Stayed here for roughly three nights. The staff at the hostel are very helpful, considerate and friendly. Although the hostel is located in a quiet part of Osaka, it is quite close to the Shin-Osaka station, which meant that it was easy to travel to the more livelier part of town and other cities like Tottori. Overall, I will definitely stay at the Shin-Osaka Youth Hostel again for my next trip to Japan.

Hot baths were a plus. The hostel generally appeared clean, but I was allergic to something there during my stay and as a result had a poor night's sleep. The midnight curfew policy was rather irritating. You have to hand your key to the staff whenever you leave the hostel, and you'd be locked out if you miss curfew. I imagine it would be very unfortunate to have that happen to yourself, but on the other hand being locked in all night also feels a bit like prison.

Thank you for your comment and sorry for your inconvenience during your stay. Why we set our curfew midnight is to keep a security in the deep of night. We will be happy that you understand that. Thank you.
