2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011 via mobile

Really small rooms, shared toilets and walk ups. No lifts. Very friendly staff and decent location.

The area this Hostel is located is incredibly shady. Walking down the street all of the buildings are run down and the people are split between two types, scary looking men in business suits with foreign cars (yakuza), or downtrodden day labourers. I got hit on three times in a five minute walk (once in English where I proceeded to speak back in my limited German).

The Hostel itself is actually an old migrant worker dorm. The bathrooms are unisex (creepy!). And I didn't see anyone there who wasn't also Japanese (I think it's still largely a place migrant workers stay at). The rooms are large enough for one bed, and that's basically it. You go from standing outside your room to crawling onto the bed.

It's pretty close to Chinatown, but not the best part of Chinatown.

If you're a man I think this place would be okay, but females should skip it. Spend the money for a business hotel in a nicer area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

The facilities in this hostel were incredibly clean; this building is still very new and there are hardly any signs of wear anywhere at this hostel. The rooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc smelled very nice too. Our room was very small (it fit two people with their mats on the floor and that was it), but hey, you get what you pay for, right? The only main qualm I had about the room was the lack of an elevator - we stayed on the 5th floor and it was difficult to carry 2 week's worth of luggage up five flights of stairs.
Service was good here, the location is nice too in that it's close to Chinatown, great for if you're planning to visit this area. However, the hostel's direct vicinity is a neighborhood entirely consisting of senior citizens that often stared at us "youngin's" in interest, disapproval, or curiosity, depending on how you may dress (I just thought it was a little strange until I learned the history of the district).
