Location is great, 2 subway stops from central Shinjuku. Not really a great atmosphere, but maybe that was more the people staying there during my stay.
Ace Inn was a comfortable hostel, in a great location. Sam on reception is awesome and was always willing to help us! I would stay here again :)

Great place to stay if you're looking to meet up wih fellow travellers and explore Tokyo. Is a 2 minute walk from a subway station, and also has some pretty good facilities considering the price per night.
They closed the heater early in the morning so it got cold
Will stay again here! Very good location!
If I was to stay in Tokyo for 2-3 days, this place would be awesome! Friendly staff who can speak English well. No curfew. Nearby subway station. Facilities are a little average but you get what you pay for. This place can get a little rowdy sometimes (especially on rainy days when the teeny bop kids stay inside), but this can be the case with all hostels, luck of the draw. Met a great bunch of people here too, which was probably the best thing about this place. The people you meet!
Really enjoyed the stay! I have travel everywhere in the world, staying at luxury hotels where the people never spoke a single word to each other. With hostels, you can travel alone without being alone. The staff at this hostel were very kind and helpful. I would definately stay here again. Thank you Jason and Reina!
A great value place to stay and would defo stay again.
Second time staying here. Good stop over in Tokyo. Good access to subway and only 5mins train to Shinjuku. would recommend.
I found this a good place for its location but atmosphere was not the best and it stung like feet.
Comfy beds in a semi-pod set up which is good. Decent facilities. Common room is good with vending machines. Helpful staff Good location! Right by the metro. Would recommend.
Positive points : THE PRICE !! Location is perfect nice staff , quiet dorms , possibility to smoke on balcony before 11 P.M,lockers, Negative points : not clean enough (especially the toilets on 10th floor) and floor and walls are quite damaged,matress is quite hard (it doesn't disturb me tough) and pay 100 yen for shower. Altough there were some negative points , my stay was very cool , thanks to the location i could visit a lot in only two days and a half.I will definetly come back soon

If you are a group of young male Australians whose only desire is to get drunk then this is the place for you. The communal room on the 9th floor is the most depressing space I have experienced in Japan. The capsule beds are hard and have no power points in them.
Thank you to all the staffs of Ace Inn. Keep it going.
Good location however was unaware of the 2am curfew this hostel has. Not ideal if you're looking to enjoy the Shinjuku nightlife. Each shower will cost you an extra 100Yen.
We stayed at a very unfortunate time - it was snowing and the hostel had a power cut. They offered us a full refund or half price stay. Since it was already midnight and snowing we stayed. Considering the circumstances, the staff handled all of our problems/questions pretty well.
Things I loved: - staff (the little guy at the front desk was so sweet and helpful) - the capsule-type beds - the free internet and computers in the lobby - receiving a bath towel and hand towel upon entry cons: - I'm afraid of waiting for the elevator if there is an emergency and I need to exit the building quickly
A nice little capsule hostel. I only strayed one night, but it's walkable from Shinjuku (20 mins) has access to local restaurants and capsules are big enough.
The beds were a little hard, but that's to be expected in some places. I felt really safe here, and it was just a short stop away from Shinjuku. The rooms were clean and surprisingly spacious considering the number of beds in the room I was in. My only complaint was there were very few outlets in such a large room and you had to pay for a shower (100 yen for 5 minutes.) Other than that, I had no complaints! Great stay.
Beautiful hotel. Free Tea and Coffee! Amazing. Great view from the top floor. A bit quiet during January. A few things were out of order, but fast speed internet and enlish staff, cant complain.
