    Lovely friendly atmosphere throughout - the staff are accomodating, the open front room during the day is relaxing and inviting while the bunks in the rooms are comfortable and give you some privacy. Their handmade guidebook of local places to eat and drink is absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely stay again next I'm in Tokyo.
