Toy wholesale store “Mitsuwaya” founded in 1935 was reborn as a backpackers hostel in 2016. Even our hostel located in Kawarayamachi is heart of city in Osaka, though we can see temples and shrines, a traditional Japanese shopping arcade around our hostel. Enjoy such a special location and traditional warm atmosphere!

This hostel was really quiet (which I like). The staff were very helpful in providing instruction and directions even when I arrived late! I would recommend staying here whether it is just for one night or for a whole week!

Mitsuwaya was easily the best hostel I stayed at during my trip to Japan. This included hostels in Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima. Mitsuwaya had by far the friendliest staff (special mention goes to Yuka and Shuhei!), the biggest capsules and the cleanest, and was in an overall great location. About a 15 minute walk from the main Dotonbori area! My only regret was that I did not stay longer!

This hostel was a very nice place to stay! The staff was very welcoming and freindly, and went out of their way to help even with simple things like sushi recommendations. As well, they went the further step and called locations to ensure they were open that day. I also really enjoyed the 2 story layout because everything was closer together and felt more cozy. I believe that having things close together made it easier to chat and meet new people. As well, the wooden architecture gave a nice, relaxing feel in addition to the quiet neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again!

Staff were welcoming. They made takoyaki and okonomiyaki for everyone on new year's eve. Slight inconvenience that the dorm doors requires a number pin to enter. I'd rather have a card to tap and enter the dorms.
