A Wonderfully Friendly and Convenient Hostel!
First off, the location right in lively and beautiful Tennoji Park is unbeatable! Short walks to lots of attractions like Shinsekai, Nipponbashi/Denden Town, and Shittenoji Temple and easy access to everywhere else via major hub Tennoji Station just minutes away! I had no problems with city noise at night either which was extra nice. The staff are appropriately friendly, polite, and helpful. I especially appreciated the kind man who helped me find a clinic when I needed to see a doctor. Excellent service! The dorm rooms, toilets, showers, and lounge area on the ground floor are comfortably modern and kept very clean. The ground floor has a kitchen with appliances and plenty of seating along with some Japanese toys, a TV, and many tourist information books and pamphlets. I also appreciated the free ticket to the Abeno Harukas observatory which had amazing views of Osaka from Japan's tallest building! The free breakfast was also great to have, just simple bread and juice but tasty and very fresh (served from 7:00-9:00). My only small complaint was that while there was free Wi-Fi it was 'Osaka Free Wi-Fi' instead of a private hotel service which was slightly inconvenient and insecure. Overall, I had a great experience with this hostel! Thank you so much for providing the perfect base to enjoy my favorite city! Special thanks to the amazing staff!!
