Very close to a metro station, simply 2mins walk. Guestroom (private double bed room) is very clean as well as the shower room. However not much to see around the area but it is very convenient to travel to other areas in Osaka.

This hostel is in a great location, literally around the corner from a train station. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm with a friend. The sheets/bedding/floors/toilet were very clean. The walls were a bit grubby and the shower although clean was slightly mouldy. There's a set of lockers in reception but they were all taken. The staff were extremely...

I visited Osaka with my best friend recently and stayed here for 3 nights. We stayed in a twin room on the first/ground floor. There was a toilet and a shower room directly in front of us so it was convenient. The room that we stayed in was clean, and so were the toilet and shower too. I find the...

Location is great next to Momodani metro station, which is easy access to Osaka JR and Kansai airport. Staff were very helpful in showing me how to get to tourist sites and restaurants. Best value hostel out of many locations I stayed throughout various cities in Japan.
