J-Hoppers Osaka provides travelers with much needed rest after a long day of exploring the attractions that the place has to offer. It is within walking distance from JR Fukushima station, and Osaka Central Station is just one stop away, making every place in the area within reach. Convenient stores (Lawson and 7-11) are just around the corner should you...

We stayed in a twin for 4 nights while exploring Osaka and Kyoto in April 2015. There really aren't any negatives to the hostel so her are some of the positive points: Train station within 5 minutes walk - on a JR line which is useful if you have a JR pass and only 1 stop from Osaka for transfers...

Hostel is near with convenient store or restaurant. But you have to walk 5 mins or more from nearest station. They don't have elevator. So if you stay at 4th or 5th floor, it's kinda difficult to bring big luggage. Shower rooms are only in 2nd and 3rd floor.

We were taken to a 300baht per item place, which was so good we decided to go back the following night. Despite Mr Yano's limited english that...

When I first arrived in Japan, I stayed here for a month whilst sorting out accommodation and a job. The staff were unbelievably helpful and I made a great long term friend. Such a clean place and perfect location. I smile ear to ear when I think about it.

I stayed there during my 1st trip to Japan (20th until 23rd of January 2015). went there with 3 other friends, altogether 4 of us. due to the availability of rooms running out, we had to stay in twin rooms (initially we wanted to stay in the dorm). but this was a blessing in disguise although we had to lug...

We had a fantastic stay at J-hoppers in Osaka! The staff are SO nice, they helped us book a ferry to South Korea and called the company for us a few times. Beds were comfortable and clean. Mr. Yano is the best! Thanks for an awesome stay!

I booked stays in J-Hoppers in Osaka and Kyoto mostly based on price and then location. I didn't expect a whole lot in terms of accommodations, but was very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was staying there. My wife and I stayed in a double room, so the experience was more more hotel-like than those staying in the shared...
