The location isn't bad - three stops away from Shinjuku station. The directions given to me when I booked were superb! A short walk from the train station - some restaurants and shops on the way. The staff was SOO friendly and SO informative which was a big plus. You are given clean sheets for you bed and pillow. The... More

It's a tiny hostel, pathways, rooms and kitchens are all tiny, but they're clean and comfortable enough for me. I was lucky to bump into the Tuesday dinner event, which was a great experience cuz many kind and interesting locals living in neighborhood were joining, and most of them were middle-age people that we seldom get to meet in hostels....

I stayed two nights in the main building in the eight bed mixed dorm room. As a backpacker of sorts, it suited my needs very nicely. It's about a five minute walk to the train station, and there is a convenience store right across the street. I got to meet new people and had fun.

I have been here just one time as guest for a week, and another two times I booked for my friends (I was at my girlfriend's house), but each time I come back in Japan I go there to meet some staff members that become my friend! Wanting to be honest, it isn't a place to advice to a couple... More

My wife & I stayed at Yadoya , Suzushiro A annex for 4 nights during October 2013. The accommodation is a bit 'worn' but it's reasonably clean & conveniently located with Higashi Nakano station, shops & restaurants nearby. The kitchen/sitting room is well equipped with a cooker, microwave,toaster, fridge/freezer, TV & free wi-fi.This hostel presents good value for money &... More

although I was not at Yadoya's weekly dinner, where there could have been a communal feel, I can say that for other days the place was pretty uninspiring. Great location, near nakano and shinjuku, great wifi and low price, there were as many inconvenient moments as there were pleasant ones. Would not recommend the close quarters of the main room,...

We stayed in august 2012 in a private room. The bigger room was taken and we were told by the staff the smaller room is VERY small, but we booked in anyway. The room was indeed small, just enough room to sleep in but no room for your bags. The facilities were clean. We never used the shared kitchen. The... More

The location is really good, this is 7 min walk from station, one stop from the Shinjuku, Tokyo also I would recommend go and visit the closest public bath which is absolutely awesome. Price is very atractive, staff are ok. I must admit Yadoya has the smallest ever rooms that I've slept slept in however if you are planing stay... More

It's cheap, and the room and facilities are fine for the price. Bedsheets are clean. But the other guests are unpleasant, and atmosphere is lousy. Wish I were somewhere else. Should have stayed at New Koyo.
