A little hard to find, clean rooms with wifi and helpfull staff. Right next door was a convenience store and restaurants. I didn't really spend a huge amount of time in the room as I was exploring Tokyo. For me it was a fine place to stay.
Like the location of this hostel, and the staff is excellent, they gave us very good recommendations on restaurants and bars.
Just, there are not curtains, and the street (and all Tokyo) is full of ligts, so it is enlighten. (we did in the room 303). otherwise, the rooms are japanese style, beautiful. The staff is the best! very kindly, helpful person.
Excellent attention from all staff....A little difficult to find at first, we got off at Shinjuku station ..its only 3 minutes from Shin Okubu...very clean...would recommend highly
A beautiful hotel in a perfect location with an abundance of food places, convenience stores and only one stop away from Shinjuku! Clean and with a friendly yet polite and professional service - my favourite and the most comfortable stays in the duration of my Japan trip! Thank you Shin-Okubo Sekitei!
Very good value for money and felt like a traditional ryokan. Staff very friendly. Only improvement I could think of is that there are no room safes.

There is one particular guy who works here who will literally run to help you out...he is amazing. The location of the hostel is also perfect- right on the main subway lines and close to lots of places to eat. Very clean and fun little traditional style rooms. I would highly recommend this hostel and would stay here again!
location is very excellent as it is close to shin okubo station(yamanote line) and close to lots of asia restaurant. the hotel is very beautiful as it has japanese style room and also the hallway(i like it!).the room quite small but complete with all of the facilitites.i surely recomended this hostel
An excellent place to stay, excellent location and brilliant staff. Will definitely stay there again when I'm back in Tokyo.
The bathroom left a lot to be desired, pipes on the wall and very out dated, the worlds smallest toilet room, you could rest your knees and head on the wall I front while you did your business.. Traditional futon bed, paper thin futon. No chairs. Staff were very lovely and helpful however. Booked for 8 nights, stayed 1.
