    Great hostel. It's right next to a station for easy access to the main sights and more. Plus it has loads of great restaurants right within walking distance from Korean to Ramen and everything in between. The staff really make this place special as they are some of the most friendly people you'll meet. And the place itself is really clean and has many areas to hang out with others or just chill and read; whatever you'd like. Definitely recommend!

    HIPPO Hostel was one of the cleanest, chillest and most cost effective hostels I have ever stayed at. It was my first time staying in Japan and the amazing staff was incredibly friendly and social with myself and the group I was with. They offer a chill and easy-going atmosphere and are located in a unique area in Osaka right by Tsuruhashi station. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Osaka. I really enjoyed my stay at HIPPO Hostel. ありがとうございます

    I appreciated proximity to JR line, cleanliness, great showers and a very competitive nightly cost. Operator let us checkout of our bed a bit late as we were out and about the night before. He also offered communal facilities to us after checkout so we were not rushed. Hippo was a great start to our 2 week trip. Thanks!

    Super clean hostel. Only opened a month and a half ago. The hostel was pretty empty when I stayed there. The staff are super friendly and invited me out after their shift ended, it ended up being a pretty fun night. Close to the train stations and close to restaurants and convenience stores. Would definitely stay there again.

    The staff were really nice and helpful. A very friendly place overall. Very clean and modern. Great if you are looking for somewhere a bit more quiet than the norm but still has a good vibe.
