a bad value for the money.
