Warm welcome, convenient location.

On arrival we received a very warm welcome. Our Japanese style room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious. We received recommendations for places to eat locally and sampled okonomiyaki, a delicious Osaka speciality. Very close to public transport many local sights including Dotomburi and Sumiyoshi Taisha shrine, it was easy to explore Osaka using the Banana Hammock as our base. Highly recommend this as a place to stay!

Pros: Warm welcome, good location, comfortable.

Comfy and nice staff !

We got a problem with our luggage at subway station and the owner wait for my friends until they arrived (at 2 am) and the next morning he called to the coin locker company for us and talked to them. Thank you so much for your kindness. Your place is not in the city center but we got more than a place to stay :) we will come back to your place again for sure !
