    Great location! All the staffs were very friendly and accomodating! The rooms were clean and they have huge beds. The Wa Room was one of a kind experience and I love that there's a small garden inside.

    I just wished the breakfast was earlier

    Good breakfast, basic but all you needed really. The WA room was spacious, well air-conditioned and comfortable. Staff were friendly, even if English was a bit more basic for some communication was never an issue.

    No activities arranged unlike some other hostels so hard to meet other guests A little bit far from the centre of Osaka/nightlife, but still very nice location, easy transport options!

    My first time staying in a hostel. Ark Hostel was located close to higobashi Station (3 stop down from Namba Station.) It has large and sturdy bunk beds. Mattress a little thin but as I like a firm bed this was not a problem. The hostel provides clean sheets and asks visitors to make and strip their own beds. Bathroom, kitchen and communal room were very clean and equipped with almost everything anyone would need while staying. There were handy also English translations on all signs around the hostel. Overall the attention to detail and level of comfort provided exceeded my expectations. The staff were happy to store our luggage after we had checked out, untill later in the day.

    The space around some of the bunk beds was a little tight which made sorting through luggage difficult. The included breakfast consisted of 1 bowl of cereal, 2 peices of toast and 1 drink. Still feeling thirsty after breakfast on the first day, I politely asked if I could could purchase an additional drink but I was told "no". I'm not sure if something was lost in translation or if they did not want set a precedent with other guests, but I thought it was a bit mean considering I was offering to pay for it. Top tip - bring earplugs and an eye mask for a good night sleep.(People often snore!)
