Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Everything is awesome. They still take care for us even we get in early. They provided all we need. It is really worth to live once again.

    July 2014
  • I had a great time in Osaka! The share house is clean and comfortable. It is easy to find because it is near to the metro!

    July 2014
  • Noco and Gandhi were very hospitable and professional in welcoming their guests. Their place is very clean and convenient to the nearest JR line..

    July 2014
  • Very clean and convenient.Away from the subway station is very close, great help to us.Give us a very good experience.I hope in the near future will also meet!

    June 2014
  • We needed a last minute room in Osaka and Noco saved us! While we did not meet him in person, he provided us detailed directions and had a girl who lived there show us around. It's about 5 min walk from a local JR train, which was easy for us to get to. We also loved having our own kitchen and toilet, and the free breakfast was an added bonus! The place was very clean, spacious and secure (each room has own lock code). I also really liked the "free" box, where you can pick up and leave random items... A great idea for a place with a lot of backpackers!

    June 2014
  • Convenience location, traditional tatami room, everything is well prepared. Although we did not met Noco san but Sho was very helpful and very supportive as me and my wife were arrived really really late (our flight got delayed). You will have no problem of finding food, mini mart and laundry. Greatly recommended :)

    June 2014
  • I love this house !!!!

    June 2014

  • My experience was great! The room was very spacious and clean and it was comfortable staying in it. So 2 or 3 of you can actually stay in the same room at a lower rate since the room is big. There is a toilet each of the rooms, so it is not necessary for you travel downstairs to use the toilet like other hostels. The futon was also very comfortable to sleep on. The staff on that day, SHO, gave a good introduction of the place and Osaka. The place is also located not far away from Shin-imamiya station on the JR loop line and Dobutsuenmae Metro station, so you can travel anywhere. It takes some effort to find the place from Shin-imamiya station though. You can walk to Shinsekai and taste Kushikatsu easily too!
    The place is more like a hostel than an airbnb place. I think for those who booked this place through airbnb, you will expect yourself to interact with the hosts. Sad to say, the hosts have relocated to Kyoto, and SHO, is a part-time staff who is there in the afternoon to do cleaning and check-ins and is not around at night. In the end, it feels like a youth hostel. The neighborhood can be a little unsettling at night though with many homeless people and drunkards. A group of Taiwanese was a little scared and told me not to go out at night. The homeless people and drunkards won't bother you anyway.

  • The place was really comfortable and cosy with a lot of attitude! Great way to meet fellow travellers around the shared breakfast table. We also had a drink with Noco and (email hidden), and had a wonderful time hanging out with them and other travellers staying at the hostel. The bar has a great atmosphere, definitely worth one, or more, visits!

Hello!Thank you for having an interest in my house☆ Here is some news for you: ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ After 2014 April.... We(Noco&Gandhi)will leave Osaka and move in Another prefecture. However, please don’t worry about anything! My friend Japanese girl MIYUKI&Japanese boy SHO will continue with our house Yoccola Islands. MIYUKI lives in this house and takes care of you. But she goes for different work 5am to 11pm. SHO lives near this house and cleans this house day time. He works in an our Bar Nocosarejima at night. I (Noco)will take them place and become in charge of communication with you. I can come to this house in approximately two hours even if there was a big trouble. We promise you a relaxing experience in a real Japanese house! -------------------------------------- ABOUT US - *NOCO* I was born KOBE.I`ve lived in Osaka for 20 years. I have been working in bars for 15 years. I like to take trips, play music and go fishing! NO NUKES・NO WAR・NO DRUGS! We enjoy hanging out with people who enjoy a good drink・・・☆ I sometimes play the sansin (the traditional musical instrument of Okinawa). *GANDHI*(my partner) Gandhi was born in Osaka and has lived here for 50 years. We know everything about Osaka! He was an electrician before. He grieved in an accident of Fukushima and began a teacher of the self make photovoltaic power generation. It is to protest against to nuclear power generation! He love sea&surfing. *MIYUKI* Her work is a chocolate craftsman,works in a Japanese famous cake shop. She lived in Australia in old days. She lives in this house more than two years. *SHO* Our BAR NOCOSAREJIMA is conveniently located at the base of Tsutenkaku (the most famous tower in Osaka). My friends SHO&CHICA will continue with my BAR after last year. Both of them are good musicians! Please visit them! ------------------------------------------------------------------ Noco & Gandhi opened our shared house in the spring of 2012! The same year that Japan had a big earthquake and tsunami. We wanted to create a place where people could relax and spend time in Osaka. After the earthquake, foreign tourism had decreased. We want foreigners to visit Japan again and get to know Japan more. And we came across this splendid house! We have redecorated it all by ourselves. We are proud. The location of this house is in a splendid place in Osaka in fact! The neighborhood of my house is so-called downtown. If you like the `high-quality` housing area, you will think the neighborhood of my house is not to so good. I recommend that you reserve a high-quality hotel! Things have been said in a guidebook that make us sad. All the residents around my house are good, kind human beings. Even if they don`t have enough money. However, many former visitors have enjoyed my house&neighborhood! Here they get an insight into the true life of Japan. There is cheap, delicious food, a public bath, shopping of the curio・・・・! I have many reviews. Please refer to them! Please come and visit us! ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU!
