I stayed at the hostel at the end of my trip last October. It was such a pleasant stay that I regretted only staying for 3 nights! The place is pretty easy to find and relatively close to the train station. There are a lot of restaurants, bars, kombini/supermarkets and even a karaoke place nearby.
The staff was also very friendly and helpful too. They went and greeted us when we just arrived and will happily help to explain to you if you have any questions about where to go in Osaka. The lounge area provided a great place to chat with other guests and the hostel also provided events for guests to be able to mingle. The hostel also provided a point card which you can use on your next stay. You can get souvenirs or a free bike rent for a day. Cycling is a healthy and cheaper option to go around the city.
