I've been here a few times. Chose to come back. Had loads of fun, but it always depends on who you meet. If you're not too fussed about having amazing facilities (and if you're staying at a cheap hostel you probably shouldn't) then this place is just fine. Close to Shinjuku and good access to everywhere else by metro. Also, some guy and I fixed the broken guitar string. You're welcome.
Ace Inn more like a hostel than a capsule hotel. Imagine bunk beds boxed in on 5 sides with the sixth side having a curtain and you will get the idea. Tall metal clothes lockers are provided for storing property but are located in the dorms which makes them difficult to access when the lights are off and noisy to use potentially disturbing other guests. WiFi was provided on each floor but power outlets were a long way from the beds.
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!
