I spent here 3 nights in 2 different moments of my journey in Japan. The location is ok (5 min from shin-osaka train station) and easy to find (don't understand some critics in previous reviews..).
the japanese style public bath is an excellent feature when just landing in kansai airport from europe. free wi fi, big lockers, english speaking staff (very friendly and keen to help) tidy, nice rooms. generally speaking price is worth it, altough curfew can be a problem for some people I dare to say it's the cheapest option in osaka, so of course there are pros and cons.
great view from the 10th floor but you can skip breakfast: better choices even inside the train station - but hey: it's an hostel after all. I'd reccomend it for a short stay.
