One of my favorite hotels in the world”

Your own room, with such high standards of cleanliness and efficiency, for this price - in a rich, developed-world city ? I'm becoming a regular guest in this hotel, using it as a base to explore Kyoto and other neighboring cities, or as a place to recover from jet lag before heading off to other parts of Japan. There are numerous similar hotels in this neighborhood, but I suspect Toyo offers the highest quality - like wifi in your room, excellent bathrooms and spacious shower stalls. The staff are SO FRIENDLY and HELPFUL, too.

Perfect! But with a security concern”

Initially wanted to really promote this place. I’m satisfied and i’m happy being here. First 5 nights-perfect But the last night,there was a noisy Korean guy next to my room and i have to admit we can hear him talking on the phone loudly.Its annoying since it was past midnight. Then at 12.30~am, a drunk (probably) Japanese guy slammed on MY door loudly and shook my doorknob,started screaming ‘SLEEEPP!’ I think he mistaken my room since the rooms are VERY close. It was a REALLY scary experience. Having a CCTV on every floor is very good, but if something bad were to happen, the CCTV would not help me at that time.There were no staff to attend the situation. Overall, I wanted to express this concern of mine as a female solo traveller. I need to suggest: 1. Separate Female/Male sections 2. Have staff at night shift Otherwise, The staffs are friendly + nice! The concept + facilities - awesome! Rooms - clean + comfortable! PLEASE improve the security before something unwanted happens.

Value for Money”

The Hotel / Hostel mix was a very pleasant hotel to stay in, with good vibes. Room was decently big for Japan standards and there was even a mini TV inside (though I didnt really use it). Shared facilities like toilets and shower rooms were clean. For ladies, you can use both the unisex and female only showers. Do note it's only on the first floor though. Staff was friendly with passable English and was able to give me recommendations on where to go and places of interest, some being really helpful because they were Festivals which dont really appear on travel sites and more of a local thing. Location is walking distance to both the Metro and JR lines, so you could get to anywhere in Osaka (or other parts of Japan if you really needed to) quite easily. 2 Family Marts nearby, if you wanted some late night snacks or get some essentials. Minor Gripe : I think the room was ready before the 3pm check-in but they just wouldn't let me have the room until then.

Backpacker's Hotel”

This backpacker hotel has charm. It has a creative style. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. At the reception desk played always good music. There is a shower room only for ladies until midnight open. Washing machine and dryer are available. The dryer costs 100 ¥. But drys 50 minutes! So clothes definitely will be dry. The single tatami room had an open closet. It has no aircon, could be a little bit sweat during hot summers. You can smell inside the room, that there is less air circulation. The passageway is cool, so it would be possible to cool the room by sleeping with an open door. And there is a fan in the room. And there is a top for people who don't like big spiders like me. I've seen at night a huntsman spider big as my Hand at the opposite wall, so it just was a teenager. The opposite wall is maybe 2 m away. I think in summertime they'll be bigger. I stayed in the hostel in may. The first few days I slept withopen window. No spiders in my room. But you never know

I only stayed for one night.. sadly! It’s an amazing place and has lots of things to discover. Starting with nice drawings in the whole hostel, different colors and patterns in every toilet and a rooftop I did not visit yet. I hope to come back on my next stay in Osaka to spend more time in all the provided facilities. Don’t forget to check out the ‘do-it-yourself takoyaki’-store around the corner (sometimes opens later than estimated)!!
