Liked: Great hostel for the price! The location wasn't as great as I had hoped but it was still very convenient, next to a major station which was good. The facilities were very nice and clean. There are showers in every room and they provided towels and shampoo for free! The beds were surprisingly comfortable. The breakfast was nothing special. We ended up going to a nearby restaurant, called Jonathan's, across from the OIOI department store which had some American style breakfast options. Overall I would recommend this place to stay because it has access to many lines and you can basically go anywhere from there.

Disliked: Breakfast was just toast and soup but when traveling I would rather eat out than at the hotel so it was no big deal. Thats all I could complain about cause everything was as expect for a hostel.

Liked: It was really close to Ikebukuro station, which is one of the biggest stations in Tokyo so you could get around comfortably. Air condition in room was cool, since it was really hot outside. Value for money was pretty good for Tokyo.

Disliked: I stayed in dorm which was kinda cramped but it wasn't bad really to be honest. And for that price in Tokyo in this near everything you can't expect that much more really.

Liked: Location is really good if you want to meet the busy soul of Tokyo (Shinjuku - 10min. Shibuya - 15min. on the JR Line). Rooms are equipped with Internet Lan Cable, Tv, and AC. Coin Washmashine and dryer next to Reception. 24h Coffe & Restaurant across the street. Really good value for the money!

Disliked: Nothing
