Fast wifi, a fridge, friendly host and we were able to meet a few people that stayed there. It was close to osaka station which was a major hub for the JR and subway!
Having to pay ¥100 for a shower. We paid for a big twin room and it was still kinda small. We were stood outside for 20 minutes unable to get in the building to check in as they were not answering the doorbell.
For the price the room was perfect. For budget travellers it is perfect. We got our room early and the owners who greeted us were extremely friendly and helpful. Room is quite small, but this was too be expected for the price for Japan.
Room was a bit warm and it's 100 yen for a shower. However, I knew about the shower when booking from other reviews so not a surprise. Showers also worked well with good pressure and temp
I have to say the old couple receiving us were very warm and friendly, Noriko gave us a thorough tour of the building. The common room has a good kitchen, individual food storage lockers and a shared fridge. Decent location, 15-20 min walk from the station and 5 min to a supermarket.
The place is very small, but this you could already see in the pictures. You have to pay for using the shower(100 jpy for 6 minutes), which isn't properly listed on booking. You also have to pay for towels. There are no windows in the room. A fan doesn't count as air-conditioning, so this also is wrongly listed on booking. They have a central air-conditioning for the floor and fans in individual rooms. But the fans blow up alot of dust and left me coughing for most of the night. The place is also dirty, alot of hairs everywhere and dead insects. The 'walls' are made of plywood and even the smallest sounds made by anyone on the floor will wake up a light sleeper, i woke up over 10 times in 1 night. There was also a big gap beneath our door allowing mosquitoes in. I'm aware the price per night is relatively low so you get what you pay, however i feel here it's disproportionate the low price is still too high for what you get. For a little more you can already have a private apartment, which we booked after having stayed 1 of our planned 3 nights, even tho the other nights weren't refundable we really couldn't stay here longer.
The two owners are very nice, very helpful, explain everything in great detail upon arrival. The dormitory is very close to Umeda station (a 10 min walk), and next to a 7 eleven, which is very practical. The area around it is safe.
The room has no windows, and the walls are extremely thin, which means that I could even hear my neighbors opening a bottle of soda. If someone opens their door, you have the impression that they're opening yours. Also, you need to pay 100 Yen for the shower (6 minutes). But it is extremely cheap, and if you use it only to take a shower and to sleep, it is sufficient.
The owners are so nice! :) There is a station that runs the hankyu line 5 min walking distance from the hostel. Domino's is close by. There is also a big free space with a fridge and you can try one a yukata.
The rooms are really small which was okay for us but might be a problem for others. The showers are 100 yen for 6 min. However, the timer does stop when you turn off the water :)
