You really need to enforce quiet time. If guests arrive past 23:00 you to tell them to quiet.
THERE IS AN ELEVATOR!!!!! THERE IS BATHTUB!!!!!
The free toast and boiled eggs for breakfast is a huge plus but they only put out one 2 slice toaster so there's usually a bit of a wait. Check in is at 4pm so getting there at noon kinda sucked. Mixed dorm was pretty small, only a small walkway between the beds. Showers are real small too. Staff is great, pretty much the same people as the other Anne hostel in Ryogoku. Anne hostel is pretty consistent between both properties.
Very clean, comfy beds with curtains for privacy, never ran out of hot water or had to wait for a shower. Staff was fine, but not super accommodating; they seemed about as flexible as the automated phone recievers you get when you call most companies now. Free breakfast was amazing; simple, but I never needed anything more than the hard boiled eggs, bread, and spreads. They lock up the common/dining room at midnight, which isn't great. Close to the subway and JR lines, easy to get anywhere.
I loved my stay in the hostel. I met a lot of people and had a great time there. The rooms are good and the hostel is less than 5 minutes from metro station, JR station and 7/11 shop.
The hostel has free breakfast, it' s close to a JR Station, and the rooms are not as cramped as in other japanese hostels. But the atmosphere was less than cero, and the staff did nothing to improve it. they charged for everything (even for the laundry detergent)...30 yen! And the drier didn`'t work properly, so you had to used it twice and pay 600 yen.
The dryer doesn't work, it just makes your wet clothes hot. They make you pay 300 yens for the washing machine, 300 yens for the dryer and 30 yens for the powder. No security, you leave your luggage in the stairway before check-in & after check-out, and the reception is on the 4th floor so anybody can go in and take your stuff. They have cameras but that would only allow you to see who stole it. Good location, but no atmosphere. Choose K's House instead! It's much better even if a bit further.
Good hostel, polite staff, very flexible what with the luggage accomodation and facilities in general.
For the price, this is great. If you are okay with a smaller space, this hostel will work for you. Perfect for light-backpackers and NOT for suitcases as lockers are very small. The beds are a bit close together. Hallways are tight when busy and lounge area is small. Nonetheless, very clean facilities and staff is accommodating. Location is a bit tricky to find in the alleys, however pathways are well-lit and safe. Make sure you arrive with cash upfront, as they do not accept credit cards.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. Decent location, maybe 5 mins walk from metro stop though not much to do in the neighborhood where the hostel is. Free toast & hard boiled eggs for brekkie was a good bonus and tea was available all day. Beds were a bit thin but curtains were nice and wifi was good. Would definitely stay again.
Its a very dusty place (i had to wipe my bedroom wit wet tissue to remove the dust) poor lighting inside the room no detergent available for free (at other hostel they provide it free) entrance should be lock all the time because position of receptionist is in 4th floor not at first floor
It was a busy time in Tokyo, but I was lucky enough to find this hostel. I emailed the hostel in advance to book an extra night, and they got back quickly to say that there was availability. I wasn't sure where was good to stay in Tokyo, but this location was perfect - it's close to the subway, and the Japan Rail JR station (another transport network). Free breakfast included which was a great bonus. There were some friendly people staying there. Didn't find the staff helpful.
Good location to subway and rooms were nice and had curtains for your bed. Has 4 floors but with working lift. Toliets were not high quailty on the 2nd floor I was on. Otherwise is a good place to stay.
Great hostel I would recommend and the free breakfast was an added bonus
Maybe it's because I literally just stayed at this hostel one night to get a night's sleep and move on but it was not the best hostel I've stayed in (and I've stayed in a few). I was maybe unlucky to have to shower quite late so everything was unclean when I arrived. The spaces are minimal in the dorms. The staff on the other hand is very accomodating with answering e-mails and giving you plenty of information on the facilities. Seemed in the end like a good backpacker hostel!

Great location, easy to find with the directions given, close to subway station and restaurants, 7/11. It was very clean and the breakfast every morning was an awesome bonus! Very helpful staff. Easy to meet people in the common room if you're travelling alone.
Awesome hostel. Great staff. Cool Japanese style.
All excelelnt, but coughing and snoring neighbor spoils...
Third time staying here and it's always awesome times!! Love new hostel too!
I've stayed at this hostel twice, in a private room with twin bunk beds and in the female dorm. It's very clean, beds are comfortable, staff is helpful and informative, and there's a nice common area and kitchen on the fourth floor. The atmosphere of this hostel is a little more quiet, not exactly a social or party hostel for whatever reason. Great value for money, average location next to Akihabara and Asakusa. About 20 minutes to Shinjuku/Shibuya area by the JR Yamanote line.
