I stayed at Ace Inn twice during my time in Japan. It's comfortable, cheap and very close to the Toei Shinjuku line (this isn't a JR line though so if you have a JR pass you will still have to pay for a ticket). There is internet on every floor, free towels and the staff are friendly and helpful. There... More

For the price quality I think it is pretty nice. It is a very good place for backpackers and young people. The only thing is that lockers are quite small, just enough to put ur personal effects , suitcases you will have to leave it outside. I would definetly come back to this place if I travel again to Tokyo.

This was the worst hostel experience I have ever had in my life. Me and my wife stayed for one night (even that was too much too handle) and I left broken and bruised. Broken because I fell down the stairs, and also bruised because my mattress was thin and made of horse hair. My wife didnt sleep because the... More

Price, service, comfort, hygiene and even offer towels for free. One of the best money I found. Hostel frequented by people of many nationalities. The bath is also free although it seems that you pay.

My husband and I recently spent a month backpacking in Japan... we started in Tokyo at the Ace Inn. Not bad for the money in Tokyo... Pros: *The information on the website was great, so we had no problems getting from the airport to the front door. Saves a lot of headaches when you are tired! *Friendly and helpful staff......

I stayed in the mixed dorms. Capsule beds were OK but somewhat hard. The beds were clean but the place is a little run down. Showers are in the basement but that turned out to be amusing more than annoying. There is a nice lounge with vending machines and the ability to boil water etc... The staff were helpful and...

Stayed there while in Tokyo visiting my son who lives in Fukishima. It was cheap but I was keen to stay there anyway as I liked the idea of capsule beds. Wi-fi coverage was great and the beds were comfortable enough! Showers were also very warm. Staff spoke good english and were friendly & helpful. Would have preferred a power... More

I stayed here with my mom during high peak season (spring) and all other places seemed to be fully booked and we were lucky we could stay at this cute lodge that allows female guests. Most capsule hotels in Japan only allow male guests to begin with, so we were glad and surprised. Location was great, close to shopping places... More

Stayed for a night with my mates. We were a little disappointed all in all. Here's what we experienced in this capsule hotel. 1. The check in time is at 3pm but the reception gave us our capsule rooms VERY LATE. Time? 6:00pm. They have the common area or the "recreation area" on the 9th floor and it's filthy and... More

Staying in Yotsuya / Iidabashi

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
