This was the first time that I paid this less but got tons of satisfaction out of the place I stay in Japan. The location was superb, just a couple steps from Dobusuen - mae subway station exit 1 and 3 and Shin Imamiya JR station. So close to my fav Spa world and Den Den town. Even though there's...

The staff is very nice. Room is clean but not large. in the room not soundproofing. Some bad is soft it make backache. คนไทยไปพักเยอะ แต่มีเสียงรถไฟรบกวน ในช่วงเวลา 6.00-23.30 น. ในย่านนี้ กลางคืน ไม่ควรเดินคนเดียว เพราะมี homeless และคนเมาเหล้าเยอะ มันจะมีตรอกแคบๆใกล้ๆสวนสัตว์ แถวนั้นอันตราย

The location is good, near JR Shim-Imaniya station about 5 minutes walk. This is easily excess to the northern part of Osaka connecting other JR lines if you hold a JR pass. Also 5 minutes to sub-way lines. The room is simple with japanese bed with private bathroom which I booked. It would be best if the hotel can provide...

Friendly staff. Room is the same as in the photos, clean, with clean shared bathroom on the first floor, and shared toilet on each floor. Location is accessible by train (Dōbutsuen-mae Station is in front of the hotel), and not too far away from the train line to the airport (Shin-imamiya station, by walk about 5-10 mins). Able to walk...

Guys if you spend 23 Euros a night you should expect certain standards and here they went above. Staff is super friendly and always with a smile. They gave you shampoo and conditioner for the shower.

The bathtub drain would flow onto the bathroom floor when draining the tub. The room we had smelled moldy and everything was worn out. Holes in flooring patched with duct tape. Horrible gas station type coffee in plastic cups and creamers. Not a nice place to stay at all.

This is a budget hotel, located very close to JR Shin-Imamiya Station (only 2 minutes walk). We found it to be safe, even though this area is known to be adjacent to Japan's biggest slum and homeless population. The hotel is 5 minutes via train to JR Namba Station, and then about a 10 minute walk to Dotonburi (for all...

The hotel's location is great! Behind it is Spa World and just a few meters away is the Osaka Tower and Tennoji Zoo! Plus, the subway and Jr stations are nearby. There is also a Don Quijote a few meters away. The rooms are fair in size. We got the rooms with own bathroom. Though there is no bidet. They...
