This is my second stay at ShinOsaka Youth Hostel and I am satisfied again with their service and cleaness. Everything was great except the pillow it was too high and hard for me. Except that part, location was not bad, it was clean.. Overall great

Travel tips...

Where next?

Kyoto and Lake Biwa. On the train to Lake Biwa, exit Omimaiko Station. Follow footpath along the lake northwards. Just past hotel, an old guy runs a little beer/snack stand on the water. So friendly - he'll talk you into a beer and a moment to relax.

Attraction tip

Osaka Castle - it's reminiscent of Medieval Japan, even though the inside of the castle itself is a modern museum. You go wanting to taste the days of Sekigahara...and this is pretty close. More so than Edo Castle for me.
