    The staff was very helpful and nice, everything was pretty clean and if you want to travel around in a bike, there is a possibility of lending a bike for a whole day for just 500 yen!

    Nice and cozy”

    Comfy beds, lovely and cozy basement, friendly and helpful staff :) Location is very good too, close to three main subway stations, and they even have bike rental with special price for guests. It’ll be good if they have more bathrooms in the same floor (we stayed in a mix room). And it was great to have a double bed and space to put some of your things in your own bed-space! I’d definitely stay here again.

    Very good hostel where to stay in Osaka”

    Senba Hostel is very good connected with the main points of the city by subway (5 min by foot from the hostel). It's a very, very clean hostel and with a comfortable bed to rest after a long day. And there are all the facilities that a traveller needs like a kitchen, washing and dryer machine, bicycle for rent... we absolutely recommend it!

    Ok hostel, seems run down. Shared space stuffy. Beds good a/c in room so better than expected. ”

    Husband thought it was great value. I prefer a place with a more usable shared space but if you are just using it to sleep it is decent. The beds are good. Though we only got one pillow. But despite Osaka being hot outside the room wasn't stuffy even when it was fairly full.

    Good”

    Only a piece of paper stating bed number was given for self check-in. We had no idea how to get to the shower room. From the map pasted on the door, it stated that the shower rooms are on the second floor and the lift couldn't open at the second floor. We took the stairs but the door was locked. We had to ask others in the same dorm for more information. Suggest more information can be provided regarding the facilities for self check-in. Had to make your own beds and shower rooms have fixed timings to be used. Small space at the corner of the room to hang your clothes and towels. Location is pretty good; around 15-20mins walk to Dotonbori/ Namba.

    Quite different from our first stay”

    Not as comfy as our first stay back in 2017. This time we have to make our own bed. Imagine we arrived at midnight around 1am, we were so exhausted and we have to make our bed quietly in a dorm. Pillow cases are easy, but putting on bedsheet and blanket's quilt cover took us quite some time. Is not easy to make huge movement / action in such a small bunk bed without making noise. (if we din put it on we will get penalty) Also, we are not allowed to take shower after 12.00 am, so we both ended up to bed without taking shower after such a long journey. I think we both wont stay there again for our next visit.

    Great location for what you are paying for.”

    This location is great in Osaka where it is close to a station to get around. My boyfriend and I decided to rent bikes which were extremely cheap, 500 yen for the day that got us everywhere very easily and relaxing. We preferred riding around seeing the city rather than using the Osaka Metro. Close to a market strip which is a 7 minutes walk. Everything was very easy to get around and the staff are very welcoming in sharing recommendations and getting you exactly what you wanted and needed.

    Brilliant hostel for the price. Location is right in the centre, 10 minute walk to Dotonbori. The hostel was very clean, staff were cleaning regularly to keep it that way. Staff were brilliant, helpful with any questions, and we're friendly to chat with. Facilities were great, kitchen was well setup with everything you may need if cooking, showers and bathrooms were excellent, stocked with soap, shampoo and conditioner! as well as a table tennis table and heaters in the common room.

    A little too cosy for us. ”

    We reached the hostel around 11pm+ due to flight delay. Staff was really sweet to paste an envelope with handwritten welcome greeting and guide on the door for us. The location is quite near to subway if you know how to get around. The hostel was very clean but felt quite claustrophobic. I booked a bed for 2 but we could hardly turn when we sleep. Our bed was on lower deck and the “ceiling” was low. I feared each time the guys on the upper deck turned around, it sounded as though they are going to fall on us. I ended up not sleeping the whole night. Thankful we only booked for a night. But if you’re couple on budget or solo traveller, this might be a good choice for you.

    Senba Hotel is very strategic in its location. It is not too far from where everything is. It is located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood. I appreciated that. It is in the middle of two subway stations so you have more options of which you would like to choose, depending on where you want to go.

    On travelling, 1st thing I look for a hotel/hostel is a clean toilet and bathroom and a comfortable bed/bedroom. Senba hostel didn't fail us. Even in a shared room we still have our own privacy and other guests respect the rules therefore silence has been followed accordingly. The staffs are kind and can speak English as well. Walking distance to subway for easy transportation. Cheaper price with a quality of service. Thank you.
