Guest House Gloire




The Review

Guest House Gloire has the basic for a nice, quiet stay; if you want a kitchen and like bigger common areas for socializing with more seats available, maybe it isn’t very convenient. However, it still has the basics -- good location, lockers, umbrellas and slippers, fridge, free luggage storage, microwave, laundry, hair dryers, kettle, and water dispenser. Plus it's nearby a supermarket, convenience stores, restaurants, and shopping areas.

The Location

It's easy to find, as it is on a corner and there's a clear sign outside the building. It is well located near Dotombori, America Mura, and Shinsaibashi, so there are supermarkets, convenience stores, and restaurants right there. There are three nearby stations, which are around a ten-minute walk -- Nippombashi, Nagahoribashi, and Matsuyamachi (which is the nearest one).

Rooms and Bathrooms

The guest gets a card with the password for the main entrance door lock (since it closes at 11 p.m.) but the dorm doors are always open. Lockers are located on the first floor and are big enough for a medium-size laptop, camera, and wallets.

There are private and shared dorms. Mixed dorms are located on the second floor, female-only dorms are on the third floor, and private on the fourth floor. The three privates include Japanese-style twin and triple rooms, plus a family room. Shared dorms -- including four-, six-, and eight-bed mixed dorms with bunk beds, as well as four- and six-bed female-only dorms with bunk beds -- are very basic but have a curtain for privacy, and the mattresses are very thin so beds might not be that comfortable for some guests.

The shared showers and toilets are clean. There are amenities, including shampoo and body soap, but no conditioner. There are hair dryers and slippers for the guests’ convenience. The shower is a proper room with a dressing room area and the shower cabin, and there's a basket to place personal items. Hot shower is available.

Common Spaces

In the reception, there are general maps with information about Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara. There aren’t personalized maps showing what’s near the hostel. On this floor, there’s only a table with a few seats and a small, Japanese-style common area, so the seats are limited. Here there’s also a fridge and a hot-and-cold water dispenser; neither coffee nor tea is provided. On the fourth floor, there are two washing and two drying machines. There's no vending machine, but the hostel is literally a minute away from a convenience store and it's a three-minute walk to a supermarket.


This is a good option if you want a place to stay that is still walkable to the touristy areas and you're just looking for the basics and a chill stay. There's no kitchen available in case you like to cook your own meals, and there's few seats in the common area, so it's not the best place to socialize.
