    This hostel is straight up amazing. The staff were phenomenal, the bed was hands down the MOST comfortable bed of my whole trip to Japan. I even left my favourite pair of socks there and not only did the wonderful, amazing staff find them but also posted them to my next hostel and returned them to me! How amazing is that?! Seriously if you want an incredible hostel to stay at in Osaka J-Hoppers is number 1! :D

    It was a little bit cold, but the building is nice and super close to trains. It was the first time I had to make my own bed in a hostel, but the beds were comfortable for Asia.

    Very nice hostel but no elevator for top floors so it would be stressful if you have big luggages

    Stayed over at this place in Osaka for the first time, lovely place. Staff was helpful and it was near streets where there are lots to chose from. Near a train station away from the main city and easy to access other places.

    It was a great stay overall, I was there over the New Years period and I found the social atmosphere to be very much lacking, even though I went out of my way trying to find a hostel with a party scene/vibe. I had high hopes seeing it was over new years but it was very quiet and had to look elsewhere for the party scene. Apart from that the hostel was great, good kitchen and table area, cheap and efficient laundry, great location, close to train station, fantastic and friendly staff.

    Really good hostel with lots of events on to meet people at. The staff were very friendly made sure I had an awesome stay, was even allowed to leave my luggage there an extra day while I stayed outside Osaka (Mt Koya) for a night. Really good facilities and the basic breakfast was good to have too, only grip I have is that the beds weren't capsules like most other hostels in Japan, but regular old bunk beds. Pretty central location in Osaka and easy to reach most places youd want to go via Train

J-Hoppers Osaka Guesthouse says

I think what makes us special is our events where we help our guests to experience the local way of life. For instance, on Fridays we have an international exchange party where you can mingle with the locals and have a chat. Wednesdays and Sundays we take everyone to an izakaya, a Japanese-style bar, where guests can learn the Japanese way to drink. There's also walking tours to places off the beaten path.
We're about 15-20 minutes' walk from the Kita area, which is one the main parts of downtown Osaka. I also recommend exploring our street, it's a quiet shopping area with lots of restaurants and bars.
