2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Too far from Osaka
I telephoned the contact number the day before I arrived. I was given a padlock number. When I arrived at the guest house, I unlocked the padlock to discovered it was like a bedsit accommodation. It was not a guesthouse or even a hotel. There was nothing much to do in Kitanode and it took about 1.5 hours to get to Osaka. So all in all I wouldn't stay here again because it was too far out from Osaka and as I was on my own I felt isolated.

Good accommodations, meh neighborhood
The guy who runs the place speaks very little English and doesn't respond to emails, but it ends up working out if nothing goes wrong and there's no confusion. I had a bit of a runaround but that was my fault. The place is right next to the railroad tracks so there's a bit of sound at night, but it was spacious by japanese standards and well stocked. It had a full bath, which made me all kinds of happy. The heating wasn't really up to American standards, but a European who is used to wearing sweaters and whatnot indoors may not mind. Overall, I liked it and it was one of my favorite places to stay in Japan, but I could easily see it being a bad experience for someone who is more sensitive to neighborhood factors. It's a 480 yen ride each way from Namba station, which effectively means that for most people you're going to spend a few more bucks a night here than other places, and there aren't a lot of restaurant etc options nearby, either. That said, the place itself is pretty nice.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
前の道が舗装されておらず坂道だらけの立地。コインパーキングからも遠く部屋がエレベーター無しの三階だったので階段を荷物を持って上がるのが大変でした。 部屋も布団、床、浴室等に髪の毛ホコリ カーペットは染みが有りスゴく不快な気持ちで過ごし外出する際も 一々南京錠をかけて外出しなければならず不便でした。 まさしく民泊のワンルームです。
