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

There are a few positive points to mention about this hostel, first and foremost the prize as it is really quite a bargain. The rooms are small but I've seen smaller. The common area is decent. The location is pretty good with two metro lines and a JR station right in front of the door. The staff is averagely friendly.... More

A bit old, not as nice as other places I'd stayed in japan. But nothing really wrong with it unless you are looking for something modern. Cheap private rooms, same price as dorms in other places.Cheap bike rental, Right beside the subway station, but the area is not so nice. I probably wouldn't stay there again
