Excellent hostel in great location. Close to public transport and lovely area for sight-seeing and shopping. Near the best cherry-blossom river walk in Tokyo. The staff were superb and we loved the bar/common area, where you could just chill, or eat/drink. The bathing facilities are excellent. More hooks in the bathrooms and the dorms would have been welcome, but that is a very minor quibble. Thanks!

A lot of reviewers say that this is the best hostel they ever stayed in, and I have to agree with them. Stayed for six nights and the service was both excellent and consistent. Bar on the first floor and guest lounge on the sixth floor are great places to meet people.

had horrendous, smelly, inconsiderate dorm mates but this didn't detract from the fact that it's a super cool hostel. great showers, good solid curtains around the bunks, 1m walk from kuramae metro station, cute friendly staff and like 30 secs away from two 7-elevens to negate the fact that there's no breakfast included. great value

Very stylish hostel with motivated, very friendly staff. The croissants in the morning were wonderful. Everything is very clean, despite the very cool shabby chic indoor design. ;) Our room was maybe a little too small, because we could hardly open our suitcase and were happy to have left the other one in Kyôto, but comfy nonetheless. Nui Hostel is located 15 min. by walk from Sensôji in Asakusa and about 20 mins. from Akihabara. Very convenient. The metro stations are also close by.

The staff was great and the hostel was clean and nice. It's close to serveral tourist attractions. It's not very close to any places to go out at night but it's still a great place to stay. I would recommend staying here to others!

the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Nui has everything - cheap but delicious food (beautiful fresh bread/pastries and muesli, and the pizzas for dinner are amazing!), staff are so friendly and helpful, and the bar downstairs is the perfect way to end the day. would definitely stay here again, not one thing to complain about

Nice hostel! Really clean, and the staff were super helpful when it came to booking activities. The breakfast was a little on the pricey side I felt, but that's really the only negative comment I can make. I can really recommend this area for staying in; Kuramae station is just a stone's throw away, and there are lots of convenience stores around.

Awesome hostel with a vintage atmosphere. Only problems are that it's not in the most convenient location to reach Shinjuku / Harajuku / Shibuya / Roppongi and they didn't have large lockers available. Bar down the bottom is very nice. Good beds, clean bathrooms / showers & access to laptops in the lounge / kitchen area up top. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I'd stay here again!

I really enjoyed my stay there. Even though the location is not in the hot spots of Tokyo, I think the quiet neighbourhood of Kuramae has its own charm. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable. I would definitely come back to this hostel.

Nui Hostel was a great stayin Japan. It had a very 'hipster' feel which was unlike any other place I have stayed. The rooms themselves were a little small, but the cleanliness and facilities (downstairs bar and upstairs common room) made up for it.

Hostel atmosphere was mixed. The downstairs bar was excellent and trendy. However, many of the people staying at the hostel were Japanese and not as willing to socialize. The hostel was clean but the concrete floor and the fact that shoes were allowed anywhere was quite different to all the other hostels I have visited in Japan. The location was good as far as being close to transport. However, if you are planning on going out it is quite a ways from Shinjuku and the going out areas

Love the Nui Hostel Bar and Lounge. Although it is easy to find after you exit the subway station, it takes long way to go to the exit from the platform. The staff was really nice and helpful. They have bar also so you can chill out when you too tired to go around

Amazing hostel in an amazing city! Super clean, super convenient to the metro lines, and super friendly staff who were all very helpful. The hostel itself had an amazing vibe - the bar was stocked, the food was good, and the interior was beautiful - like being in a tree house oasis. Beds were big and private with curtains which is useful for the larger dormitories. Free internet, heated toilets, hot showers - what more could you ask for? My only suggestion is a bigger sign to find it easier
