ENJOY SEEING OSAKA BY BICYCLE! Chari is the street name for “bicycle” in Japanese. It’s an endearing street name. It’s what you’d call that old bike you hop on to meet a friend for a drink in town. At CharinCo Hostel, we’re all about seeing Osaka as a local would. The city has a convenient train system -- Dotonburi, Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka Castle, and many landmarks are all accessible via public transport. But we believe slow traveling through the city on two wheels is the best way to take in all the sights, sounds, and flavors of Japan's food capital. We have bunks, traditional Japanese tatami rooms, two chic lounges (serving ice cold beer), and, of course, bicycles for rent. Our incredibly friendly staff knows a thing or two about Osaka and are happy to point you to a good time around town. But they also understand that the adventure is where your Chari takes you. CharinCo is located right in the middle of the action. We’re just 20 minutes by from Osaka Station, and a mere 10-minute’s walk from Osaka Castle. And the rest of Osaka can be reached within 30 minutes away by bike.

Cool+clean place, with plenty of well-kept bikes to use for the day. Although I’m writing this review for a free beer, I still recommend this place due to the great location, clean hostel living and friendly people.

Writing a review for a beer. Nice hostel though, free bikes, cozy hostel, clean, friendly. Would recommend. It is in a quiet neighbourhood about 5 minutes from the metro. Can be downtown in about 15 minutes or a short bike away.
