Liked: It was clean, and was in a pretty good location.

Disliked: It was quite difficult to meet other travellers as the place mostly catered to Japanese people who mostly seem to keep to themselves. The common areas were always dead.

Liked: Cool place. Clean, comfortable and well presented.

Disliked: Check out time is 10am and it's kinda far from the bar areas, so it's not really a suitable place to stay for nightlife lovers. Getting kicked out at 10am after a night out (which included waiting until 5am for the subway to start up again) wasn't very pleasant!

Liked: Staff is very friendly, there were two guys from the staff in my room, they were nice and helpful, they hung out with us to a festival and were explaining to us many things. Since the first day I met one of them, he gave me tips on places to visit and how to get there.

Liked: It was super clean. They make you take off your shoes when you enter, so the floors are very clean. The bathrooms are especially clean.

Disliked: The property was a little hard to find. It was hidden in an alleyway. Luckily, a kind man on the way walked me there.

Liked: Very helpful directions on how to use the subway to get to main attractions. They also provided a map of the immediate area. Free wifi. Separate shower stalls. Reasonably priced laundry facilities. Close to market, shrine, 24hr. sushi.

Disliked: Stain on carpet made me think it was flooding. Witnessed it being scrubbed everyday, but it was just a tough stain.

Liked: Cosy communal area, easy to meet people. The beds are the comfiest beds I have slept on in a hostel. The staff are super nice and you get free snacks to eat in the kitchen!

Disliked: The hostel didn't have a lift, quite difficult for people with heavy or alot of luggage to get up three narrow flights of stairs.

Liked: Staffs was very friendly, and good looking :)) room clean and comfortable.

Disliked: only noise in night is quite uncomfortable because we stayed next the common area, so when people have a party or talk until late night, it was noisy. Anyway, good place to stay!

Liked: Very good location: near subway, ROX building (shops, supermarket open 24h/24h), Asakusa temple Very kind and helpful staff (help for luggage, place recommandation, chat)

Disliked: no elevator: difficult for big luggage not possible to cook but this is not a real issue because there are restaurants/convenience store/supermarket nearby and microwave available bad noise insulation: a nightmare when people chat late at night in the living room

Liked: Great location, fantastic staff, and super clean. Met more people here than in the other hostels I stayed in, and the staff was generally younger people who would hang out with us and join us as we explored Tokyo. It felt very familial.

Disliked: The bed was a little hard, and the lockers were rather small.

Liked: Incredible location and awesome experience in general. the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the entire place was super clean all the time. the beds are really really comfortable and spacious as well. bathrooms were super clean. definitely reccomend to anyone visiting tokyo. we didn't research the area much before going, but it turns out Asakusa was our favorite part of Tokyo. Everyone was super friendly and it was a really pretty area. Lots to do in the area, and it's only a short metro ride to the normal attractions in tokyo :)

Disliked: no complaints at all.

12 May 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Quick and convenient, a true traveler's hostel.

Disliked: The beds were cumbersome and there were so many people coming in at odd hours that sleeping was tough. There is one air conditioner in a room full of bunks and it's hardly enough to keep them a reasonable temperature, let alone odorless. There is also no where to keep your bags other than the bunk or in a pile downstairs (although, to be fair, there are cameras on them 24-7)
