If you plan to stay at one place more than 5days with a low budget I suggest you stya here. You will get Japanese style room.Have a warmer and rack for your cloth. This place using a share bathroom, every floor have their bathroom but you may use any availble bathroom. But it still clean. You can cooked at the pantry near to the reception area. This hotel is center for Dobutsuen Mae Station & Shin Imamiya Station. End lot from the building you may see Family Mart. If you like to cooked, you can walk to the cheap market. It really cheap. Just ask for the Map area. I love this place. Worth my money for the backpacker.

Stayed 1 night with my husband after our flight back to Manila got canceled. We did a last minute booking in this hotel because the previous one we stayed in was fully booked. BUT, this was a great find as well!

Value: Great value, cheap for Japan.

Rooms: Room was clean, a bit small. Tatami/Japanese mat style bed, comfortable enough. Good room temperature from a quiet good quality aircon. Small TV, local channels only. Working mini refrigerator with freezer. I think they have Western style beds too, but you have to request for this upon booking. We didn't mind the tatami.

Toilet & Bath: Common/mixed shower rooms, as is expected in some Japanese hostels. Good water pressure, with hot water, clean. Common toilet, kept clean with toilet paper. Towels and robe provided for free. Also available: traditional Japanese common bath house, different schedules for male/female use. A unique cultural & traditional experience. :)

Service: Good service, friendly staff. Pleasant from check in to check out.

Sleep quality: Great, no problems at all, got a room on the 2nd floor.

Cleanliness: Our room, bed sheets and bath towels smelled & looked clean. Common areas were also kept clean and tidy.

Location: Please note that locals tend to avoid this Ward/area because homeless people live here. It is a bit sad to see because most are elderly but they don't bother anyone, they don't pester you for money either. It did not bother us. The hotel was in a great location, and extremely convenient. Literally seconds away from train / subway (Dobutsuenmae station) and convenience store (Family Mart) and a local ice cream & parfait store (ice cream for 200 Yen) run by a super nice grandpa ("Petit Young2"). One subway stop away from Namba. A couple of blocks away from JR Line which takes you to and from the airport. A short walk to two 100 Yen shops (one is "Daiso", the other forgot the name), and convenience stores (Family Mart & Lawson). A few meters walk to 2 different branches of a local supermarket ("Super Tamade") where cooked meals are extremely budget friendly (Get grilled eel/unagi on the cheap! Plus 200Yen Bento boxes). Get drinks and snacks here, too, and store in your mini ref. Minutes away from Shinsekai food street, the Tsutenkaku Tower and Tennoji Zoo & Park.

Wifi: Fast & reliable wifi available in room.

I am a 61 years old business man, and have lived in or traveled to Japan a combined 15 years or so. At one extreme I have stayed at the Ritz Carleton Osaka, and I guess Hotel Taiyo would represent the other extreme. As a frequent traveler around Japan, I search for places or experiences that are new to me, and which give me insight into Japanese society. I understand that this area of Osaka is where day laborers stay and seek work, thus the high concentration of cheap lodging. Hotel Taiyo appears to have positioned itself more for foreign travelers, certainly not all of whom are young.
I agree with other reviewers that the rooms are tiny (but bigger than in a "capsule hotel") and there are only 3 showers in the building that are shared by the 100 or so hotel guests. There is a Japanese-style bath open in the evenings - it's functional but not fancy. In the room there is a small TV (Japanese programs only), a small fridge and an air conditioner, all of which worked fine. You get a towel, a wash cloth, toothbrush, yukata-robe and slippers, and there is shampoo and body soap in the showers and bath.
Across the street to the north is the Shinseikai (literally, "New World") area, built over 100 years ago. In the evening, particularly on weekends, the place is lit up and filled with people. who line up to eat at the great number of kushiyaki and sushi restaurants; mostly each stick of kushiyaki and piece of sushi is 100 yen. The atmosphere is a far cry from that of Namba just 2 stations north, and if you are looking for a different side of Japan, you can see it here.

We stayed at Hotel Taiyo, I do see a lot of people posting positive reviews for Hotel Toyo here, that is a diffrent hotel and definitely not this one.

The hotel is outdated, run down and in desperate need of renovation. The tile are old, worn and look like they have never been properly cleaned or waxed. The furniture is shabby and uncomfortable the bed springs where so prominent it left my hips and ankles aching. Our first night we went out and bought ourselves pillows as the ones here are unusable. There was also only one plug in the room so we had to spend even more for a power bar.

