    I enjoyed my time at the hostel. It had a very youthful and friendly atmosphere.

    Good location, simple breakfast but you could make coffee and tea. They have a PS3 to chill, as well as a guitar. The only annoying thing is that you have to make your own bed, else, everything was fine.

    Great guesthouse in a great location! Security was good with heavy doors to the sleeping areas that after hours could only be opened with a pin code. We stayed on the third floor, and with showers on the ground floor this was a tad inconvenient, but other than that this was a very pleasant stay with welcoming staff and good facilities.

    Good location only 10 min walk to Osaka Station. The only Shower facilities are on the ground floor but they are good and clean. The space between bunks is also very small but it is value for money.

    Very Good

    This hostel has a really lovely common room with a great kitchen. However, the shower room wasn't very comfortable and was pretty cramped. There were limited wash basins for the amount of people who stayed there. Overall, it was just ok.

    I think this is the cheapest place in Osaka so you really can't expect much for 1000Y per night. The only issue is the sleeping quarter is stuffy and dark and it smells like they don't air it out consistently.

    OK place but the showers are located right next to the kitchen and not in each floor which is highly inconvenient and there are too few of them. Not enough toilets either on each floor. Beds are OK and Breakfast is toasts with butter or marmalade. Free coffee and tea is always welcomed.

    The rooms are listed as being smaller because essentially 2 big rooms branch off. But they share 1 toilet and luggage room so really it’s a 24 person room not a 12. Not a lot of privacy at all and security is pretty terrible, too many bags meant they were all just piled up on top of each other. Then the door wasn’t accepting the code so after being woken all night someone just wedged the door open for the next few days. Incredibly hot and stuffy rooms.

    Compared to the other hostels in Japan this is very basic. Advertised online as a party hostel but is not. Located a 20/25 minute walk from the train. With humid conditions during the summer the hostel is very stuffy and the air con was turned off during periods of the day. Also showers are the 1st floor next to the kitchen which was again inconvenient. Free breakfast is very basic, it's just toast with jam/marmalade. Ok but would not stay there again. Staff are friendly though.
