I stayed here one night in order to catch an early flight to Kansai airport. The room was without an air conditioner, but it did have a fan, and it was about 2 1/2 tatami mats in size. It was comfortable and I kept the window open and fan on in September. I had no problems there. Picky, less-traveled, futon-disliking,... More

Overall: My title says it all. Traveled with my husband and my parents. Hotel Toyo has a fun, lively atmosphere and is suited for the younger crowd / budget travelers / backpackers. Value: Fair value for the price, and cheap for Japan. Stayed 10 nights in one of the Ground Floor rooms (Php1,600/night). Service: Front desk staff changed everyday, but... More

Try to get a room on the first floor. The showers are great and the bathrooms are very clean. The atmosphere is great and I met a lot of nice people while staying in this hotel. I stayed in a twin room. It had A/C and a mini fridge. It wasn't much, but exactly what I was looking for. The... More

This place has a great atmosphere. The location is great, it's around the corner from the Dobutsuenmae station. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I no longer live in Japan but my friends and I would always stay here when we went to Osaka because it was the best place we found to stay on a budget. Perfect for... More

DO NOT BOOK WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING IN SUMMER! Biggest mistake of my journey so far, sleepless for 2 nights then luckily I managed to upgrade to an AC room, the bathrooms are great but the bedrooms are very, very uncomfortable with sandbag lick pillows! However, the staff are very friendly and receptive but I felt the hostel was almost too... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location is great, walking distance approximately 1 minute to the nearby subway station. Clean hotel, friendly and helpful staff, can converse in English. For me this hotel is a good value for money and i recommend to budget/backpacker who dont mind sharing toilet and shower room with others. The room is... More

The location of this hostel is great. It's only a 50 minute train ride from the airport and the station is right next to the hostel. The hostel is right in front of Spa World and close to an area with cheap restaurants (I had the best sashimi of my LIFE in one of the restaurants!!). The hostel itself is... More

Stayed here for a few nights, basically because it's cheap - but even so, there are some things I would expect. Pros: - Location- a few people have commented that the location isn't good. I would disagree, right next to 2 train lines (including a JR one) and only one stop from Namba. I thought it was fine! -staff were... More
