Unfortunately this hostel has closed down due the Coronavirus Pandemic!
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!
