    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.

    Cozy hostel near Ueno. A bit far from the station (15 minutes) but since you walk though parc and non busy streets that’s enjoyable. The couple who runs the hostel is lovely. That’s fine for a couple of nights :)

    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.

    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!
