Great location, great price, great atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, offers a lot of services. Only inconveniences: the rooms are very small, wifi works only in the common room.
We enjoyed our stay at Aizuya Inn. It was conveniently located to the places we wanted to visit. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

the hostel is ok to crash for a few days. Although the rooms are a little small. I suggest you book one with tatami, so you can fold and keep aside the mattress while you are not sleeping. I do not think the price of the private room are cheap if you are staying by yourself. for a couple it is alright. Although it does not imply a lot of money (100 yenes per 5 minutes), I did not like the fact of paying for using the shower. The location is not bad, not far from Skytree and Asakusa
Big hole in bed sheet. Uncomfortable bunk beds. Very very small room for 5040 yen. Barely enough room to move. Pics on site are misleading. Bathroom mats absorb water so they are always too wet to stand on. One power outlet did not work in our room. Got charged twice for the room which is forgiveable as they corrected it but I had to explain twice before the man checked with another member of staff to get it sorted (please just consider my inquiry properly the first time!).
The hostel is clean and neat. The staff are friendly
Not bad for just one night, but the downside is the coin showers and a little far away... The walls are thin so you will hear about everything and the japanese style bed was not put together yet wich I had to do myself. Great place to meet other visitors though, if you're lucky. The tea was nice too and the place seemed quite clean.
EVERYONE GOT LOST- The map given at the desk is not useful for getting back to the hostel as half the streets are not included and really its in the midle of nowhere. French guy on the desk was pretty defensive when asked about this and also when first being surprised at a coin operated showers.
A friend and I arrived at Aizuya Inn extremely tired and jetlagged from the flight and taking 3 sepearate trains - but it was so easy, as the Inn gave such succinct instructions on how to reach them. The area it's in is a little sleepy, with nothing much going on except a 7/11 so you do have to rely on the Subway to visit places, but it's really nearby. Small bowls of cereal are available free at breakfast which is nice, and the staff really know their stuff. We had a lovely 4 nights!
It was a fine stay but there were some inconveniences. Wifi wasn't powerful enough on the top floor so it was difficult to charge your phone and connect simultaneously. Staff expressed surprise. The showers were cheap, but the charge bothered me on principle. I would consider being able to wash a minimum requirement for inclusion in the cost. A notice asking people not to exceed the 5 min session would work well to conserve water. The bars on the beds were an annoyance.
A nice hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The only bad side (but not a major issue) was having to pay 100 yen for the shower, but this is compensated for by the free towels and breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying there. The location is good, minutes away from the JR train or subway station.
We had the dormitory for 3 days. The room was very small and our baggage fills all the Space on the ground. The beds were wooden and really old. I had fear that they will Crash with is on the ground. It was difficult to sleep because everytime you move for one centimeter the beds are very noisy. It was Not very clean in the room. Very much dust on the Wood of the beds and everything else. Because the dormitory was in the 4th floor we had nö wifi in our room and Gas to go downstairs.

The price is probably the best you can find in Tokyo. Room was the smallest room I've ever seen (semi double room seems like a 1 person room, be prepared, we had nog space left for our bags). Not really clean, lot's of dust. Staff was nice. Free breakfast is plus. Location not great, pretty long walk from station in a dodgy area. Hostel is run by French people and attracts a LOT of French tourist. Staff and tourist hang out in evening in common room and are loud, you can hear them in your room
Very friendly and helpful staff - especially the French guy (I forget him name)! Comfortable sized rooms and futons added to the traditional Japanese experience. The location wasn't bad at all, and close to the station. This hostel has a really welcoming and friendly atmosphere to it, and I LOVED the different themed decorations inside all of the bathrooms. I would stay here again.
We really loved the place. Great staff, facilities, and space. It's not super central, but it is close to a metro station.
The member of staff behind the desk was friendly and helped us plan our day in Harajuku. However we weren't impressed by the hotel - the beds were ridiculously squeaky, the rooms were tiny and it was frustrating to have to pay 1000 yen extra for checking in at five minutes past 12.
By services they mean that they charge you for every 5 minutes of showers, otherwise a very lovely quaint place in a traditional Japanese style.
