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

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
