I recently stayed at Sakura for 4 days. I stayed at the dormitory in the basement. Here are the Pros and Cons:
1. Very affordable (still expensive but you can't find anything cheaper than that in Tokyo)
2. Excellent location - just a five min walk from Jimbocho station. Jimbocho station lies on Shinjuku line (of coursen that goes to Shinjuku),Hanzomon line (Goes to Shibuya) and Mita Line.
3. 24 hour cafe and bar
4. Good security - your access card is changed everyday. That is a very good way of ensuring security for shared accomodation like dorms.
5. Staff is super fluent in English - at times I wonder if they are Japanese!!
6. Book swap - you can swap your books for the ones in their library. I did a swap too. It is a win-win for everybody.
7. Curtains on dorm beds - I didn't realize these curtains could help so much. Your sleep is not affected by people switching on lights, using cellphones etc. Of course, that doesn't stop the noise of slamming doors!!
1. Ventilation is bad in basement dorm - if you plan to stay in the hotel during the day, then I would not recommend the basement dorms. However, if you are just going to use it for night's sleep like I did, then you are perfectly fine. Even if one of the guests has a contagious infection, you are affected.
