I visited Osaka with my best friend recently and stayed here for 3 nights. We stayed in a twin room on the first/ground floor. There was a toilet and a shower room directly in front of us so it was convenient. The room that we stayed in was clean, and so were the toilet and shower too. I find the... More

Location is great next to Momodani metro station, which is easy access to Osaka JR and Kansai airport. Staff were very helpful in showing me how to get to tourist sites and restaurants. Best value hostel out of many locations I stayed throughout various cities in Japan.

The location is amazing. it's not even a hundred steps from the train station! It's near a Supermarket, a shopping street and restaurants like Mcdonalds and Mister Donut. Went with my family and my dad loved this place. We stayed in 2 rooms with double deck beds at the first floor. Just few things we didnt really like is that... More

The people are all kind and great. One of the staff often stays behind at night and chat with us and that really makes the hostel feels like home. Clean and neat. I find the toilet and the towel very slightly smelly and I hope they will improve this as soon as possible. The IKEA bunk bed in the dormitory... More

I do not typically start in guesthouses, as I generally prefer for our five star hotels. However, my significant other wanted to experience a Japanese guest house on our trip to Osaka, and this is where we stayed. The neighborhood it is situated in is quite nice, and it is conveniently close to the subway. I cannot comment on how... More

I spent 3 nights at the Bonsai Guesthouse having travelled for 3 weeks in Japan. The place is so close to the Momodani JR Loop line station I could see the trains, which believe me is great in large cities such as Osaka. Just 5 stops down the line to Osaka Castle. The guesthouse was clean, very efficient and provided... More

I know I may have just gotten lucky, but the people I met at Bonsai made my whole trip AMAZING. The hostel is relatively basic and quite little, but it's actually perfect, as you can't avoid meeting people! I stayed in the 8 bed mixed dorm and it was good for a hostel. I also really enjoyed the bonsai garden... More
