    I've stayed in dozens of hostels in my life and this one was by far the cleanest and most well-organized of all of them. Only downside was that I couldn't check in late (past 10 p.m.) but it was understandable considering how small and quiet the building was.

    I had a great time staying at this hostel. It is only a few minute walk from the train station and it is only one stop away from Umeda. There are some eateries and convenient stores around the hostel so you don’t have to worry about getting food when you are hungry at night. The owners are so nice and helpful. I would definitely come back and stay at Hostel Kai when I visit Osaka again.

    Nice and traditional all wood house. Lots of raw timber with traditional matting if you want a change. Aircon takes a while to get going. Staff were amazing and were good conversationalists since they've had international experience. Place may Can tske getting used to if you arent used to being in an old house by yourself :) we got there in the enf though lol. Also a little walk to the JR station but not far when you get your bearings.

    Staff was great. Very helpful with a problem we had. Close to several train stations. Cozy and warm. Tight spaces, not really much of a common area, just a tight room with some seating. Stairs were so steep! Could be a little noisy- sound carries. Smaller bunks that other places we stayed in Osaka, but a good place to crash if all you want is a place to sleep. Lockers available outside the bunks,

    This does not feel like a hostel at all. the owner is really friendly and helpful. he is always downstairs, ready for a chat and willing to show you the best places to go for the day. it is a really quiet place. Ideal for when you come back from a day of doing crazy touristy things and just want to relax. it is situated close to the JR line and 2 main train stations. I would definitely recommend it to someone who doesn't want a crazy busy and noisy place.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had a women only toilet, big plus. Unfortunately, staying there in autumn/winter is really cold.

    The receptionist was really kind of rude. BAD LOCATION. Really expensive, you can find something way cheaper and better. I stayed 1 night and changed after. Check out really early. It had so good rating but at the end I just felt so disappointed. Stay near Namba and thank me later.
