  • You're paying for what you get here. I love the fact that it's just a small room.. not a dorm. So we only need to share the facilities.. not the bedroom, which is nice. The bedroom has good air-conditioning. I slept on top of the bedsheets at zero degrees. Staff are helpful. Free coffee. Lots of brochures. Wii system. Kitchen. Japanese spa/onsen. 1 minute walk to the 2 train stationstation. Decent looking female asian patrons, not just gaijin. Easier to understand the system than other hostels.

  • A very simple hotel built in the heart of Shin-Imamiya. Very simple hotel, has a very quaint early 2000s vibes to it. Location wise, it's really easy if you're familiar with Japan's public transport, but it's quite a distance from Osaka's main central station. Staff too, are really friendly. The cleanliness however, can be improved. But of course, this is because it's a cheap to-go hotel. Most of the guest are people from their own country who's just staying one night. Facilities wise

  • Not a terribly enjoyable stay. The Hotel is located in a rather dirty neighborhood with no notable landmarks nearby. The room I stayed in always had a disgusting smell in it that gave me an instant headache. The bathroom (1 per floor) is cramped and dirty, and for some reason shared by both genders. There were only 2 toilets (1 western, 1 japanese) and 1 urinal in the bathroom which didn't seem like enough for a floor with almost 10 rooms. If you're desperate or not staying long, go elsewhere.

  • Overall the location is quite good and the staff is quite helpful. But the cleanliness of the toilet is fair only. Also as a girl, it is very inconvenient and embarrassing to share the same bathroom with boys.

  • It was a lot of drunk homeless people in the area, probably the worst part of Osaka

  • A pleasant stay. The smoking room could have done with some spray to freshen it up.

  • The place feels a little dirty and in the hallways a faint smell of cigarette is perceived. Eventhough, the staff is great; and for the price is a very nice option (cheaper and better than other hotels in the area).
