this place is quite a bargain, but very 'no frills'!
try to arrive during the day because the hostel is not quite on the main road and the area is very quiet at night... it can be quite difficult to find K's if there's noone around to beg directions from, and the empty backstreets are a bit unnerving if you are lost!
it is certainly near to a metro station, and some things (e.g. the sumo wrestling place) are walkable [although not exactly a short stroll!]. there's also a 7-11 just across the alleyway (the shop also makes a good shortcut through to the main road!) and the hostel has a little kitchen, so you are unlikely to starve here!
i didnt find the atmosphere to be very sociable, the main sofa area mostly consisted of people on their laptops checking their emails rather than chatting! but the staff were very friendly and helpful with directions, advice on tickets etc.
the shared bathrooms are modern and clean, no problems at all there!
our room was tiny (which you have to expect in tokyo!) but very neat. weirdly, the airconditioner was fitted directly over our bunk beds so that the person up on the top bunk froze and the one on the bottom sweltered. We had to switch rooms on our last night because we booked too late to get our twin for three nights running (the staff were helpful throughout this room switch, i should point out!) but the air con in double room which we were moved to was held together with masking tape and dripped through the night. hopefully the hostel have sorted this out by now!
there is a laundry, which is handy, but it locks up overnight so if you're leaving early for a flight or something make sure you get your stuff out the night before!
i would probably stay here again if i was on the same [very low!] budget... on the whole this place is a bargain by tokyo standards, it's safe and clean and near to a metro and a shop, just don't expect to get more than you've paid for!
