Booked this place via Hostelworld-com -Only 1600-1800 yen a night for a clean small room. -Air-con/heather worked perfectly. -Close to train station. -7/11 and supermarkets close-by. -Location was ok, you can easily walk to Namba (only 20-30 min). One previous review described the area as a slum...I would totally disagree, I don't know in which fairy tale that reviewer lives... More

Drinking water tank also available on... More

This hostel is a converted doya, located in the only slum in Japan. Most locals avoid the area, and for good reason. There are homeless drunks everywhere, passed out in the street outside the hostel in the middle of the day. At night, its very scary. As a girl returning late at night to the hostel by myself I felt... More

If you're looking for a private room (shared bathroom though) that suit your budget and close (like super close to station) the this place is your answer.

Hostel Toyo is in a great location! 2 minute walk away from the JR station and on the train line for the airport train! We had a little trouble finding the place but in the end we got there and the staff were very friendly towards our super-late check in. The rooms are comfortable, we had a twin bed room,... More

A great budget option. Nice staff who were eager to help you with issued. Only had night but clean rooms and nice common areas. Convinent location right next to a subway station with intersecting lines.

Some upgrade on the facilities are needed. The shower rooms and toilet at the ground floor are good but those upstairs need some upgrade. So do the private room. Staffs were nice and helpful. Good location, near shinsekai.

I traveled to Osaka by myself, it was the first time I ever traveled alone and I had no worries. But once I arrived to the country, my confidence vanished: the subway system was confusing, I was lost and I didn't know any Japanese besides "excuse me" and "I'm allergic to seafood." It took me a while to find the... More
