I am aware that I booked in a high season (new year's) but I think they took advantage about this since this was the most expensive hostel that I stayed on during my whole Japan's experience and it was also the worst in comfort and location.


This hostel was good, fairly basic but not completely dodgy. I told staff a couple of times that there was a bad smell outside my room, and nothing was done about it...


Met a lot of nice backpackers there, but the hostel itself isn't a great one...


Good and cheap hostel, everythings well. Good staff, always helping and good common areas. Wi-fi works perfectly. Clean rooms and good socializing here. Recommended 100%


Bedding was not changed from previous occupant. Cleaning was not up to scratch. Carpet was old and coming up; paint peeling. Bathroom didn't look clean and smelt of urine in the morning. PCs in the foyer looked to be 10 years old. Total renewal required.

Friendly staff


Go for it. The location is a bit boring, but the walk to the subway is not that bad really. The hostel is full of nice details and feels like a good place to meet people. Dorm had it's own fridge, wifi works, no curfew, lockers...


The guy at the front end was amazing. The test was good but a little much for what you get

The staff were excellent and very helpful. However, the location wasn't too convenient. Just too far a walk from the most connected trainlines. After walking around Tokyo all day long, it's not great to have to walk a good 20mins to the hostel.


The room smels very bad and the Aircondition was half broken.

Was a really nice hostel. Staff a very nice and helpful. Is in a good location for sight seeing but not very near the club area. Easy to get to from the airport


A little out of the way but easy walking distance to metro. Staff very friendly but speak limited English. Good kitchen area and common area. Only a few showers but everyone seemed to make it work.


The hostel is nice and the staff is very helpful. The location is good if you are interested in Asakusa area, but is far from Shibuya area. For the price the hostel is good.


Nice hostel, very friendly help at front desk. Answered all my questions and more. Was in a quiet neighborhood of Tokyo but close to station so all in all, very happy with my stay.

safe area for solo women..about a 15 minute walk from beautiful Senso-ji Temple.. & a 10 minute walk from a metro station. The room was only OK - was in the female dorm.. and we had a private bathroom which was nice... but wifi did not work in the room. Room smelt of mold, and smell stayed on my things for a day or two afterwards. Difficult to make friends - people kept to themselves and rarely visited the common lounge area. Overall, this hostel is alright!


Due to a Typhoon never made it in.But, the staff were understanding with my reservations.
