MAYU from Japan
Stayed 1 night in December 2021

The staff was polite and good.”

Is it really okay to stay at this price (around 1500 yen)? It was close to the station and the staff seemed friendly and polite. The room was clean and the shower room was also clean. Although check-in is at 15:00, when I went to leave my luggage before that, they gave me the key on the spot and told me to enter from a different door after 22:00. I was able to complete the check-in process by writing my name and learning how to use the facilities. The place where they kept my luggage was inside the sliding door at the front desk. It was big enough to fit many suitcases. There is also an elevator, so it is not difficult to carry things around. The only downside was that I stayed on the top bunk of the bunk bed, and the stairs were a bit shaky and scary to climb. It's more like sliding than shaking. I think it would be better if they could fix it. This time, I used it from Tokyo, but I would definitely like to use it when I travel to Osaka.

After the COVID-19 pandemic”

I feel that this type of hotel is becoming a place for homeless people to gather and become their daily space. In the case of Osaka, it is probably more noticeable as you go south, and the hotels in the Shin-Imamiya and Shinsekai areas are returning to their original dormitory-like conditions. The hotel in Nipponbashi closed this spring for that reason. I used to stay at this hotel regularly before the pandemic, and when I stayed there for the first time in a while before it closed, I was a little confused by the changes. The interior of the hotel, divided by curtains, had a strange smell and was extremely unsanitary. And at the entrance of the hotel, there was a notice that it would be closing this spring and that guests should pack up and leave by then. This hotel is not as bad as Namba, but I stayed here twice recently and even though the bed looked clean at first glance, I could feel the presence of mites to the point where I woke up itching. They said they cleaned the mattress this spring, but it was no different this time. I stayed for three nights, so as a last resort, I bought a camping sheet at a home center and put it on the bed to sleep on top of it. There may not be many people, but there are clearly elderly people who use this hotel as their living space, and I happened to be next to one of them, so when I went in and out of the room after 10 PM, I was yelled at.

Very good!”

I had a negative impression of the Kaosan Group, but after staying here, my opinion completely changed. The staff at the front desk were very polite, and the facilities were clean (even though the building is old). The beds are also surrounded by wooden boards, giving a sense of privacy like a private room!

I tend to stay at different hotels and hostels in Osaka. I liked this one and I will try to book with them again. The facilities were clean and the showers did not have that annoying water timing function. The bed was comfy and the place felt safe. My only issue is the kitchen, I have stayed in hostels with better kitchens. I liked that they had games you could rent. The staff was nice and I thought it was cute when they tried to talk in Spanish with me (Mexican). I would recommend this place!

It was perfect.. just 1 thing”

Booked for 10 days here. I loved everything like really! Except the staffs are really noisy when theyre cleaning the room. They clean the rooms every morning and it’s really noisy they should have minimized the noise or maybe just clean the room before night time just to be sure no one’s disturbing the people who’s sleeping. Also when they are cleaning the room, the staff keeps talking to their co-worker which is really loud 😫 But would still recommend this hostel!
