Poor 2.0
Claustrophobic and noisy
Terrible. It is indeed a hive; you'll be like a bee, in a tiny cell, unable to move or store your belongings. I could barely sleep as everyone is so close together, you can hear EVERY single noise. People were not quiet or considerate the night I was there. Also, there is only one shower area for the entire hostel. Lucky I was leaving at 6am so I showered before anyone else. I was so desperate that instead of getting up and leaving at 6, I ended up leaving 30 minutes earlier.

Efficient check in, only problem was the person above me thought it was an awesome idea to rustle every plastic bag in Japan at midnight. Otherwise epic stay.

Come as a guest, leave as a friend.
This place is awesome, located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Centrally located within a 12 minute walk to Fukushima station and Osaka station, this hostel is quite convenient. The price is right and I the staff here are very cool, I came here alone as a guest and left feeling like family. I left to go to another hostel, but that was a mistake. Guesthouse Hive is a special place, the people there are great!

Walking distance to all Umeda Osaka stations, the mega shopping and entertainment spots, Kita has to offers. Yet in quiet and safe area. It has good facilities, TV, anime, games, towels, ear plugs, slippers etc, the services free such as toast and a small valuables locker, or little fees to share in cheerful living room. Staff are welcoming and helpful if you need direction or buy extra amenity. Women only room no extra cost. For this price, location, staff and services in Umeda Osaka you won't regret it.

Nice people to stay with!
When looking for a clean, inexpensive, no-frills place to stay this is a good option. This would be my 5th hostel in Japan and it is one of the better dormitory style places. Other guest houses had the option to rent rooms with 2-4 bunks in them with a locking door. This is a place that is a true dorm style but you are given a locker to place your valuables in. This place has a communal kitchen with amenities available for you to cook and eat with. And they offer toast and tea in the morning as part of your stay. Other places have offered the same for a nominal fee or not at all. It was hard to find the place at first, we took a taxi from the airport and the driver couldn't find it at first. It's hidden down small, narrow streets which is why i gave a neutral to the location. WiFi is included and it worked! The staff are very polite and helped whenever they were able when it was a question. I would recommend this place to people if they were on a low budget yet wanted a comfortable and safe place to be.
