There are various style rooms available. I chose the Japanese style room available for 6 persons. It was very nice experience to stay in such a Japanese style room. The room was spacious with a small living room and another area for sleeping. There is also en-suite toilet. The best of the stay is the public bath where one can... More

Very clean hostel located near Shin Osaka station. The staff speak English to a certain extent so you should not have any problems communicating with them. Good customer service too, but that is a Japanese thing, I've noticed. Issues: - You only have until 00:00 to have a shower. I arrived at the hostel after a long day at 23:57... More

The hostel is clean and has strict rules, making it quite safe. There is a curfew from midnight to 6am during which doors are locked however staff were helpful and opened the doors earlier for me since I needed to be at airport by 7am thus needed to leave earlier than 6am. Room-mates were friendly and respectful, room had enough... More

A great stay at Shin-Osaka backpackers! I was very impressed with the lovely staff & their overall level of English. The bunk bedrooms were extremely spacious, clean, light & modern. Each bunk bed had its own bedside lamp & shut away curtains. The Japanese bathroom complete with onsen was a great little touch! However, I found it a little strange... More

Due to my lack of planning I had limited options for accommodation in Osaka. This hostel is located in Shin-Osaka, a stop away from Osaka central but still on the JR line. And it's convenient to the station, about a 10 minute walk. Hostel is very clean but comes with some oddities such as a communal bath and automatic /... More

Most of the staff are young maybe that's why their service were not so good. But then again it's a hostel so I won't complain much about that. I feel like living in dormitory with speaker telling us the coffee is ready in lobby, time to sleep please switch off your light etc. Very interesting experience tho the toilet is... More

(From Steph who stayed here April 2014): All very clean, wifi in the main lobby, western and "eastern" toilets, communal shower but also solo shower stall with not a very long line. Unfortunately some of our group had to sleep on mattresses on tatami mats because beds were limited in the rooms, and the pillows were not comfortable. Breakfast was... More
