The hostel is clean and has strict rules, making it quite safe. There is a curfew from midnight to 6am during which doors are locked however staff were helpful and opened the doors earlier for me since I needed to be at airport by 7am thus needed to leave earlier than 6am. Room-mates were friendly and respectful, room had enough... More

A great stay at Shin-Osaka backpackers! I was very impressed with the lovely staff & their overall level of English. The bunk bedrooms were extremely spacious, clean, light & modern. Each bunk bed had its own bedside lamp & shut away curtains. The Japanese bathroom complete with onsen was a great little touch! However, I found it a little strange... More

Due to my lack of planning I had limited options for accommodation in Osaka. This hostel is located in Shin-Osaka, a stop away from Osaka central but still on the JR line. And it's convenient to the station, about a 10 minute walk. Hostel is very clean but comes with some oddities such as a communal bath and automatic /... More

Most of the staff are young maybe that's why their service were not so good. But then again it's a hostel so I won't complain much about that. I feel like living in dormitory with speaker telling us the coffee is ready in lobby, time to sleep please switch off your light etc. Very interesting experience tho the toilet is... More

(From Steph who stayed here April 2014): All very clean, wifi in the main lobby, western and "eastern" toilets, communal shower but also solo shower stall with not a very long line. Unfortunately some of our group had to sleep on mattresses on tatami mats because beds were limited in the rooms, and the pillows were not comfortable. Breakfast was... More

Stayed here for one night in the dorm room for 6 as I had to catch the shinkansen back to Tokyo early the next morning, and the location was supremely located close to the JR Shin-Osaka station. I guess there's a reason why the prices here are slightly more expensive than most other hostels - apart from location, it's new,... More

I'd stayed in Shin Osaka Youth Hostel from February 11-14th and it was a good stay for me and my friends. We're backpackers group from Malaysia, and all I can said it was indeed, a good, super good hostel for backpackers. The dormitory room for 6 with tatami room was splendid, with clean and spacious common room. Wi-Fi, and free... More

Very little trouble reaching it. Love a nice hot bath available when I got there. The biggest issue is the curview put in place. An extra plus was the fact that there's alcohol available on site. Had a good stay.
