The hostel provided everything I needed, but I expected more. No way to charge my devices in the 4-bed-dorm. There were two sockets: One was right by someone else's bed where they put their head, and the other one was in the corner where you could not reach it. There were no bedside lamps. WiFi did not reach my room (at least my iPad didn't catch it), which was basically right next to the reception. I loved the location, security and common areas. Staff was very friendly. Bathroom was ok.
The hostel could use a communal kitchen!

Excellent place to stay! Very welcoming and helpful staff, cosy rooms, fully equipped kitchen, great location. I was almost sad to leave.
Would come back any time to this hostel! Rooms, beds, facilities, staff, breakfast, safety measures: everything excellent, rather new. Be sure to bring a big lock for the lockers under the beds.
Okay to stay here for 2 or 3 nights but don't expect much. Although the reception staff was friendly and helpful, it seemed that nobody ever cleaned the shower area while I was there (2 nights). Posters on the doors say "Tell us if it's dirty, we'll be glad to clean it up for you" but this shouldn't be the guests' responsibility. It's a hostel, of course it gets dirty! The air in my 10 bed dorm was bad, no possibility to open a window. Breakfast was poor, kitchen uninviting (small, sticky).
Very nice and clean hostel with friendly staff. Great location, felt safe. They kept my luggage safe for the entire day after I checked out. Breakfast was good enough. The kitchen was well equipped and inviting, although the "dining room" seemed a little depressing (basement). Stayed there for the second time, and am likely to come again!
I stayed one night in a 15 bed mixed dorm. Bunk beds were 3 beds on top of each other, which is why they were shaking all the time; annoying. Safety lockers in the room are a plus. Very busy room, people were returning late at night, smelling like cigarettes and alcohol; not very nice to be woken up by that. Bathrooms were okay. However, only 2 very tiny sinks for 15 people seems not very well thought out. Location is unbeatable, though, if you need to get to Victoria Station fast.
Nice hostel with friendly staff. Although toilets and showers were clean, the sinks leave some cleanness to be desired. What is not so great is that everyone can enter the dorms, as there are no room keys. Theoretically, someone could enter unauthorizedly through the entrance on the ground floor. Locks on the doors might be a good idea to make guests feel safer about their luggage. Also, I have to say that the receptionist gave us wrong directions. :/ All in all a good enough place to stay.
Perfect hostel to stay at! Small size, personal atmosphere, very clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Jimmy is nice to talk to. Location is okay, 2 stops from the main station. Locals claimed it was a dangerous area but we felt perfectly safe; didn't notice anything suspicious. The best hostel we stayed at in Japan!
