I stayed at Aizuya Inn for about a week while doing intensive language studies in Tokyo. One of my concerns about staying in a hostel to study was what the noise level might be like, but it was perfect! While I didn't spend time in the common area on the first floor, I always saw people hanging out down there- families with children, too.
The staff was always very friendly and helpful, the room was indeed small- but completely adequate, the facilities were very clean, and the price was really hard to beat.
The hostel is a little bit of a walk from the station, but nothing that should deter anyone from staying there. However, it's worth keeping that in mind if you have many bags. The nice thing about Minami Senju (the train station that is closest to Aizuya Inn) is that it's on the JR and subway lines, so using either is a breeze. That and the fact that its just minutes away from the more popular centers in the city make the location hard to beat as well.
I would definitely stay here again and hope you will too!More
