          Best choice I ever made”

          Ken and his wife were really kind, place is very ok, near shinimamiya station

          If you really want the experience in living in a Japanese house, then this is the best choice. The owners Ken and his wife were really kind and nice to me, they are very accommodating. I was even very late for my check-in time but they waited for me. The place is quite clean, and pretty much everything you need is there (clean bathroom, wifi, power outlet, water). I pretty much just wanted a good place to stay, but I intended to be outside most of the time. but the place was really accessible for me, the staff is very kind. The area is safe even at night (i came late like 11pm++) I was even able to meet other travelers by chance (Melanie and Rafael :D) and if I ever have a trip for Osaka again, i'd go back and book here that's for sure! Tip: the nearest JR Station is Shinimamiya, the Tennoji station is a bit farther.

          cleanliness, atmosphere, close to JR Station

          Great hostel based in a big, old, traditional japanese house. The place was very clean and well maintained. I decided to try this hostel for a quick, one night stay but finally stayed 2 nights. The host kindly accomodated my last minute request. He was very helpful and courtous, waiting for my late arrival, helped with laundry and even brought electric heater to dry clothes inside the room as the weather was rainy. Rooms, kitchen, showers were spotless, the bunk bed was comfortable (I was lucky to be only person in the room as it is dorm style) and the overall experience was fantastic. Thank you!

          Mr Kim is very good person but he's very quiet. So please take effort to talk to him if you want to know more about the place. Bed is very comfortable with good pillow and futon.

          Convenient place for foods and ShinSekkai street. Just becareful when first looking for the guest house. We accidentally entered a red light district, but luckily it's morning. Overall it's a very good place, very free to come back and go out any time you want.

          Nice japanese style guest house.”

          comfortable room. Nice environment. Helpful landlord.

          I love the Japanese style accommodation, and this fits what I wanted. I stayed in a family room with my parents and my brother. The room is clean and very comfortable. very helpful. The only thing that needs improvement is the bathrooms; it should have more bathrooms to handle number of guests if possible, or have a private bathroom for the family room. And the toilet on the second floor needs to be fixed, the washing mode is not working. The overall stay for me was okay. I was happy :)

          Convenient room”

          Close to train station

          The hostel was fine for the price and the owner was nice, if a bit distracted while I was there (he was setting up new bunk beds in the kitchen area which seemed a bit of a weird place to sleep considering other guests might disturb sleepers if they wish to use the kitchen, but maybe it's work in progress? This space seemed like it would have been great as a common area for guests to socialise) I think a curfue would have been nice as one night I was awoken at 2am by a guest checking in to my bunk room. The next night some women in the room next to my bed (separated by very thin Japanese doors) kept their lights on and chatted until after midnight. Someone was smoking in the rooms that night as well (which I don't think was allowed but the smell was distinctive) The area was walking distance (~20min) to Tennoji station, and the Zoo, Temple etc. Which was great but the area itself was very dated. In saying that I felt totally safe here, there was lots of kids and old people around, just to get a bit of tourist life you'll want to walk a bit). Overall a satisfactory hostel but with a few touch up to consider the needs of backpackers it could be great.

          Overall stay was fine. Difficult to find the guest house, you need to google in advance. Only face towel available, no bath towel and basic toiletries. Face towel was retrieved the night before check-out. Check out at 11am is too early. No water use for shower from 11pm.

          Decent place”

          The host cannot speak English thus we have to use Google translate for communication. Internet was broken for 2 days, then the host shared the hotspot via her mobilephone for us in the last day. It was Japanese Golden week, so every other hotels were fully booked, and we have to stay at this place.
