    Cosy, ambient atmosphere conducive to socialising if you feel like it. Spacious and private bunks. Friendly staff who remember your name. Interesting area only about a 20-25 min walk from Dotombori with plenty of things to see on the way. Definitely recommend. also the girl working in the cafe.. she seems happy and full of joy :)

    This place has what is so hard for alot of bigger hostels to get right. A great atmosphere! The staff are so down to earth and laid back. They offer you great advice, and really care about you and your adventures. It really has been my best hostel stay so far on my travels. They even have a slide, and a tandembike!

    One of my most memorable times in Japan was at The Pax and Osaka. It is located in the perfect area for food and quick nightlife. The dingy San Francisco of Japan (I thought). My favorite spot was the aithentic karaoke bar just on the other side of the alley (beware of cat poop, haha). The regular staff were 100% helpful with carrying luggage and fun to talk to. A place to make friends. I met some great people myself. Make sure to go down the slide inside the hostel. Overall a plus!

    What a great chilled place! I was there in the off season but still managed to meet some great people staying in the hostel. Staff are so friendly and helpful, really close to the tower so you can’t get lost! Tube station is around the corner and the train station is a 5 min walk. I got the train straight from the airport to Dobutseun-Mae then like I say a 5 minute walk pretty much down 1 road! This is how a hostel should be!

    One of our favorite hostels we have ever stayed in. A wonderfully welcoming and warm community. We made some wonderful friends! Really appreicated the beautiful space and coffee shop- so well done! Delicious coffee and baked goods. Awesome location in old Town Osaka- enjoyed being out of the tourist sprawl and getting a more local experience. Great night life, food and walking areas. Look no further, this place will make your experience in Osaka!

    The Pax was great- we wished we had stayed here for more than one night. So so cute, very clean, very safe, staff & guests were super friendly. This would be a great place to stay solo or with groups. Friendly for English speakers. This place had a lot of personality and we thought it was great

    Facilities-wise this is a great hostel with a really homely feel to it. The dorm rooms were very good and the common areas means you can meet people easily. I was there two nights over a weekend. One night there was no one around and the atmosphere was dead. The second night it was really buzzing with the staff cooking some food for us, so it really depends on when you get there I suppose. Walking distance to the area of Osaka where all the bars/restaurants are clustered.
