Really welcoming hostel. It takes a little finding down a small side street the first time, but it's really nearby to a couple of metro stops, and not far from the central Osaka / Umeda station so this means you are well connected to all points around Osaka. The staff are lovely, the central lounge and kitchen area is really... More

It was quite hard to find this hostel at night. Stayed in the female dormitory. There are 4 pax. They provide free locker to store our stuff. There's also shelve to place our belongings at our bed. It's really comfy and private. It's a pity that we only stayed for 1 night. The hostel is about 5 min walking distance... More

I stayed in the 4 bed female form for a night but it was the highlight of the hostels in my trip. It was a bit hard to find the guesthouse but the instructions given were pretty detailed. The guesthouse is a remodeled old house so it retained most of the features of a traditional ryokan, with paper walls and... More

We were a group of four who booked the Japanese-style Quad room. It's wide enough for us, with ample space to put our luggage on. The room was clean; it'd probably be okay to just lie down on the tatami mats even without the futons (don't get me wrong; we love the futons). We were lucky that there were no... More

The location of this hostel is good as it's near to Fukushima stations (both JR & Hanshin line, in 5 mins walk), and actually it's less than 1 min walk from Shin-Fukushima station (JR Tozai line). As it's near to these subway stations, it give us easy access to travel around the city or further. The hostel was revamped from... More

I spent about 5 or 6 nights at this guesthouse and it was a pretty sweet experience. The common area was comfortable, spacious, and was a great way to meet other travelers as many of us would hang out there. The staff is very kind and speak English well. The beds are fairly big for Japan and have curtains for... More

Me and my friend stayed in the guesthouse for a night, and really enjoyed it. Guesthouse U-En boasts a very friendly and comfortable atmosphere for those who wish to relax after the day's travels in the spacious guest room, complete with a large kotatsu (table with a warmer) which is a lifesaver for the cold days. The tatami rooms are... More
