staff is friendly and helpful - 1min to the next subway station - rooms are clean - so all in all a good place to be. unfortunately my room smelled strange and not really good (although it was clean)

It was a great hostel for my first night in Japan! The staff was friendly and the rooms were accommodating. For the price, it was good.

Very very cramped little rooms and smelt like a geriatric home. Wifi did not work. En suite was smaller than an airplane. Otherwise staff were nice.

We had a double western room with ensuite which is small as expected in Japan but had good wifi and hot shower, kettle and TV with CNN News. Location is great as a few mins walk from Inaricho station and 15 mins from Senso-Ji temple. Ueno park is also about 15 mins walk. Supermarket around the corner, kitchen has a kettle, hob, microwave, toaster, washing machine and dryer. Staff are super helpful and friendly, would recommend as a good stay in Tokyo, McDonald close by for emergency food !!

My only wish was that I could have stayed there more. The staff were great and very helpful! If you need a place to stay this is a great one for the value! I plan on staying there again when I come back to Japan!

Great place to stay, not however that it is a hotel not a hostel. The atmosphere is not entirely of a hotel but it's not of a hostel either. Good place to stay if you want a private room and some quite.

I love this place. The staff were amazingly friendly, the location is perfect, the room is not much but it's seriously just what you need. Really, this place is perfect. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Tokyo.

Staff is very friendly, and overall stay is good. Room is well make up and clean. Staff able to communicate very well in English. 5 star hotel service at a budget hotel pricing ! A little hard to find though.. I got off at Ueno station, following the instruction after crossing the road and pass under the overhead bridge, i was lost at how to proceed. might be better to put the road name as mention 'walk along xxx road' The hotel was a little 'hidden' and i turned at the end of the road instead.

Everything is satisfactory. Maybe we weren't at the right time but nothing really happened, I usually make friends at hostels but no one was really socialising. They have everything you need though, and the neighbourhood is very quiet. The staff is amazing, and you feel very welcomed. Recommend this place if you just want a place to sleep quietly.
