We all know Japan is one of the more expensive countries in Asia, but we all want our money to go far and be worth it! When I traveled to Japan and stayed at Guesthouse Sun, one of the best hostels in Osaka for four days. I just had to write a review on this hostel ! Travelling on a budget in convenience is possible!
Cleanliness and Convenience
This hostel was very clean. They cleaned the bathrooms and rooms everyday. It had a kitchen area with a fridge and hob where you can keep and make your own food. It is located within walking distance to Osaka city centre and it is also located close to a subway line and bus stop. There is a lounge area with a TV which is nice and you can meet other guests there and chill there too. There are convenience stores close by if you need a snack or a light meal or just walk to town for a proper meal. I also loved the bathroom it was so clean and had a nice space for you to hang up your clothes. The hot water also always worked!
I stayed in the all female room that had 12 beds. I know lool 12 BEDS!!!! The room had about 6 people when I stayed but everyone was respectful and out most of the time so it wasn’t bad. There were two showers for this room, two separate sinks and then a separate toilet so you don’t have to wait for people to use a sink or the toilet. There was a toilet on every floor that you can use. They also have mixed rooms and 4 bed rooms..
All the beds are handmade. Each bed had its own curtain which closes off the bed and gives you privacy. You have a mini table in there which is so useful and you can use it for whatever you want. By each bed there are also two plug sockets and a little light/lamp.
I paid 2,800 yen per night which is quite expensive for a hostel but Japan is generally expensive in comparison to other Asian countries.
The four bedroom was 12,800 yen for the entire room (per person 3200 yen)
I would recommend this hostel and give it a 8/10!
