Very clean and comfortable. Lovely place and we enjoyed our stay there! Need to walk a little to the main shibuya station area but it's an enjoyable walk since it's spring. Good for short stay. On the fourth day, the walk was starting to be a little troublesome.

Really lovely staff. Nice, clean place to stay. More hotel than hostel. NOTE: The directions to the hotel could be clarified. Use the WEST bus stop at Shibuya. When you get off the bus (second stop), walk up the hill maybe 20m and turn left at the car yard. Walk maybe 100m and the hotel is on the right hand side, on a narrow triangle shaped block.

Great location and nice place. Some staff were friendly others weren't at all making it uncomfortable when in the lobby. I also found it unusual that every time we came home after being out all day that they would ask for our room number. Almost as if they didn't trust that we were staying there.

Fantastic small hotel in perfect location to explore Shibuya. Staff were lovely and the room was quite spacious considering for Tokyo. Bathroom was spotless and wifi was stable and fast. Would recommend

I stayed at Fukudaya for 21 nights and highly recommend it to anyone going to Tokyo. The location was amazing, only 10-15 minutes walking to Shibuya and 30 minutes to Harajuku. Super friendly staff and VERY clean facilities. The only minus was no in-house laundry, but fortunately there was a coin-laundry 5 minutes from the hotel. I'm staying at Fukudaya the next time I visit Tokyo, that's a given.

The hostel was perfectly located for all that Shibuya had to offer - we actually really enjoyed the daily 15min walk to central Shibuya. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the facilities were kept extremely clean and the traditional bath was a bonus! For anyone looking for a Ryokan-style room in a great district, this is worth a look.

Shame I only stayed one night!

Nice staff. Found location difficult to find (even two taxi's had difficulty). Place is fairly stale, no elevator (guess it's not for tourists as much as locals). Curfew was way, way too early, although notifying staff allows you to extend it which is a nice gesture and helpful.

Requires a 15 minute walk from shibuya station. Some would prefer a taxi ride. That's the only drawback, and as someone who needs a good walk in his life, it was great for me. I booked a room for two of us. My friend couldn't meet me and I didn't find out until the day before, and the hotel management allowed me to stay for the price of a single room! Great flexibility. Room was spacious. Japanese style, tatami flooring. Toilet was private. Loved my stay!

First off the pros, Hotel Fukudaya is in a great location. The heater worked perfectly, the bathrooms were clean and the toilets were heated. Now the cons, checking in was challenging because we flew into Tokyo late and could not check in that same day. The staff was very friendly but also elderly, which kinda killed the energy. Second, it seems that on the second floor somebody was smoking cigarettes in the toilet stalls. Last, the pillows were somewhat uncomfortable to sleep on.

Thank you for staying at our hotel. The check-in time of our hotel is 13:00~23:00, and a registration desk and a hotel door are shut to 23:30. When surely required, please inform me in advance. The pillow that we provide for the guest usually is made by buckwheat chaff of traditional Japanese . If you say to a front desk, we will also prepare the pillow of the Western style.

We really enjoyed our stay. We loved the tea that waited for us whenever we got home. Especially loved the shower! So lovely. Also, loved the location really close to food, and also to the station (about a 10 minute walk).

Lovely quiet place to stay, very clean and the room we stayed in was spacious. Atmosphere is good if you're looking for a peaceful spot, but isn't a lively hostel if that's what you're looking for.

Close location, only two bus stops to Shibuya station right in the city.Plenty of good cafes, restaurants to choose from near the hotel. The hotel staff are very welcoming and kind , and it has a relaxed atmosphere. Good size room, very clean and pleasant,and a fair price. I would recommend Hotel Fukudaya. Jean Ferguson Australia

The location is great. We had read previous reviews that Fukudaya was quite some distance from restaurants etc but this is not the case at all! 10min walk to Shibuya Station will take you past hundreds of restaurants and shopping malls. Bus stop outside or taxi 710yen to station also. The traditional room we stayed in was great, comfortable and big enough for 2 people.
