Excellent hostel in a residencial neighborhood The staff was very kind and gave me tips for my trip 3 public bath around the hostel the room was clean with air conditioner/heater inside (had a private room)


Very noisy due to the rooms being situated close to some back alley with lots of people at night.


The only complaint I have is that the common room should be open more often or longer. The staff of this hostel is just great. It's the best i had till now in all of japan. The common room is good to meet other travellers. The hostel is just a 10min walk or a 2min train ride away from Shinagawa. So it's pretty easy to get around the city from there. I would come back anytime. Kind regards from germany to all staff members and a certain female neighbour that came by in the evenings to chat :-)


Staff was very kind and helpful, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, great place to rest up and spend your first night after a long flight!


While it is close to the train station, Shinagawa is kind of a quiet neighborhood. Shinjuku and Shinbuya are only a few metro stops away, but if you're spending a night on the town, that's a hefty taxi home (unless you stay out until the first metros). It is a great place to relax, though, and my single room provided a nice retreat. The cozy little lounge at the entrance is pleasant enough and good for meeting people, but I wish it was open later!


felt like staying with a big family. Really comfortable. Staff are all really friendly and they gave me a lot of nice information . People tend to be too formal in Japan but in this hostel, you will have "at home atmosphere."


A good hostel on a nice shopping street. We enjoyed staying in Kita-Shinagawa a lot. It has a smalltown feeling despite beeing in Tokyo. The Korean restaurant a little down the street was especially good.


The staff was very helpfull to me help me to get the train and book another ghesthouse in Kyoto i will like the reception would be open a little bit more , otherwise it was great to sleep there clean and good feeling with the staff :)


I had an awesome stay at Guest House Shinagawa-shuku. Location was great as it's near Shinagawa station, where several of the train lines stop, making getting to the rest of Tokyo a breeze. The facilities were all clean, and the neighborhood is nice and quiet at night. Spend some time in the common room, have some free tea and coffee, and get to know Taka san and the staff! They're really welcoming and really made the stay special.
