I stayed here with my friend from Nov 24-27, 2012 in a twin private room. I am not a hostel person and expected the worst. I was happily surprised at the cleanliness of the room and shower facilities. It was also not a noisy place. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Great value for money (we could not have found anywhere else as cheap and clean) and great location for seeing Tokyo by subway.
Anne Hostel is about 5 minutes walk from the subway station and once on the subway train, minutes from the sights in Tokyo.
We were out early every day (6 am), missing the free hostel breakfast, so we stopped at the Seven Eleven for a coffee (buy the disposable cups that come with a sachet of coffee and creamer) on our way to the subway station. Cheap and convenient.
The Anne Hostel subway station is one station from the Ryogoku Station, which is where the Sumo Stadium and museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum are located. Both are worth a trip. Also eat lunch or dinner at the restaurant attached to the Ryogoku Station. It is owned by a famous ex Sumo wrestler and has a sumo wrestling ring in the middle of the restaurant. We were the only westerners dining there for lunch amongst locals and Japanese tourists. Great food, great sumo paintings, and ambiance.More
