Instrucions to find hostel said . turn right at police box. This has been demolished so it was very difficult to find the hostel. A map would have helped.

A localização é o ponto forte, fica bem pertinho de duas estações de duas linhas diferentes do metrô e de uma estação do JR. Tem vários restaurantes e lojas de conveniência perto. Próximo do parque de Ueno também. A equipe é muito gentil. Os colchões são bem fininhos, única coisa realmente ruim. Tem Wifi no lounge e com sorte é possível acessar do quarto.
