Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

When I first arrived, I was here for only a few days i didn't think this would be so convenient for me... Wow. .. So I haven't relocated anywhere anymore and it's been about a year now.They are friendly and people are kind. I`m a lucky one. 😁

Ideal place for solo travelers to meet people. Nice common rooms. Free breakfast to meet people. Beds are very solidly made and give great privacy books. Staff is super friendly. Location is right near the heart of lots of entertainment and nightlife/shopping. Great deal for the price.

Very nice staff and comfortable beds. Convenient location (15 min walk from Dontoburi) and trains and in a very safe area. Breakfast is simple (instant coffee, toast) but appreciated! Would recommend!

I came here for two days and stayed in Funtoco. From the door I met Aya, the most lovely girl I’ve ever met in my life 😍 the room, bathroom, everything was clean and cozy. I read the greetings from owners and their child, that made me feel like at home, seems they do this hostel with a soul ❤️ Hotel is very close to city center, shopping streets and metro station with Osaka Loop Like, that is very convenient. I enjoyed my stay in Osaka, this city stolen my heart, and i highly recommend Funtoco for your stay 🙌🏻

Thanks to the Funtoco staff, my stay in Osaka was smooth and pleasant! January is a quiet period, so there was almost nobody in the rooms, so one could also sleep peacefully. The shared living room was convenient as well!

From the get go the staff are really friendly and helpful, the rooms are really clean and have great luggage space. The facilities are exceptional. There’s a kitchen and lounge upstairs to eat. There’s breakfast served every morning for free which is a great help. The beds are quite comfy and have curtains for the added privacy. The staff were a great help with all our questions and knew about the local area really well.
