Namba : Convenient dormitory “Hostel Base Point Osaka” at the center of shopping street

I searched for accommodation that is closer to Namba station at inexpensive price. And I found this hostel Hostel Base Point Osaka that is located at the center of shopping street in Namba.
It’s very close to Namba Grand Kagetsu and I thought I can get to there with easily. Actually, it’s very easy to find ! (Though I mistook the exit at the station this time, too…) They have dormitory rooms and private rooms.

Because I always out for sightseeing and eating at whole day when I visit Osaka, so, I want to save money for my bed as much as possible. So, dormitory is good choice 🙂

Where?

After you get out of Namba station, go straight along Nankai street. And then you meet this sighboard, so turn left. “Ganko zushi (がんこ寿司)” is good sign, too.
* There’s not this signboard at night time.

As soon as you open the door, the front desk welcome you. This photo was taken in the morning, so no one was there.  Check-in time is 1 p.m. and Check-out time is 11 a.m. But front desk is open from 11 a.m.
Check-out is simple. You put your key at the box on the desk. That’s all. Hair dryer is only at the desk. If you need it, you can lend it (fee required :()
