Great hostel”

Nerarel Hostel Namba is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed. It is very accessible because it's located near to Namba station and both Kuromon Market and Shinsaibashi are within walking distance. Staff are really nice! The facilities it provides, e.g. shower and toilet, are clean. I was surprised that it also provides cleansing oil and cleaning foam for guests and we can even borrow hair iron from the reception! Highly recommended!

Very accessible to the attractions in Osaka.”

The hostel is so near the main attractions in Osaka (Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi). I had difficulty finding this hostel at first as I got lost looking for the right exit. The private room assigned to me has window and has view of the street. It was autumn at time time and the room gets colder even I did not on the aircon, it was so chilly. The hostel provides complete amenities and has free breakfast which i did not have time to avail as i need to leave early in the morning. The room is spacious enough for 2 with big luggage. The bed and pillow is not hat comfy as it is to hard. The staff assigned that time has difficulty speaking in english and has a hard time explaining to me the directions. The plus factor of this hostel is really the location.

Great location”

Cons : 1.kitchen not always clean,you can see the rubbish tong is full every morning or night. 2.free coffee is available ONLY when the staff is there,not apply if you having early breakfast before 8am. 3.no free luggage storage after check out.I suppose they don't have enough space. Pros 1.very close to nankai station,just take u 2 mins to the platform!! 2.lots of budget restaurants around,daiso,Lawson is less than 1 min walking distance 3.A general price charge for washing machine is an added value 4.dotonbori ,muji,namba walk is just along the road,very convenient to shop around. 5.storage luggage at a reasonable price after check out,is cheaper than you put in the namba station. 6.i never wait for the usage of toilet n shower room and they provide all amenities you need,even a towel a day! I would definitely come back again if I visit Osaka again!!

Worth it”

Pros: location and staff were both perfect. It’s just right smack on the busy area of Namba and just a few minutes walk to Dotonbori. Nankai airport express is just across the street and the subway and JR lines are just about 5 minutes away. Cons: rooms are a bit small and walls are a bit thin so expect to hear people talking from their rooms.

Everything really nice. The only downside is that they keep the dorm rooms incredibly hot. The common area is comfortable, lots of manga, good laundry for 500 yen, awesome showers and available toiletries, impeccably clean, and the location is in the heart of Namba. I would definitely recommend and stay again!

Small Room, Excellent Location”

Room was really small, but for the price it was worth it. A little problem with the noise as you could hear what’s happening outside the room. The bed could use a topper since it’s a bit hard on the back. Location was great. It’s right outside Namba Station, very near Dotombori and many train lines along it. Other than the one time I had to wait in line for the shower, everything else was fine.

Stayed for 10 nights in total, had 2 separate bookings and the staff helped me arrange for the same bed so I wouldn't have to move. Location is good, next to the train station (Osaka was a base for me to explore other parts of Japan via rail). Walking distance to Donki! Kitchen is small but clean and well-equipped. They rearranged the book shelves (full of comics) while I was staying there, and the seating area became more spacious. Showers are great. Full height mirrors and bright lighting also great.

This place is near namba walk and definitely close to Dotonbor (about 10-15min walk) Overall this place is good. We booked a private room for 4 but we did not realized it was the smallest private room we have ever been. Since we are having 4 medium sized luggage, it is kind of difficult to walk around in the room. Apart from that, this is a great place.

This hotel located just less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest Namba station. Surrounded with shops and a restaurant which you can have a nice local style breakfast. Around 10-15 mins walk to Kuromon markets which you can indulge various of delicious local food. Bathrooms is not many and you might need to wait or take turn for bathing when there are many people around. Room noise isolation is not good, you may hear noise from rooms beside if the occupants are talking loudly.
