Hostel Osaka is in a fantastic location, being only 5 minutes from Shin-Osaka Station which means sightseeing in cities further afield such as Kyoto, Kobe and Nara.

Our Shin-Osaka Youth-Hostel, located in the Koko Plaza Buildings 10th Floor, is one of the latest and most beautiful of its kind. We offer you free Wi-Fi, PCs, a huge TV and lounge area, where you can meet other guests and enjoy our large selection of popular Japanese Mangas, on-site laundry facility, a fully equipped self-service kitchen, a dining room with a splendid view on Osaka skyline, Nintendo Wii game nights every Monday, free coffee and tea service every evening.

From the train station you can travel to Osaka attractions such as: Namba in 15 minutes, Universial Studios Japan in 20 minutes, and Osaka Aquarium Kayukan in 35 minutes. A day trip to Hiroshima which takes 90 minutes by train is also recommended.

It is very close to JR Shin-Osaka Station. I stayed in a 6 bed double deck room, there are night light iluminating the floor that can be turn on/off to minimise the disturbing other mates when main room light is on. Room is very clean and there is 1 electric plug located next to the lamp in each bed. Beds & rooms are clean, comfortable to sleep in. free lockers located on the 10th floor that would refund your 100Y, large enough to store medium size luggage.
