    Even though my stay was short, it was amazing. I would able to talk to not only the owners of the hostel but all the people that visit the hostel from the neighborhood. Everyone was so helpful and the hostel is not far from many places (Shinsekai, Tennoji). They also have a bar and some events that pop up here and there. I will come again.

    Mad Cat Hostel was AMAZING!! One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. The whole atmosphere is so cozy and comfortable. It feels like you’re spending the night at your best friends house. Rieko and Toshi are the best hosts ever! They were so fun and helpful with everything a traveler may need. Toshi even let me come play futsal with him and his friends. The bathrooms and kitchen were so new and clean. And the cute cats kept me company during the whole stay. Highly recommend, best in Osaka!!

    An absolutely lovely experience for someone who was new to hostels. Very clean and tidy, well equipped kitchen, nice showers and cozy communal area. Cats were cute and friendly once you get to know them. The host, Rieko, is super helpful and knowledgeable with excellent recommendations, and even introduced me to her friends to join them on a local football game - Bruno Mendes numba 1 best player! The bar is a treat, with a wide range of beers and good vibes. 100% would recommend and book again!

    I’ve been to Osaka about six times and this was by far the best hostel I’ve been in maybe in all of Japan. The design of it is really nice and from the outside, it looks deceptively small but it’s quite big on the inside! The facilities are great but the best part of it is the atmosphere. The owners, Rieko and Toshi, are so lovely and welcoming and they make you look forward to coming back to the hostel after a long day. Their cats, Maru and Kogo, are adorable too!!!

    This hostel really shines in it's cozy atmosphere, impeccable cleanliness, and all around amazing owners. It was smaller from what you would expect from a hostel but for me personally, that was a very pleasant surprise. Other guests were a mix of locals and foreigners who were both equally as fun and welcoming to be around. 😁 Stellar hostel would not miss, they also have Japanese beers on tap 😋

    Great hosts and great atmosphere . Felt like a home away from home with the infamous Maru and Kojo to welcome you . The bar is up beat and fun.

    So I recently had the privilege to visit Osaka and stay at The Mad Cat hostel and let me tell you that this is absolutely the best place you can stay at for a great value. As for the Hostel itself I was warmly welcomed by Reiko who introduced me to Toshi and gave me a tour of the place. It’s quite cozy but definitely has the warmth and heart . As you can tell by the name there are 2 adorable cats that roam the home but they’re sweet just like everyone at the hostel. Thank you Reiko and Toshi.

    Clean, economical and friendly staff (plus 2 cute cats!) I only stayed one night but enjoyed it. Only downside is that it's slightly farther from the city center but transit is easy to navigate. Would stay here again!
