The location is the best part of this hostel as it's just right inside the shopping street of Dotonbori. You can have everything you need in the walking distance. The bad part is that the room is very small. I know in Japan the hostel rooms are usually small, but this is even smaller than expected. You can't do things...

One of the worst hostel I've ever been. The room was too small and cramped. Barely any space to move between the guest, not to mention to open the luggages. And the location was not too easy to navigate. We were lucky to stay for one night only before our departure to our country. Please search for another better hostel.

I stayed at a girls only dorm room with my friend. The kitchen/living room was small but I guess everything was simply clean. Staff was nice. But the bed I used was quite old, the center of the mattress was sinking and the bed make sounds every time I move so it was SO hard for me to go to...

good location in food district Osaka, however, its a very small building and the entrance/hallways are a bit narrow; the staff are ok for 1 or 2 nights, beds /dorms and bathroom are just fine, for the price do not expect anything extraordinary

In an alleyway amidst the shopping streets. It did take me a while to find the place as the sign pointing to the alleyway was a bit small - maybe try to look for a crepe place opposite. Friendly staff, lockers available, clean, but seems a bit cramped. Great for location and if you don't have too many things with...

I have stayed in many hostels in Japan and this place is really sub-standard. Stay as a last resort. Admittedly it was cheap but for the same price you can stay in a much better place. First of all, it's hard to find. This is because they don't mention that it is in an alleyway at the back of a...

Very basic no-frills hostel. Clean and in a great location but not without its problems. Firstly it was EXTREMELY hard to find, it's located in the bustling heart of Namba surrounded by dozens of pachinko parlours so a more detailed description of how to find it would have been useful. Access is via a narrow non-descript lane way and the...

My japanese friend told me to go to this hostel. I was really happy that I stayed there. Really nice staff, really clean. Different room for guy and girl. If I come again to Osaka, I'll stay there. It near the station and you can enjoy restaurant and amusement near the hostel.

The location I could say is really great. Very near to Non JR Namba station instead. However, it is really very hard to find it because it is located at a very dark and small lane. I spent almost 15 to 20mins and in the end thanks to the nice security officer that helped me and even brought us there....

The hostel is located on a perfect location surrounded by all the main straights and cafes. The beds were clean and comfortable. Showers and toilets also fairly clean. Big plus point was that it was silent at night and you didn't hear to loud nightlife sounds of Osaka. Big minus was the service. Lady behind the counter was often grumpy...
