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.

    This hostel is incredible! Such a beautiful interior with a home-y feel. The owner is so helpful and able to provide you with recommendations and help as needed. The showers and bathrooms were very nice and everything was clean and well-kept. Due to curtains around the beds, the dorms offered adequate privacy . It was easy to get to most places in Osaka, especially as it was easy to get to the subway. The only downfall was that I didn't see any lockers. I would definitely stay here again!

    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!

    Nice relaxed atmosphere. My room was very clean, spacious and comfy. The hostel is in a calm area but only a 15 minute walk to busy neighborhoods, and there were some nice cafés and places to eat nearby. The owner was aloof at first but kind with good recommendations; and he makes a nice breakfast (and great coffee!) in the morning, which was also a great way to meet other people staying at the hostel. Not too much mingling amongst guests though.

    Very lovely little hostel! Nice beds, showers, coffee. The owner is really nice and we had a good conversation. My only problem was that the upstairs toilet doesn’t have soap or a trash can in it, haha.

    Property was really cute. But the towels could be softer and a trash can in the room could be great. Otherwise enjoyable experience.

    Location was near some restaurants and a theatre but only so-so if you’re hoping for convenience to major train stations. And the staff wasn’t particularly welcoming. Clean, so fine for one night’s rest.

    Hostel is very quiet. Atmosphere is relaxing if you want a peaceful night. The guy who runs it is nice but a little bit socially awkward. He didn’t greet me at first.

    The hostel is really clean and was decorated well, especially the communal areas. The room we were in was spacious. The location is good, just a short walk to Namba and a bit further to Dotonburi. Not very social - no-one in the communal area on an evening. The bar was open but we had to approach the owner and ask him because he ignored us. He also didn't know how much we were due to pay and asked us for 3000 yen more. An honest mistake but he didn't seem to know what was what.
