Location is good
I was very smelly in our dorm and it was not even fully booked. We wanted to stay another night in Osaka but we decided against it because we couldn't stand the smell anymore.
Great location! The common room has a ping pong table and billiards table so it was fun hanging out there.
We could sleep somewhere.
The whole hostel is located in 2nd/3rd/4th floor of a building. The room was really crowded and the air condition was set up for cold but the noise was even worse I could only sleep with earplugs. The 2 separate matresses in the room had 1 bedcover cuted in half. !!!! The ladies bathroom had no windows, it was basically located between an elevator and the ladies only room. It was claustrophobic and due to lack of fresh air you could not dry yourself completely. The baskets provided to your clothes in the bathroom were dirty. There were no stairs only 1 elevator, which was always busy. The common area is also a closed space with no window just air conditioning. The high rating can be because they give you gift (snoopy socks) if you rank them high. The only good thing was the late self check in, after 10 pm the leave you an envelope with all the useful information how to check in.
The hostel was located just outside of the bustling streets of shinsaibashi. 10min walk to shinasaibashi or a train ride away to namba station. The facilities was the norm. Staff was nice.
The rooms was very stuffy and hot. Had to put on the bed sheets ourselves which was a bit of a challenge especially on the second bunk.
My partner and I booked a double bedroom with shared bathroom for two nights. The bedroom was tiny and dark with a window looking straight onto a wall, and the bed itself was an odd set-up where it was nestled under part of the wall (I assume that the neighbour's bed was actually on top of ours - like a bunk bed but with a wall separating two rooms). Reception hours were limited and the welcome was unfriendly with heaps of rules and fines. The location is okay but a couple of train rides from anywhere central. They have a deal where they give you a free gift if you give them a positive review.
Located in Osaka (Namba), Senba Hostel is within a 15-minute walk of Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade and Orix Theater. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a safe deposit box at the front desk.
