“Very comfortable place”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere and the facilities are no doubt awesome with cheap price! The only disadvantage is the location. After shopping and hanging around Tokyo, my legs told me that i should find a hotel just nearby the station next time. Regardless of the disadvantage, i still love the mattress, vintage lobby and the bathtub. People live in Minamisenju area are friendly made my trip filled with joy!

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

I have stayed at this cozy hotel this Sep. for 5 nights. The hotel is very like a hostel that is everything you have to do with yourself. The hotel is very comfortable and stylish, also the price is very reasonable, just is a little far away from the station Minamisenju. Very nice!

Perfect place to stay on a budget if you want privacy! Extremely clean, modern and comfortable. I would recommend this to my friends/family. Unusual area of Tokyo (lots of homeless men on the street), however very close to the station and supermarket. Staff have good english and are willing to help.

The rooms are essentially that large for this to fit: 2 single mattresses and a fridge - something like 6 square meters. This is very small especially for a couple with a suitcase. However the hotel looks very recent and it is clean. It is 10 mins from the nearest metro station, which itself is a few hops away from some of the key points of interests in Tokyo. You need a good map, the hotel is slightly difficult to find. The walls are thin and it can get noisy, especially the hallways. English-speaking staff, but not available 24/7. Shared toilets and shower are clean.

This place was a wonderful place to stay and I really enjoyed the feature of having a TV (even though all the channels were Japanese) and a mini fridge in the room and u probably can't find a place where u can have a room (small as it may be) to urself with no one to disturb u.

It is located abt 15mins away from the station in a rather quiet neighborhood but I never felt unsafe heading back late at night and I like the fact that there was a small supermarket just 3 mins away from the hostel.

If I had to nikpick anything, it would probably be that the shower was at level 1, which meant I had to cart all my shower necessities downstairs each time I wanted to shower, which is quite inconvenient if I was to forget anything. But they had shower gel, shampoo and condition in the toilets for those who ain't fussy with what they use ...

I would definitely stay here again on my future visits to Tokyo ... ^^

Small but comfortable room, free internet, good shower and bath, vending and washing machine and some tables to eat your breakfast or bento and close to public transport.
Everything a traveler needs, for a correct price.
We liked the functional and original modern architecture of this hotel, which makes more than just a fine hotel!
