    Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Loved all the staff and made so many great friends. It's a perfect size so you get to know everyone there (if you want of course) and theres a subway, convience store and supermarket all less than 10 minutes walk away.

    Staff were SO friendly! always curious about my day (in a good way) and what I was up to while on vacation. Highly enjoyed the atmosphere and it felt less like a hostel and more like a capsule hotel :)

    Great hostel, friendly staff, met some very nice people! It’s a little far from transit, but no more than a 15ish minute walk. It is very close relatively to Dotonbori which is really great. There is also some great food nearby and the friendly staff can help point it out. The facilities are really great there all-around.

    Very cool hostel right in between Osaka castle and the nightlife district. Can be a little tedious to walk from the train station, but with the bikes they have available to rent, there's so much nearby to do.

    Lovely hostel albeit a bit far from subway. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Only quibble: change the hand towels more often by the sinks and in the kitchen. But small issue! Liala from London

    I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Mitsuwaya. From the moment I arrived the staff were very welcoming and helpful, the common area was cosy and clean. The general vibe of the hostel was very calming but guests still felt comfortable chatting together. The sleep pods were spacious and there were adequate facilities (shower, toilets, washing machines). The area was quite quiet in the evenings (being near a school) however meant a *sightly* longer walk to the station than I'd have liked (not major)
