My girlfriends and I stayed at this hostel for one night, It was close to the train stations. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a triple tatami room which was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and we didn't have issues waiting on showers/toilets etc. The common room was fun to have and handy if...

We stayed at U-En in January for about two nights. Loved the feel of the old traditional Japanese 'house', very warm and welcoming. Stayed in the room for two, small yet comfortable. A small lock and key was provided for the room. The hostel was very well equipped, clean, and comfortable. Toilets and shower rooms were clean, hot water and... More

We had such a great experience at this guesthouse, and have nothing but praise for it. It was very easy to find, being only a 5 minute walk from Shin-Fukushima station and Fukushima station, so only a 5 minute train ride from JR Osaka station. Even though the guesthouse was full, it was still very quiet. The showers are excellent,... More

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
