Small but very good service
Room is smaller than what we thought. However, their service is very good. Location is not bad as not far from train station and shopping/good area. We will comback again.

Poor 2.0
Traumatisingly horrible.
We didn't end up staying here at all. The place is run down and dirty. Service was non existent with no 24 concierge as advertised nor a card machine so you must pay in cash (no receipt was given upon payment either, only left at front desk on your last day apparently). The room was tiny, dirty and uncomfortable. Plus it wasn't the canal facing room we booked. Instead it was road side facing construction. We moved to the rook next door, there was hair on the floor and no aircon remote despite being on the 3rd floor and absolutely sweltering. Getting hold of the people to complain was near impossible. They said they will try get a refund but still haven't heard back. People are unresponsive. We barely stayed 20 mins before vacating and booking something else. Horrible property, there are similarly priced places with far greater quality nearby.

Good for a couple of nights in Osaka
Guest house la Kongo was well located - a minutes walk to Dotonbori food district, Shinsaibashi shopping mall and about 30 minute walk or 15 bike ride to Osaka Castle. Staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs and or questions. Also provided welcome soft drink/coffee/tea option upon arrival and miso soup and onigiri on check out. Clean bedroom and bathroom. Good for a couple nights stay.
