Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Come as a guest, leave as a friend.
This place is awesome, located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Centrally located within a 12 minute walk to Fukushima station and Osaka station, this hostel is quite convenient. The price is right and I the staff here are very cool, I came here alone as a guest and left feeling like family. I left to go to another hostel, but that was a mistake. Guesthouse Hive is a special place, the people there are great!

Liked: Staff & service
Walking distance to all Umeda Osaka stations, the mega shopping and entertainment spots, Kita has to offers. Yet in quiet and safe area. It has good facilities, TV, anime, games, towels, ear plugs, slippers etc, the services free such as toast and a small valuables locker, or little fees to share in cheerful living room. Staff are welcoming and helpful if you need direction or buy extra amenity. Women only room no extra cost. For this price, location, staff and services in Umeda Osaka you won't regret it.
