I spent two months at Hiro's and could hardly have had a better stay. I immediately felt welcome, and quickly felt at home. I found Hiro's to be a home away from home, a place where I could leave my things, enjoy a good night's rest, and feel at ease. Against the stress and fatigue of travel, Hiro's place provides...

I spent a week at Hiro's after moving a round a lot for 3 weeks. His guest house is the perfect antidote for those looking for somewhere to relax and take life slower! A very cool cafe area welcomes you, situated at the heart of the bustling Korea Town marketplace. It's ~10min walking distance to the nearest train station, but... More

A friend and myself stayed here during our visit to Osaka, and this place remains one of the highlights of our trip. We stayed in the private tatami room, which was very comfortable, and in a more Japanese style (futons that you fold out to sleep on, and then fold up during the day). The facilities are clean and well... More

This is the place I come back to in Osaka for something that is hard to describe - a feeling like home. Hiro has created a place where you feel really relaxed - just like you are living in Osaka's Koreatown. Along with Hiro's local recommendations for dinner, you'll get a real Osaka experience here! I will definitely be back... More

Me and my mate Travis stayed in Osaka at Hiro's guest house for about a week and we have to say the experience was amazing! Hiro was so helpful, kind and considerate.

Room: We spent four nights here and had the whole place to ourselves for three nights. We stayed in the private tatami room which was spacious and got a lot of natural light in the daytime. The shared areas were clean. Service: As we were the only guests, we only saw Hiro, the owner once, but he often left us... More

I stayed here for 6 nights in total and overall it was a very good experience! Hiro is really laid back and friendly with lots of good advice. Advice included what to order at a nearby Okonomiyaki restaurant, very tasty! The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The bottom floor is really cool cafe style hangout area so it was easy...

I stayed here during the very busy Golden Week and was not disappointed! Hiro was kind enough to wait up for me until almost 9pm for check-in as I had come from a busy day sightseeing in Kobe. He was very nice and very helpful, immediately showing me some good spots to eat since I haven't had dinner yet. The... More

Four friends staying at Hiro's for three nights, we were greeted by a friendly face, lots of useful advice and recommendations for the area, and a wonderful room! Stayed in a four bed room with surprisingly comfortable bunk beds and clean bedding. In fact, everything was clean which was a welcome surprise! A rarity amongst hostels! Thank you so much... More

It is approximately 15 minutes walking distance from the train station. Pretty clean. Sheets and blankets are provided. We had 5 people going there in total, and we pretty much owned the 3rd floor since no one else was around. The owner is a Japanese Korean... make sure you ask him where to go for food because he got great... More
