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: 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!
