Property Description

FREE / DISCOUNTED BIKE RENTAL FOR OUR GUESTS!
Chari is the street name for “bicycle” in Japanese. It’s what you’d call that old bike you hop on to meet a friend for a drink in town. At CharinCo Hostel, we’re all about seeing Osaka as a local would.

The city has a convenient train system -- Dotonburi, Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka Castle, and many landmarks are all accessible via public transport. But we believe slow traveling through the city on two wheels is the best way to take in all the sights, sounds, and flavors of Japan's food capital.

We have bunks, traditional Japanese tatami rooms, two chic lounges (serving ice cold beer), and, of course, bicycles for rent.

Our incredibly friendly staff knows a thing or two about Osaka and are happy to point you to a good time around town. But they also understand that the adventure is where your Chari takes you!

CharinCo is located right in the middle of the action. We’re just 20 minutes by from Osaka Station, and a mere 10-minute’s walk from Osaka Castle. And the rest of Osaka can be reached within 25 minutes away by bike. View House Rules

    Couldn’t have been better. The staff were very friendly, exciting and gave great recommendations. Very close to a metro station but I could get everywhere on bike. Facilities and bed were clean and comfy. Loved the free breakfast and bike rental. Best hostel I’ve stayed in!

    Was a really good place to stay, easy to get to from the station and not too far away from the center. The staff were really friendly and always ready to help. The hostel was clean and tidy, the kitchen was brilliant excellent facilities and you could even rent a bike free of charge for the day and go to Osaka castle which was very close by.

    It was a lovely hostel with comfortable facilities & a simple breakfast. Beds, though a little thin, had ample space for storage under the bunk. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay!

    Breakfast was nice, though simple, and the front area with where the check-in and breakfast is served is nicely decorated and relaxing. Dorm-style beds are surprisingly private and comfortable. All toilet facilities are clean. Overall nice stay. Close to the castle but not super close to the rest of town, but it is always pretty easy to get around on the trains.

    Overall very good hostel. Nice common room, kitchen and bar. Balcony by the common room is nice. The female dorm is nice, compfy bed and enough space within the "capsule style bed". Staff was friendly and offered free night walking tour and info on events. Location near subway, 7-Eleven and some restaurants, but not in city center. Female showers had pincode lock. Tiny lockers were only on ground floor, so not great. Clean facilities and showers. Okay atmosphere, but most people stay in dorms.

    Location is pretty out of the way to downtown but the free bike rental is nice. Very clean facilities as usually things are in Japan. I guess the atmosphere really depends on who is staying there at the time but there is a nice space at the bottom to hang out. There were a few nice staff but one that was kinda pushy and just rubbed me the wrong way. Overall a nice place if you don’t mind not being in the thick of the action part of town.

    Lounge area was good with full kitchen, more chilled up here and meet other lovely backpackers. Bed comfy, but if you are on the top bunk the light/emergency light keeps your area really bright all night. Social bar ok, the girl working it at night made it uncomfortable. Think she prefers lads to talk to.

    They dormitory is terrible if you’re on the top bunk. It’s a big bunk which I thought was good, but there is nothing to block out light coming from over the walls of your bed, so any bed lights someone decides to turn on at 1 am is basically a flashlight to your face. They also have an exit sign which was right in front of my cube shining down on me. Couple that with a drunk moaning and coughing up stuff and spitting, a guy snoring, and the thin beds on plywood and it could have been better.
