    Very strategic location. Room is just too crowded & there's no space to pack your luggage near your bed (you should bring your luggage to the other empty room on the same floor). The shower & toilet was a lil bit dirty as I saw some tourists from a country (can't mention) use it bad.

    Convenient, hostel is near to a lot of restaurants and shops. Of course, the hygiene of the rooms is under my expectation. I am not sure about the exact time the staff would clean up the rooms. More importantly, lights would be switched off after 11pm. It becomes very difficult to go back to my bed . Beware of it. And, the hostel would just offer everyone bread, tea, coffee for breakfast (6am - 9am). You better have your breakfast outside the hostel.

    Friendly Staff, Best Location with Good Value of Money!”

    The staff are so kind, we stay there until on 1st & 2nd of Ramadhan. They offer us early breakfast to eat. We are thankful for the kindness & thoughtful for us. The place is also near to Dotonbori, hence no need to walk too long, just 5 min to find food & good scenery. There are free towel & face towel provided + mineral upon check in :) You can wash you clothes as washing machines is provided & 100 yen for the soap.

    Friendly staff & Good location with good value of money”

    I wrongly choose the date to stay at the hostel & already paid. Thankfully the staff was really nice to allocate vacant bed for me & my sister. We are really thankful for that, plus it was during Golden Week, hence to get a vacant bed with reasonable price is impossible. We feels safe to stay here as its near to Dotonburi hence no need to trouble for long journey. There is separate dorm located especially for female only hence we as Muslim lady feels secure about our aurah. Due to this, we book this hostel again after return from Tokyo and at that time its a day before Ramadhan (fasting month) start. The staff inform us that we can get our early breakfast from them since the breakfast time start at 6am but we need to eat earlier around 3am. I am really thankful for the kind thought & warm hospitality provided by the hostel :) For sure, next time I will stay at this place again as it give a good memory for me :)

    Not a very happy stay”

    I was requested for lower bunk during my online reservation, but it wasn't arranged for me. When I went to the dorm, there is no proper shelves for shoes keeping, everyone just leave the shoes on the floor and hence, not so nice to smell... When I got into the dorm and trying to put my stuff on my bunk, it was found very messy, obviously no cleaning was done after the last person checked out. It made me really disappointed and unsatisfied towards this hostel

    Awesome Location”

    I picked this place because we only had 2 short nights in Osaka. The location is superb (there were no hotels near where we stayed so I had to chose the hostel option. Compared to my hostel experience in Tokyo, Lore has less discipline and maybe the layout of the beds were in a way that seems to have a more noisy environment. I can hear the person opposite me packing at 6am in the morning which woke me up (the hostel did warn me abut noise issue though - suggest to use earplugs). Besides that all is good and we did have a good stay. I cant say I would stay for a long trip though.

    Pros: Really good location with a good price. Everything is provided (including a simple breakfast). Staff were very helpful and friendly all the time. They allowed me to store my huge 28" luggage at reception area during my 2 days stay as it was too much a hassle to fit into the dormitory Cons: The design of the dormitory wasn't very condusive to exclude sound and light from other guests in the dorm. I could barely sleep for the two nights I was in Osaka. Compared to my 5 nights stay in a Tokyo hostel, I had better sleep in Tokyo.

    Convenient location, good facilities”

    Mostly impressed by the location. Easy to access the Nankai line rapid train to the airport/ Wakayama, Kintetsu line to Nara and the line to Kobe (which you will likely make day trips to). This is made even better by the underground shopping street which connects the Namba and Nipponbashi stations together so that you don't have to drag your luggage on the roads (just check which exit is the nearest). The hostel is located in one of the inner streets of Dotonbori, which makes it easy to walk to the Shinsaibashi and Namba area to eat, shop and enjoy the nightlife. (especially if you're a solo female traveller like me, you'd feel fairly safe as the streets are still alive at 11pm). Some food places nearby like Ichiran (must try ramen place) are also open 24 hours. Hostel itself is clean (dependant on other tourists- some may dirty the place), I stayed in the female only floor. Lights out at 11pm. also provides: free laundry service (BYO detergent and hangers), free luggage storage (even after check out)

    I thought i wouldnt like this hostel coz the ladies room was in the basement and i booked a bed in 6-bed female dorm but when i checked in it turns out that they dont have 6-bed dorm but a 12-bed dorm. It was already been paid for and i will have to find another place to stay if i didnt take the bed. So i just took it. The common room makes up for it anyway. It was a nice new hostel in dotonbori area, near glico, shopping, restaurant, subway, and few minutes walk to nankai airport line. The toilet is clean, as well as the separate shower/laundry area and it never gets crowded even if i think there is almost 30 bunk bed on the ladies floor. The staff are nice here. They let me stay in my bed few hours past the check out time and thay let me stay at the common room on the 2nd floor until i decided to go to the airport. I would definitely stay here again IF, read IF they take off the wood in the lower bunk bed and replace it with a curtain or maybe just replace the whole bed. Seriously, it was hell getting in and out of the lower bunk bed. My head hit the upper bunk few times whenever i go out , even if i rely on the ladder of the upper bunk. And i cannot move inside the bunk coz it makes too much noise which will wake up the other guest especially late at night.

    The cleanness place was easy for me to sleep well. Except in some day, there was a mosquito flying into bunk and made me mad. Fortunately, it is stupid and moves slowly so I killed it soon. Second, there is wooden side at the down bunk so that it is difficult to move in and out. Suggest you to remove that. Exclude these two defects, I like this hostel near Dōtonbori, lots of choices of food to eat. Great bathroom, toilet, and bunk. In next time, I am going to recommend my friends to book and go with me here.
