Generally, the hotel is good and fair considering its cheap price level. We got the 6-bedroom dormitory all for ourselves even if we are only four in the group. We wanted a bigger space that's why. I would throw 5/5 in cleanliness and its security aspect. 3 train stations are just few stones away from the hotel. However, if you're... More

An affordable, clean and warm hotel with basic need. The owner is a friendly guy who is willing to answer your question and even watched us leaving the hotel with a goodbye. The best thing is, you could store your huge luggage with the hotel while travelling to another part of Kansai. 5 minutes walk away from subway and JR... More

The friendly staff was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction of where the good food are. Despite it not being in a central location, it is still very close to everything else, within 5min walking distance to the subway and JR train stations and about 30mins walk to Dotonbori which if you're into the Osaka night life...

it's not located in the prime tourist area but very close to the train (right in front) it's a budget hotel, so no free breakfast (only tea and coffee at the lobby) and they offers cleaning service once per week, just let the reception know you need your room clean before 10am. the lobby is quite spacious, with sofas, TV....

非常骯髒 服務態度非常差 When I arrived the man gave me a room was uncleaned. There was rubbish everywhere and the toilet was very dirty, much more than a public toilet. I told him at the reception and he just said "well, they will clean it soon" and didn't even appalogized. I asked if he could recommend me some public bath or... More

Stayed in the dormitory room as a young solo traveller. Only two/three of us in a 6-person room, which is equipped with a toilet and a shower. Amenities are provided. As somebody else mentioned, you can hear the trains passing by but it isn't loud. The staff answered my questions but they often gave me an odd look which made... More

I went here with other three girls, so we rent a dorm room. The dorm room is supposed for 6 people, but it's not peak season so we're having a blast for living in that room. The room is pretty spacious and has one toilet, one bathroom, and has a hairdryer!!! We can hear train is coming, but not that... More
