Right next to Fukuyama JR stop, J-hoppers is conveniently located in a very very cool neighbourhood, 10mins walk from Osaka station. Great hostel vibe, with a large lounge and well equipped kitchen (free toast and jam every morning, coffee and tea all-day aside, were an amazing plus), I spent three nights in the female dorm on the 2nd floor. Shared facilities were always very clean and tidy. The other guests were friendly and approachable, and the staff simply outstanding (aside being the nicest receptionists, i needed a hand to make some transports reservations and they were extremely helpful). The manager organised a couple of nights out twice a week, which is nice.
Splendid value for money. If I were about to get back to Osaka, I’d have no doubt where to stay...

This was my first time staying at a hostel or guesthouse. It was a good first experience. It wasn't fancy at all, but it was comfortable and friendly. I arrived after 10:00 PM but the staff was kind enough to give me the access code to enter and leave my key and check-in information by the front door for me. I paid in the morning.

The room was very small, but it is Japan so that came as no surprise. I was given linens to make my own bed and instructed to remove them when I check out. That wasn't really too much of a hassle but I'm not sure if that's a usual practice for guesthouses.

My room was on the 4th floor. The stairway is narrow and there's no elevator so it takes some work to get your luggage upstairs. It's best to pack light. There was a bathroom on my floor but the shower was one below. I had to carry my stuff to the shower every morning. The showers themselves were very nice and clean and the soap provided was good. You can rent towels for 100 yen. That's not so bad, because the towels are a good size. But you will need to ask for them at the reception desk.

The tea and breakfast provided is nothing fancy, but good tasting. Breakfast is toast with butter and two types of Jam. I would usually have one piece and then go around the corner to the convenience store to get something more filing to go with it. There are two convenience stores very close and both are open late. There's also a cheap vending machine right outside the guesthouse door.

Fukushima train station really is a close walk, so that was convenient too. The neighborhood is a pretty quiet one. There are restaurants and private residences around, but it definitely is not a touristy area. It was unfortunate that a construction site is just behind the hostel right now, so some mornings were noisy, but that's only a temporary thing. It didn't bother me too much. I was up early already.

It's nice that the hostel has feature activities too. I went to the takoyaki making party and it was very fun. It's worth making sure you're home to try it.

My overall experience was good. The hostel was a convenient distance from stores and the train station, so getting around was easy. It had all the amenities I needed and the wifi worked well. It's not luxurious, but for the price, it was very good value. I would stay at it again.

I booked a single room in this hostel, but it was a bit of a surprise to be handed bedding at checkin to make my own bed. The bed was wedged into the corner, so making the bed was a bit of a struggle. The sheets weren’t quite big enough, which wasn’t the best either - but I just about managed without the bedding coming off during the night!

The bed was reasonably firm, and the bedroom was a good size. The air conditioning worked well. There wasn’t too much noise from either the hallway or outside. I liked the location - close to a useful train station.

There was a unisex toilet on each floor, which worked well. All three showers were beside each other - and I never had to wait, at least one was always available. The shower strength was good.

Toast breakfast was offically available from 8.30am to 10.30am - although some people started a bit earlier than that.

The staff had good english, and were very pleasant.

The place felt a bit worn - I think i’d look for somewhere else if staying in Osaka again. But if i couldn’t find another reasonably priced option - i would probably return.

I stayed in the dorms for a week and was very happy with my experience. To start, the colors and decor are calming and comfortable. The kitchen and dining area is centrally located and travellers of all ages and nationalities hang out in this area. There is also a computer for everybody's use. No extra charges for internet or anything else. Beds are soft and comfortable and all have privacy curtains. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into this hostel and the friendliness and courtesy that was offered.

One of the best places I've ever been. To the point, when we checked in after almost 20 hours without any sleep, we went for a party with Mr Yano and finished with other people on karaoke even longer. 30hts without sleep and would do it again!:)

Hello! Safety is not a problem in Japan at all, at least based on my experience. :) If I'm not mistaken, the last trip for Kanku Kaisoku (the rapid train service to Fukushima station in Osaka) is around 11pm, so I don't... More
