New and Cheap Hostel to Open up in Shinsaibashi Osaka Worth Staying at| IMANO OSAKA SHINSAIBASHI HOSTEL
Combining the "Harajuku" and "Vogue" of Osaka
Inbetween these two fashion areas is a hostel, IMANO OSAKA SHINBASHI HOSTEL, which was newly built this year. It's already becoming a popular place to stay among travelers primarily due to its great price and wonderful location.
Hostel and Lounge Bar: Accommodation within a Coffee Shop
- IMANO has a great reputation with its hotels in Tokyo Shinjuku and Ginza, along with their hotel located near Kyoto's Kiyomizudera, so it only makes sense that they would open a hostel in Osaka. Their international staff helps make the mood less serious and more friendly, and the hotels are always so clean and well kept despite being so cheap. IMANO hostels are also always known for their cafe and bars which are right next to the front desk. It's of course always open to the guests, but it isn't uncommon for people passing by to stop in for a quick drink or bite. Which is also a great way to get to know and talk to some locals (especially at night once it becomes a bar).
◆ Choose a Bed Type That Fits Your Travel Style ◆
There are different types of bed types that you can choose from; the typical capsule style beds, bunk beds, or regular single beds. You also have a selection between staying in a private or shared room. As you may have imagined, making a reservation in a private room is like reserving a hotel room (but much cheaper!). Whereas if you were to reserve a shared room, you are only reserving a bed, and will be sharing a room with other guests (typical hostel style). In that case, the bathrooms and showers are separate and shared, compared to being in the room like in the private rooms.
They have up to 6 beds available in their private rooms.
As mentioned above, since it is a hostel the shared rooms are a basic bunk bed style, including 4, 6, and 12-person rooms.
If you need toiletries, such as toothbrush or toothpaste, you can go to the front desk buy what you need. There are also items such as chargers (with a deposit), hair dryers, shampoo, conditioner, and shower gels available in public bathrooms. Which is great for those who made an effort in packing light.
◆ Women's Only Floor ◆
In Japan, it isn't uncommon seeing hotels and hostels with gender separated floors/areas. IMANO OSAKA SHINSAIBASHI HOSTEL is no exception. There is a special women's only floor that not only has rooms with women only but also provides a lot of supplies that girls tend to need, such as straighteners, irons, beauty mirrors, etc. You can even find an exclusive community space on the women's floor.
◆ 600 Yen Breakfast Buffet ◆
We have to say that every time we stay at a hotel, we're always looking forward to breakfast. Although most people wouldn't expect much, if anything, from a hostel. Fortunately, IMANO OSAKA, which is also a coffee shop, isn't like other hostels. They offer a full breakfast, and at a cheap price. Whether you want just a homemade cup of coffee or something to make you full, they have you taken care of.
