It's convenient to stay here if you plan to travel to Kyoto or Kobe. The staff were super friendly and the room was very clean. This...

A good, basic backpacker hostel near fukushima station. The staffs are helpful, friendly and speak good English. The room are clean, however the mattresses are a biiiit on the thin side. This hostels don't have lift so if you have big luggage you're going to have a work out getting on your room. The bathroom is on the second and...

Considering its price, location and amenities it's a very good hostel, close to Osaka main station, 10-15 min walking, many new restaurants and bars around the area, a convinience store just 10 m from the hostel, the dorms all with curtains, lockers, so on. Just 5 min walking from a JR station so you can get to many parts of...

I had never stayed in a backpackers before. I am 40 years old and wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say, this was such a cool place to stay and I cannot wait to come back. Firstly, I was emailed instructions of what to do if I arrived there after reception closing time and also a map, and...

Good, basic, clean little backpackers very near the station and easy to find. The girls who work at here are fantastic, very helpful and speak good English which I really did appreciate as I only, shamefully, have about 10 words of Japanese. The only real criticism I have is that the beds are very hard and the doona I had...

The staff was sooo friendly! The rooms are really nice! What i loved the most about this hostel is that Japanese people could come in the evening to have a chat with the guests and it was a really nice culture exchange :) I even made a very dear friend there that I met again 2 years later! :)
