Second time here, because my first time was great. This time it wasn't quite as sociable, but I still met some great people in the common room who gave great travel advice. Nice to have a beer vending machine inside. Staff spoke great English and were very helpful. Capsule-style beds are great and mattresses were pretty good for a Japanese hostel. Bathrooms were extremely clean. Location is walking distance from Akihabara and 2 other stations. 3 convenience stores are within about 3 blocks.

I stayed this hostel a few years ago, and came back again. Staffs and Facilities are very changed, but still awesome. ร้ก Ninja มาก มาก

Great place to stay while in Tokyo. Facilities are all there as would be expected. Everything is clean and runs well. Plenty of toilets and showers. The beds are comfortable and you have everything in them that you need, light, plugs , and you can shut a sliding door to box yourself in. Only downside is there's no nightlife nearby and since trains close early (12) it's either early night or take first train the next day. There are a lot of older guests too, common room is usually dead.

I stayed here for 3 nights and i pretty enjoy about my stay. I stayed in mix dorm and i can say that the cleanliness for this dorm and the bathroom area are awesome. Also adore the living room, feel cozy and warm. About the location, this khaosan is great remembering it located very near 2 JR Station and 1 Metro Station. One regret in this hostel is don't have any elevator, so guest have to bring their own luggage throught stairs.

This hostel is intelligently and generously designed with cozy beds, adequate privacy, electric room deodorizers (they work, no smelly dorms!) and a spacious kitchen + lounge. Wish all Japanese hostels were this good. The neighbourhood is a bit blah with limited food options compared to other areas.

Veeeeery creaky beds.. felt bad for moving in bed. No elevator sucked. Quite social, met a few other travelers which was a better point. Near JR station and subway too! Lots of food close by!

Had a nightmare journey (flight delayed, landed later than expected, almost missed last train from Narita)...ended up running from Bakuro-cho to hostel, n crashing through the doors as the night staff were leaving. Guy at reception was so helpful and kind. After checking in, headed to my capsule...unfortunately someone had gone to sleep in the wrong capsule so I ran back to reception. Again, brilliantly helpful staff, came upstairs and woke the person to get their key so i had somewhere to sleep

Stayed there for pretty long this time after two shorter stints last year - this is probably one of the greatest locations and hostels for this price range that you can find anywhere in Tokyo. Staff English is very good, but they still encourage you to learn a little Japanese (why come to Japan if you're not even willing to put in a little effort). Always helpful, clean facilities. I've seen a LOT worse, this is soooo worth it.

Had a lovely 4 night stay here with my friend. Clean and comfy beds. It was quiet most nights, although that simply depends on who else is staying in the room that night. Thank you to the friendly staff that went out of their way to help me with my bus ticket!

Staff is excellent! Very helpful and the facilities were always very clean. Location is far from the fun places to go out in so that can be limiting. People hang out in the common room and it's easy to meet and chat with each other but it's not a party hostel vibe.

Ninja was the best stay I experienced for the 3wks I was travelling Japan. Staff are amazing, location is okay. Will definately stay at ninja again!

The staff there are all really nice and helpful :) I enjoy chatting with them. And also the shampoo is really good ;) But the room is older than I thought.. I think if facilities can be renewed, this hostel will be perfect!

Much bigger hostel than the other one in the same chain. Loved that they offered free coffee and tea for the guest. The basement/social area is also very big and spacious. A bit too strict on the noise policy after 10PM but glad they are respectful of other guests.
