I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Qoo, the hostel is situated right above an exit of the train station making it extremely convenient. The hostel is located in a central area, less than 10 minutes away from Dotombori and many malls. The hostel is clean and the bathrooms on each floor are in great condition. Stayed in a twin semi private room and it was clean and there was enough space to put our luggage. There is a hook with coat hangers which is good. The hostel provides hairdryers and straighteners which are really useful!

Love the fact that the hotel was right at the train station. Super convenient to move around. Also kirinji ramen was right across the road. Super easy to find good food. Would’ve liked it if the water pressure in the shower was stronger though. Overall, amazing place to stay at. Friendly and helpful staff!

It was your standard hostel. Somewhat loud, small and a bit inconvenient. I stayed in a all women’s dorm. The lights are all connected therefore you cannot shut the lights off in your space until lights out. Which meant that when women would come in after lights out, they would turn them on to see. Therefore the lights went on in our personal space.
