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.

    Lovely hostel with a great owner. Really close to Dotonbori and with loads of great restaurants very close by. Really close to the JR and Metro station as well. Bar area of the hostel is really beautiful, and a nice area to socialise and meet people. Beds are comfy and the shower and toilet facilities are very good. There isn't a laundry service that I can see but there is a laundrette very close by so not a problem. Would highly recomend this Hostel.

    Really nice hostel with a very chill vibe which feels more like a home. The location is great, close to the subway and an easy walk to Namba and Shin-Imamiya stations. The owner had lots of good tips for shops, cafes and restaurants, and day trips. He also cooks a really good breakfast for guests every morning which is a nice way to meet people. Great facilities and kept very clean!

    I stay at this hostel for a week and it was a great place to rest from the busy life in Osaka. It was a bit like home. The owner is very helpful and easy to talk to. And he makes really great coffee. Concerning the location : it is 10min walk from Nankai station and it is really simple to get there on foot follow the nankai line. Two negative points : no kitchen or common room so when I woke up early or too late I had to buy some coffee somewhere else and there are no curtains in the room

    My girlfriend and I stayed in a private room for three nights and absolutely loved it. The owner, Takfumi, is a lovely guy and you can really feel that he has put his own personality into the place. Breakfast and coffee were great and we’d thoroughly recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Feels more like a hotel. This place is a good choice if you're looking for a quiet place near attractions like Dotonburi. The owner, Taka, is friendly and you can have a chat with him. Besides that, there isn't much of a social atmosphere as guests keep to themselves.
