(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.

I used this youth hostel literally for a stop over on my way north. It did the job but I wouldn't stay there again. It was close to the train station, although I had difficulty finding it at 11pm and had to ask in a hotel and restaurant to find it. (come out east gate of train station, cross the... More

Pros: free wi-fi access, quiet and comfortable dorms, friendly and helpful staff, very clean, great common room. Cons: although the location is central, it's very difficult to find as it's located in a parking lot. We tried to reach the hotel by e-mail to get the directions to the hotel, but the e-mail address they give you when you book... More

It's a very calm place. When I stayed there a lot of groups of young student stayed there. It did not really feel like a backpackers type hostel. For my purposes if was fine as I just wanted to get some sleep before heading on in the morning. The rooms where quite big and clean which was nice. I think... More

I booked this hotel primarily because of its central location and the fact that I am a YHA member (but surprisingly didn't get a discount at this hostel). I stayed at a shared room which is immaculately clean that included a spacious locker. The hostel is quite spacious for a Japan hotel and offered great views of the city because... More
