Property Description

HOSTEL&BAR LnK is a place where you can relax and enjoy an authentic Osakan experience. Upon setting foot into my inn, you’ll immediately feel at home in this cozy space. I pay close attention to details, and I hope that you’ll be able to enjoy the things that I’m passionate about: indie music, camping, freshly-ground coffee, and beer. This hostel was recently designed and built from scratch, so I guarantee that the amenities and facilities will make this a suitable second home for you. I’m also more than happy to help you find your way to any location in and around Osaka; whatever your interests, I can give you top-notch recommendations if you need any guidance.

I hope that you’ll visit and create unforgettable moments here with your fellow travelers.

My Guesthouse Story

In September 2016, I quit my job as a salesman, and I established HOSTEL&BAR LnK (Lodging & Kin). My guests usually ask me why I started this business in Osaka instead of Tokyo. The reason is because my hostel’s architect/designer was living in Osaka. He was kind to me, and his stylish designs were really appealing. We became as close as brothers, so I chose to establish my hostel here in Osaka. My next dream is to make more guesthouses around Japan with him.

    Great Hostel, Great Staff. The staff has a long list of recommendations for food and craft beer places around Osaka. Just be aware that the hostel office does not open until 4pm, so no early check in and importantly you can not leave your bags there before check in.

    Fantastic hostel in a convenient (but also quiet) part of central Osaka. Owner is super friendly, offering very thoughtful recommendations for meals / activities etc. and makes a great cup of coffee in the morning. Will definitely be back when next in Osaka!

    This Hostel is in a great location; you have quick access to the train station and it's just a few minutes walk from Nipponbashi (lots of anime). As for the hostel itself, it's well kept, and very low key. The place itself is manned by the owner. He's a great guy! Every morning I went down for breakfast and he made something different every time.

    This is a great hostel if you're not looking for a raucous time but the downside is the lack of social outlets. You do get to meet other guests when Taka, the owner, makes you free breakfast and coffee in the morning, which is ace! Because Taka solely mans the hostel, it's open at odd times (the hostel is closed 12pm–4pm so don't expect to leave your luggage between those times without making prior arrangements) but he gives great recommendations and was very helpful and welcoming

    Awesome hostel that is walking distance to Namba and Dotonbori. The free breakfast and coffee every morning was awesome, and the host was very helpful in recommending what to see and eat. Would definitely stay again!

    Enjoyed staying at this hostel, good calm atmosphere away from Osaka. As advertised it is about 10-minute walk from transport, facilities are clean and the staff are really nice. Unfortunately did not make breakfast any day but it is generous of them to offer. Very calm environment, not really a place to meet people in the common room but this may have been because we missed breakfast. Good value for the amenities.
