Only one staff member fond and he was far to interested in his own world to care about anything.. Top bunks in the room were broken, almost dangerous. 5th bed was incredibly uncomfortable, could feel springs digging into my back. One of ou party of 5 suffered an allergy attack due to dirt and dusty room. Heater did not work, so very cold night. Kitchen was filthy and left that way for more than 24 hrs.


A bit out of the way from major tourist areas in the west side of Tokyo, but not too bad if you want to do a lot of exploring around the east side. About a 15 minute walk from Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, quick subway rides to Akihabara and Odaiba. Staff was pleasant, showers were excellent. I had the bottom bunk which, for a tall guy like me, didn't give me much head space. Cheaper than the average hostel in Tokyo.


old, smelly, dirty hostel, rude staff and far away from everything


Big rats in the kitchen !!!!! But rats can't enter your room as long as doors are closed !!! Not very well located .... Close to Ueno but it takes a 25 minutes walk !!! Or 2 stops by subway but transports in Japan stop at midnight. In terms of price .... it should be cheaper !!!! Really cheaper !!!! I was in Sakura Hostel in ikebukuro and it was really much better !!!!

Was under construction when we stayed, didn't offer any discount. Location is very poor, not near any metro or JR line and area around is pretty dead. I was staying on the 2nd floor and had to go to the 5th floor for a shower or bathroom


Floors smelt of cheese (had to wash all my socks and shoes after) there is only one bathroom as the 2nd floor one is being built (they start work at 9am so no need to set an alarm) so have to use the 5th floor shower/ toilet. Location is ok if you don't mind using the metro all the time to commute. Wifi is good!!


Had an amazing stay and met some amazing new people. The staff took me out to Ueno on a Saturday night and we ended up having quite a wild time.


Had a twin room with ensuite, was lovely and not a bad location!
