curfew is 11pm, i was a an international soccer match and had to rush back as soon as the game was over so I wouldn't be locked out. I thought they could have made exceptions for big events..
I had a good time in Nagai YH where is on the left of Nagai subway station，on the right leads to botanical park where is full of beautiful surprises attacted lots of local civilians and tourists。Near YH ，there are two supermarkets ＂ Life SM & Kansai SM，could offer our daily food 。Only one thing did not meet my need is ＂ no free WiFi service ＂。Nowadays， almost everyone has iphone or ipad。Therefore，I strongly adviced them to establish ＂free WiFi facility ＂。
very special, because it is inside a stadium. the bathing facilities are excellent. Onsen is inside bathroom.
Hard to find when you arrive late in the evening, but a good place to stay.
We stayed Nagai YH of its location. It is part of the sports stadium built, I think, for the 1970 international Expo in Osaka. This is not the type of hostel I like to stay in, being sterile (lacking in character) but nice architecture , crowds of children & and people of all ages in the park made our stay one to remember. Not to forget the friends we made there
good hostel; a bit far away from everything, but still easy to reach.
