A good, basic backpacker hostel near fukushima station. The staffs are helpful, friendly and speak good English. The room are clean, however the mattresses are a biiiit on the thin side. This hostels don't have lift so if you have big luggage you're going to have a work out getting on your room. The bathroom is on the second and...

Considering its price, location and amenities it's a very good hostel, close to Osaka main station, 10-15 min walking, many new restaurants and bars around the area, a convinience store just 10 m from the hostel, the dorms all with curtains, lockers, so on. Just 5 min walking from a JR station so you can get to many parts of...

I had never stayed in a backpackers before. I am 40 years old and wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say, this was such a cool place to stay and I cannot wait to come back. Firstly, I was emailed instructions of what to do if I arrived there after reception closing time and also a map, and...

Good, basic, clean little backpackers very near the station and easy to find. The girls who work at here are fantastic, very helpful and speak good English which I really did appreciate as I only, shamefully, have about 10 words of Japanese. The only real criticism I have is that the beds are very hard and the doona I had...

The staff was sooo friendly! The rooms are really nice! What i loved the most about this hostel is that Japanese people could come in the evening to have a chat with the guests and it was a really nice culture exchange :) I even made a very dear friend there that I met again 2 years later! :)

It was a small hostel but clean and enough for a few days as a backpacker. It was in a good location, 3 mins walk from JR Fukushima station, which is a direct line from Kansei Airport, and 10-15 mins walk to Umeda. The staffs were nice and helpful. They sell stamps and postcards also. The walls between rooms seem...

I didn't stay here but I just wanted to share the positive experience I had with them. I booked a few nights at Jhoppers at the end of a very big trip. I arrived here at midnight (they said they would leave my room key out for me and I could sort out payment the following morning) not realizing I...

Stayed here last week, it was a great experience. The shower is so compact yet effective, one of the best shower I ever had. Staffs speak English clearly and there are a lot of Japan Travel booklet there.
