I stayed for a little over a week in Osaka. Hiro's Guest House is where I ended up spending my nights, since I wanted cheap accommodation, and it ended up being a fantastic decision. This is the place you pick if you are not only just looking for a place to check-in and spend the night, but you also want... More

This was my second stay at Hiro's. I stayed only a week this time, and while the layout has changed a little, I still experienced all the good things I found at Hiro's last time: comfort, safety, delicious food a hop away, interesting conversation partners, and the most hospitable guest house owner in all of Osaka. To comply with standards,... More

We stayed for four nights in the private double room at Hiro's Guest House. Hiro had just finished renovations in his guesthouse, so everything was very new and clean feeling.The room was traditional tatami-style and very spacious. As a slide sleeper, I found the mattress a bit thin and personally would have preferred one that was slightly thicker. The guest... More

I been here twice last here staying around 4 nights each visit. The location is a bit of a walk from the subway but that's actually the good thing about this guest house. You'll find this place not as pack as other guest house and it's more clean as well. Also a note about the location, the guest house is... More

Hiro is a great guy and was very welcoming and friendly to us. There was another temporary staff member from Australia who was also nice. When we got there Hiro gave us mandarins he got from a neighbor which were amazing! The guesthouse is located in Korea Town, where you can eat the best chijimi you've ever had in your... More

This is really a good place to stay. For a single tatami room, it actually can accommodate for more than 3 persons. Mr Hiro is really nice and helpful. The location might a bit far from the Tsuruhashi station. For me, it took almost more than 20 mins walking from the station to the hostel. For those travel with big... More

We only stayed one night but Hiro really went out of his way to accommodate us. A great place for non Japanese speakers- Hiro gave us a recommendation for okonomiyaki and even wrote out an order for us to take... very welcome as it was our first night in Japan!

Hiro is a great host, he gives great advice and is very willing to help travellers with his language skills in English, Korean and Japanese.
