Property Description

'Feel what it's like to stay in down town Tokyo.”
Built in 1972, the building used to be a pork cutlet restaurant and has been renovated to give you a taste of life in a down town shopping arcade.
Just one station from the Ikebukuro hub we aim to deliver you life off the beaten trail.
'The machine that joins fabric together brings the town together' is the concept of our Machine Cafe. Fabric culture and handmade clothing is a language that crosses boarders and generations.
Our Japanese style rooms have been loved for 45 years so we have named them 'Wanoiro' or 'Colours of Japan' and themed the fabric accents in the rooms to match.
The lounge located on the ground floor is not only for overseas guests but for anyone staying with us as well as locals so we hold daytime events, and you can enjoy Japanese appetizers and Sake on weekend evenings.
We are a lodge surrounded by local culture so our hostel is kept as simple as possible so we only have a shower room available. Please make the most of your stay by visiting local restaurants and bathhouse and enjoy a taste of local Tokyo everyday life. View House Rules

    I love this hostel with my whole being and I cannot wait to go back and visit them again. Hands down some of my most favorite nights in Tokyo. Thank you so, so much for the wonderful time.

    I really loved my stay at Sheena and Ippei! Located in the quiet area of Shiinamachi (just one stop from crazy Ikebukuro), it's having this special atmosphere I was looking for. You do not feel in Tokyo with locals coming to visit for food or a workshop or simply to talk. Everyone knows each other! I loved the decoration in the common room but also in the dorms. Shota was a lovely host and shared with us some really good tips where to eat around. Would definitely go again!!!

    This place has its own magic. Magic is a tatami platform, a kitchen, sewing machines,  weaven together by the super friendly smiles of Ichiko san. Definitely, the most homey place i have ever stayed in tokyo, and i would love to return.
