    Small but convenient ”

    I stayed here for 3 nights. I chose this hostel partly because I'm a cat lover. Unfortunately the cat kept by the hostel likes to travel too. I didn't meet it during my stay. The backpacker room is pretty small but it's clean and people are friendly. The receptionists are helpful and welcoming. A good choice for budget travellers.

    Staff was very helpful with location to hostel and elsewhere. She waited patiently for my late check-in due to flight delay. At this price and this location, I would recommend it, but if you have suitcase, this might not be the best place as you need to take the very narrow stairs

    覚えていることを箇条書きにすれば… ・クリーニング(フリアコ?)の外国人スタッフ(黒人女性)の接客が最悪。日本語を話せというわけではない、英語でHow are you?と笑顔で言ってくれるだけで良かったのに。荷物を置きに行った時だったので、荷物を渡したら床に投げられた ・シャワールームが狭くて小さい ・トイレがウォシュレット対応してない ・なによりもお客さんより猫様優先。猫飼うなとは言わないが、自由奔放なイメージが強い猫。外に出すのが心配なら飼い方をしっかり考えるべき ・ベッドを下の段に指定した際はすぐに確認のメールをくれたのでよかった。

    일단 침대이고 직원분들이 모두 매우매우 친절해서 친구처럼 대화하고 했습니다. 단점은 정말 좁고 3층 도미토리의 경우 4층사람들이 오르내릴때 시끄러울수 있다는 것과 샤워실이 2개이고 잠그는것이 없다는것 정도? 저처럼 그다지 신경 안쓰면 상관없지만 예민하신분들은 생각하셔야됩니다. 이정도 빼고는 위치도 주변에 다니마치큐조메역 오사카우에혼마치역 니혼바시역 등이 모두 거러서 10분이내에 있어서 센니치마에 킨테츠(난바,오사카), 다니마치큐조메, 사카이스지 라인등 오사카내의 주요 전철을 모두 가깝게 이용할수있고 주변에 식당도 많아서 아침 저녁을 해결하기 편했습니다.
