landlord, location, price

I was a bit scared before booking this place because I've been reading reviews and some said it's dirty. Actually, I found this place very pleasant. The staff is friendly, kind and helpful. The location is good. If I have another chance to visit Osaka again, I would definitely choose this guesthouse again. It's such a good memory to me.

Food stall, mini market, hallal shop along the route to the guesthouse. Sleep peacefully because situated at small alley. Mrs Nami is very kind and helpful and speak English.Mostly foreigner guest and all of them were polite .Friendly neighbourhood. Communal kitchen is a plus because can cook simple dishes for fussy children.Additional electric stove should be provided. I definitely will stay again

Shoestring budget? Holiday in Osaka? Possible! ”

Friendly staff - Nami, close to Osaka, Namba n the food;)

It fitted my budget perfectly so I could explore more places. It's good as the guesthouse is among local friendly & helpful residents. Some areas (staircase, laundry area, ground floor area outside rooms) needs minor renovation. Also the dining room needs to be aired to get rid of the dampness smell.

IM guesthouse isn't in a good location, it's far away from the metro station and Osaka's attractions but if you use the JR passes, it's ok. The apartment is cold, the showeroom is small and rundown. The positives Nami the owner is really lovely, she will make you feel very welcome plus the price is cheap so you can't expect the Ritz.

Standard guesthouse”

1. Near train station, 2. A number of restaurants nearby

We arrived before 11pm and we have informed the guesthouse beforehand on this. We have expected that s staff would be there to assist us upon our arrival but it seems that you still have to contact the staff from where she is to inform her that you have arrived. The worst part was, she can only be contacted through Kakaotalk and we didn't have Kakaotalk installed in our phones. We've been at the reception area for almost an hour waiting. We are just very grateful to the other guests, they are Koreans actually, who helped us contact . I suggest that a staff should wait for the guests to arrive especially if they have informed the guesthouse of their time of arrival. Other than this incident during our check in, staying at the guesthouse had been ok. Room: it was a little cramped. Two people cannot walk around simultaneously. The floor outside the room is of wood so it creaks when you walk, You'll just have to walk lightly to not disturb the other guests. Toilet and bathroom (shared): Clean. There's also a shared living room and kitchen. The living room was well kept. The kitchen has what you need to prepare your food.

Great affordable option for visiting Osaka!”

Location is maybe just a 5-8 minute walk from the nearest subway line, and it's only a few stops away from Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi, and Nipponbashi. All very good districts to check out when in town. The host, Nami, was super sweet and the facilities included shower with hot water, bathroom sink and toilet (with heated seat), and the room also has air conditioning/heating. I would stay there again.

The aircon, The toilet and the quietness

It was good except for trying to find it at night the first time. It can be near on impossible cause everything is so dark and the guesthouse is on a small alley. Very quiet area though so you will sleep peacefully. Korean guests can be noisy though. The aircon was a treat during the hot days we spend there. The room is simple but comfy. Wifi was good too. Overall a good stay.

unclean rooms”

full of international people, very cheap, not too far from the underground station once you know the way.

the most unclean place I have ever been to in Japan, there is no hot water from the sink and the bathroom is honestly quite dirty. The room is not well maintained and the whole block (including reception) emits a bad smell that was very similar to the one in a high school changing room. There are plenty of choices out there in Osaka but likely to double the price. So unless you are really short of cash, and cannot afford 2000+ yen for a night, you really should not stay here. There is simply no reason to. The place was hard to find, but just grab any international-looking people on your way there, more likely than not, they would be staying there too. So the perhaps plus side for this hostel is that you get to meet plenty of international people and can relive high school days as much as you wish (provided that you went to a sweat/alcohol-filled international boarding school.)

Value for money. Near Momodani station where inexpensive stores, dining choices are strategically located. We stayed in a room with shared bathroom at the 2nd floor. In case you have big and heavy luggage, request for a room at the 1st floor as the stairs are steep. If there will be an option to be in a room with private bathroom, that will be great. The owner is very nice and cheerful.
