Yadoya is a cheap and great hostel. I stayed there for 3 nights in female dormitory room. Even the room is quite small, it's clean. However, it is quite inconvenient for people who come with a big luggage. The staffs are friendly and helpful.


It could be better if there is hot water dispenser or electric kettle instead of normal kettle that need more time to boiling it by gas cooker. make me do not want to use the hot water. Overall is good.


Cheapest backpackers by far in tokyo. Although location is quite far from the main attractions it is still accessible. Staff were helpful eg. helped to purchase museum tickets that can only be bought there.


the staff was super friendly and fairly fluent in english. they offer bike rentals and maps, the common area is very cute and full of things to entertain yourself. in the 8 bed dorm, two sets of bunks are right up against each other with a bit of plexiglass between them, so expect less than 0 privacy.

It is situated off the busier parts of Tokyo but is still close to Shinjuku so it is a good place to rest for the night away from the noise and go for the attractions at nearby areas. The space is quite small but it is comfortable enough for my stay there.


I 100% recommend this guesthouse to stay in for a Tokyo stay. We arrived for a late check in, and let them know in advance. They spoke excellent English, provided clear directions to the hostel, as well as maps and plenty of information. It was incredibly clean. There were more facilities than I would usually expect, multiple hair driers, showers on each floor, more guidebooks, cooking facilities. I felt very secure and safe in the hostel and would happily stay there again- or in another branch!
