1. Hotel Kinki

Hotel Info

Hotel Kinki is quite the famous hotel on the internet for several reasons. It’s very cheap, for one, and the name is somewhat suggestive, should we say. Something not helped by the fact that it’s in a district with a pretty high density of love hotels. Kinki itself is not a love hotel (the facilities would be quite lacking, as love hotels tend to offer hot tubs, enormous beds and other facilities), so don’t worry about having to walk into a seedy establishment or anything like that. The hotel might be a little hard to find, but locals will most likely be able to point you in the right direction if you mention the name. Rooms are small and basic, but if all you need is a place to sleep, this hotel is perfect. You can choose between Japanese-style tatami rooms with futon or Western-style rooms with beds.

Located close to Osaka Main Station, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to shopping centers, restaurants, bars and – naturally – train lines. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be in the midst of the action. Though the hotel may be in a rather active area of town, the rooms are nevertheless relatively quiet, so there shouldn’t be any obstacles to a good night’s rest.

2. Hotel Chuo Oasis

Hotel Info

Hotel Chuo Oasis is a great budget hotel that doesn’t compromise on cleanliness, the friendliness of the staff or the distance to the train station. Offering both Western-style and Japanese-style rooms as well as all the facilities you’re going to need for a good night’s rest and a comfortable stay for just 3,500 yen/night (roughly), this is a great deal. Rooms also come with a private bathroom and shower, so no need to share.

The area is considered fairly seedy by locals but don’t let that put you off, it has, let’s say, character. Moreover, you still have great train connections and lots of interesting places to visit close by, so don’t let it bother you.

3. Hotel Toyo

Hotel Info

In the same area as our last entry, Hotel Toyo is another budget backpacker hotel with great prices and clean, convenient facilities. With small rooms and basic amenities, there aren’t too many frills, but there isn’t much reason to complain given the price. For the ultimate bargain basement deal, opt for the rooms without air conditioning or a heater for around 1,600 yen/night. Maybe only a good idea in the milder months. Be aware that in this place you will have to share the bathroom facilities.

If you’re feeling adventurous and up for taking a literal deep-dive into Japanese culture you can visit the sento (Japanese public bath), Spa World, close by. It’s a fantastic place, with baths and spa treatments representing cultures from across the globe. At just 300 yen it’s perfect for those on a budget, but do be aware that you’re going to have to conquer any fears of being naked in front of strangers first.

4. Dotonbori Hotel

Hotel Info

This hotel has become quite famous for its four huge pillars at its entrance representing the Asian, African, Arab and Western ethnicities. The Dotonbori Hotel has a lot more to offer than the slightly creepy head-feet statues, however. It offers a jaw-dropping 22 free services including massage chairs, drinks, computer rental, face steaming devices, blood pressure measuring devices and – perhaps most helpfully – bike rental. Rooms at the hotel are all non-smoking, relatively small and equipped with a private bathroom.

Dotonbori is a famous tourist destination within Osaka and offers lots of entertainment. A stay at Dotonbori Hotel is a good way to situate yourself in the heart of this action.

5. Arietta Hotel

Hotel Info

Arietta Hotel is a quaint, Western-style hotel with a charming mock Italian vibe. The interior is designed quite beautifully and the rooms are relatively large. It’s not extremely cheap, but good value for what you get, so booking ahead of time would be a good idea. The facilities both in room and out are excellent and it is very comfortable indeed. 

The area it is located in will also not disappoint. Uptown, on the Midosuji Line, you can easily connect to Osaka Castle and Osaka Main Station.

6. Super Hotel Osaka & Natural Hot Spring

Provided by Foursquare

Hotel Info

This is one for onsen lovers. Be prepared to strip down to your birthday suit and to be separated by gender, but after a hard day of sightseeing, the refreshment is surely worth it. Rooms are tight but equipped with all you need, including a private bath (unit bath) should you choose not to use the onsen facilities.

With two parks, a river and a mid-city island within walking distance, this is a great place for travelers who also want to enjoy the outdoors and perhaps even do some sports while they are in Osaka. Train connections are good and you can get to Yodogawa Riverside Athletic Park without changing trains. If that doesn’t seal the deal, I don’t know what will.

7. Business Hotel Mikado

Hotel Info

A true business hotel, Hotel Mikado offers only basic facilities, but for a cheap price. You can choose between having a tatami room or a Western room, both of which are pretty tiny, and the bathrooms are communal. However, it is clean, offers public computers in the lobby, as well as coin laundry machines and parking spots on request (1,000 yen/night for a car). Again, you have Spa World, the super sento, really close by, so you might want to hop over and revitalize your body after a long day of sightseeing. This very cheap budget hotel is the perfect choice for backpackers and money-savers alike. For that reason it is quite popular, so make sure to check availability early if you’ve set your sights on this one.

8. Capsule Hotel Asahi Plaza Shinsaibashi

Provided by Foursquare

Hotel Info

The ultimate Japanese budget accommodation experience has to be the capsule hotel. A tiny cubicle that looks like it came straight out of The Fifth Element‘s futuristic world may seem like a rather uncomfortable place to sleep, but you’d be surprised. It’s actually quite comforting to be enclosed and the facilities are top-notch. Of course, you’ll have to share bathroom facilities, but you get a TV, vending machines, common room with mahjong tables, sauna and more. You’re sure to have a great time staying at this place and you may even make one or two new acquaintances as the cheap capsule hotel has 437 “rooms” and many local business people stay after doing overtime.

The Capsule Hotel Asahi Plaza is located very centrally in Namba district, allowing for effortless connections to all the big train stations in Osaka. Even if you decide to stay close by you’ll be spoiled for choice of things to do as the shopping streets connect to clusters of restaurants and bars.

9. Business Hotel Chuo

Hotel Info

Another great budget choice for backpackers is the Business Hotel Chuo with its cheap room rates, common room, kitchen, coin laundry, high-speed internet and free bike rentals. The rooms are small, as in many cases, but generally set up with everything you require. With this budget accommodation, again, you can choose between a tatami room and a futon or a Western room and a bed. Shower rooms and toilets are shared and there is a common sento-style bath for you to relax in. It’s a tad small, so if you want the real deal, swing over to Spa World and get relaxing.

The big plus with this cheap hotel is the location. It is so close to two train stations and there’s even a pretty park close by as well.

10. Raizan Kitakan

Hotel Info

Kitakan means “north building”, and there is, unsurprisingly, a south building, so be sure to head to the right one. The rooms are quite small, but clean and high up enough for some peace and quiet. Rooms come in Western and Japanese varieties and baths are shared. Coin laundry machines are available, as well as a sauna room and free coffee facilities. The helpful staff are furthermore sure to help you with any questions you may have.

The Hotel Raizan Kitakan (and probably the south building as well) comes with lots of free pamphlets and information for you to make use of. If you’re looking for something to do in Osaka that can be invaluable. Failing that, however, try our article Top 17 Things to Do in Osaka.

11. Hotel Oaks Shin-Osaka

Hotel Info

A rather high-class budget option, Hotel Oaks Shin-Osaka provides rather spacious rooms in a Western style with all facilities included (no separate bathrooms). The beds are large and bouncy and there’s even a restaurant and a coffee shop for your convenience. Be sure to venture out though as you are very close to a park and the train stations are on hand to whisk you further afield.
