    The staff at Emblem were incredibly friendly and the facilities were great. They organised events just about every night. The hostel is about an hour from Shibuya area but it’s great if you want to be a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. The area of Nishiarai has a lot of shops and great restaurants.

    Staying at Emblem was the best decision that I made during my trips to Tokyo. Emblem's staff does a phenomenal job at creating a social environment through hosting interesting events, which creates a sense of community amongst the guests, the local neighborhood, and the staff. The living quarters were comfortable, pristine, and provided a ton of privacy. I especially loved the location. Nishiarai station, Aeon supermarket, and many food locations are around too! I would definitely come back!

    The hostel is a bit far from city center (30-40min train ride), but it is located right next to the train station so it is super convenient to get there. There is also a supermarket next door. The facilities themselves were wonderful. Everything was spotless and the staff spoke English and were super helpful. We stayed in a triple and I really liked the curtains on the beds. They were a game changer when it came to getting a good night's sleep. The beds were also super comfy (:

    Was an amazing place to stay! There is a massive grocery story (AEON) opposite for cheap food/snacks (and beers!) It is less than a minute walk from the train station. Would definitely recommend and come back!

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Great atmosphere, great location and great staff. They run a meet up event (I think everyday) so you can meet people - I met a few awesome guys there and we went to karaoke which was hella fun) I'm vegetarian, and the manager Mark is also - he showed me what I can and couldn't eat and what to buy outside too. 100% recommend.

    My first hostel experience and it was a great one! Mark was awesome and so is the team that works there, super friendly and welcoming people. The activities set up by the hostel are a great way to meet people. I was solo travelling and ended up meeting 3 people there that would accompany me for the remainder of my trip. The hostel is around 40min from the main sites in Tokyo, but the train station is literally a 30 second walk from the hostel so it's not bad at all. Would definitely stay again!

    Really nice quiet hostel. It’s too far out of the city imo. You end up spending so much on transportation. Very clean and quiet which makes it less social. Would probably not stay here if I was traveling alone
