I was here for two nights and loved the place. The staff were so nice and helpful, the atmosphere was great, I had everything I needed and felt relaxed being here. This is probably one of the best hostels you can find.

It was very comfortable during my trip in Osaka.
It has spacious bathrooms, shampoo, conditioner and dryers.
(tower is not free, so you'd better bring a only tower)
I like the location of this hostel. It is located in front of a school, so I could hear laughter of children every morning. It was so nice.
and all staffs are so kind!

The hostel was very clean and has an excellent location. Showers were hot and strong and the bed space had a lot of privacy if you're the shy type.
The staff were incredibly helpful and were willing to go out of their way to help. They could translate Japanese for you and would help you make bookings for places that required you to call (If you can't speak Japanese yourself). All in all, an excellent hostel and would definitely stay there again.

Pro:
- Super clean, well secured dorms
- Great kitchen area
- Showers were hot and strong!
- ¥500 Bike Rental!
- Great location, it’s a straight walk to the hot spot of town!
- Vending machine in the lobby
- The rooftop is Devine for morning chill out.
- Very homely vibe.
- THE STAFF!!

Cons:
- The wooden floors are very well sanded to the point were I slipped over a few times haha.

My story:
I stayed here for 3 nights with my buddy Sam and it was a delight! Loved this hostel and all the staff. The staff know Osaka very well and can give you awesome recommendations, they’re also very very eager to help and even go that extra effort to make sure you’re doing well. I was constantly leaving my phone and other items around and the staff knew it was mine and would always return it with a cheeky smile ( ◠‿◠ )! I was super super sick on checkout day and they let me sleep it off in the lobby way past checkout time! Even giving me cold towels for my head and checking up on me when I left.

Thank you so much Hostel Mitsuwaya! I’ll never forget the times we had together!

You have everything you need at this place. The beds are nice and comfortable and have all you need within the bed frame (Locker, lights, powerpoints). It's kept very clean and there's a common area where you can sit socialise with the rest of the guests. The staff go out of their way to help guests with finding what they need. They even called restaurants and shops to help me with my questions. Definitely recommend it.
