This newly opened simple and small guesthouse is perfectly situated, only one stop away from Umeda station and within walking distance of many of the city's attractions.
We converted this 70's-style building to the guesthouse with help from local young artists.
If you want more than just a bed for the night, TEN Backpackers Osaka is for you!
