Shin-Osaka Youth hostel
Ranked #51 of 263 Specialty lodging in Osaka
Reviewed March 23, 2011

This is a great youth hostel in Japan! I can't recommend it high enough. I spent 3 months in Japan traveling around and this is definitely one of the best I stayed at. The rooms are spacious and if you go during an off-season you will most likely get a giant room to yourself, better than a hotel. The washroom is great, both Japanese and Western styles. The staff is great and speaks a good amount of English. They will hold bags for you and there are free lockers in every room for valuables. The place is also super easy to find, once you get out of Shin-Osaka station its about 2 blocks away, normally the train station people will know where it is.

This is a good, new and clean youth hostel. Actually it didnt really feel like a youth hostel, or not what I imagine a youth hostel to be. Felt like a community based hotel. :P The staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was convenient and easy.

The room was shared with up to 6 ppl, but i only met 2 other teens. I decided to sleep on the tatami mat with mattress. Self-service but everything was clean.

The location is excellent, near the shinkansen station. They had a good decent shower and toilet and also a japanese bath. I rented a towel. They also have free wifi at the lobby. This was important as i had to top up my credit card limit via online banking using my iphone. :D

Best thing about this place is its cleanliness and location. Least like about it i guess is sharing room with strangers, but thats hostel for you. :)

Shin-Osaka Youth Hostel is the best hostel ever!!! Good location, just 5 minutes walk from Shin-Osaka Station. This hotel is super clean! Bathroom is nice, but we have to take quite a long walk to get there (from the end of corridor on 9th floor to the other side on the 10th floor). Room is spacious. Cafeteria is huge and clean. Hot green tea is available all day. There is also a Japanese language class at 8 pm, free of charge.

We have just returned to Australia after our first trip to Japan. A 13 night stay in Osaka/Kyoto, with our 2 children ( aged 2 and 6). The location was great for us as we arrived into KIX and jumped off at Shin Osaka with no changes needed. Our room was spacious, quiet, clean and very comfortable indeed. There is a great 'lounge' area for the children to play in (even though our room was adequate) with toys, located in the reception area and always someone for them to talk with. Staff are super friendly and are more than happy to help with suggestions on day plans so you get the most out of your visit. Laundry, showers and bamboo charcoal bath all a delight to use, along with the slippers (a pleasure to put on after a day trekking around the city). At the end of each day as we caught the train 'home' it felt like we were leaving the hustle and bustle of the city and returning to a quieter and more relaxed area. Food was good around the station with plenty of choice to eat in. The deli (can't remember the name exactly) had lots of international food and items to buy if you wanted to cook back at the YHA. The breakfast ordered the night before was excellent value and served in the spacious eating area with views of Osaka and the Umeda Sky Building. When we go back to Japan, we will stay here again for sure. It's easy to get to, safe, clean, friendly and a great price!
