    All the staff at this hostel were the friendliest and most helpful I have ever experienced. They helped us from day to day when we wanted to find cool places and even during an emergency they assisted us to reschedule our flights. Maddie is the best x

    Easy 10/10 for me. Definitely the best place I stayed in japan for meeting and hanging out with other travellers. The place is nice and clean, conveniently located, and has a cafe/bar downstairs to hang out and have breakfast or drinks. I made a bunch of friends, had a great time, and got a ton of travel tips. This place was the closest thing to the romanticized, idealized perception I had of backpacking. Big thanks to all the staff and guests there that got to know me

    Really enjoyed my stay here, close enough to hot spots in Osaka but in a really nice quiet local spot. I recommend it very much. Added bonus that it’s close to the train station

    Had a fantastic time at the hostel, staff was super friendly and accommodating. The café bar is super chill to hangout at and it even attracts some locals. Only troubles we had were walking through the fish market to get there from the jr station, a bit tough when on a hangover. Overall great time and very chill atmosphere, would recommend to anybody traveling Osaka.

    Very Good

    The main issue with the place is the lack of common spaces. They have a terrace which cannot be used if raining and the cafe downstairs is closed in the nights. Stayed in the shared room and it is the same place where hostel staff live. The kitchen is quite small and you only have very few tables. In order to get to the rooms you have to go up through very narrow stairs which make it difficult when you carry luggage. The place is very near a street market which can be noisy or even a bit dirty.

    Interesting experience here. The staff were absolutely fantastic and nice and social, though for such a new place the cleanliness and maintenance was below expectation. It seems that the staff try their best, but the support from the owners is lacking. Seems the owners care about saving money more than providing a great experience, shame really because this place has so much potential!

    If you are looking to party & stay at a super cheap location this is the spot for you. The hostel was very laxed & it seemed like the staff was there to party. I didn’t feel like the space was the cleanest & I woke up in the morning with a bug bite. Couldn’t wait to get up the next day & leave. This was our least favorite place that we’ve stayed at during our 3 week trip to japan.

    I've had my time around the block when it comes to hostels and this place was honestly not great for me. When I checked in all the staff and a few of the other travelers had gotten super drunk the night before so everyone was majorly hungover. The kitchen wasn't clean at all with dishes everywhere and the fridge was full of the staffs food so there was no place to put my food. The cafe in the hostel is meant to open at 10 and it didn't till 11. I felt like I was in a frat house not a hostel.
