“Cheapest room in Japan!”
Reviewed August 31, 2010

This is by very far the cheapest room we have found to stay in in Japan so far. We located the Umeda Dormitory on the internet and booked for 7 nights. 500 yen per night and 11,000 yen per week! This is an amazing deal by Japan standards.

The rooms are small and basic, as are all cheap rooms in Japan. However they are comfortable, clean and secure. Unlike most other Japanese hostel which have check in times of between 4pm and 6pm here you can check in anytime!

The common room has a very well equiped kitchen, cable TV and free internet and even a small gym/ workout area! There is washing facilities and bike hire is only 100 yen a day!!

The central train stations (Osaka and Umeda) are a 10 minute walk from the hostel and there is a very good and very cheap supermarket also 10 minutes away and a Family Mart 1 minute away.

The owners of this Hostel are a married couple who are two of the nicest, most helpfull and accomodating people I have met to date. They speak relatively good English and will do everything they can to help out. Our Laptop broke whilst here and they took it to a friend of theirs to be fixed for free!!

Overall, for the hard up budget traveller this is a gem!! Dont miss out!
