Second time I've stayed at this guest house in Osaka, 8 person dorm in the 2nd floor is quiet and had good ventilation. And curtains for privacy which is a common in Japan hostels. Cheapest laundry machine at 200 Yen and 100 Yen Dryer that dries with one use. 3 person dorm is a bit odd since one bed has... More

So as a little context, I had arrived in Osaka from Australia quite late, and had - by some freak of coincidence and luck - managed to find my way to the correct train, and then... More

J-Hoppers in Osaka is what every hostel should be. As soon as you walk in you can feel the social atmosphere from the lounge area. We initially stayed in a two bedroom private room. Comfortable room with air conditioning. We also returned and stayed in an 8 bed dorm. Again, comfortable. The aspect about the place that is the most... More

It's convenient to stay here if you plan to travel to Kyoto or Kobe. The staff were super friendly and the room was very clean. This... More

A good, basic backpacker hostel near fukushima station. The staffs are helpful, friendly and speak good English. The room are clean, however the mattresses are a biiiit on the thin side.
