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.

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!

Employees were very friendly and helpful. I went on the fish market tour. It wasn't Tsujiki but it was better, more up close and less crowded. We went for sushi breakfast after. Amazing food and great company!

Not too many sight-seeing places or shops close-by. But loved the atmosphere especially the common room, it feels very open for people to just hang around and socialize. Female dorms have a nice amount of floor space for sorting luggage which is nice. The owner at the hostel was extremely helpful, he even gave me a discount when I had to book an extra day at the hostel. Although the building is a bit run down rooms and washrooms were especially clean. Would definitely stay again.

The staff was really friendly and helpful when i asked the question about "what to do in my few days in Tokyo. They spoke good english and even guided me to the bus station on my departure day. I can only recommend it as its clean, the staff is nice and it is cheap, what else could you wish for?

very nice hostel with very good staff who would help you with every thing they can. about facilities... you get everything you need! there are even 2 tv's in the lounge and a kitchen for every one to use ( the lounge is quite big). every room the AC and controls. the dorms are quite small but big enough to get by. most of the bad points in this place are in the cosmetic stuff. the lounge is on the second floor so you'll meet only the people that go there and the people ..... running out of char

Decent hostel but unfortunately not the best in Tokyo. When I stayed I found that the room wasn't cleaned everyday but that wasn't too much of an issue as there were only 2 of us in a 6 bed dorm. The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the station which can sometimes be annoying, however there are some nice cheap places to eat nearby.

You definitely get what you pay for here. It's cheap and does the job with friendly staff and a kitchen but they lost the key to my dorm room so I had to hope someone had left it unlocked and the bathroom was broken in my unit so we had to break into other rooms to use theirs. The location isn't ideal, there's not much to do around it and lacks the "Tokyo" nightlife but it's close to the train station.
