              Been to Osaka twice and I must say that for the location, this place is such a steal. If you plan to have 1 day out of town trips with Osaka as base, this has a really good location. Will definitely be back! Owner is very helpful, organized (on how he manages, cleans & restocks supplies) and hands-on on his establishment. And yes, his english is good. Not for picky travellers but for those looking for a budget accommodation with a hassle free stay, seriously, consider this.

              Just the best low-price place to stay in Osaka”

              I was among their last customer in 2016 and I loved it. I stayed for 3 nights right and left on Dec 31. Single bed - Non smoking room • Room: the size was perfectly comfortable for 1 person; clean, fully equipped; heater was working well. Nothing was really there to be complained about. •Location: Just about 3-min walk away from Tennoji station. You can literally go everywhere in Osaka from this station without feeling far. It's kinda in the center of the city. • Staff: It's more like a self service place, so actually you won't see the staff that much. But whenever you see them, they are as nice as they can be. • Facility: Everything is available for free or with low expense and very cool. You will have to take shower in a different area outside your room, but there is always available space and hot water. In short, it is worth the money and deservingly the perfect place for young independent travelers 🖒

              It was a great place to stay in for the price we paid. Location wise, it was 5 minutes walk to tennoji station (JR Loop). It was slightly further to get to the subway but still manageable by foot. Unlike typical guest houses, there is a lift in this which is convenient for tourists with heavy luggages. Would like to emphasis that there is a basin and toilet bowl/ W.C in your private room. However, the shower is located between Level 1 and 2. There is shower room, which can be locked with 2 cubicles in there. Thus, it is good for couples or families with kids.

You need to use shared bathroom but it's always available when you want to use it. You need to bring your own toothbrush, toothpaste and towel, but these can be bought at the convenient shop around.

Highly recommended a BBQ restaurant(yellow site board) a corner in front the hotel, about 20 second walking distant from hotel.

              Friendly Staff, Early Check In, Cleanliness

              We were there on mid of August for one night stay and our flight touched down in early morning. Thus, we went on and check out the place and possibly drop our baggage there. We did not expect they will allow us for early check in and we were pleasantly surprised that they did allow us for early check in as early as 7am! It happened again a week later after our trip back from Sapporo and Tokyo, we reached at 6:30am and again, the room was ready for us to check in. The staff speaks limited English but definitely very friendly, kind and helpful. Location is good ONLY if you know how to find. It took us half an hour to locate the exact location. Here's a good hint: head to Tennoji Station North Gate, walk until you see a Hotel with Thai restaurant (few streets down the road) and turn into the small alley. You will be able to see Boarding House on your left shortly.

              Expeced Quality with Budget Price”

              Easily Accessible, Affordable Restaurants around, Large Japanese style room

              Basically, treating Boarding House as the place to rest for a few hours at night is perfect as it is very much affordable for budget travelers. However, if you are with high standards, this may not be your choice. The public bath facilities was not very nice. There were flies attaching to the walls and ceilings of the bathroom which is quite disgusting. The room I stayed got a doggy-smell but well I am ok with it since I was just staying for 2 nights. Otherwise, others were nice. Staff was helpful and the location was great.
