I stayed at Hiro's from the 12th to the 19th of January, and it was one of the best and most unusual hostel experiences I've had - I'm someone who is very used to big chain-style hostel accommodation, with elevators, room keycards and the like. Hiro's Hostel only fits 25 guests at one time, and unless you have a private... More

I would say this is probably one of the best experiences I had in a hostel. Hiro (the owner) is very accommodating and friendly. He even let me use his mobile for a local call (thanks Hiro). Everything is great from the bed to the sheets and the bathroom. I was curious with all the buttons. It was my first... More

I have to say, If there is one special thing about this hostel that stands out among the rest, it is definitely (effects: drum roll) Hiro. - He is very, very considerate, hospitable and accomodating. He will really go out of his way to help you out, i have to say beyond what is expected of an inn keeper. -... More

Hiro is your best friend if you're coming to visit Osaka! I have stayed at his hostel on two occasions, the most recent at the end of a bike trip across Japan. Each time Hiro has been a wonderful host, knowledgeable about both the popular tourist-y stuff as well as the more out-of-the-way attractions (in Koreatown especially). He will share... More

Actually getting there: Get off at JR Tsuruhashi station go through this indoor street mall come out and then you should see Korea town which this hostel is in. We got off at the Momodani station as it looked closer on google maps. Word of advice: get off at JR Tsurihashi station it is much easier! If you do get... More

Having stayed at Hiro's Guest House many times and then moved across the road to live in an apartment overlooking Hiro's, I consider myself somewhat of an expert on the place and Koreatown. Osaka is known as the 'Kitchen of Japan' for a good reason. Walking around the city, through the alleys and up and over each of the soft... More

The local station is very easy to get to from Hiro's guesthouse, but I can see why people have had trouble finding it, we used google maps which unfortunately was not the simplest route. The guesthouse is in the heart of Korea Town, there's a gate/arch at either end of Korea Town. There is a third one in the middle,... More

Gone there for 3 days and Hiro-san was very helpful for all my questions from food to locations. There's a small bar-cafe downstair that you can just sit down, drink, and relax. I talked to him about life and he wont be running out of stories to tell you haha. Book this place and you won't regret it! Peace Hiro!... More

Hiro is a really great guy who has traveled a lot to sample the best qualities that a good guest house needs to have. We felt very welcome at this place. The facilities are simple but charming, Have a drink at the café downstairs and chat with Hiro (super friendly and chill guy) for great recommendations on what to do.
