The hostel was really lively and full of energy. Hotel staff was really nice and helpful, and all of them spoke English. The hostel is close to a nice area and to 2 metro stations, not far from the city center, but on the other hand not close to any JR line station (so not good for JR pass holders). It was overall clean, maybe sometimes the showers were not in perfect conditions (still nothing to be worried about). Overall, I would recommend this hostel.
I found the dormitory to be a little pricy (roughly 27 US dollars) for the value. They provide a Japanese dancing show for free on Saturdays which is nice and the common room invites to meeting new people. They even have a TV and comfy sofas. I expected a little more of the cleanliness, though, and the kitchen is very small, as are the showers. But by all means: comfy bed and helpful staff!
Decent hostel, maybe it was just the weather but the place seemed a bit cold & grey. Walkway to dorms felt a bit like a prison & the common room was a bit bland. The cleaner kept knocking on the shower door while I was showering. Found out about a great music gig in their foyer so that was a plus, also met some friendly people.
Really satisfied with my stay here. Helpful staff, lots of computers to use and especially loved the "free box" system where you could take unwanted items from previous guests (e.g. shampoo) and add your own if you had leftovers you didn't need to take home at the end of your stay. Luggage storage is very convenient, however it's an open room within the building so not 100% secure. As with all hostels, you have 5 roommates so you can't make noise nearing midnight as they'll be asleep.
Solo traveler Stayed for 3 nights great atmosphere meet plenty of new people Not the closest to the train station but still very walkable. Right near the best temple in Tokyo temple and sketchiest looking theme park
Excellent hostel. The staff where amazing! Roommand bed was good :) About a 15/20 minute walk to asakusa station, but it's a lovely view, so doesn't matter! Big common room and has a great vibe at night time. 100 percent would stay again :)
10 minutes walk to next subwaystation. Very good wifi connection. Friendly staff. Lockers at the room. I was satisfied and would recommand it!
The staff give an amazing service and help!!!!!
I liked this hostel, the staff we're friendly, the place was clean and in a good location for site seeing traditional temples and markets. It was a little far from the large main stations; but, the hostel was located close to the metro line. Large common area was great for relaxing and meeting people.
