Stayed at Drop Inn Osaka for two nights in mid October, 2014. The inside of the hostel was still under the construction and could smell new paint (they opened one month ago). All the facilities are new and some staff were attentive when I approached. However, they normally didn't greet or talk to us, just sat at the front of computer at the reception. Although the hostel was new, we found it very untidy and a touch dirty - especially in the shower rooms. I saw one of the staff cleaning the shower room and she spend less than a minute...
They supply very minimal - body sorp in shower, no shampoo or conditioner/ no hand wash in the toilets, and rental towels were 200 yen. Plus, you have to supply your own padlock or buy one from them if you want to lock your safe in mixed dormitory.
We stayed 3 hostels in Japan (similar pricing range) and thought the other places had so much better ambience and clean facilities, and staff are welcoming. We wouldn't stay at this hostel again.
I like the hotel.It is good located to business areas .the only problem that the t.v chanels only japanese there is no english channel .I like the staff of the hotel they are very helpfull when you need them .
Luxurious and excellent service by service staff. Connected to major train stations (JR, Hanyu line etc) via adjoining mega shopping malls within 5 mins walk. Excellent international buffet breakfast spread.

"Hotel conveniently located close to train station"
Had nice few days in Osaka, my first time to Japan. Airport bus conveniently stopped 2 min walk from Hotel. Trains to other parts of Osaka that I wanted to go to were very easily accessible from the main train station, which was a short walk from the hotel. I had no need to get a taxi the 5 days I was there.
Stayed here for 4 nights on the last leg of our Japan Trip. Had a great stay. The area immediately around the hotel was very nice. Upscale hotels and shops nearby that had very beautiful night ambiance too!
The room was a nice size and the tv and fridge worked great! We had the buffet breakfast one morning and liked the selection though it took a little bit of time for things to be replaced once emptied.
I really recommend this hotel. Though it is a five minute walk to the nearest train/subway station we really enjoyed staying here while sightseeing in and around Osaka!
Hotel staff were very friendly. During my stay most of the staff I spoke with knew enough English and made things much easier for me. Hotel offers free shuttle service to Umeda Station which is a central hub good for local transportation. Room was a little smaller than expected, but still comfy. Plenty of amenities and services to please just about any visitor.
