I stayed in Osaka for three nights. And I found this hostel on hostelworld.com. The feedbacks of this hostel are really good so I sent e-mail to it directly and booked the room.
I stayed in the twin room with my friends and it was really nice. The room was very clean and not small. Apart from the bed, there are two chairs and a desk provided. But the female dorm is a bit packed. The shower and bathrooms are very clean. The shower gel and shampoo are provided!
The location is not bad. There is a small supermarket nearby and a big one can be reached by 10 minutes walk. Convenience store is just next to the hostel.
The hostel is just bout 3 minutes walk from JR Fukushima station or 15 minutes walk from Osaka station. Most places can be reached easily by the transport at Osaka station. I usually took the JR train to Osaka station and changed there to reach other places. And it took less than an hour to Kyoto. So I went to Kyoto for a day trip! The staff was very helpful and friendly as well! They were patient and helpful to answer our questions and show us the way.
One bad thing is you need to carry your luggage upstairs. But with this price and quality, this hostel is highly recommended!
