    Great place in every way. The train theme is really cool and endearing. Only thing lacking was some atmosphere, but you can always go out if you really want to party haha.

    A great hostel, centrally located, and easily accessible. We use the JR Rail Pass, and having Bakurocho station right there, and Asakusabashi within 10 minutes walking distance made it very easy for us to get around. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Midway through our stay, we were asked to change floors because of renovations, would have been great to have been advised about this prior to the day of. It was a minor inconvenience to another wise great facility. Would recommend this hostel.

    It was fine but not amazing. The beds were a little small. Easy to get anywhere in Tokyo from there, but very little atmosphere, and no working lock on the dorm door.

    I really, really wanted to like this hostel. The idea is fun, but sleeper cars make for uncomfortable beds. The ladders are so thin and hard, it hurt my feet to get out of bed. My room was next to the lounge and it was really, really loud. No quiet hours enforced. The room was also INSANELY hot with no way to control it. Lots of showers, though! If you stay here, get a lower bunk on any floor but 2. No major trainlines nearby unless you walk to Akihabara, so be prepared for transfers.
