          Great location and amazing hostel! Highly recommend! ”

          Amazing amazing location if you’re going to Universal studios, dotonbori/Namba, and Nara/Kyoto, super convenient. Many restaurants and 7-11 nearby too. There are many things you can do in this hostel: rent traditional clothing with photography, ask them to send you a postcard one year later, and drink traditional sake in the lobby. Super clean and amazingly equipped with BREAKFAST (!) and you can even rent a hair curler— how rare for hostels! Counter hosts speak good English too. Really loved this place, the only thing I couldn’t get used to was the fact that the futon was a little hard to sleep on.

          Tranquil but lively accomodation”

          I got lucky and landed all 4 nights wiithout anyone else in my dormitory and hopefully it does and does not happen to others as this place was really good as you were a 30 second walk to JR Nishikujo as well as a really good Takoyaki spot next to it. Staff were friendly, especially Alan! Beds were comfortable, was really greatful for the Guest PC there as this really helped me plan my trip back home. Also coffee and alcohol are nicely priced and really good, Melbournians, this place does justice to our coffee back home.

          This is the most comfortable hostel I've ever stayed in. It's highly recommended to stay in. It's super suitable for group travel and star chasing little sisters to watch con together. It's clean and tidy. It's very close to the subway station and lives in a quiet area. There's no barrier to communication and it can help me collect express delivery. It's really troublesome for the landlord. If I return to Osaka next time, I'll definitely choose this house

          Hands down the best backpackers hostel I've ever stayed at (and I've stayed at plenty of them). Spacious rooms, clean facilities, complete amenities, great location close to JR Nishikujo station, excellent and helpful staff. Will definitely stay here again.

          The best hostel for us”

          I really love this hostel and I’m sure to go there again. Staff can speak English well. Hostel near Nishikujo station. Very easy to travel in Osaka and Kansai. If this hostel has free breakfast, I will happy more. Thanks!

          Great place to stay. ”

          The staff here are friendly, know English, and are very helpful. Both dorm-type rooms I've stayed in have been very nice, clean and quiet. There's even a sink, mirror, and trash can inside each room. Room slippers are available. The shower rooms have everything you need, and you can ask for extra (free) toiletries at the front desk. The coffee/bar/lounge area on the first floor is a great place to relax and chill, meet new people, and enjoy a drink or snack. I highly recommend Hostel Jin, and will definitely stay here during my future trips to Osaka. It's conveniently located just down the street from a JR train station where you can easily access Osaka Station or USJ.

          Excellent private rooms”

          Second time in twelve months to be at Hostel Jin (and I will again consider it the next time I'm in Osaka). I haven't tried the common rooms but the private rooms in the top two floors are excellent - seems like a furnished condo unit. Highly recommended!

          Wise choice”

          Good location for Universal Studio: If you are looking for a place to stay nearby the Universal Studio with not expensive cost, this is a wise choice. It is far from the Universal Studio just a few stations. Also, if you want to go to visit other attractions, you can take a train. It is not that difficult but it will take a bit time over 40 mins. A pretty hostel: Inside the hostel, I like the decoration and atmosphere all around including that pretty lobby. Convenient facilities: They provides all facilities quite good with small details such as cotton buds, sanitary pads, plug converters, and so on. Overall I like this place and recommend you for staying. However, if I want to mention for improvement, it is about the smell and fragrance in bedrooms, bathrooms and restrooms. I don't like the smell since my first step into. Especially, in the bedroom, they allow us to put shoes and somebody hanged a stinky towel in the room. That was a big point to be aware of.

          perfect! ”

          We,three girl- friends stayed at a room with 1 bunkbed and tatami floor. We were very pleased about the location which is only 2 staions away from USJ. Plus,Hostel Jin is located in small town,so we could not here any noises but train's which was absolutley good to feel Japanese atmospheres. We also absolutely satisfied about clean facilities and services. It was much better than expensive ,cold,and dirty hotels in the city. I would love to go & stay at Hostel Jin again in the future. One thing i want to share about is....that there are not many restaurants or pubs around the hostel but you can find nice ISAKAYA near NISHIKUJO train staion.

          All the things location, transportation, facilities in the room, service are really good”

          The shops nearby included supermarket, food shop are good to go and try, there is a market open till 00:00. The experience in hostel Jin are excellent, the facility in the room are really good and new which were well functioned, big enough for two person. The queen bed was big enough for two girl , maybe a little bit small for men , suggest for those to the get room with two single bed. The room was quite so no need to worry about the noise. The food in the super market were also good to try, the room included micro wave, cooking stove and frigerator so it is convenient to store and reheat the food. The hostel just few minutes from JR which directly access from the airport station and easily access to other site viewing. The staff were nice and helpful. The security around the neighbourhood was safe. Highly recommend to my fd. Haha

          Very strategic n awesome place ”

          I love this place! This hostel is a bit unique as it has sink to brush teeth, wash face or wash hands. Bed is clean n comfy. Laundry n dryer machine is available although it’s only 1 set. Lounge area is my biggest favourite. I love the setting and how it was placed, decor and yet has its function that brings out cosyness by chillax at the lounge area. Their pantry area is just in the room that comes with microwave n can probably do some light cooking although I have not touch their stove for cooking at all. Keep it up, JIN hostels!!
