    great place to stay for the cost. Yeah its little far from Tokyo and about a 15 minute walk from the nearest station, but you really do get an authentic feel. Meiko-san is a fantastic person who really makes you feel welcomed.

    Well, This is not a Hotel or Hostel. It's someone's HOME, in my opinion. So if you want some modern facilities or services, you might get a little disappointment. But If you want know what it looks like a Japanese lifestyle, it should be a good place.

    It’s a small Japanese hostel, in general is good. But men’s room was so overcrowded and cleanliness was not as good as I wanted.

    The hostel was decent, but the beds were not as clean, they had hairs in, and the toilet was a bit smelly but not that dirty. Staff were polite and there didn't seem to be much of a social atmosphere. Good value for price and overall stay was ok

    Only one toilet and it smells terrible. Pee stains on the floor. Got bitten by dozens of insects during the night, including what I think was a giant centipede which was painful for a couple weeks. Staff was very friendly but the owner's assistant was sleeping in the same room as the guests and was up and down all night turning lights on and off in the room. Bed was not clean - crumbs all over the mattress. No comfortable places to chill in the hostel. Wish I'd stayed at the media cafe.

    Didn't feel the security was good since the front door is always open, no safes, and no privacy. Rooms were a bunch of bunk beds stacked next to each other. Not very clean and the location wasn't too good. Also the place smelled of cigarette smoke which really turned me off. However it is cheap, so not the worst place to stay if you don't mind that sort of thing. Staff were very nice however.

    Only booked it because it was the cheapest at the time. Stayed one night and was happy it wasn’t longer. Bathroom was rather disgusting, smelled like pee and everybody had to share one toilet and one shower. The sink was shared between kitchen and bathroom which is very insanitary. Great social life though, but I be able to do it just for that though. Breakfast is basically rice, you can easily do better by going to the grocery store 4 minutes away

    Kitchen and shower were filthy, bathroom was okay. You wash up in the kitchen sink. The laundry machine can’t be used and living on the main floor means you hear everything outside the thin shutter door. Beds are thin and uncomfortable/dirty. Found wrappers and dirt under the bed. No safety box, no lamps, no curtains, no space, and hopefully you don’t get the top bunk or a dirty heater will be blowing air into your face all night. Location is creepy and very far from the station. Cheap, though!
