Currently downstairs watching one of my favorite movies while my favorite music is playing. This place really makes it feel like home. Will definitely come here again in future, which will be sooner than I thought I would!
The staff have been super helpful. The hostel is clean friendly and sociable. Free breakfast is included. Would definitely recommend to travellers on a budget. Free bike hire is amazing - we managed to see the whole city cycling.
This is a great little hostel with free bike hire, which saved us loads of money! The little pod beds are great and spacious. The facilities (including the little lounge) and kitchen are great for eating / making food to save you from spending lots. The staff had helpful suggestions and were extremely friendly to us throughout our stay! Thank you!
Stayed during the World Cup Rugby was on - busy with travellers moving around. Great little hostel with a young but relaxed vibe. Good location with plenty of convenient stores within walking distance, close to Osaka Castle, though not close to the busy shopping and entertainment districts. Free bike rental was ideal to get around - Osaka is a pro-cycle city. Rooms, toilets and showers are clean. Staff are young and helpful with good English-speakers. Stayed for two nights but could have stayed much longer.
Stayed here for some of our first nights in Japan back in December 2018. Staff spoke good English, and were very helpful when we asked questions. We stayed in an all-female dorm which had a wonderful solution of beds separated with wooden walls and a drop down curtain for privacy - it was like your own tiny little room with enough space to put your valuables next to you when sleeping. The mattresses were a little hard, but I think this was more of a cultural thing. The hostel also offers free bike rentals, so me and my friend had fun biking in the park close to the Osaka castle.
Great stay in japan style private family room. Very clean, nice staff at reception, bar on site. Osaka castle is in walking distance. Small shops near hostel. Great free morning cofee. Really enjoying our stay!
My partner and I stopped over for one night at this hostel. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly, the beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. There is free bike rental which we didn’t get to use because it was raining. If I come back to Osaka, I would choose CharinCo again!
My partner and I had a great brief visit. Koto gave me a great recommendation, and we felt safe and comfortable during our stay. Facilities were clean and convenient. I would stay again if the price continues to be great.
Really great hostel. Super clean, great common space, and great location. And super bonus: free bike rental, which makes getting around Osaka really easy. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly reccomend.
This hostel is so great. Love the private pod like beds, and hot showers with womens only stalls. (They even have conditioner!) The staff were so helpful when we arrived. We were a bit too early for check in but they set us up with baggage storage, wifi and free bike rentals until check in time. The whole place is super clean and their is a bar AND a whole separate chill space and kitchen. A plus guys.
