    My favourite hostel I stayed in Japan, you have to stay here! Hiroshi was so lovely and helpful to me when I checked in and gave me great recommendations. The hostel itself is so clean. However on our floor there was only one shower and I can see how that might cause issues during high season. The beds were super comfy and I love the privacy of the pods which were surprisingly big. The hostel area is so close to everything and I walked everywhere. I will definitely be back!

    I can't say enough about the staff here, such great and fun people to be around. It was a quiet week when we stayed at Pax but we found delight in conversing with the staff and even going out for drinks with them. Highly recommend this hostel not just cuz its location is great but for the friends you'll make during your stay. Shout out to the staff, Kagaho, Shin, Hana, and Hiro! Hope to see you again soon.

    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!

    Had a great stay at the Pax for two nights! Super cool spot with really friendly staff. Hiro and Hanna gave great recommendations for things to do in the Osaka area. Unfortunately, there weren’t many other people around during my stay. Off-season time of year. I bet during the busy season this hostel would be incredible! Great lounge that is a record store/cafe. Would definitely stay again!
