It's cheap but it doesn't worth any of it. This place is dirty, dark, frightening, smelly and very unpleasant. Although Mr. Kazu is very nice and friendly, trust me and find another place, there much better places at the same price in Osaka. We just slept one night because it was to late to find another place, we left the... More

Whilst the rooms are Japanese tiny, the common room is outstanding - large, fully equipped kitchen, a couple of dining tables and lounge areas (complete with computers if you don't have a laptop for the super strong wifi) and, yes, some work-out...

This is by very far the cheapest room we have found to stay in in Japan so far. We located the Umeda Dormitory on the internet and booked for 7 nights. 500 yen per night and 11,000 yen per week!
