This place is good for people looking to find a place to stay in Tokyo on a budget. It has amenities such as a common area kitchen, hot private showers, computer lounge, and a smoking area. We booked a room for two and since this was not the room we booked (didn't have a bathroom) so I was given a... More

It's cheap and has a good location. When me and my friend arrived at the hostel, they had made a mistake with the booking, so we had to stay in two different dorm rooms. Also, the staff can't really speak english. It's not the best hostel in the area but they can accommodate a lot of people and the price... More

We stayed in this hostel for a week. The location was quite good, 10min walk from a metro station and 20 min walk from Asakusa, a really nice area. The area was quiet and safe with a supermarket, post office and several convenient stores nearby. We thought we had a twin room but had to share a very small double... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, we booked the room for 3 Adult with Ensuite Bathroom, the room looks old,also unfortunately the room with a Wallpaper decor is not favourable for me, but maybe it suits for another guests. The room itself are clean enough, but we found the room really had a tendency to be dusty, and somehow made us... More

Really nice hostel, amazing people and amazing atmosphere. 5 minutes from Minowa Station, the neighborhood is really nice and quiet and it feels perfectly safe even when you're walking home in the middle of the night after a crazy night out in Roppongi. Definitely gonna stay there again!

Too expensive, small and old, good internet connection, I little bit far of the touristic attractions, good front desk attention. Tokyo is a very expensive city but I believe you can find better options, this hostel was ok for a couple of nights but I won't be there for more time

This hostel does nothing more or nothing less than it claims too but this isn't a problem because it is exactly what is needed; a bed, a shower, a toilet and a place to relax. Staff were friendly and helpful when they need to be. I personally did not use the kitchen facilities but no one else who was staying... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. They accommodate people from all over the world! It's close to the subway station and it only takes 15-20 min to Shibuya. If you donät mind staying in dorms, this place is great for you. It's cheap and the staff is friendly!

The positive reviews must be from long ago. I can tell the place used to be quite popular, but it needs serious updating and cleaning. I'm not that picky but they literally hadn't wiped the sink down in at least a week, there were chunks of food and junk all over the kitchen and main areas, the entire outlet didn't... More
