8/10 Very good

Budget accommodation in great night life location
Budget accommodation in the heart of Shinjuku. No one was there when we wanted to drop off our luggage before check-in at 3:00, and the signs could have been a bit clearer in terms of where we could leave our luggage. Our room was very very small. If you put your suitcase on the floor, there was no room to walk next to the bunk bed. If you are the type of person who likes to spend some time at your hotel, this is not the place for you. The bunk beds are not very robust, so I would also be aware of that, if you are a larger or uncoordinated person. Showers are small but clean. Toilet is shared between many people. That being said, the staff are very approachable and helpful. Their English is also very good. The location is excellent if you want to be close to the night life. Very close to Robot Reaturant and several train stations. I also reccommend checking out Rock On and Club Doo Doo downstairs.

2/10 Poor

二人でとまったが、値段の割に部屋が狭すぎ‼️ 共同トイレも汚れていて、髪の毛やほこり、アンモニアの匂いもきついし、マジ掃除してる?って感じでした。せっかくの旅行の思い出が台無し‼️安いとはいえ、酷すぎ。東京に来てまで、こんな所があるとは夢にも思いませんでした!いい社会勉強になりました。二度と泊まりたくありません!

el lugar es pequeño la limpieza es relativamente buena en general es un buen lugar lo unico que si puede ser incomodo es que solo hay personal un par de horas en la mañana (como de 9am a 11am) y despues te dejan totalmente solo si llegas muy temprano o muy tarde no vas a saber como llegar a tu cama donde dejar tu equipaje o simplemente que hacer la ubicacion es muy buena estas a 5 minutos de una estacion de tren donde puedes usar tu jr pass (shin-okubo) y como a 15 min o 10 caminando a la estacion de shinjuku si lo recomiendo si regresaria a este lugar

4/10 Fair

젊은시절 고생하며 머무는 저렴한 숙소
예약할때 방유형이 2층침대 1개 라고 써있어서 저는 2인실인줄 알고 예약했더니, 그냥 도미토리 입니다. 아주 비좁은 도미토리이구요. 자기가 쓰는 침대가 그 방에서 2층침대다 라는 의미입니다. 제가 쓴 침대는 이불에서 양키들 노린내가 났습니다. 아마 세탁은 했을텐데 냄새가 안빠지는거 같아요. 그리고 이 숙소가 2층에 있는데, 2층까지 엘리베이터가 없습니다. 무거운 캐리어 들고 오시는 분들은 힘들꺼에요. 정말 그냥 일본숙소중에서 큰 짐을 침대옆에 보관이 가능한(캡슐호텔은 안되잖아요?) 그런 저렴(싸구려?) 숙소라고 보시면 됩니다. 가난한 배낭여행자들을 위한 숙소입니다. 그리고 남자방안에 그 샤워실은 배수구 관리를 안햇는지 물이 잘 안빠집니다(ㅠㅠ) 빨리 샤워를 끝내야 넘치는 물이 밖으로 안나갑니다. 그래도 샤워실이 2개라, 옆에꺼 쓰면 되긴 합니다만... 제 경험으로는 다시 찾아갈거 같지가 않네요. 그래도 주변지역은 신주쿠라서 좋은게 많습니다. 배낭여행자들이 머물기에는 괜찮습니다. 그냥 젊은나이에 머물 저렴한 숙소라고 보시면되요

フロントが不在で、セルフチェックイン方式でしたが、特に問題はなかったです。 同部屋の人たちの活動時間帯がかなり幅があり、10時半頃に寝ようとしたのですが、12時近くまで音楽(ロック)をかけていたので、なかなか眠れなかったです。

ドミトリーですが、 ベッド毎にカーテンがあり、区画感はカプセルホテル程度あります なにしろきれいです 立地も歌舞伎町で遊ぶなら最高の立地です リピート確実
