    This is probably was my favorite hostel I've stayed at, so much so that I needed to write a review. Everyone working there was very helpful, knowledgable, and just generally fun to be around. While the area is a little quieter than other areas, the train is right there and they have recommendations to a lot of local spots that I highly recommend. Would definitely stay here again.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Emblem, especially the activities they host every day. The location is a bit off but honestly this can be a plus, as the atmosphere becomes more authentically Japanese. I would definitely come back here!

    Our stay was really good at Emblem Hostel, the only downside is that it is one hour away from Tokyo Centrum. But if you already have been to Tokyo city, it's such a nice place, and the hostel arrange a lot of things, such as meet ups, and activities. The beds were really comfy, and the hostel were overall clean. It is a small kitchen but you can keep your food in the fridge and there are not much, but some cutlery and plates. There's also a gym you can use for 2 hours for 500 yen, which was nice

    Great place to stay in. The common ground floor is a great place to chill out in. If you don't mind travelling, it takes about 1 hour by metro (Door to Door) to get to most of the popular tourists activities.

    Loved staying here! The activities really got people together. Wish i had more time. The only problem is that it is a little far away from the popular areas (akihabara is close though), but the atmosphere is amazing, met so many good peeps. Recommending my brother and his mates to stay here in june. 😍

    Awesome hostel, great friendly staff and cool hangout area. Just a little too far out of the main city for us, but you are looking for a local experience I would highly recommend.
