Positive points : Lobby and patio are very comfortable and convenient. Wifi in room works great. Hostel is conveniently located. Where they need to improve : Staff is not welcoming. Rooms look like army dorms in the '60s. The bed is more a camp bed. That can be sufficient when it is cheap but at 100$ per night that feels really crappy. Showers are old and some are broken, and most of time not clean. You share 4 showers (2men and 2 women) for a whole floor. Breakfast is awful (fat and untasty

We took a private room. It was extremely small (e.g. no space to put luggage in the room) besides the first room we had was smelly.

We didn't have hot water for a day in our private bathroom. Not that problematic as there were other bathrooms but still annoying.

We are very sorry about that inconvenience... as soon as you told us about the shower we fixed it, and next day we solved the rest. We know also that everything should be working but sometimes things get broke. Sorry again, we hope to don�t let this happen again. You are welcome back at any time to our house. Happy Travelling!

Second time, I go to this ryokan and I will definitely go back once again. The only drawback is that it is a little bit far from the subway
