      A decent, well-run option in a convenient and interesting neighborhood”

      It's felt a bit worn down, but not due to any fault of the people running the place. The staff were nice and helpful, and the place was clean and well-maintained. If you want an inexpensive hostel that is centrally located (near Tennoji station, Dobutsuen-Mae station, and Shin-Imamiya Ekimae tram stop), then this is a serviceable option. The price can't be beat. A Japanese friend who moved to Osaka from Tokyo told us that the neighborhood is sketchy by her Tokyo standards and that she would not walk around there at night, but she also acknowledged that by US standards it is very safe. So apparently if you want to see a "rough" neighborhood in Osaka, then this is the place. But to me, coming from the US, the neighborhood is totally fine, and it is actually surrounded by many interesting places to walk.

      Solo Travel”

      I stopped by on my way back from visiting a grave in Kyoto. I chose this hotel because I had stayed nearby a few years ago and because it is close to a train station that goes directly to Kansai Airport. There are places to eat, supermarkets, and Don Quijote in the shopping street, so it is convenient. On the last day, I had some free time, so I relaxed at a nearby public bath. The hotel has a shared kitchen and TV next to the front desk, so many people were cooking meals with ingredients they bought at supermarkets and Kuromon Market (it is convenient to take the subway from Dobutsuen-mae Station to Kuromon Market, but it takes nearly 30 minutes on foot). Here, you can communicate with people from many countries in the communication room, or you can have a meal silently at a table alone. The rooms are small because they are originally simple accommodations, but they are clean enough for women to stay and you can have your own personal space, which is great. I would like to stay here again.

      Great value, spacious, good atmosphere”

      Much better than Peace House Sachi which is right next door. Here you get a whole (tiny- 3 tatami mat) room to yourself, with a little closet, window, and a tiny TV. Futon was thicker and comfier than some places I’ve stayed at. You don’t have to bring the sheets downstairs when you check out. Lots of people hanging out in the common area, which was nice. There’s a TV with several retro game systems. Cool art on the walls all over the building. Staff was nice and helpful (especially Tatsuya, who speaks great English). The rooftop is nice for drying your clothes, or getting some sun and exercise. You can also use the (small) public bath at the adjacent Hotel Taiyo. The place is slightly run-down, but clean. A lot more so than Peace House Sachi. Only downside was the location- 30 minute walk or 15 minute train ride to Shinsaibashi, and a little further to Dotonbori. Shinsekai is easy walking distance though. Overall, I’d definitely stay here again!
