Hiro's guesthouse is located in heart of the Korean town in Osaka, a 10 minutes walk from Tsuruhashi station, they have a video on the website which shows the direction, just download it and save it in your phone! The ground floor is a cozy cafe, so yes there's a kitchen and yes you can cook at designated time! Second... More

Smack bang in the middle of Korea town, just staying at Hiro's guesthouse will ensure you have a great experience in Osaka. The location itself allows you to wander for ages and find amazing street food quite close by, and Hiro will hand write menus for you that you can take to other restaurants that are normally missed by foreigners...

Hiro's guest house is located in the heart of Korea town. The ground floor is a bar/cafe, where you literally step onto the Korea town strip, with all the amazing food and sites that brings. The bedrooms were spacious and clean, and it even had a lounge room and TV you can use for your down time. The best part... More

A few years back, a friend took me to the cafe Hiro runs on the first floor of his guest house. We had a great time drinking beers while eating various fried meats and kimchi we had purchased at the traditional Korean shops nearby. Since then, I had always wanted to go back and learn a little more about the... More

First, I want to thank Hiro again for being able to accommodate my friends and I on such short notice! The hostel is in the heart of KoreaTown in Osaka (how fitting, since we are all English teachers in Korea). It wasn't that far of a walk from Tsuruhashi and the directions there were very straightforward. It was very easy... More

Hiro's Guest House is in the middle of Korea Town, off the Tsubuhashi station in Osaka. About a 15 minute walk from the station, Hiro's Guest House is both a hostel and bar/cafe. He was very trusting and accommodating with our requests to keep our big bags at his place while we explored Osaka. He also kept the cafe open... More

Hiro's guesthouse in Koreatown was a little hard to find (in a large part, perhaps, due to our own directional incompetence), but boy are we glad we found it! Hiro's guesthouse is amazingly homely and laid back - the bunk beds are comfy and the toilets are clean. But the icing on the cake is Hiro himself and how amazingly... More

This is my first review on tripadvisor - hiro, apologies for it coming so late. Hiro's guesthouse is a nice little place tucked away in Korea town in osaka. The dorms are clean and roomy, and the toilets are very clean as well. What makes it really special is Hiro - he goes the extra mile to help people who... More

If you are interested in a super-friendly, value for money place to stay in a fascinating part of Osaka, where the blend of Japanese and ethnic Korean comes together to form a deliciously warm cocktail, then I fully recommend Hiro's Guest House. The area is really convenient, being close to Osaka Umeda station and the castle. There are plenty of... More

Hiro was a wonderful and flexible host, who was very accommodating to my spontaneous and constantly changing travel plans. His guest house has an amazingly chill atmosphere, and between the cool cafe/bar on the ground floor and the neat little living room on the second level it's the perfect place to meet fellow Japan explorers. As others have mentioned the... More
