    Great, nothing to blame, could only recommend if you stay in Osaka. Takoyakis are amazing

    Can't fault any part of this hostel, was only in Osaka for a few nights but very relaxed evenings spent in Roots. Perfect after long days exploring.

    Pretty good place to stay. The only downside is that it is a bit of a walk to get to the train station and it's kinda a little bit away from the places I wanted to go to. I also wished that I would put my suitcase in a locker or even unter my bed, but other than that, would probably stay here again.

    Perfect hostel within walking distance of the main shopping district. Good privacy. Not a hostel with much social interaction but that’s generally expected in Japan.

    I was only there for one night. In a good location, ate dinner at the restaurant, good food and nice staff. Didn’t seem to have much of an atmosphere but then I was just looking for somewhere to eat, sleep and get up and explore the next day!

    The bathrooms were really nice but only curtains on the showers. The rooms are very basic legit just a bed and the curtains let a lot of light in. There was no communal lounge space or kitchen but the laundry was quite good and I really enjoyed the food downstairs at the bar.

    Cheap and cheerful! 5/10 minutes away from the Dotonbori area. This place offers great value. I extended my stay here purely because it was.lesd than £10 a night. Beds are clean. Facilities are clean. Would highly recommend.

    Not a bad hostel at all. Nothing to complain about, everything was as it should be. Not the best hostel you will stay at but definitely far from the worst. Good location also and a 7 eleven around the corner.

    DISCLAIMER - we stayed in this hostel during the coronavirus pandemic. This hostel was fine, the atmosphere was not great, but as stated about, we stayed in a 8-bed dorm during the coronavirus pandemic and the hostel was incredibly quiet. The beds were comfortable and all was very clean. Security could be improved, no lockers for any belongings close to your bed (there are some lockers on a separate floor of the hostel). Location was close to a train station but not really to any restaurants.

    One of the worst hostels we’ve stayed in for the whole of our Japan trip - and not even great value for money. The photos are misleading suggesting that you can use the kitchen in the photos, that is not the case. The hostel itself was so dirty with hair all over the bathrooms and thick layers of dirt and dust in the staircase. Had to ask them to clean the bathrooms they were that grim. zero atmosphere as no real common space except from a dirty room on the top floor. Wouldn’t stay again