The whole place was filthy with dirt and dust visible in every corner. The towels were dirty, and the bathroom was again unclean and permanently smelled of piss our whole stay. The amount of dust in the vents were slightly alarming from a safety standpoint.

We also had major issues with internet 90% of the time. If you need internet for work you are SOL.

The staff was professional and friendly, and the overall customer service was the only redeeming quality

The location was great close the the main line station and the JR line.

Overall, the hotel fell way below expectations and was a terrible experience that I would not recommend to anyone

We enjoyed our three nights in Taiyo. You can only expect so much according to the price. For that is was perfect. Cosy little Tatami rooms with aircon, fridge and window and storage nooks. Plenty of space in the hotel, also in the common areas and kitchen. Plenty of shared toilets and even an own Onsen. Even though it's right at the street, it's quiet at night. Located in a rather rough but real and charming area of Osaka right next to a metro station. Perfectly located for southern exploration of Kansai and the airport. Many nice individual touches, lots of shopping and restaurants around in a happening area.

We had an overnight in hotel taiyo before travelling to kyoto. Hotel was clean, though it was quite old. room size was ok. The shower box was clean, same as the toilet. Location is very good since it is very near the subway station dobutsuen-mae.

The hotel was nice, the traditional rooms are cool. They give you robes and towels which is pretty good for a cheap hotel. The atmosphere is very nice, and the people working on the desk are kind. The Japanese style rooms are very cool.

The location is awesome! Close to Shinimamiya, Dobutsuenmae and Tennoji stations.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. We couldn't have asked for anything better, and couldn't believe how cheap it was! The bathrooms were all good and clean and the shower worked better than many expensive hotels in Australia.

I don't normally write reviews, but this hotel emailed me when they found my lost wallet, and then sent it back to Australia for me for free! How amazing is that?! Awesome people and I will definitely stay here again (I have to pay them back somehow because they won't let me pay for shipping)

Hotel Taiyo is located very close to a major JR/subway station and was easy to find. It's south of most destinations in Osaka (like Osaka Castle, Den Den Town, etc.) and east of the aquarium.

HT is in a working class neighborhood and it's a little more rough that the more tourist friendly areas, but I thought it was a fantastic "real" neighborhood to base our Osaka trip out of. It's a little noisy in the morning, but that's to be expected. It doesn't hurt that the cheapest 'super' we found in all of Japan was just down the street. We got cans of coffee for 38 (!!!) yen and stocked up on all sorts of snacks. There are also market stalls in the area that sell hot food, groceries, and anything else that you could need in a pinch (umbrella?). It's cheap, close to the train station, and has the shopping necessities right around the corner.

I'll start off with the location, which is great. It's very close to the JR Shin Imamiya station and the Dobutsuen-Mae subway station is right outside the hotel lobby door, so getting to sites and day trips was seamless.

The rooms, were very basic. The first room we were in on the 2nd floor (for 1 night only) which was kinda dark, had a funky smell and was moderately clean. Luckily we moved to a 4th floor room and it was much cleaner and brighter. There are Japanese style open baths (with hours for men or women) on the 1st floor and private showers on the 2nd floor. The cleanliness of the toilet was ok, it could use a more consistent rotation of cleaning because of the high volume of users. Overall, it's a very basic, budget hotel.

Honestly, we were fine with it because the location was great and the A/C was super strong, which was perfect for the hot Osaka days. Also, the workers were very helpful and friendly.

I understand budget, budget is cheap accommodation BUT cheap doesn't not have to mean actual having to stay in atrocious accommodation. For 3100¥ for a twin room I assumed it was a bargain, I'd stayed in mt fuji and Shinjuku for around the same cost and it was comfortable, close to train lines, nice clean areas, friendly staff and a really safe environment. This was the complete opposite - the staff didn't really seem to care about anything, the walk from the station to here is dirty, smelly and so is the hotel. The whole hotel smells and the beds are a thin matress on the ground with a bag of what feels like gravel for a pillow. The elevator is slow and there are 2 floors with bathing facilites on them TWO OF NINE. Each floor has a weird room with a big trough which could easily become a bathroom. 160 or so rooms and 2 showers that I could find. Don't waste your time with this place unless you're desperate, poor and tired. The toilets and kitchen doesn't seem to get a professional clean very often as both were disgusting. When you go out you have to leave your key in a wicker basket on the counter which could easily be swiped, I'd rather not get all my possessions stolen. They also do not provide in room safes and there are dingy fire escapes leading outside easily accessible. The common room was nice and so is the rack of information on the area, WiFi is available on every floor and works reasonably well and reasonably fast.
