    Close to everything! So much to see and do in surrounding area. Hostel is close to Tanimachi 9 chome. Hostel has four levels (I think). We stayed on the third floor. There’s no elevator, so make sure you like stairs. This hostel is quaint. Very cozy. Free wifi, kitchen access. Close to laundry facility too. Staff are multilingual, So communication is a breeze. Highly recommend this hostel. Great place to chill and very friendly. Did I mention it’s close to everything (Namba, Dontonbori, etc)?

    The staff at Tani9 Backpackers are the nicest! I only spent a night but my brief encounter with them was more than pleasant. It's also nicely located and very well-maintained. Akubi the cat only adds up to Tani9's attractiveness. I would definitely come again the next time I visit Osaka!

    Tani9 Backpackers is without a doubt a special place. Since I arrived, I felt immediately at home. The location is amazing, you can get everywhere on foot or using the wonderful bike rental service they provide. If you are a cat lover, this is your place. Akubi will make you feel special and loved, will play with you and make a few mischief that will cheer you up for sure. Everything at the hostel was always neat and clean. The staff is very attentive and the showers are amazing!

    Tani9 Backpackers is one of those rare guesthouses that instantly helps make you feel at home. As soon as you enter the lounge you can feel the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The staff greet you with a smile and do their best to help you in any way that they can, whether that be with a local map or recommendations on nearby places to eat. The facilities are great and the rooms themselves are comfortable. And of course, Akubi the cat is an adorable bonus! I highly recommend Tani9 Backpackers

    The hostel is clean. The Staff are friendly & could speak English. The area is safe as well. They have hot showers and western-style toilets (so no worries). The hostel is a 5-10 minute walk to Namba & America-mura (アメリカ村) if you're into bar-hoppin', live-houses (music venues) and shopping. On the corner, there's a 24hr grocery store that's CHEAP so you can save money & cook your meal at the hostel. They also have complimentary coffee/teas if you need a pick me up. I never had issues here.

    We had a lovely stay in a 2 person-private room (bunk beds). I fell in love with the photo of the cat already when I booked the room and it was indeed wonderful to have a cat around - he's really funny. Ina (the owner) and her Team are very friendly and helpful (they made a reservation for us over the phone, helped us plan what to do on a rainy day...). Free Coffee/Tea and a small but cosy common area are a plus too. Also great location - not far from famous market and dotonbori street! :) thx!

    Tani9 is located in a handy position in Osaka with Dotombori street a 20minute walk away. We had our own 4 person room above the restaurant next door and I couldn’t fault it. Was cosy but that’s Japan! Also the shower was banging!
