    Had such a great time here! The staff is extremely helpful and I met some great people to hang out with. Shu, one of the workers came out with us 2 nights and showed us around. The hostel is modern Japanese and very nice and relaxing. I’ve already recommended to friends!

    You’re literally a 6 minute walk from a station that takes you almost directly to dotonbori and kuromon ichiba market. The hostel itself has a very easygoing vibe. It’s modest and welcoming with friendly staff that are eager to talk with their guests. There’s always music playing in the lounge which I enjoyed and the showers were clean and spacious. I wish the beds were a little more comfortable, but they’re very roomy! Definitely recommend!

    The facilities far exceeded my expectations, the staff were incredibly kind and welcoming, and the setup of the beds made me feel like I almost had my own room. I also really enjoyed the terrace in the mornings/evenings. Atmosphere was a bit lacking but I think that was just the nature of the hostel not being particularly busy in the middle of the week.

    I was the most excited about Hostel Mitsuwaya than any hostel on my 1 month Asia trip, and rightfully so. It was an extremely convenient, beautiful and lovely hostel that I would come back and stay at in a heartbeat. The staff were amazing and cleanliness and facilities equally amazing. Situated walking distance from train stations and even the popular tourist site Dotonbori. I highly recommend this place!

    Stayed here during my first few nights in Osaka. The staff are by the far the best thing about this place. Very friendly and genuinely interested in your travels and always there to help. Rooms are nice, although they have a mechanical number lock which can sometimes be noisy when people come back into the dorms late at night. Free breakfast is nice and everything is pretty clean. Would stay here again.

    This is a nice little hostel with very friendly staff. Unfortunately I did not sleep well when staying there because the mattress was a two inch thick pad over a wood board and the pillow was likewise very thin. I slept poorly which made me very tired when I was touring the city. If the mattress and pillow were comfortable, I would give the hostel 10/10. But if you can't sleep comfortably, then everything else is beside the point.

    The location is SO FAR from public transit and you can use the JR Pass for the nearest station to hostel. The hostel it self is great and so safe however the 15 min walk up hill really kills you
