The friendly, helpful staff will make you feel welcome and you can enjoy this cosy Japanese-style hostel complete with 'tatami' rooms. After you have used the facilities, including internet access and TV room, it’s time to start exploring the sights.

Like the other Japanese hostels where I've stayed, this one is not in the best location in Tokyo, and it does not seem to be all that popular. It's newer than the other hostels I've used (Kurashiki, Hiroshima, Matsuyama), and the staff was generally friendly. It does feel rather cramped, but I know it's hard to find space in Tokyo.

Le confort, la propreté, la peoximité, la gentillesse du personnel ainsi que la sécurité du lieu ont fait que j'ai passé un excellent séjour à Tokyo. Par contre celle de Séoul est une honte, si je peux me le permettre. Pour plus cher par nuit qu'à Tokyo, on nous a proposer de dormir dans un placard à balais, une chambre de 4m2 sans fenêtre pour 50€ la nuit par personne. Nous avons râlé et réussi à avoir un peut mieux... Enjoy! Et merci pour Tokyo ❤️

The hostel was very clean, modern showers and bathrooms. Free coffee & tee in the kitchen. I was very happy with my stay even though I didn'nt spend so many hours there. Staff was friendly and came and opened the door in the middle of the night. I would definately recommend this hostel to any other travellers.

the hostel is very modern and clean.a good tip could be to watch out for dirt appearing under taps and in the overflow hole on the sinks.i noticed this when I had a drink from the taps.but otherwise the bathrooms/toilets and hostel were spotlessly clean.thanks
