First of all, for the tall people out there I'll talk about some of the height specific problems at the end of this review. The location of this guesthouse is fantastic. Some reviews say that is not located close to shopping and Osakas main attractions, but that's simply not true. You can walk to Hep FIVE and the Umeda Sky... More

First thing you should know is that there are 5 floors and no elevator. So if you're like me and have heavy bags, being placed on the 5th floor is somewhat of a nightmare. Also, showers are only located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and the 3rd floor doesn't have toilets. So if you're staying here be prepared for... More

Very friendly staff. Clean hostel, good kitchen facilities and great location close to the train station. Shared a twin room with no en-suite facilities, although there was a toilet and sink unit on the 4th floor there was no shower. Internet access on all floors. Air con in room but was not very effective. I would definitely recommend this place... More

We went for our first trip to Japan and stayed 2 nights in a private room. There were no bath on our floor and no towels for us. The walls between the rooms were very thin and we could hear everything. That meant we didnt sleep much at night, since many were coming home from bars/clubs. But the staff were... More

We arrived here but found it to be booked out. The guesthouse staff went above and beyond by phoning around the nearest hostels/hotels and helping us to book a hotel online. Judging by the other reviews, J-Hoppers is not to be missed.

Stayed for 3 nights at j hoppers and it was a great experience. Rooms and facilities are clean and staff are very friendly. Went to one of the international parties hosted by mr yano (party animal) had a great time and woke up in my room having no idea how I got there :)
