    This was a great hostel to begin with in Tokyo. I became sick with the flu in the first few days and ended up having to stay in the hostel all day for 3 days. The woman who lives and works there is very friendly, speaks good English, and is super helpful. She knew that I was not feeling well and she brought me soup and fruits. I was stunned by this showing of generosity. I've stayed in many hostels in many countries and I've never had such a caring host.
