Liked: The location is great- literally a 2 minute walk from the Subway. I didn't explore much beyond the main street (I spent all of my time in the nearby Shinjuku,) but there are breakfast restaurants nearby. The bests were roomy and soft and the facilities were very clean.

Disliked: This is not an authentic "capsule" hotel at all. It is similar to every other hostel dorm that I've seen. The only difference here is that the bunks are walled off. If you're not after the authentic Japanese "capsule" experience, then this isn't a problem. The staff always seemed overwhelmed. We had to wait in line for 5-10 minutes every time we wanted to speak to the front desk. When we asked for recommendations, and they didn't seem well informed or friendly. They did have some maps available for reference.

Liked: I thought the wood capsule beds were pretty cool. However the mattress inside was very thin and made sleeping pretty uncomfortable. The location is good, only like a two minute walk from the subway and like one stop away from Shinjuku.

Disliked: This hostel isn't much to look at, it's definitely deteriorated in parts, like the common area on the 9th floor which was pretty grubby. It looks like they haven't done any updating in awhile and its definitely showing in areas at the hostel. This doesn't really affect your stay too much, especially when you are out exploring Tokyo, but if you are looking for a nice looking place to stay, this isn't it. For someone just looking for a place to sleep its definitely a good option.

Liked: In don't know why people are winging about this place. We loves our stay here and couldn't fault it. The Wooden capsule beds are awesome! It's very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Yes the bathroom is in the basement. But so what, its a hostel not a hotel. Good atmosphere too. And great area!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: It's in a very convenient place; the beds are more then enough; there is free coffee & tea downstairs; in general, if you're planning to stay in Tokyo for not too much money, that's the place for you.

Disliked: 100yens for 10minutes of shower; they close between 2am and 4:30am and you cannot either get in or out; ATTENTION: you cannot have the third pin in your cable, because Japanese outlets usually have only two holes. You can buy a cheap adapter (300Y) near in a FamilyMart. You can also borrow one in the lobby, but the number is limited. The IC is set up very low and people tend to get cold in the night.

Liked: The location was super convenient. I felt like I was in the heart of Tokyo with everything a stones throw away. If you want to have a Tokyo experience with a helpful staff (one that has no problem giving you maps and advice on places to see) I highly reccommend this hostel.

Disliked: I have no complaints about the location or layout of Ace inn.

Liked: I think is perfect combination price/facilities. The common area is perfect, little kitchen, a lot couches, tv, is clean ....wifi is working and fast in all building. the showers price is 100 yenes not too much. Tokyo is a big city so if you want to discover all neighbor is impossible to choose one unique and perfect hostel... This one is closed to metro station Akebonobashi so is ok
