We were the longest-staying guests of Hana Hostel and we enjoyed every moment of it.
The hostel is very clean, the staff can speak English and is always present and useful: they recommended to us what I think is the best Okonomiyaki restaurant EVER and when the sake-night was cancelled due to the host sickness, they showed us several places on the map where we could try good sake at reasonable prices.
The room was clean and provided with air conditioning: the room was quite cold when the air conditioner was off, but this is actually a problem of most of the Japanese buildings, freezing cold during winter, hot like hell during summer. We did not have a private toilet/bathroom, but this as well is quite common in Japanese hostels, so nothing to complain about. The toilet and bathroom, despite being communal, were always clean an shiny.
The location is perfect: a few steps away from the underground, a short walk from the shopping area and just 10 minutes walk from Dotombori and Namba.
The kitchen as well was clean and the fridge was not full of gone-off food.
It was a great experience and we actually regretted not to have booked the place for longer, but we definitely will next time!
Thank you for making our stay in Japan so wonderful and for making us feel at home every time we stepped into the front door.
