Liked: This hostel was brilliant. The location was perfect, on a quiet side street in a more relaxed part of the city, but only one stop on the JR Line or a short walk away from Akihabara, and easy to get to anywhere else in the city. It was really clean, both in the rooms and the common areas. The showers were hot and powerful and free shampoo and body wash were provided. A free breakfast of hard boiled eggs, toast and jam was available from 7-10 am, as well as a well-equipped kitchen if you'd rather make your own food. The common room was great, it was easy to meet other people, and there was free tea or coffee available whenever you wanted it. The hostel is only a short walk to loads of bars and karaoke places too. An additional massive plus compared to other hostels we've stayed in were the curtains on the beds which provided a bit of privacy. Each bed also had a shelf, a reading light and a socket, all of which came in handy and make staying in a dorm more bearable.

Disliked: I understand it's normal to take your shoes off inside in Japan, but there was no shoe rack to put them in on our floor, so you had to put them in your locker whenever you were in the room. This wasn't a massive issue, but was inconvenient and meant they didn't dry after a day of heavy rain.

Liked: I had a great stay at Anne Hostel, the staff were friendly and helpful and the common area was a very sociable place to meet other travellers. I stayed in a 10 bed female dorm and it was clean and reasonably spacious. Each bed had a curtain to draw across so you felt like you had some privacy. The bathrooms were clean and facilities were good generally. Free breakfast was a real bonus.

Disliked: Claire left no negative feedback.

Liked: I stayed here for 10 nights in early March and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The free breakfast is simple but exactly what is needed to prepare you for a long day of sightseeing. What makes this place is the atmosphere(or at least when I was here, the breakfast brings everyone together and it was fantastic to meet so many like minded travellers) and even more so, the staff. They are a credit to this place and really couldn't do enough to help everyone; and their English is fantastic, which is perfect for an uneducated westerner like myself! Also, the lack of space in the rooms, every bed has a shelf which was plenty big enough for my massive bag, what more do you need? You're in one of the most amazing cities in the world, you should be spending as little time in your room as possible so why would you need so much space! Finally, the location, Tokyo is a huge city and you're always going to be far from something. Yes it's not particularly close to Shinjuku or Shibuya but is very close to Asakusa, Akihabara and Oshiage(the Skytree tower). In a country with as good a rail network as Japan I wouldn't really let the location bother you too much, you're still really near the centre, if Tokyo has a centre! And it sits on both a subway and a JR line with direct trains to Shinjuku etc. Anyway, I really couldn't recommend this place more!

Disliked: If I had to pick a few negative points it would be that the top bunks are very creaky so whenever the person above me moved it was very loud, a lack of soap and hand towels at the washbasins, the common room closing at 12 and maybe the shower cubicles could use a bit more room outside to dry and dress yourself. But these are all very minor issues.

Liked: The atmosphere of this hostel was great. Travelers were able to gather in the common room and organize together. The entire property is extremely clean. The location is nearby a number of great siteseeing destinations. The staff is extremely helpful and is fluent in English. Overall, just a great place. Japan seems to have the best hostels in the world.

Disliked: All the security lockers were on a different floor than my room, which made it inconvenient to store my valuables. Make sure to have a luggage lock for your bags if you happen to be on the 4th floor.

Liked: Very clean with nice toilets and showers. Beds have curtains for privacy and WiFi works in the bedrooms, plus there are power points by every bed. Free breakfast is great, staff are helpful and it is only 5 minutes away from a Metro and JR station. Lots of information for things to do in Tokyo. Definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at and perfect for recovering from a long haul flight from Europe!

Disliked: The washer and dryer were expensive (300¥ each) and not effective. The lockers do not fit rucksacks.
