I had a nice time staying at Four Letter Words. Chris is a great host and very accommodating. Location-wise, I liked the place. It also has this laid-back vibe given the location is in a quiet neighborhood. Not very far away from Namba / Dotonbori. I would say it's a great value for money. I would recommend this place for people who are not very fussy (like me) with their accommodation and doesn't mind staying in a hostel / dorm kind of set-up.

CJ was very nice and willing to help me whenever I asked for something. I enjoyed chatting with him and the other guests. The place was furnished with only bare minimum necessities, which is what I was expecting when I booked. The best thing about this place is the nice atmosphere but I really missed a couch to lounge on!

Going to be a great hostel once it's finished! Even now all the basics covered and pretty comfy. The owners are super friendly and vibe is great. Just some comfortable seating in the common area and more cooking facilities and this will be one of the best places to stay in Osaka.

Good place to stay in Osaka. It's close to the subway station, walking distance to train station, and some restaurants in walking distance. CJ even provide bikes for us to use and charge nothing. The bed is so big and comfortable too. CJ is such a good host to talk to. He will solve the issues or requests you ask for to make you feel more comfortable when staying there. Highly recommended, especially solo travellers!

This was the second time I've stayed here. I came back because the value is unbeatable if you just need a place to shower, sleep, and store your things safely. Check-in is easy. The location is close to the train and subway. It's always fun to chat with Chris, the owner. He's an all-around cool guy. I recommend Fourletterwords to any budget traveler visiting Osaka.
