“Impressive!”
Reviewed April 19, 2009

compared with what we call "hotel" in tokyo, this hostel is fantastic and good value for money.
Like: room with space, cleanliness, facilities, near by train station and helpful staffs
Dislike: hostel area is not friendly at night esp. if you are woman travelling alone.

The western-style single room was cosy and clean. You'd need to alert the reception should you want your room cleaned. I asked about hot water for drinking and the guy at the reception loaned me a portable boiler for free (how nice!). Though there were many other hotel guests, some very noisy, I always got to use the individual shower rooms. The morning coffee was great - but I preferred having it in the comfort and privacy of my room. Be prepared for the cold when using the toilets despite the automatic seat warmers! It's nice to be back from the nearest Shin-imamiya station in 2 minutes after a day of sightseeing and shopping. Walk about 3 minutes to a food alley - there's a popular Takoyaki (octopus ball) stall at Shin Seki (I think), near a tower structure (forgot the name). Aside, I recommend heading to Daiei, which has a great supermarket that sells ready-to-eat boxed meals at good prices - there's one at the doorstep of Kyobashi station (take the West exit).

  • Liked — The price and free coffee.
  • Disliked — There was a slight smell but it was not much a bother.

It was our first time in Osaka, booked this on-line through "Hostel world"
My friend from Japan described this area as the Japanese version of Vancouver's "Gastown". We thought, "Old cobblestone, heritage buildings.." but he meant the dodgey part with more homeless people! We didn't notice it all that much, in fact, it was mostly old people with pajamas on, riding bicycles!

There were several udon noodle shops, kushikatsu stalls and the Shinsekai neighbourhood with the Hitachi/Osaka tower (good landmark if you get lost) The area felt kinda touristy (restaurants in the main area were expensive), and a bit run down too.

The hotel is 1/2 a block away from the JR Shin-Imamiya station and Subway Dobutsuen mae. We had a tatami room and it was a decent size. Our window looked out at the train tracks, but we slept through it (double paned) and we were up from jet lag before the trains started runnin up again anyways.

There were laptops in the lobby, didn't have time to use it, but it's free from 7 - 11. I had the free coffee each morning after having shower. There's designated times for women and men using the public bath in hotel. However, there are 24 hr shower stalls which were clean. I noticed there was also a laundry room.

Ask front desk for restaurant ideas (they may also have discount coupons like the "Daiyoshi" restaurant that we went to)

I have no pictures since we lost our camera on our trip!

  • Liked — Convenient to train stations, seeing the not so shiny part of Osaka
  • Disliked — Not much to do at night; Too far from Shinsaibashi where all the shopping scene is
  • Stayed October 2008, traveled as a couple
