A few things: - please also state that the common room is not accessible 24/7; - same goes for the showers - if you say '5 person shared room', i expect it to be one goddamn room and not a room with two doors and a veil inbetween to 'separate' the rooms. - I am not 12 nor stupid. I do not want an evening clock. Would not go here again based on facilities and possibilities alone. Nothing bad about the staff.
the staff lack of local transport or sightseeing knowledge even just within the tokyo city. i am not sure it is the culture that Japanese seldom go out?
The most negative point is that they lock you out of the hostel from midnight to 6 in the morning and out of the rooms between 10 and 4. But even if this fact wouldn't be there, it still won't become my favourite hostel because it has too much 70's style for me.
I liked the curfew idea, no noisy people coming to the room in the middle of the night!
The facilities are old although they are somewhat clean. There is no elevator, which makes it hard to carry a suitcase. In addition, I could not believe that this hostel had a curfew. It closes at 12:00am and reopen at 6:00am. I feel that the hostel should change the door lock and open 24 hours for people who are staying. Now there is only one wire around the doors. I think that the security is weak.

A great place to stay if you don't mind the curfew hours. The staff were nice and helpful and it's a good hostel to meet other people travelling Tokyo
Overall it's not terrible but try to go elsewhere if you can. I was only there as last resort. - staff weren't mean but not welcoming at all - dorm rooms are way too small, not really enough space to walk in - very difficult to sleep in the dorms as the walls are are literally paper thin and you can here everything even from several floors down - only 2 showers and really restrictive rules about what time you can use them - not enough privacy - no internet In rooms and no power plugs
