I stayed here for two nights to take a weekend city break. I arrived after midnight and check-in is open 24 hours (some other hotels of this class may close at 11pm or they may impose a surcharge for late check-in). Check-in staff can speak a little bit of English and there is an 1-page English guide for foreign people.... More

If you are alone and want to save money for a day or a good place. Excellent room has enough space. But should take into account that if you like a clean place. So it does not. Recommend only to sleep and leave in the morning and return in the evening

I will recommend solo traveler to Osaka to stay here. Cheap and quiet. Only thing which is not convenient os the shower room, it which there were time allocated for men and women. The most privacy place of the hotel is in the room. Warm bed and good working aircond.

I stayed in this "hotel" for a couple of nights with a friend. We had 2 single rooms. Rooms are small and look like a prison. The only good thing was the free and efficient wifi. There's only one bathroom for women, one for men and a common bathroom (with no toilet in it). Although the shower was decent, it... More

The Hotel Wako in Osaka is probably the dirtiest place I've ever stayed in. The only clean thing in my room was the bedding. The toilets are pathetic, the showers are not well maintained. The location of the hotel near the red light district is not very recommendable. You can see from the windows of the rooms on unkempt yards... More

Cheap is its best quality. There are multiple business hotels in the area (which doesn't look like a very good area, but being in Japan it means it's still safe). The place looks like a prison, rooms are small, would recommend it to the very budget conscious male traveller who is looking for nothing but just a tatami mat to... More

This place was the cheapest we could find and the location is fairly close to the city center. The whole place feels like a former prison and is not very clean. The staff was friendly but not helpful (very limited English). The only positive would be the new showers but they are only available a couple of hours in the... More

Nishinari District of Osaka has many cheap hotels and this is one of them.This hostel is close to Imamiya Station and Dobutsuenmae Station, so it is convenient for toursits. However, this area is popular with poor local people, not budget travellers. I stayed there for 1,500 yen, but you may find some cheaper hotels around there. For this hotel, rooms... More
