The friendly staff was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction of where the good food are. Despite it not being in a central location, it is still very close to everything else, within 5min walking distance to the subway and JR train stations and about 30mins walk to Dotonbori which if you're into the Osaka night life...

it's not located in the prime tourist area but very close to the train (right in front) it's a budget hotel, so no free breakfast (only tea and coffee at the lobby) and they offers cleaning service once per week, just let the reception know you need your room clean before 10am. the lobby is quite spacious, with sofas, TV....

非常骯髒 服務態度非常差 When I arrived the man gave me a room was uncleaned. There was rubbish everywhere and the toilet was very dirty, much more than a public toilet. I told him at the reception and he just said "well, they will clean it soon" and didn't even appalogized. I asked if he could recommend me some public bath or...

Stayed in the dormitory room as a young solo traveller. Only two/three of us in a 6-person room, which is equipped with a toilet and a shower. Amenities are provided. As somebody else mentioned, you can hear the trains passing by but it isn't loud. The staff answered my questions but they often gave me an odd look which made...

I went here with other three girls, so we rent a dorm room. The dorm room is supposed for 6 people, but it's not peak season so we're having a blast for living in that room. The room is pretty spacious and has one toilet, one bathroom, and has a hairdryer!!! We can hear train is coming, but not that...

if you want to stay out of the busier central Osaka area, this is definitely worth your money. situated between JR Shin-imamiya and the Dobutsuen-mae subway station, it gives you the choice to choose which transport to take. for travelers who wants to visit Tsutenkaku Tower and the Shinsekai area, it is walkable from the hotel. the Dobutsuen-mae subway is...

It's a very clean and decent hotel. Rooms looked brand new. The only downside is the train's noise which is a little disturbing if you are a person who need total silence during sleeping. To me, the noise is still bearable (not loud actually). And by the time I reach my room on each night, I felt very tired and...

Nice clean room, however myself and 3 fellow females were horrified when a drunk member of male staff made a loud entrance into our dorm at 2am to sleep in an empty bed there! We were concerned for our safety. We have complained to management but they seem unwilling to take responsinbility or to investigate this further.
