Hiro’s Guesthouse is located an eventful 15-minute walk from Tsuruhashi Station, an eastern hub on the JR Osaka Loop line. Subway lines also depart from here, and Namba, a key shopping and entertainment area, is only 3 stops away. Another connecting train line heads towards the former ancient capital of Nara and can be reached in 30 minutes. Osaka Castle is a 20-minute walk or two stops by train. Hiro’s Guesthouse is in the middle of Osaka’s Koreatown, a popular street with locals and visitors for food and gifts. There are many affordable restaurants and shops that line the lanterned street. If you ever need a kimchi fix this is the place. Hiro has a blackboard outside that says you can bring in outside food but to please buy a drink from him. That’s more than fair. Hiro, the man, is a friendly host, nearly fluent in English, and possesses a wealth of information about the area. The ground floor of Hiro’s Guesthouse is where you can drink and eat at round tables in a relaxed atmosphere. Good music plays at a volume that is comfortable to talk. The interior space is composed of dark brick and coloured glass and directly faces the street which is great for people-watching. The second and third floors have dormitory beds and clean toilets. There’s a private tatami room too. Showers have great water pressure. Enjoy your stay!

Hiro 사장님 변홍주 입니다. 이번 골든위크 10일 기간동안 게스트하우스에 지내면서 친절한 사장님 덕분에 너무 즐거운 시간 보냈습니다. 매일 맛있는 음식을 추천해주시고 멋진 일본 목욕탕도 소개해주시고 아무 불편함 없이 지낼수 있어서 너무 기뻤습니다. 마지막날 방문한 스시와 전골요리는 완전 대박이었습니다. 스모선수들이 먹는 전골요리는 정말 맛있었고 참치 뱃살 초밥은 입에서 살살 녹았습니다. 오사카에 처음 방문하는 분들이라면 정말 추천하는 숙박장소입니다. 역에서 10분정도 걸어야하는 거리이지만 정통시장과 코리아타운을 구경할수 있기에 지루하지않게 도착할수 있는 숙소입니다. 사장님의 친절한 배려와 무한리필 음료 메뉴는 오사카의 따스한 갈증을 풀어주기에 충분한 서비스였습니다. 너무 감사했고 다시 오사카를 방문할 때 다시 뵙겠습니다. 고맙습니다. Mr. Hiro is Mr. Hongju.  I spent a very pleasant time in this guesthouse during the Golden Week 10 days thanks to my friendly boss.  I recommend you delicious food every day, introduce a nice Japanese bath, and I was so happy to be able to stay without any inconvenience.  On the last day, the sushi and hotpot dishes were a great hit. Sumo wrestlers' nabe dish was delicious, and the tuna fish sashimi was melted from the mouth.  If you are visiting Osaka for the first time, this is a recommended place to stay. It is a 10 minute walk from the station, but it is not boring to see the authentic market and Koreatown. The boss's kind attention and infinite refilled beverage menu was enough to give Osaka a thirsty thirst. Thank you so much and see you again when I visit Osaka. thank you. Hiro社長変わりホンジュです。  今回のゴールデンウィーク10日間の期間中にゲストハウスに過ごしながら親切な社長のおかげでとても楽しい時間を過ごしました。  毎日おいしい食べ物を推薦してくださって素敵な日本の風呂も紹介してくださって何の不快感なしに過ごすことがあっても嬉しかったです。  最終日訪問した寿司と鍋料理は完全大当たりでした。 相撲選手が食べる鍋料理は本当においしかったマグロ腹寿司は口で優しく溶けた。  大阪で初めて訪れる方であれば、本当にお勧めする宿泊場所です。駅から10分ほど歩かなければなら距離が、本格市場とコリアタウンを見物することができているので退屈しないように到着することができるホテルです。 社長の親切な配慮と放題ドリンクメニューは、大阪の暖かい渇きを癒すのに十分なサービスでした。 とても感謝し再び大阪を訪問したときに再びまして。 ありがとうございます。

I had a friend I hadn’t seen in Seventeen years come and stay in Hiros Guesthose. Hiro is a long time friend of myself and a lot in my network of expats living here. We are familiar with and love Kohong [Hiro] and his guesthouse, often utilizing the downstairs for gettogethers. So it was fitting having my pal stay here. A lTe night out on the town and I myself missed the last train and had to stay myself. The tatami mat room we had reserved was a perfect place to rack and the day room, great to unwind. Other guests were pleasant and we enjoyed time with new faces. The next morning I’d let Kohong know I too had to stay. He said no problem and even discounted my stay under the conditions. I really appreciated his kindness. We even saw him the next morning As we enjoyed foods from the shops as they started up Sunday morning with fresh hangover soups, and Chige, kimchi, and Pajeon, crispy Korean panckes with vegetables and egg! He hung out with us and made us feel great for staying at his place. He was so inviting and humble, and treated us with trust. Cards had let us in and out, and when we closed up shop, we locked the key inside. Pricing for stay and drinks downstairs are more than reasonable. There are many books that have been passed through so an extensive library exists....if you’re looking for a home away from home, and new friends through this guesthouse, Hiros is the place to come. Cheers everyone. Dave Wesson, ‘Wes’ USJPDESIGN, Osaka.

This place is great for those who came to Osaka not to sleep, but to see Japan. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable, with TV, table, water, shower and toilet. Beds are comfortable. The host is very pleased, and the guesthouse is located in Korea Town, which allows you to experience not only Japan, but also Korea. Very good location, because only two metro stations are allocated to the main Osaka districts.

This was my first trip to Japan. A friend recommended Hiro’s guesthouse to me. Immediately I was put at ease by Hiro’s kindness and welcoming hospitality. The guesthouse is situated in the middle of Korea town in Osaka. It is quite busy during the day with vendors selling tasty Korean food. At night the area it is quite quiet and peaceful, but still there are plenty of delicious local restaurants open late within walking distance. Also within walking distance are public baths and a gym with a pool. It is about a ten minute walk to Tsuruhashi station which will easily connect you to all the places you want to see in Osaka. At Hiro’s, you can get a bed in a dorm room or a private (I think) ryokan style room, both for very reasonable prices. Hiro will be there to give you all the local knowledge you’ll need to enjoy your trip to Osaka and the rest of Japan. He will make you a perfectly hand-drawn map! A great place to stay for a solo traveler, or for anyone wanting affordable accommodation with friendly people :)
