The Imazato Guest House is a well-priced, friendly little hostel for females only. Its bare wood base is heavily decorated with Ikea pieces, which makes the place quite cheery. The futons on the bunks are comfortable enough, and there are little privacy curtains to go around each bed, which is a nice touch. There's also lockers available. A homemade [non-Western] breakfast is included in the price, along with tea. "Lights out" does not seem to be enforced, but that's not so terrible. It is good for solo travelers, as the other guests are generally friendly.
To get to the guesthouse you need to take a short walk from the subway station, but it is simple. The guesthouse is also within walking distance of Osaka Castle. Imazato is a quite nice place to stay.
