Very pleasant and helpfull staff, excellent location, extensive and informative leaflets/maps with a lot of restaurants, shops, etc. A wonderfull stay!


This is a no-frills kind of place; it's a little dingy but still clean and the location is fantastic. Great place to stay if you're looking to save some money.


Good value for money but extremely small rooms


Good hostel for the money paid but rooms were so tiny and literally hardly any space to put a bag. While there were lockers in the room they could be difficult to get to as people put their bags and other things near it due to very very limited space. Within walking distance to nearest JR station.


No curtains for beds, some garbage in the room, pretty clean but not perfect. The common space is so narrow, not really cosy. The staff is cool, the price is low.


Nice staff, easy to get and convenient to take train and find things to eat




This hostel was great value for money, with very friendly staff and a small but friendly common-room that made it easy to meet people. The 8 bed dorm felt a little cramped, but the bed was really comfortable so that made up for it. In particular I really like this hostel because of it's location. It is only a short journey to the famous spots like Shinjuku (perhaps even walkable) but Nakano itself is actually a nice little area too. Neighbouring Koenji was also really cool and walkable.


My new favourite hostel in Tokyo. The staff were willing to wait up for my super late check in time and were very friendly and helpful. The location is one of the best for a Tokyo hostel and is close to Shinjuku. I really enjoyed my stay here and hope to be back soon!


Staff are very friendly and laidback.


Good hostel, the location is not the best (railway Nakano), but has its value. Not had any problems with the place, with only the bed that is very traditional (on the floor). The common area is not the greatest, but the place is acceptable.


The hostel was very squishy, I suppose it was sweet in a way... We were given a map of Nakano (the area) that showed nice places and cheap places to visit, drink, eat and shop. I really liked this aspect.


The kitchen is the worst I have ever seen at a Hostel in Japan, the external walls are so thin it sounded like trucks were driving through the bedroom early in the morning and the bedrooms are so tiny the only place to put my luggage was blocking the door. However, if you only want to use this as a place to crash (not meet people or hang out) it's fine.
