Budget stay at Hostel Base Point @ Osaka, Japan

I booked and stay here for 4 nights in 10 bed dorm. Initially, the location is very hard to find. Its located in a very small alley in the shopping street opposite Takashimaya department store. The good stuff of this hostel is the location and fast wifi connection. Located in the shopping area of Namba its a central location in Osaka. Its convenient as just a few steps away from Osaka metro exit, have direct access to Kansai International Airport via Nankai line and 10 minutes walk to Dontobori. Toilet is clean and bathroom is rather small. However, the downside is the hostel have 10 beds in a room. The room is a bit too small for 10 beds. Fortunately during my stay, the room is not full and one of the night, I am alone in the room. I stay here during December 2013 and the weather is rather cold. However, heater is not included in the price of this hostel. You will need to pay 100 Yen for 1 hour of heater. The locker is small and you can't put your luggage in there. Do take note that this hostel without elevator and not so convenient for those who have heavy luggage.

Rating:7/10(Recommended for solo traveller or budget traveller. The location is great as its at the centre of Namba. Once you walk out from your hostel, food & shopping is not an issue).
Price: I paid 2800 Yen or MYR90.00 per night for a bed in 10-bed mixed dorm. Good for sleep, shower, food & shopping.
