Stayed 7 nights at Shin Osaka and Utano youth hostel. It's really good place to stay for any traveler or backpacker. The indoor and outdoor environment were pretty clean and beautiful. And the staffs can also serve well and be able to answer my questions. Hopefully, I wish hostel could organize some socializing and culture exchange event that all the guests can get to know each other and have fun together. If so, I think the hostel will be much lively.

One common shortcoming among many Hihostels/YHA in many places/countries are zero or hardly any simple wall hooks in the rooms and toilets.. Where can one hang damp towels, coats, etc.? These are cheap and easy to fix items yet hardly there.

Air conditioner was set to 28 degrees in bedrooms, and for most of the hostel. That in itself wouldn't be a problem, as I know air conditioners are bad for the environment. What wasn't so good was that they didn't have any electric or even hand-held fans to borrow. Staff were not very knowledgeable. They didn't know anything about Taishū engeki in Osaka, suggesting I try Kyoto instead. Restricting showers and entry to midnight was a little restrictive. Very convenient location, however.
