A really lovely hostel for a great price. Excellent bedrooms and bathrooms, really nice communal area with a great coffee shop/bar downstairs. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Osaka!

I usually Airbnb but I decided to try out hostel for the first time here. U-En is easy to get to, maybe 2-3 minutes walk from a subway station. The location is quite charming. Downstairs is a cafe that offers breakfast, and drinks. I didn't try anything in the cafe but the staff were very friendly and helpful whenever I...

The hostel is easy to reach by public transport and is located in a nice, calm street. Downstairs is a cool bar where you can eat and drink and hang out. I stayed in a capsule style dorm which I loved. The capsule has a curtain which you can shut for some privacy.

This hostel is absolutely incredible! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. I stayed for one night with friends while visiting Osaka- we booked into a 12 bed dorm- each guest gets there own nook style bed which makes it very private! Each come with a light, power cord, mirror and a safe! - the only bad thing...

The hotel has a typical japanese atmosphere. The situation is great, because close to the hostel there are supermarkets and restaurants. It is situated in a narrow street close to train and tube stations. Hostel is quiet. Fantastic option to enjoy Osaka.

We stayed in a double room and the room, toilets and bathroom were very clean. The standout for us however was the staff. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they even let us stay in the common room and have a few cups of tea after checking out.

Stayed two nights here in a private double room in January 2016. This place is a solid example of a traditional Japanese hotel. The rooms are much more basic than other Japanese style hotels, where this one only contained the futon and a light in What was a smallish room for two people. The futon itself was fine for a...

First of all, this hostel gives the most helpful directions I've ever gotten on how to find it on foot from the nearby station (JR Fukushima) - it's impossible to get lost if you follow their directions from the station.
