This is one of my favourite hostels that I have stayed at. It is well located, just a 5 minute walk from the Asakusabashi station where you can access the Toei Asakusa line and the Chuo-Sobu JR line.
The staff were really friendly and answered all of my questions. I was staying in one of the large mixed dorms with the wooden capsule-style beds. These beds were really cosy and offered a nice bit of privacy as well as a place to lock your belongings. I was in Tokyo at one of the hottest times of the year, so most people slept with the capsule doors open as even though the room was air conditioned, it could get pretty hot inside the capsules.
The bathrooms were nice and clean, with good showers and those wonderful Japanese toilets with the controllers on the side.
The common room was really nice with free tea and coffee, a nice kitchen and a vending machine. I made lots of friends here, it's a really nice place to hang out.
My only gripe with this hostel was the lack of elevator. I was on the 5th floor and the steps were narrow and steep. Lugging my two large cases up those stairs was no easy task! Aside from the dreaded stairs, this was a fabulous hostel and a great place for solo travellers on a budget hoping to meet some travel companions.
