I stayed here the night before I had an extremely early flight out of Osaka Itami airport. The owner was very friendly and we chatted for a little while before I headed out for the night. The 10 minute walk from the nearest train station was a bit inconvenient with my luggage, but the walk was very quiet and (of course) safe, winding through dense 1 and 2-story properties. It had a nice atmosphere. The hostel itself was newly constructed. The design was interesting, however the beds were extremely thin. When I stay at a hostel, my three priorities are safety, location, and comfort. They should really double up on those mattresses or find something to replace them. Other than that, this place exceeded my expectations in the other various qualities. The common area was excellent. Their WIFI worked without any problems, and their kitchen was fully stocked with breakfast foods and tasty drinks. Had I used this as a base for a multi-night stay on the North side of Osaka I think I would have had a more enjoyable stay.
