So easy to find from Shin Osaka station. Wonderful views of Osaka City from most rooms in the building including kitchen and common area. Delicious breakfast is only 500yen extra and well worth it, I thought. Spacious rooms and personal lockers at no extra charge. Communal bath with charcoal was the perfect way to end a long day of travel....

Location: ~7 min walk from Shin-Osaka train station, where you can get the Shinkansen, JR lines to other cities and the metro within Osaka as well. It was quite a challenge locating the right exit from the huge train station that leads to the hostel as most signs were in Japanese. You can locate it from Pablo Cheese cake shop,...

This place is great for a "in and out" stay - Pros - clean facilities, 24 hr reception, walking distance to shin-osaka station. Cons - there is no wifi in the rooms, lots of rules, no staying up past a certain time, breakfast rules etc.

This is a very clean, quiet and well-run hostel located just a few minutes outside of JR Shin-Osaka station. It's also a good value. There are quite a few regulations while staying at this hostel, which has both its good and bad points. There is a curfew at midnight, so you can't get into the hostel after this time. The...

There are various style rooms available. I chose the Japanese style room available for 6 persons. It was very nice experience to stay in such a Japanese style room. The room was spacious with a small living room and another area for sleeping. There is also en-suite toilet. The best of the stay is the public bath where one can...

Very clean hostel located near Shin Osaka station. The staff speak English to a certain extent so you should not have any problems communicating with them. Good customer service too, but that is a Japanese thing, I've noticed. Issues: - You only have until 00:00 to have a shower. I arrived at the hostel after a long day at 23:57...

The hostel is clean and has strict rules, making it quite safe. There is a curfew from midnight to 6am during which doors are locked however staff were helpful and opened the doors earlier for me since I needed to be at airport by 7am thus needed to leave earlier than 6am. Room-mates were friendly and respectful, room had enough...

A great stay at Shin-Osaka backpackers! I was very impressed with the lovely staff & their overall level of English. The bunk bedrooms were extremely spacious, clean, light & modern. Each bunk bed had its own bedside lamp & shut away curtains. The Japanese bathroom complete with onsen was a great little touch! However, I found it a little strange...
