The whole place smelt like a 20 year old ash tray filled with fishy cigarette butts and dirty socks. The walls are a yellow all over and the bathrooms often have cigarette butts in the toilet. The place also has an overall creepy and uncomfortable vibe to it, and as they were painting, fumes wafted throughout the building. Had to keep the window open even though it was 2 degrees outside just to breathe clearly. Never again. Stay at hotel mikado around the corner, similar competitive price(1500yen pp in a comfy dorm) they actually have towels (oh yeah, sun plaza has no towels) and a kitchen and common area. Sun plaza has a stove in the bathroom, where permanent residents (I assume) prepare fish. I like fish, but I don't like the strong smell of raw fish when I'm brushing my teeth or using the toilet.

A lot of the budget hotels in this area are more apartment blocks. Convenient location, a poorer area but still safe and nice to be in, walk 15minutes and you're in tenoji, and a ten minute train to fantastic shopping and night life in namba area.

Great place, bad hotel. But we still toughed it out for 3 nights. If it's your only option, sure, it's still a roof. Otherwise steer clear.

this hotel (read appartment block) has to have been the worst place i have stayed in in 10 years of travelling.
the rooms stank of fresh paint with the walls yellowed from years of smoking within the rooms combined with a poor ventilation system.
the internet which they said was "really fast" was only fast at mid day when everyone who lived there was at work.
as well as the smell of raw fish and stale smoke and paint. the place was shady. shady as in taking all your valuables out each day due to the constant fear that someone would some how manage to steal your things.

the showers on the first floor were amazing however they had no towels.
the area is supposedly one of the poorest in japan, however it was rather lovely and quiet convenient to get to local hot spots.
however this does not redeem it.

we thought about leaving but toughed it out..... never again.

Room Tip: womens only floor is probably your best bet.

They didn't clean the beds. Hair and blood/dirt on the sheets. All day and night a lot of noise of workers. They also live there. Cold and nasty. We left the hotel. They didn't want to give the money back.

More like an apartment block than a hotel.
Room was ok but the bathroom/toilet was grim.
The 'kitchen' was just stove next to the sink in the bathroom (ie same room as the toilet).

Staff were a little strange and when I asked if they had a safety deposit box they told me they didn't and that I should valuables with me at all times as theft is common (?!).

It was my last week in Japan and I didn't want to be in such a place so forfeited the cost of one night and went to Americamura and stayed in a great hostel there instead.

The location was kinda cool and not like anywhere else I'd seen in Japan.
Reminded me more of Kuala Lumpur than anywhere else.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled solo

This hostel was dirt cheap so we weren't expecting much. It was a basic room with pretty thin futons, but for 1400yen per night it was fine! Good location too, one minute from the subway and the staff were pretty helpful.
The shared toilet/sink area on our floor was a bit scummy, but the shower room was fine, and the female only stall was a bonus.
A few pretty dodgy guests lurked around, but that's to be expected staying in Shinsekai!
Cheap accommodation, good for travellers on a budget.
