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 a walkable distance to many of the main attractions of Osaka. It took me about 30minutes to walk to umeda Sky building or hep-five also it's close to both umeda and Osaka station. 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

It is very convinient to get to (close to the Fukushima station which is one stop away from Osaka station). This has been my 2nd time using J-Hoppers Osaka and both times the staff have been really friendly and accommodating always... More

The hostel is located very near Fukushima Station, just a few minutes walk. It is a safe area and walking around at night is no problem! Very near Universals Studios Japan (3 stops way by train). The toilets are clean and it's very quiet at night. Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. Able to store luggage in the... 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. This hostels don't have lift so if you have big luggage you're going to have a work out getting on your room. The bathroom is on the second and... More

Considering its price, location and amenities it's a very good hostel, close to Osaka main station, 10-15 min walking, many new restaurants and bars around the area, a convinience store just 10 m from the hostel, the dorms all with curtains, lockers, so on. Just 5 min walking from a JR station so you can get to many parts of... More

Good, basic, clean little backpackers very near the station and easy to find. The girls who work at here are fantastic, very helpful and speak good English which I really did appreciate as I only, shamefully, have about 10 words of Japanese. The only real criticism I have is that the beds are very hard and the doona I had... More

The staff was sooo friendly! The rooms are really nice! What i loved the most about this hostel is that Japanese people could come in the evening to have a chat with the guests and it was a really nice culture exchange :) I even made a very dear friend there that I met again 2 years later! :)
