The Hostel is in a government building on the 18 and 19 Floor with amazing views over Toyko. The hostel on the 19 Floor has onsen and shared shower facilities along with toilets on both levels. The hostel has high speed and fast wifi in the center of each floor so you can ask for a room near the center... More

After 11pm it is impossible to enter in the hostel. Personally it was the thing that make me go but if you don't want to go out... More

We'd looked forward to our two nights in this sky high hostel. The location is good. Very close to the subway & JR trains. Lots of places to eat (including a grocery store) in the building. But the rooms weren't as comfortable as we'd wished. Really slim mattresses that made for uncomfortable sleep. The air conditioning couldn't quite mask the... More

I stayed here for a night with a friend in a room that was for three people. Split between 2 people it was still reasonable. Oddly, it was set up for four (two bunk beds). It had a sitting area and a nice window. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were vending machines in the sitting area. If you... 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.
