    Location was perfect and the shower and bathroom facilities were great. My only complain was that rooms weren’t locked and didn’t have lockers in them.

    Good hostel, close to the Shinjuku station. Not the best hostel in Japan, but might be enough if you are looking for accommodation around this area.

    A clean hostel located within walking distance of Shinjuku. Not much of an atmosphere, and security was a bit lax (room door can’t be locked) but it’s a steal for the price. Would book again.

    Decent place to stay, the staff are very nice. Close to 3 stations. In the middle of Korea town. No bedsheets or locks on the dorm rooms though, which is odd. Common area is pretty small and the guests don't really hang out there.

    Good little family-run hostel, but a little old and could receive an update on facilities. Greater security (eg. locks for entry, room doors) would be lovely. Excellent location.

    Very Good

    Very good location, otherwise I was not the biggest fan of the hostel. Doors were open 24/7, the hostel had 24h reception with cameras whereas it was not that bad anyway. The bed was not either my favourite. All in all I did not find the hostel worth the money.

    This place was really smelly, sometimes like p*ss. The older man that works at the hostel was pretty terrible and not really that willing to help. This place also only offers a washer and not actually a dryer. It was also expensive for what you get. The location is ok but you’re better off staying elsewhere for half the price. Try Ueno near Amayoko Market.
