  • 8.0.Very good

    Great hostel!! Went above an beyond my expectations for a hostel. Very modern and easy to check in/out. They also provide a “Handy” cell phone to use around town! The only thing I wish they had provided fruit or something other than just toast and hard boiled eggs for breakfast.

    Super well thought out hostel option. Clean and modern. We loved being here. Was noisy at night with hostel residents, but that’s hostels.

    Great Social Hostel!

    Easy check-in, code is provided for room/dorm entry. English was spoken the most at the hostel. Convenience store 2 minute walk away. Luggage storage available if arriving before check-in time, you can leave it in the storage room and go out to explore the area. Roughly 10 minute walk to the metro station or other stations also the lively areas around the station in Shinjuku. Rooftop has a nice quiet spot nobody used when I stayed for 7 days. Breakfast is limited to a few options but enough to get your day started. Dorm room locker is decent size for 13 inch laptop however my 15 inch laptop just fit in with it being positioned on a angle to get the door to lock. Mobile phone is provided in each bed with information, guide and free calling.

    High quality dorm

    V helpful & pleasant staff at check-in. Also the most comfortable dorm bed i've slept in yet, with well designed space for storage & charging phones etc, and a privacy curtain. Well maintained common areas & bathrooms. Well done - I'm coming back!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great to make friends. Ok to rest. Experienced some people getting to bed after me messing with plastic bags (plastic bags, your enemy at hostels), and one time I heard a brief but annoying conversation. However, even like this, miles better than any other hostel I’ve been in other cities when it comes to rest. I just have to compre it to my second hostel in Tokyo, where the silence was full and the rest perfect. Friendly and helpful staff. Great common rooms to have activities and meet other travelers. Activities like bar hopping really help. Decent free breakfast. Great location too. considering the overall price, excellent.

    Unplanned stay

    Staff are very helpful and excellent services(both hostel and bar). Not very close to subway, need to walk a bit but that would not be my concern. Convenience store just opposite the hostel. Self Check In/Out easy and quick. Breakfast pretty good.

    The room was absolutely tiny with service pipes instead of a window, understand it is a hostel but don’t take the private room, as it’s a joke how small it is, absolutely no room for bags
