Closed – Hostel Base Point Osaka in Namba


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 🙂


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.

Because it’s located close to Namba station, we don’t need to worry about shopping and meals. Ah, it’s sad thing that we have only stomach each. Nevertheless there are so many delicious foods in Namba !

Nevertheless such a location, the price is so inexpensive. Dormitory is 2800 yen. And they accept tourists from various countries. Of course, English is OK. There were some foreign tourists without booking. They could stay at there because there were some vacant beds.

We can reserve at agoda.com, Expedia, Hotels.com and so on.
Prices are mostly same. They don’t serve breakfast at all.


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 :()
