Airbnb in Osaka

From Namba Oriental Hotel, we moved to an Airbnb for our last lodging in Osaka.
This Airbnb is just a walking distance form Namba Oriental, and also our cheapest stay in Japan.

This is our 1st experience staying at any Airbnb.  It is cheap but the checkin process can be a bit tricky, make sure you have all the checkin details at hand, expecially if you didn't subscribe to data/mobile plan in Japan like us.

We have the printed instruction ready, plus hubby already communicated with the owner upon booking.  The security code was given, and we get the key from the mailbox, all these without face to face with the owner.

Lucky for us, our checkin was a smooth one.  Not so lucky for a group of Thai ladies, they arrived midnight, and they were having trouble finding the key, we met them at the apartment lobby, they asked for our help, there's nothing much we can do, different owner have different instructions.  Mind you, there's not even a security guard at the apartment, to get in to the lobby/mailbox area you need to have the access code too.

Enough about the checkin; so here's our room on the 11th floor, a studio apartment, very spacey, complete with kitchenette, washing machine, separate bathroom and toilet, 2 queen size bed.
Apartment entrance.

Everything so convenient at our fingertips. Airbnb is a great site, I also heard good review from friends who use it.

We were a bit sceptical in the beginning. Lucky for us, our 1st Airbnb experience turns out well 😊

I don't think I'll try Airbnb anytime soon simply because I am no savvy traveler ..hahaha!! This is a pretty cool place. I especially love the little balcony.
