"Quiet and easy access to City"
06/28/15 SuperDaveG69 Victoria, Canada
This hotel on the 4 - 7 floors of a building just 10 minutes from the Ueno metro station was basic, clean and low key and didn't seem flooded by the usual mob of backpacking tourists. It had a modest kitchen common area and a somewhat spotty internet wi-fi (which seemed to be the case most places we went in Japan), although they did have a hard connected computer by the front desk that you could use for free. The real positive for us was that the hostel felt like it was in a very quiet area, but at the same time was just minutes walk from Akihabara (the electronics district) as well as the Ueno metro station, which seemed to be a great station for accessing most of Tokyo very quickly. The staff were friendly and helpful and the price was good. We really had no issues with this hostel and would recommend it to travellers looking for low key lodgings

"Basic, good accommodation "
04/06/15 Nathalie G
We stayed here for 2 nights on the last leg of our trip. This is a very basic youth hostel, but very accommodating. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was clean. Very simple. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They went online and printed me a map of where i can find takeaway food to bring back to the hostel and i needed to do some washing while i was there so they showed me there washer/dryer facilities. (Note, if you're staying here these are located on the roof on the 8th floor, as you come out of the lift there's a sliding door on your left, go up 2 flights of stairs and there's a door on to the roof. Washing takes an hour and costs ¥200, drying costs ¥100 for 30 mins) Free wifi available but doesnt work very well in the rooms, they do adcise to sit in the hallway or in the lounge room situated on the 7th floor.

"Cheap, decent for a one night stay."

The location is probably the best aspect of this hostel, being only a 10min walk to Akihabara (electric town), and Akihabara train station and about a 15min walk to Ueno park and Zoo. The size of the room is pleasant in comparison to most rooms in Tokyo, offering plenty of space to spread out. This hostel is perfect for a one or two night stay if you are planning to spend most of your time out and about and not in your room, on a budget or staying with 3-4people. Facilities included free wifi in the rooms and in a shared lounge room, linen hire and laundry services. The rooms were fairly clean and did not smell of smoke. They also offer luggage storage from 7am until time of check in.

"Simple, Clean, Helpful"

We're a couple and booked a twin room for 1 night. We slept on a bunkbed and it was wide enough for us to lay together to watch a movie on our computer. The room was quite large for only two people. It's very bare bones and simple but reception had everything we needed (a face towel, a hair dryer, etc). The staff were very knowledgeable about the area and helped us plan our transportation. The lounge has very fast wifi and some travelers had left free untouched food for anyone who might need a fast meal. There's a notebook in the lobby with advice left by other people who have stayed. This is great if you just need the basics. We had no trouble finding the hostel or getting around the area. Large towels are available for a small fee and face towels are for sale for an even smaller fee. The staff were accommodating and flexible about storing luggage early or late. We're both very sensitive to smells in rooms (like cigarettes) and there was no trace of it. Additionally, the heater in our room worked very well and we were able to control the temperature all night. There were also extra blankets in our room. There are also laptops available for rent but we didn't need one.

"Not your best option"
11/03/14 Norway5050
Very friendly staff but disappointing room - hard matresses and really crammed doorm rooms. A lot of travellers which is always nice. Ok wifi as well. Location might be a little off but not too bad - a medium walk and a medium/long subway ride takes you most places in the massive city. If you dont know anything about tokyo districts i would suggest considering hostel locations in harajuku, shibuya or shinjuku districts although its likely more expensive than here.

"Hostel was nice"
02/10/14 kojaky Los Angeles, California
Booked for 3 people room, but they gave us 4 beds (2 bunkbeds). A train station is very near, about a 5 min walk. I get confused with the train station exits and I ended up taking the longer walk. This hostel stay was average and not bad. I would recommend to stay here.

"Die beste Unterkunft in Tokyo"
04/13/15 Reisemaus61 Hamburg, Germany
Ich habe hier 3 Nächte verbracht. Der Eingang gleich neben einem Sushi-Restaurant, welches ebenfalls zu empfehlen ist, fällt nicht gleich ins Auge. Die Rezeption ist im 4.Stock. Ich erfuhr einen herzlichen Emfang. Konnte mein Gepäck bis zum Check In einschließen lassen und bekam gleich meine ersten Detailfragen geklärt. Auf der Suche nach einem guten Kugelfisch Restaurant, konnte man mir am ersten Abend nicht helfen, aber am kommenden Morgen fand ich einen Zettel an meiner Tür, wenn ich nicht schon eines gefunden hätte, jetzt könnte man ein gutes empfehlen. Was für ein Service! Damit nicht genug, der super Service orientierte Manager begleitete mich auch noch kurz dahin und organisierte für mich noch am gleichen Abend, in dem ansonsten ausgebuchten kleinen Restaurant einen Tisch und half bei der Übersetzung der Kugelfisch Menüs. Das war Extraklasse. Mein Zimmer im 8.Stock (801) war super ruhig mit einem kleinen nicht begehbaren Balkon davor und für japanische Verhältnisse geradezu geräumig. Im Vergleich zu Business Hotels oder kleinen Hotels in Japan, die ich die letzten 18 Tage in diversen Orten kennen gelernt hatte, deutlich bequemer und größer. Zudem super sauber. Die Klima-/Heizungsanlage ließ sich super einstellen. Das Fenster öffnen, so dass auch immer ausreichend Sauerstoff da war. Das Bad war blitzsauber und absolut identisch mit Hotels in denen ich 10.000 Yen die Nacht gezahlt habe. Der Longebereich ist ebenfalls super sauber und bietet freie Misosuppe und freien Tee. Neben heißem Wasser und einem Kühlschrank. Hier gibt es auch einen Fernseher. Und last but not least, bat ich darum am Abreisetag noch etwas länger in meinem Zimmer bleiben zu dürfen......und ja ich durfte 1 Stunde länger, ohne Aufpreis. Das ist ein absolutes Novum. Die Lage des Hostels ist perfekt. Viele kleine Restaurants und Bars sind fußläufig zu erreichen, ohne, dass dies irgendeine Lärmbelästigung hervorruft. Es sind innerhalb von 3-5 Minuten vier Bahnstationen zu erreichen. Tokio Station erreicht man mit der JR in 6 Minuten. Damit ist man so zentral, besser geht es nicht. Eine absolute Empfehlung. Ich werde bei meinem nächsten Aufenthalt garantiert wieder hier wohnen. Nochmals Danke an das Team f den tollen Aufenthalt in Tokyo.

"Aceptable"
08/21/14 Nesue10 Vilanova i la Geltru, Spain
Un hostal qué cabe resaltar la buena combinación de metro y tren (importante para moverte con el JR). La habitación privada de tres personas con baño es bastante aceptable aunque el labavo sea tamaño asiático. Buena ubicación de restaurantes (alguno muuuy barato y bueno) y tiendas/mercado. La wifi no llega a la habitación, hay que ir a las zonas comunes. Recomendable, sí.
