J-Hoppers Osaka Guesthouse

Reviewed April 16, 2013

Firstly communication via email from the hostel was excellent. I had plenty of information and because of this, I found the hostel without getting lost. The Hostel itself was in a good location and is close to the local subway and other bars and restaurants. Upon check-in a nice lady gave me lots of information and advised me on my days sightseeing. After exploring Osaka I came back and got settled in my room. The room was small but this was Japan after all. My bed was comfy & clean. The showers was also good and seemed very clean.

The lounge area again was small but apart from that it was good enough to meet other people and have a good time. I used the free usage of the PC's downstairs which was great for sending emails to family back home. I checked out super early so I didn't say goodbye officially to the helpful friendly staff at J-Hoppers but I will defiantly recommend this hostel to everyone coming to Osaka.

modern, clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious compared to a lot of places in Japan. Nice happy atmosphere and loads of information on what to do in the area, how to get there, discounts etc etc etc. You can also rent bikes for 500 yen. They also have social gatherings like the international exchange parties on Fridays where we met loads of people and on Sunday Mr Yano takes you on a drinking tour! 1 minute walk from station and close to all other facilities. Highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed at j hoppers Osaka for 5 nights over a week. My partner had stayed there a few years earlier which is why we returned.
We stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm which was great value for money, the beds were comfortable with big duvets and all had individual curtains making it a bit more private. There were also lockers in the room for valuables.
The hostel was kept clean throughout.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. Mr Yano was great and his food reccommondations for the area close by are well worth the visit, especially the ramen place.
There was free tea and coffe always available from the kitchen, we really enjoyed sitting on the roof in the morning with a hot t overlooking the surrounding city.
The room we were staying in was next to the street which gave us a good view of the street but was a little bit noisy in the late evenings but it wasn't a big problem as it is mostly restaurants and if needed they sell earplugs.
The hostel is conveniently located near the fukushima station, good restaurants, supermarket and 7/11.
All in all a great stay and will stay there next time we are in Osaka.

J-Hoppers Osaka is actually belongs to the Chain Hostel called J-Hoppers, They have two brands in Japan, One is J-Hoppers and the other is Hana, hostels located in Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka, All of them gained many good reviews from the customer stayed with them.

The one in Osaka with very convenient location, just walking distance from Fukushima Station. Bars and small local food store all within walking distance, If you hold the JR pass, that would be awesome to travel around.

Their room size is okay for normal sized people, if you are over weighted or with super size, please don't book since the stairway is narrow and you may not feel comfortable to climb up and down.

I like their toilet and shower, It is very unique capsule style, of course could just fit normal sized people.

Staff is very helpful and accommodating, Japanese speaking? English speaking? or if you are lucky, you will meet seasonal staff speaking your own languages.

In general, Highly Recommended!

Amazing little hostel in a convenient locations Osaka. 5mins walk from Fukishima station which is onthe handy Osaka loop so makes travelling around the city easy.
Great size room and bed, clean linen, all a must when travelling.Large shower complete with shampoo and body wash.
The people that work here are great, always willing to help out with maps directions and events. Going out with Mr Yang was hilarious, justwatch out for his donuts!
Thanks J Hoppers!

This is the best hostel I stayed at during my trip to Japan. It's in an excellent location, 5 mins away from Fukushima Station (and a Mister Donuts of course), 7-11 and bars/restaurants close by.
The staff were so nice and helpful, the bathrooms always clean, the dorms were roomy with good heating, common areas to chill out in and a fully equipped kitchen to use.
If you get the chance join in with the Friday night International party or Sunday night dinner and drinks with the legend Mr Yano!
