“Friendly tucked away hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2010

Very cool place to stay, different to most places. The hostel has been well designed and has a funky theme with wall graphics and bright colours. Its located right next to the main Osaka loop line, so its easy to get into main areas, plus its walkable to main attactions, if you like a 30 min stroll.
Locally some good food places, plus Korean Marker, and supermarkets for cheap backpackers.
Family run with possibly the cutest baby I have ever seen scrambling around the place.
Only negatives would be the tight communial area, although it does force you to meet your fellow travellers.
