Highly recommended. It has an extremely comfortable bed and a personal curtain that allows proper privacy. Staffs were really kind, nice and helpful. Location is the best. I don't usually leave a comment on accomodations but this place makes me do it. If you are looking for a place around 15usd in Osaka, this is the one you gotta choose.

Awesome Location ”
Just a few minutes wallk from Nankai Namba Station as well as Subway Lines. Good places to eat nearby and walking distance to Dotonbori. The Bed was large enough. Wifi was fast. Toilet was clean and loved the Japanese toilet with heater and bidet. Bathing amenities was well provided. No elavator. No drinking water facility. Staff leaves early at 9pm and opens at 9am the following day. You have to tell them in advance if you will be checking inn late. Overall it was a great stay. Still on top of my list if Booking a group on my next travel to Osaka.

the location is very convenient as you can walk to the downtown within 20 mins. The staff is friendly but it is hard to reach them out of the working hours. If you are coming at midnight or in the early morning, make sure you have enough communication with the owner first. And no water is provided inside the hotel. ( but they have a nice terrace on the roof)

Great location, just 10 minutes walk to the Dotonbori. Friendly staffs as well. However the sink is located inside the room and people were using the hairdryer at 6-7ish in the morning, not very pleasant when you are trying to have some sleep. It would be better if they can provide a small shelf that is locker to each bed. Overall it was still a great hostel.

This hostel is only a few steps away from Namba station and very convenient to get to the shopping places. It is very clean, organized and spacious for a hostel. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. I wouldnt mind staying here again next time for the savings and the value it gave me. I was very comfortable.

the only downside of the dorm is that you would need to carry the luggage up the stairs as there are no lift available. other than that, this dorm is recommended for solo traveller or friends. recommended to request for the bed below since its a double deck bed.

Cheap with excellent service”
Pros: It is ok if you stay with 6-7 persons in one small floor. the bed is large enough for one person. the room is so clean and there is a light and two adapter for your phone charging and notebook. The location is very close to nambe station exit no.6 and there is one onvernient store(Family mart) nearby the hotel. The guy at the reception is very nice service. Cons: They do not have the elevator for this hotel. the large lauggage will not suit for this esp. when you have to climb up to the 5th floor. the female room has the 2nd floor. the mixed rooms are start from 3rd floor. You should have earplug when sleeping because it is very annoy when someone wake up and disturb your privacy. there is two toilet and one shower room (with heater) per one floor. you may take more time for queuing for showering.

First time solo traveler”
1) Proximity to the tourist destinations in Osaka. Namba is a very busy and lively area. Easy access to Dotonbori. 2) Very clean and traveler friendly dormitory. 3) Privacy even in mixed dormitories
For a first time solo traveler like me, the stay was really enjoyable. Had a great time staying in this hostel/dormitory. I was scared at first since it is my first time to share a room with other people I do not know. However, I felt really safe and with enough privacy because of the curtains. Bed was really comfy. You also have your own reading light and plug inside your bunk bed. Just keep in mind that if your are checking in beyond their office ours you have to inform them beforehand since they have to give you self check in reminders. Overall, I recommend this to female solo travelers worried about their safety like me.😄

Stayed in female dorm with 8 beds and most of amenities well equipped. Good location and Bed was comfortable and staffs were very kind. But a lift should be built for guests to be stayed higher than 2nd floor (stairs were very steep) and they should put more effort to clean beds since I saw someone's hair on the blanket of my bed.
