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.

Nice,modern hostel, great dorm room and comfy beds with big locker. The communal bath was great. Sometimes noisy as furniture was being moved around above the dorm in the dinning room late at night. Also someone was playing the piano very loudly at 6am, perhaps staff could be more vigilant about noise in dinning room early in the morning or late at night. I would stay here again, very light and airy and great location and views
