“cheap in good location”
Reviewed April 30, 2007

stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in April 2007 -- not a bad experience but would look at some other (similarly priced $30/night) places (probably a ryokan-type) next time in Osaka.
Converted from a traditional Japanese house, bottom floor is common area (smoking allowed), shower (through common area, doesn't lock, but other hostel'ers seem to respect closed door), bathroom (separate from shower). Steep stairs lead to 2nd floor where 10 beds are (bunk beds), there are really loud metal lockers, but otherwise we had no problems with overly loud fellow hostel'ers. Bathroom on the 2nd floor did not have a working sink and was pretty dirty. The kitchen was not used while we were there (thankfully as it would seem that any cooking smells would go directly into the bunks).
