Hostel was perfect. Really good atmosphere and the staff where great. Only thing to improve on was cleaning of the washrooms. This Hostel is in the best location and the common room is perfect for meeting other travelers.

Our room was very very small, and there was nowhere secure to store our suitcases. The beds and pillows were very worn out. The sheets were old and had stains on them. The showers were good, though the space in which to change was super cramped, and on our level there was only one male shower and one female shower. There wasn't much in the local area, and getting to other parts of tokyo usually involved changing from a Tokyo Metro line to a Toei subway line. The hostel wasn't very secure.
One of the worst hostel experience i have ever had. When you try to ask a question to the staff, they reply that they are not travelling agency, "use free internet" etc. And when you tell that all are in Japanese(!!) they say that they are busy!! bunks are not confortable and clean, i have stayed 3 nights, they changed my room 3 times! Much more.. would never ever stay nor recommend to anyone.
perfect for a hostel, probably the best in Tokyo
This was a really comfortable, nice, clean hostel with excellent staff. Loved the breakfast every morning and the lounge is a good place to meet people. The location was excellent for sight-seeing in the day, and the nearby subway station made it easy to explore places in the evening. However it is a little far out from the main touristy nightlife areas of Tokyo to get home from after the trains finish and the local area was also pretty quiet at night. Great for comfort and sightseeing!
Deserves 100%! Great value for money! Helpful and friendly staff! Very clean dorms. Comfortable bed. Good facilities. Each floor has a computer, lockers, toilets and showers. Wifi worked well. Small breakfast included in the price, nothing fancy but still good. Good location, subway station 2min away, JR station 5 min away. Lots of restaurants nearby. Can also easily walk to Akihabara (15-20 min). River only 100m away, nice place for walking. 100% recommended!
THE PLACE to stay in Tokyo!!!! Have stayed here on 2 separate occasions and will be staying again. The staff are great and I have met some amazing people staying here. Brilliant atmosphere and a great location!!! Get it booked!!!
Great hostel in Tokyo. Great staff - clean - good for meeting people Ticks all the boxes
Good hostel, great location next to subway. Perfect if you just want a bed and will be out dawn till dusk seeing tokyo. Only negative is if you want somewhere for space to relax as there is almost no common room space for the amount of people staying. When we stayed the one room was always packed for breakfast and in the evenings and no food, drink allowed in bedrooms. Free breakfast is a nice touch.
A great stay, although it is not overly popular to use credit cards in Japan, it was slightly inconvenient that they only accept cash.

I'd liked the free breakfast. the staff were lovely, and a good buzz. the bad was the hard beds, the close proximity of noise in the hallway and finding the hostel on first time was tricky. its in a convient location and decent value for money for Tokyo standards
A nice little hostel between Asakusa and Akihabara (20-30min walk to both). I stayed in both a private room and a dorm room. Both were clean and comfortable. Be aware that the walls are not very sound proofed. Breakfast was nice - toast and hard boiled eggs and a very detailed map of the local area made it easy to find our way around.
Really enjoyed both my stays at this hostel. Location is close to the subway and JR lines, the hostel is clean and has everything you need and the staff efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is awesome, there's always someone to talk to from different parts of the world. The free breakfast is a bonus too! Highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Tokyo :)
Good overall but a few points to note - you will have to store your big bags in the stair well and there is only one tiny locker that is room allocated but outside the room and you have to hire the lock if you don't have one. Facilities are OK but the water isn't very hot in showers or taps. Does have a good social room and drinks vending machine upstairs. Beds are not comfortable at all I slept on top of my doona and under the blanket provided to give an extra layer underneath. Handy location
Great vibe in the common room, very jovial and people were happy to share info or form a posse to visit bars or attractions. Otherwise basic and decent... a fine place to sleep, wash, eat, etc as you would expect. Couldn't go too wrong with this one.
Conveniently close to a train station (a JR line too, which is good for those with JR passes) and in a nice area. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, a decent kitchen was available and included breakfast was handy. The common area was nice and good for meeting people. The wall with information about other neighbourhoids to visit and how to get there was helpful. Our dorm room was a bit cramped (no space for luggage), but I'd definitely stay there again.
Very good atmosphere with very fun guests to be with. Room size was a bit small, and leaving luggage in staircase was not optimal but overall very happy with experience.

The dorms are nice. The beds each have their own curtain and plug. Makes for a nice sleep at night when the light is still on. There are lockers, but only big enough to lock up your personal stuff. The breakfast is nice to have, but it is just boiled eggs and toast. There are a lot of choices for your toast so that was nice. I found the location to be easy to get to from the JR lines. The only down side was there was a draft by the bed so I was very cold. The people staying there were nice too.
It was all around great!! Very clean and well laid out. The lounge could get a bit crowded but the close quarters made it easy to meet other people. Not too far from the JR and subway station which was a plus and only one station (or a 15+ min walk) from the Akihabara area. And the breakfast was definitely a plus! I would recommend it and even stay there again :)
