I actually found this hostel to be fairly easy to find. The only problem was figuring out which direction to walk once you get out of the station. (Tip: Take exit 4 and make a right toward the department store and head straight down) The hostel's location isn't too bad. I would say it's about a 5 minute walk to the nearest station (susukino) and it's pretty much just a straight line to get there.
The night I arrived, the hostel was hosting a "takoyaki night" and it was a great chance to meet other travellers and enjoy some really good homemade takoyaki and other food. I thought it was really great that the staff would do this sort of thing and speaks to how friendly and helpful they are.
The facilities are absolutely incredible. Very very modern, spacious, and clean. The common room is a very nice place to hang out and talk it up with other people and the dormitory was very comfortable.
If there was one downside, it would be that the heater in the dorm was not very good, but besides that, this is the best hostel I have ever lived in.
