Pleasant stay”

This was such a pleasant experience! It was much nicer than what I was expecting. The location is ideal. It’s close to the train and if you’re going to Universal Studios it’s very convenient without the throngs of people at the city walk. It’s not too far from convenience stores either. Don’t be deterred by shared facilities. They keep it really clean and there are so many showers, sinks, and toilets on each floor that you don’t have to worry about lines to use the bathroom or worry about the hot water running out. Also, I never had to awkwardly brush my teeth standing next to a stranger. The only time I ran across other guests was when I was coming and going. As an introvert, I really appreciate that. One of the great little details that I really appreciated was that they have a little sections of umbrellas available to borrow. So, if you don’t pack one it’s okay because you can borrow one of theirs. This came in handy because it rained one of the days we were there and we didn’t have umbrellas. We didn’t really hang out there during the day because we were out and about, but it was a very nice place to store my baggage, take a shower, and rest my weary head at night.

BEST VALUE FOR MONEY, SERIOUSLY”

If you're looking for the nearest place to stay for your Universal Studios Japan tour, this is definitely the place to be! Best value for money. I cannot capitalize that enough! It's just one station away from USJ. If you're gonna be coming from Kansai International Airport, there will be a lot of transfers from train to train so be ready for that. But there is a bus directly from the airport to USJ. So upon arriving at USJ (Sakurajima station), just take a train ride going to Ajikawaguchi station (J-Hoppers). :) I'd recommend this hostel to everyone! I will stay here again on my next visit to Osaka :)

Reviewed January 21, 2018

Than you very much for choosing our hostel in your precious time!! We really glad to hear that you enjoyed very much your stay here. Also your explanation how to get here from KIX (Kansai International Airport), it will be helpful for next guests!! We always welcome your another stay in our hostel!!
