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

Nishinari District of Osaka has many cheap hotels and this is one of them and the best to stay. There are some cheaper hotels (around 1,000-1,500 yen) in this district, but poor local people stay in the hotels. On the other hand, this hostel has many international tourists and you should be relieved to stay. So 1,600 yen for a... More

At just 1,500 yen for a private room, what more can you ask? It even includes air-conditioning. Pillow is a tad too hard though. It isn't in city centre or Dotonburi district, but it's just 5 minutes walk to a metro station and also a train station. It's also about 10 minutes walk to Spa World which is worth visiting.... More

This is a great example of "you get what you pay for". It was dirt cheap for an actual private room, although that only consisted of a small tatami mat room with a thin futon on the floor, a couple blankets, and a grain-filled pillow. There was also a small TV, but I didn't use it. That said, getting a... More

Even though the room is quite small and the mattress is a bit thin, it's pretty cozy, considering it's low price. I think it's the best deal you can get for a private room. I spent most of my time in the common room , where they have kitchen, dining table, computer corner, reading area, and also big TV with... More
