“Clean room at a low price. Not much else to it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Only English reviewer here so I'll be super honest. This place is cheap. Cheap cheap cheap. It's a clean room with a door you can lock and not much else but if you're a traveller on a tight budget I'd say you might be barking up the RIGHT tree here. It's beside a metro and separate train line so you can travel Kansai easily from here, it's up to an hours walk from Namba.

Toilets are rubbishy and I can't imagine the shower is any better but it's clean, convenient and about 1700yen (17euro/19dollars).

If theres no room at the inn, so to speak, there are a few other similarly priced hotels in the area though this one was the best value when I went.

Not for couples or families.

Room Tip: Try not to face onto the train tracks or to be too low for the same reason.
