The boss is warm. but Bathroom floor water leakage!!! i booking non smooking room for 2 night but The air is pervaded by a smell [ smoking ]. the room dirty [ dust ], Take a bath for 10 minutes the hot water breakdown[ winter ]. 老板热情但是房间真的太糟糕。 订购禁烟双人房-房内空调总是提供浓厚烟味的空气。房内空气非常不流通,窗户不可打开。床架窗户都有灰尘,我住7号房浴肛漏水,洗澡有供水不足的问题,冬天只有8°,洗澡10分钟就断了热水。洗澡时,肮脏水会从地板渗出。通知老板 老板好像听不懂, 无法换房。住在这里2天 是噩梦。(事后浴室不敢用)我们都在外面温泉会馆洗澡再回酒店

I arrived at the hostel at night after 7pm. I had booked a bed in a mixed room not knowing that the mixed room was in the fifth floor and the access to the room was through an outdoor stairs ( from the fourth to fifth floor) and I am afraid of heights and could not make it. The staff...

The location is near Dotonburi Street and Kuromon Marketplace. Hard to find at first because at night the lampsign was off. We asked local people on the way, and surprisingly nobody knows where is it. We took off from JR Namba, and quite a walk around 10-15mins to reach there. Theres nearer station to get there but its not covered...

Booked a family room online. Upon arrival was informed the family room with bathroom was available for only 1 night and they had arranged the 4 person dorm with shared bathroom just for the 3 of us for the next night. We had arrived earlier than the checkin time and asked if we could leave our bags until the correct...

We stays this hostal 3 nights for Osaka marathon. The location is nearby 道頓堀 and easy to get to the main streets. It is also quiet and clean. The double bed room is small, no TV and fridge. Staffs are all friendly and willing to help us. In short, this Is a basic hostal with decent price.

The dorm was on the top floor and on the last floor level, had steep stairs. The room was small with air condition and only 1...

We stayed in for 3 nights in a double room. The place itself isn't as easy to find out, but once you get it, it's fine and very central. Just be aware of its location (I wasn't) it's on a street full of brothels so quite seedy area, it is however, 2m away from Dotonbori Street. It's not an dangerous...

I've stayed at the 6 dorm room. The room was at the rooftop, and the hostel didn't have elevator. It was the only dorm room from the hostel, and i thought it was a storage room converted to a dorm because at the 4th floor we took a small ladder to the top of the building to reached our room....

This is not so much a hostel as it is a hotel with the attic transformed into a dorm. So dont expect hostel atmosphere. Its also in kinda a dodgy location with rent by the hour hotels and some sex shops surrounding it. I didnt come across any troubles staying here but cant say I'd recommend it.
