This hostel is situated near Ikebukuro station, just few minutes away from Fukutoshin Line. I was comfortable with the hotel room in Japanese tatami style. There was two 100yen shops nearby. There are restaurants along the streets. I stayed at Japanese room with shared toilet and bathroom. They provide simple free breakfast which save my cost for breakfast. The only... More

Stayed for two weeks with my two girls and hubby. House ikebukuro was the best n unbeatable place to stay in terms of location n value for money. Mrs Chen the owner definitely deserves credit for running this spotless n home-away-from-home hostel.

In a room for 4, space is limited I barely had space to even place my luggage. The Japanese style mattress was confortable though. The staff wasn't so friendly and had very little command of English. Apart from its cleanliness & location, I don't think I will consider this place.

Stayed for 9 nights from 10-19 Mar. Mrs Chan is nice. Toilets/Bathrooms are always clean which time we (4 of us) uses it. I am really impressed how Mrs Chan and her team keeps the place so neat & clean. Plenty of eateries around (cheap abt 380 yen for curry rice), Family Mart & 7-11 just across the street. Property...

4 adults & 3 kids (9, 6, 5 yos)... not an easy number to arrange accommodation for if you've been researching inexpensive accommodation in Tokyo, especially the part about how to accommodate the 3rd kid. Tokyo House Ikebukuro had the right configuration of rooms - we stayed in a 3-tatami room with attached bathroom and a 4-tatami room without the... More

I stayed in the ensuite annex Japanese room with my family. The map given a bit confusing at first but the location is easy when you are used to the road the next day. I regret bringing the trolley bag and wished that I brought a backback since you have to walk quite a distance to the guesthouse. It's not... More

The location is great, very close to subway station. The room was stink. There were hairs on the blanket since check-in, seemed like they didn't change the blanket from the previous guest. It's cheap though, but I think we can stay at the same price for a clean room. The great thing is they provided free washing machine!!!!

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
