I stay in Showa for less than 3 weeks and I felt more like at home than in a hostel.Such a friendly atmosphere and all the guests and the staff became like one big family! If anyone has a problem with the location navigate!!!Location is in a pretty interesting area and perfect for backpackers.Highly recommend!

We didn't find too difficult to find it. I mean it's not easy to navigate in Japan but it wasn't extra hard to get there. It located close enough to the subway stations, about 7 mins by walk. The area is a little bit scary at night when homeless people are laying on the street. The room was OK, but... More

Do not stay here. I have stayed in 2 other hostels during our visit in Japan and this one PALES in comparison in so many levels. Location is hard to find, no clear directions in their website. Linens were suspect as I had a coughing fit all night. Poorly maintained showers (and I am using nice words here) The showers... More

I stayed here because I was desperate. It was cherry blossom season, I had spent 2 nights in Kyoto, but there were absolutely no beds left there. There were hardly any beds in Osaka, which is how I had the misfortune to stmble across this little place... Let's start with directions. Now, normally I am quite prepared, have google map... More

Spent two nights here came for the atmosphere got nothing but tired dirty looks. Staff are lazy and the place is a mess with rubbish in the kitchen stacked to the roof. The walls are so thin you can here other people breathing. If you want to use the wifi for any more then 30 sec at a time you... More

First of all, the location is hard to find. The hostel is old and noisy due to sound blocking is not that good. I will not stay this hostel again if i visit osaka again. I feel that other hostel/ guest house will be better than this one

When we arrived at the hostel the receptionist was hardly presented. We slept in a hutch the hostel is noisy. Flee. The only positive thing is the free coffee and tea and location near the subway. I travel a lot and is one of the worst that I could see.

I came here since my flight was cancelled due to typhoon. It's not the prettiest or newest hostel but I had a chance to get a hotel with 2000 euros for 3 days. I chose this with 61 euros for 3 days. What would I do sitting alone in a fancy hotel? Here people are very friendly! I'm not always... More
